Do you guys think there will be a Beastmaster build? I really hope so, I think its one of the most interesting classes to play as. Although with SE making it more solo friendly I'm sure it will be looked at and played differently this time around.

Thoughts?

Well SE on the wiki base we have a listing for 'Horticulturist/Rancher' due to references indicating that certain mobs may be domesticated. But its under the Disciplines of Land So it probably won't be combat orientated (though you should be able to make any class combat like hypothetically with the armory system).

I wasn't a big fan of playing as a beastmaster (to hard for me) but I'd like to see some pet classes make it into FFXIV.

BST was the 2nd (and last) job I leveled to cap in FFXI and taking it up was one of my favorite experiences in gaming. I took on the job as a sort of "last hurrah" after leaving XI months earlier to free time for the impending arrival of my first child. BST gave me the ability to play XI again in an environment when "at any moment" AFKing became the norm for me. Once my BST hit 75 I was amazed at the Power the job had in certain situations, and I admit I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't included in the initial release of XIV.

But, as mentioned, XIV will give us the freedom to solo any class... so the need is somewhat diminished. I'd still love to see it return, and I remind myself that BST didn't come until the second round of jobs in XI. I would be surprised if pet classes don't make an appearance in XIV eventually, and I'll keep my toes crossed that the great gameplay we found in Beastmaster is echoed in whatever pet class job we see in the future.

Man, I hope there will be a beastmaster class and that it plays similar to FFXI bst. Some of my best times were bst trios, soloing in Boyada Tree, and being part of a bst LS that did regular all bst events like BCNMs and those dhamselfly NM in that CoP zone.

I agree BST class was an awesome experience, and although I didnt cap it due to time restraints, it was the funnest class IMO to play as. Hope they bring something like it back...

I loved Bst as well. It was the one job I could actually take up into the high levels and be satisfied with it. Once the despawn patch came out, I was a very sad panda as it kinda cramped my play style. Even my LSmates would comment on my remarkable skills at juggling pets.

I'd love to see a taming class in XIV as well :)

One of my favorite FFXI memories is duoing Agas (NM in Boy. Tree that dropped Sleepga II Scroll) with a fellow BST

I was level 63 and he, if i remember, was level 66.

That was one of the most epic NM fights I ever had.

I was hoping for a BST class as well. It was probably the most challenging job I played in FFXI and I loved it.

I loved trio'ing Haku for my Ohat. I loved being able to do things most jobs could not or would not. And most of all I liked being able to xp when and where I wanted, seeing pplaces that I would not have normally seen and not having to deal with the elitist attitudes.

BST Suxxx :P

Seriously though, BST was probably the best time I ever had on FFXI. The Boyahda Tree was one of my favorites. Soloing Aquarius and Agas, linking a ton of spiders due to a mischarm and running for my life. God, those times were great.

I'd be really disappointed if SE didn't include some type of beastmaster in FFXIV but it wouldn't stop me from playing.

I would definitely like to see a BST type class. It's my second "main" job in FFXI and very enjoyable for both the challenge and the freedom it gives me.
