It's been a while since we've first seen this picture. After all of the new info we've received, is there anything else we can pick out of it? Does the picture still even apply or is it just old concept art at this point? The lalafell look more like taru's the lala's if you ask me...

Does the presence of ninja wapons and great swords still indicate ninjas and some great sword using class? -and what of the little kid with the horns all the way at the left?

Has anybody noticed something new about the picture and not said anything yet?

Honestly I can't pick out anything that hasn't really been touched upon. I can see a person wearing a curer (WHM) garment and another person looks like a conjurer. The guy in the front wearing the red and white doesn't appear have a weapon (from what I see) but to me he looks similar to what I'd imagine a gunner would wear. When I first saw him, for some reason Corsair came to mind.

There's two more people on the left of the screen that looks like they would be part of the disciples of the magic category. But I can't really tell what they are.

I'd imagine that there are more disciples of magic classes that they haven't announced yet. So maybe one of the two on the right fall in the new class category.

EDIT: By the way, good idea bringing this picture back into the light.

Back in my day, before any of you ever even thought of posting here, we found this pic as soon as it came out n' figured that there was a male miqo'te all manly look'n n' such, and that there in the corner was some kind of gria sum'n or another. We also thought by now we'd have final stage beta, thousands of different jobs n' fly'n cars.

I don't see a great sword at all. As a matter of fact I only see one very large sword leaning up against a table. The size difference between the races could easily explain this. In FFXI a Tartaru greatsword was roughly the size of a Galka dagger.

The big sword in the front middle, I dunno if thats a great sword. Honestly I've never seen a greatsword that was sheathed. Though there is another sword to the left next to a galka that looks like it could be a greatsword.

Anyways, I thought in an interview they said something about more weapons being implemented that haven't been talked about yet. They just haven't decided whether to give it to a current class or give it to a new class. Either way, I'd bet that greatswords make an appearance.

Really the only things that grabs my attention from this, is the fact that all 4 races are just chillin together. Unlike FFXI when they were pretty much against each others nations, they seem to be enjoying each others company here.

It's just concept art, things change.

As for the gria it could turn out to be a non playable race simiar to the Qiqirn in FF11.

It appears to be a Gria. Check this out -> http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Gria


EDIT: Just wanted to say that if they make Gria a playable race and they don't make male miqo'te I'll be ****** off. Also, that sword still looks like a great sword to me.

That lizard is my best friend. Sadly, he feels like he's been neglected in development. :'(

If you want to help, you can try writing a letter. INSIST upon him getting the place of honor he was promised!

Thanks mithrandrk. Didn't SE say long time ago that they was going to be a new race, as in other then those that have so far been presented? Personally, I'm happy with those we already know of, but I was wondering if any one else has also heard this, or had a link to where SE said/hinted at it?

SE have never said that there will be a new race, or even hinted for that matter. They simply avoided the question early on which understandably gave people hope. There will not be a new race, FACT.
