So it seems as though you'll basically be tweeking points back and forth as you switch Jobs out on the field. Which makes not being able to switch armor during battle sound about right.
My attention to FF14 news comes and goes, so I am not fully caught up on everything the general community might know. Is this saying that equip switching during active mode or battle is not allowed, or just speculating?
That's a subject I am really interested in hearing about. Not being able to freely switch all equipment for every single move would be a lot different, and I would kind of enjoy it, really. FFXI can get a bit overwhelming, having to get whole sets of gear for just a single move, and it gets frustrating (especially when playing the ps2 version with limited macros :P).
Being able to only switch gear in passive mode would be kind of nice, in my opinion. Would be nice to have to balance out gear and play to your strengths, instead of squeezing every possible point of benefit out of a single slot everytime you do anything. XD
