Recently the FFXIV official site was updated with new information on some of the classes that will be making an appearance in FFXIV. However much information is still left unsaid and because of this, I would like us to take what knowledge we already have and make some educated guesses on what the rest of the classes will be.
This is just a speculation thread for fun, which I know some people can't handle and will chime in to bash and blurt out "JUST WAIT TILL THE GAME COMES OUT GAWD" who don't get the concept of a FFXIV forum before the game is actually released. So don't let them ruin your fun!
So far, the classes we know about are:
Disciples of War:
Disciples of Magic:
Disciples of the Hand:
Disciples of the Land:
This is what we know so far. And going off this information as I said before, I want everyone to make the best educated guesses they can. Put some thought behind it and tell us what you think will be other introduced classes, what they will do, how they will operate, and please include what Main Class they would be categorized under. Also try to stay with a naming theme similar to what they're already using. I want to see how close some of us get with this.
My guesses are:
Disciples of the Land:
Lumberjack (Some one to collect the logs and wood of the lands, to cut down tree's, etc.)
Miner (A miner obviously, some one to mine ore and rock, stone, precious jewels, etc.)
Angler (A fisherman of course.)
Disciples of War
Treasure Hunter (I'm going with this name over "Assassin" because just about all mmo's including all final fantasy games has some one to fit this type of role, and treasure hunter just seems like the proper name to give this job in the world of FFXIV)
Then there is another idea I had. I doubt it will be implemented and it is not as serious as the others, but it seemed like an interesting concept to entertain, so I thought it wouldn't hurt to share the idea. I don't even know what category it would go under, but...
"Deliverer" I know, it sounds crazy right? But how many "fetch quests" and "run around" quests and missions are there in games? What if their was some one who specialized in it, and by leveling up they got better movement speed gear, they got craftier in what routes they could use, they got larger inventories, and they could even help in delivering things to the citizens of Hydalyn. It could even be used as a new delivery system if you wanted to go really far with the idea. I know it's a wacky concept and won't come about but I just wanted to share it.
Well those are my main idea's so far, with a more concept and far out idea thrown in there. Hopefully this thread will keep all the job speculation threads to a more minimal level as well. So tell me, what do you think the remaining classes will be and what will they do?
