I haven't seen any hints about the existence of airships, am I missing them? Airships to me are just one of those Final Fantasy things that has to be there in some form for it to really be a FF game. It's one of those Sci-Fi staples that has to be there, Just as the TARDIS shall always be a Blue police box, so should my Final Fantasy game contain an Airship.

1 of the screenshots of possibly Limsa Lominsa shown 2 ships which could be airships.
if they are not, you shouldnt worry if airships would not be in the game, coz most likely u will see them in the game.

and if you are talking about those flying ******, SE said those might not be plyaers-controlled.
but we might be able to fly with those in expansions, who knows?

After FFXI, I honestly wouldn't miss them.

Just for clarification, I bot, sell gil, buy gil, MPK, party naked through the dunes, power level, play as a Ranger, quit when they nerf it and complain, play as a Beastmaster, quit when then nerf it and complain, make posts for and against RMT, monopolize NMs, create elitist groups, run casinos, steal gil, hack accounts, and stare at you awkwardly with my left eye.

I mean, other than an Airship, what else could we fly over the World in?

What if the flying totem poles were a sort of 1-person airship, like how flight paths worked in WoW? Instead of having to wait 10 minutes for the airship to arrive, you'd just pay up and get one of those heading straight to where you're going. They wouldn't be player controlled, but you would choose the destination and it would go straight there.

Just a theory, based off of absolutely nothing

Yagudo wings fashioned with wax. What could possibly go wrong?

Im pretty sure one of the jp videos out is a battle on an airship could be wrong though.

Silly goose, everyone knows those raise TP. And they're made with G. Bird Feathers.

They did mention the portals that open up after one completes a guildleeve, mayhap portals are the wave of the future. It'd be rather nice to be able to transport long distances on a self made schedule rather than being at the mercy of the airship timetables.

Let's not forget the Garlean Empire's bit flying "ship". But yeah there was the screen shot with the baloon boats docked over a city too.

Just don't fly to close to the sun, Icarus.

Of course FF14 will have airships. That's a but like asking if FF14 is going to have a charcater named Cid, or cacti with legs running around. :)

Hopefully, this time, SE has learned that while airships were helpful in getting from place to place that their players don't like waiting upwards of ten minutes. Hopefully.

Well perhaps they will take a page from XII and give us a choice, an express rout or something more scenic. The express might be a bit more cash for a small fast private craft, maybe with a cut scene of it rocketing between locals before you step off into the air port. Then the cheeper version could be the public transport kind of like in XI.

I'm hoping it will be like this. Getting to the airport dock just as it was leaving was a serious mood killer in XI.

Surely nothing. First thing I am going to do is fly high up and see if there is some hidden sun dungeon in the sky.



And of course there are going to be airships. I'd be willing to bet anything that there are airships and that there will be a cid with some connection to said airships.

I have at least 8 games that I can recall that say I am right :3 .

I'm 99% sure there will be some kind of flying vehicle for us to use. Whether we can actually drive them, though, is another matter. They might or might not call them "Airships."

While I have no proof, I don't think squeenix is going to give us drivable flying ships of some sort, or at least not right out of the gate.

Black Chocobos to fly around would be cool. If the world is seamless then it should definitely be done.

Because this is Final Fantasy, there will be airships, will that be the chosen method of high-speed non-character magical transportation? We'll see.
