These changes may be future coming or they may have existed in beta but were removed. Anything can change and nothing may exist at all in the future. Most of these are skills but there's some other information. This information was found by myself and taken from the client.

Also note that for current classes there are numerous higher ranked versions of existing abilities with increased effectiveness. These will not be listed.

AGAIN, ANY OF THIS CAN CHANGE AT ANY TIME. DON'T YELL IF THEY CHANGE THEIR PLANS.

General

- The ability to toggle helmet display.
- The ability to see DoT damage within your chat log.
- Ifrit and Titan are confirmed. Based on how they're placed in the files it looks like there will be more, but that's just speculation.
- It is likely that the cap will be raised to 75.
- Battle Regimens will deal increased damage along with their special effects.

New Classes

- Currently unimplemented: Arcanist, Assassin, Bard, Enforcer, Fencer, Flayer, Musketeer, Mystic, Samurai, Shepherd, and Stavesman. The classes below are likely to be implemented first. They already have guild marks set aside for them and everything. Arcanist seems most likely to be first.

[Fencer]
- A Disciple of War.
- Their skill is called "Fencing."
- Skilled at parrying (higher parry chance).
- Their weapon deals Piercing damage.

[Enforcer]
- A Disciple of War.
- Their skill is called "Club."
- Their weapon deals Blunt damage.

[Musketeer]
- A Disciple of War.
- Their guild is currently located in Limsa Lominsa.
- Their skill is called "Gunnery."
- Their weapon deals Projectile damage.

[Mystic]
- A Disciple of Magic class.
- Their skill is called "Mysticism."
- Their weapon deals various element damage similar to other magic users. Their primary elements are Fire, Wind, and Lightning (identical to Conjurer), which is actually Astral damage.

[Arcanist]
- A Disciple of Magic that makes use of magic along with mechanics.
- Their guild is currently located in Limsa Lominsa.
- Their magic skill is called "Arcanima."
- Their auto attack is called "Magic Missle", which uses "arcance" magic. Damage type varies with equipped item.
- They can use "Create Distaff" to create Arcane Distaffs and use "Animate Distaff" to animate them, placing them down and activating them. Distaffs are items imbued with power by the arcanist. They can be placed down as traps, arcanima fields, and more. There is a limit number of distaffs that can be placed down per party, and they have a set duration.
- Their actions "Create Distaff" and "Animate Distaff" are similar to "Refill" as Archer or normal attacks as classes. They cost no action points, MP, or TP.
- Their weapon is a combination of a staff and mechanics.
- Their weapon deals various element damage similar to other magic users. Their primary elements are Ice, Earth, and Water (identical to Thaumaturge), which is actually Umbral damage.

[Shepherd]
- A Disciple of the Land class.
- They use an action called "Herd."

Yes. if I was a betting man, I would bet we see Arcanist and Musketeer in one of the first few free version updates, at the least, since both of their guilds are in game and on the map.

I just hope Musketeer is a melee/range combo class as it appeared in the LL quest so far. Any sign of Musketeer having abilities geared towards a 2 handed axe?

Even though I'm not playing Archer or planning on it, that made me super happy. ^__^ Thanks for the post, great information, regardless of how it may change!

This reminds me of that 'planned expansions' list that was going around forever about World of Warcraft.

Not much assassin info yet. :)

The only thing I can say right now is their skill is called "Dark Arts."

Now keep in mind I'm just pulling this out of my ***, so there's no possible way to prove me wrong right now, but Musketeer is going to be a candy bar maker. I know because I once read looked through a book magazine about Japan naked Asian women posing with hotrods, and because I have a lvl 100 character on a different server.

And heres hoping shepherd is this game's equivalent to bst.

Well it's a Disciple of the Land, so... probably not.

I added a little bit more information on Animate Distaff and Create Distaff that I could find. That should be everything for now.

I also added the higher level elemental spells for Conjurer, because those tend to be a staple of magic in general. Remember those levels could be placeholders (level 80 for ancient magic II, for example), and anything can change.
