There is speculation that some classes are allowed more than one set of weapons, or one weapon and two-handed shield in this case. Lets say for example if you equip a Mace or a Two-Handed Shield, you are still the same class.
Could it be that everyone weapon or tool will say what class it will be when equipped?
A dagger with whm stats that makes you a "healer"
A dagger with thf stats that makes you a "rogue"
Then you can have hammers that are used as blunt weapons in combat but only goldsmiths can equip but not rule out a giant 2 hand hammer/mace for gladiators.. Or allowing archers to equip a bow and a sword if he needs to get up close.
edit: actually I kind of like that. Its a simple reversal to what FFXI already has. instead of a long list of what jobs can equip each piece of gear you see the one job you will become. short and simple. Edited, May 10th 2010 9:14pm by thorazinekizzez
