Nifty. Here's hoping that it actually looks that nice while playing. That ship and the malboro were awesome, and I liked a lot of the clothing. Also: BACKPACKS. Badass.

Uh-oh, I spotted a cloak on the guy leaning against the wall when we get the first shot of the guy messing with Guild Leves.

Now about the trailer overall: SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I don't want to be a negative nancy, but so far I have not seen any backpacks or cloaks in any of the in-game rendered parts of the trailer, it is still very possible they wont have backpacks or cloaks, considering not one person had a backpack or a cloak in that opening scene with the taru macking on the hume. It is easily a possibility but I wouldn't count chickens to fast. Also no notice of jewelry representation.


I know they'll probably not really be in the game, but it's fun to play make believe sometimes... Anyway, here's hoping.

Well its not much, but the tech demo for FFXIV had visible cloaks and looking back on it, the visuals look on par or even sub par compared to what the current version of FFXIV looks like so the idea that back pieces being visible still has a distinct possibility.

As for back packs... im very doubting to that one since I can't remember a single game that has attempted that >.> and there is a reason lol. Its more believable to think we have a magical invisible bag that can some how store 50 beds inside it than actually see it visible on you and still have that potential XD. (note im just joking around heh).

One thing I noticed was the complete lack of moogles of any kind. In fact, moogles still haven't shown up in a single screenshot, concept art, or video for FFXIV. Could it be that they're... *crosses fingers*

Things I learned from the trailer:

1. There won't be any "new" races.
2. Thieves will be a playable class in FFXIV.
3. My 3 years as a Mithra are over.( I just don't like the ears)


I agree... They are really long and skinny and don't look catlike at all. However, mithra's ears didn't look catlike to me either...

I am happy with the furry, thicker tail though. It actually looks like a tail and not a rope hanging out of her ***...

For your number one.. It saddens me. You may be right unless moogles turn out to be playable. They are strangely absent..

I have to disagree, I like the new mithra, and long and skinny is like a spot on description of a cat Bustopher Jones is not the standared.

Also I still can't can forgive them for thwarting my Mr. Mistoffelees BLM by not allowing male mithra!! oh, well, ah never was there ever, a character as clever, as my magical Mr. Mistoffelees....

Yah if you read this and are wondering why your feet are so cold right now it's cuz I just rocked your socks off with 2 Cats references, suck it!

The only thing I wish they'd kept on the Miqo were the Mithra noses.

Impressive musical score, although I am sure going to miss Mizuta. Can't forget the classical Zi'Tah theme. Great trailer, nice blend of CG and ingame. Hopefully we're treated to a lot of CG cutscenes playing through the story although unfortunately, it won't be our characters participating in the CG but we'll see.

No the 2005 tech demo done at the Microsoft E3 conference for the 360. GDC 2008 confirmed that tech demo was preliminary work on project rapture which later became FFXIV. A lot can and has changed since that tech demo, but it shows they were at least 'contemplating' having visible back pieces that far back.

the facial structure of the mithra in the new trailer reminds me a lot of ffxii's viara and i like it :)
saw a white hauberk looking armor in there and i believe those backpacks are most likely to be just cosmetic.

...and seriously, i dont get the idea of why anyone wanting anymore new races in FF, the current 5 races already catered to the different 'taste' of people wanting for their character
hume>> normal, taru>> small and cute, elven>> cool, mithra>> girlish, galka>> manly.

unless you're the type who only play as a horde>> monsterous lol

Good signs of areas you can customize. Also, the Roegadyn/Miqo'te scene seems to be an example of facial customization. The Roegadyn had a wide-bridged nose, and the Miqo'te had a long pointy nose.

Probably, they said only a trailer would be present at TGS at Gamescon last month. Apparantly Tanaka is there, but everyone that approached him couldn't get anything out of him. I think the most that was caught was what ffxivcore.com was able to wrangle up.

"First, what we found out about FFXIV:

•There will be no new info released at Tokyo Game Show

•They are discussing a beta system for Japanese users, but nothing is decided yet

•Newest information will be available via the newsletter"

Elmer did say Dengeki had a new interview for FFXI, but thats not what most this board cares about :P.

***** backpacks when we have been teased with Magitek armor.

I would gladly have only 1 free inventory slot if I can rock some Magitek.
