I'm really hoping that they keep the number of DoM abd DoW classes down. Maybe add an eastern themed class that can vary between Samurai and Ninja, a pet class(I'd like a dragon pet, DRG FTW), and a summoner-esque class.
Instead of adding more than that, they should just expand on all the existing classes, it got a little ridiculous in FFXI with 20 different jobs, MANY of which just filled the same roles.
I have a theory that they went with the new class/job names since they didn't want to get stuck in the FF rut......if you have a "PLD", then you have to have a "DRK", if you have a "WHM", then you have to have a "BLM", then the non-magical knight "WAR", and lighter rogue type "THF", it's FF so "SMN" is a given, and "RDM" for the medium between the mages.
That's eight right there, not even taking into account expectations of it being an MMO, so more common MMO class types, lacking of Asian themed classes probably isn't even allow to be mention in the SE offices, AND the need for original classes, it would create a lot of fluff like FFXI.
I feel they're almost right at the sweet spot where they are now.
