Can anyone make out what that item graphic says? My Japanese is horrible enough without trying to make out what it says through the small size and blurry-ness..

Upper Left: "ジョブ謂...." (Jobu Omou...)
Is "Job reasoning..."
I can't quite make out the second radical in the first kanji or even the second one at all.

Bottom Left: 力士 (Rikishi)
Is "Wrestler"..?
Actually I forgot if this is the word for "Monk" in FFXI or not.

The Item in the lower right is too hard to make out for me.

Isn't it clear? They've changed Final Fantasy XIV to Final Fantasy XI: Dance Dance Revolution.

Nothing at all to do with XIV, everything to do with me clicking the "New Subject" link on the wrong ZAM tab.

Whatever, forum is a forum.

Thanks for the reply patient, I'm mostly curious about the lower right part.

Yeah, note the rock salt at the bottom right and the "referee" tarutaru. All I know is that's a match I'd actually watch.

Ah, I forgot to include this in the writeup since they didn't put the Sumo pic in the assets!

During the Job Adjustments phase, they would cycle through each slide as they read about the jobs. At one point, they cycled back to Summoner, and I thought it would be getting even MORE adjustments. Then they cycled to PUP, back to SMN, and it appeared like something was wrong.

Suddenly, the presentation "broke" and cycled to 力士 "Sumo Wrestler"

One of the long-standing in-jokes on the JP community is a Sumo job being added to FFXI. I guess they decided to oblige the fans with a mock-up. The item at the bottom-right is salt traditionally used to purify the ring.
