Do you expect to see, or want to see, skills that are tied to specific armor types in addition to weapon skills?
We already know that we'll learn skills by using weapons, but what about wearing armor?
I'm thinking of a FFIX style system where using armor long enough allows you to learn skills associated with it.
Would you expect to see this in FFXIV? Heavy armor types give defense skills? Shields give blocking or bashing skills? Arcane (magic) armor gives magic resistance skills or buffing skills?
Or do you expect learned skills to be tied only to weapons?
I would like to see armor skills. The way most armor has been is that it automatically comes with high defense or resistance to certain magic types.
The more you use it, the better you get at using it, and the more protection it offers. (I apologize if FFXI had something like this...I don't remember).
Maybe a magic robe can offer resistance to either fire or ice, where the resistance skill increases every time you are hit by a fire or ice spell until the skill is learned.
Do you expect something like this? Something different?
Would you even like to see it?
