what would it be? Personally I would ask if endgame is going to be more instance-based or more world-based. I absolutely detest instances (although dynamis-xarcabard was fun), and loved HNM/sky camping.

I'd want to know what all the starting classes are for each discipline. Something tells me they haven't all been revealed yet.

Will there even be "classes" and how do Disciplines compare to what we commonly consider to be "classes"?

I'm asking because a lot of people continue to mention the word "class", when referring to this game, but I think it's going to be very open ended and no preset class...unless you consider "sword user" or "axe user" classes.

But then what are disciplines for? What are the point of disciplines if there are multiple weapons associated with each one? I'm just very confused on what the purpose of a Discipline is. It doesn't seem like a 'job', but more like a collective group of jobs.

Will there be a Merit or Talent type of system for further customization of your char?

Edit: Better yet, How many different types of weapons can we choose from at release?

I'd wanna know if there's gonna be a dark knight-esq class that goes deeper into the whole concept of basiclly being a sith lord and ravaging your body to fight with darkness.

I'de like to know if we will be allowed to bring people back into our houseing units.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

instead of questions, can they be threats?

"make a corsair or pirate-esque job....or else!"

and no, a thief/rogue isn't going to cut it.

Are items such as potions going to be more widely available and used as in regular Final Fantasy games compared to FFXI? e.g. Buying them for 200 gil each and having them be stackable up to 99?

Kachi''s question, basically.

If character customization via gameplay was already covered, I'd be curious about character customization ala Appearance Slots / Armor Dye / Armor Model Swap.

Fact: They've shown a cactuar, a chocobo, a malboro, an ahriman, and all the FFXI player races, but they have yet to show a SINGLE moogle from the world of FFXIV.

Inquiring minds want to know.

my question. Can you tell me everything?

It sums up it all because really there is no good answer. Everyone here has good questions but none of them are better than the others. We all want to know it all.

I think we just need someone to fly overseas to their headquarters, take someone hostage on behalf of ZAM and get us some answers!

You know, if it were an English-speaking company, it wouldn't be difficult at all to take someone hostage and coerce the information from them, or probably even to find someone to extort. Without getting caught, no less.

But with the Japanese there's the overseas thing, need to involve a translator... it's just too much hassle.

Not that I'm condoning such practices.

Hopefully the japanese police will be similar to ffxi GM's. Once the hostage situation is reported, they'll use the good 'old "thank you for contacting us! We will investigate this matter!" and then nothing will ever come from it.

Haha, well that's a bit riskier. Naturally the suspicion would be cast on employees if a boss is taken hostage, and that's the beauty of it. If you were to kidnap someone like Tanaka, suspicion would be cast on disgruntled and recently terminated employees foremost (though in Japan I think it is a bit more common for otaku rage crimes to be transgressed upon people purely for what they perceive to be crimes against intellectual property, so maybe they're prepared for that).

But a few dozen employees are much easier to check out than a million potentially rabid fans with no solid personal information trails.

Again, not that I'm condoning such a thing.



...but if you do, be sure to tell us what he says.

This isn't a question so much as a command lol! I want to be able to play as a goblin. Then I could have an awesome goblinoid name like Mischiefmaker Assgoblinix.
In all seriousnes, I would like to play as a goblin, but I would much prefer to know about ninja. Yea, I know there is no ninja job, but what class will give me access to a ninja-like build.

This kinda makes me want to go over to the FFXI forums and have a best made-up goblin name contest. haha.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but they've already confirmed that at this time there will be no male Miqo'te. I guess there's a chance they'll add it.

I mean, "If enough people want it, we'll add it," is practically their catchphrase, so I don't know how they can continue to justify not adding it.
