Q: Before heading out on an adventure, you can change your class at whim, but are there any limitations to this? For example, only being able to carry 3 weapons, and thus change between 3 classes, at once.
A: At this stage, there are no limitations in place. However, there is the possibility we may adjust this as we go forward.
Q: Can you change classes in battle? If it's only possible when not in "battle mode," could one just sheathe their weapon and then change classes?
A: In FFXIV, there is a Passive Mode, wherein you recover HP as you move, and Active Mode, which is when your weapon is in-hand and you are poised to fight. Players can only switch classes while they are in Passive Mode.
Q: Can you switch between these two modes at will?
A: Yes, you can change modes anywhere you like.
So it looks like you can switch if your in passive mode. Hope this helps out.
What I'm thinking is when a monster attaked you you stay in Active mode till the battle is over.
