So i'm hopeing that with the more inventory slots were going to get it comes with a quest to unlock it. It also seems with the new COMPANIES being introduced we'll get multiplayer quests. Not sure what they mean by this. Hopefully the Hamlet defence battles will be a raid type like what they had in FFXI in the Wings of Goddes expansion.


Quote from SE:

•The addition of notorious monsters (NMs)

•The addition of new battle content

•The addition of notorious monster-related battle content

•The addition of hamlet defense battles
•The addition of item exchange quests

Establishment of In-Game Communities

The forthcoming November and December version updates will introduce what are known as "companies," a special type of linkshell with more group-oriented progression and goals.

Once estbalished, companies will be able to work towards acquiring their own communal assets, such as buildings that can serve as headquarters, or ships that can be used to access multiplayer content. The system will provide concrete benefits to players who align themselves with a company, as well as motivate already established companies to seek out new recruits. In essence, the focus will be on providing new, innovative content for all players to enjoy. The FINAL FANTASY XIV Lodestone will also offer a number of online services covering both companies and linkshells.

All of the additions and changes mentioned above are currently in the final stages of development, and we are optimistic that they will be implemented in the version updates of November, December, and early 2011. Beyond those listed here, there are still numerous other features being planned. More information on these will be released in the future as details become available.

What I think would be a nice feature to go along with this is allow LS crafters to build said buildings, ships etc. It could provide an alternative style of leveling that's both more interesting, engaging and works toward multiplayer goals

Where are these Hamlets they talk about? Or where do you suppose they will put them?

They're the small towns out in the field like the Silver and Gold Bazaars outside of Ul'Dah

That would make sence In one of those towns they have a Blacksmith guild but its not opened up yet. It would be nice if they get those opened up. I remember in FFXI when they implamented something like this it was so hard. The mobs were insanely tough. It was called Besieged or something like that.

These are my thoughts exactly. I'm so hoping it's more than just the LS pooling enough money to purchase an airship. I would really like to see the LS having to actually synth and repair this baby. I think it would promote a huge goal oriented task, promote ls members taking up crafts, and create a sense of pride in the ship.

This is a great idea, i hope they made the huge map with nothing in it for a reason....

for companies to build stuff on the map,

for botanist for plant stuff (like how they have farming games on facebook)

for fishers to raise fish in a pond

for miners.... what do miners do? lol

but yah, giving players to ability to shape up landscape will be really fun idea; i don't know how they are gonna balance that, or make that happen, but that's not my job :P

I'm not playing grammar **** here, but i'm really curious. Is it a canadian thing maybe? They spell color as colour. Is it just one of the new commonly misspelled words?

I see people spelling Defense as Defence a lot lately. Is it just me?

I do hope they use quests to unlock new content, just as long as they don't do it like the gobbie bag quests in FFXI.

It's not misspelled. It's a dialect.

Never been anywhere in Europe or read proper English literature?


"Colour" and "defence" would be "proper English" as compared to "color" and "defense" being "American english".

Like i said, i'm not saying this in a demeaning fashion. I know some english speaking cultures have different spellings for some words. That's why i am curious. So, is it a culture/dialect thing, and if so, where from?

Imagine if they incorparate the Hamlet stuff with companies. Companies defend the hamlets and launch attacks much like the WotG expansion in XI and gain a currency that can be spent on company stuff. Special items for multiplayer, or items for their airship or mats to help buil airship or expand HQ.

Take this on-board SE 'cause that'd be win win win!

Also don't make us just battle in Hamlet defence. Perhaps allow crafters to help rebuild the hamlets after they've been attacked or bolster defences and use defencive equipment like mounted weapons etc. Imagine defending a hamlet where crafters have spent the day creating cannons on the walls for people to man or barricades to bottleneck the advancing enemies.

I imagine that the result of losing HD would be like besieged though. Loss of NPC's.

I think companies in November is a typo on their part. It's listed as Early 2011 content everywhere else.

Being part of the commonwealth, we Canadians are taught British-english, but being your northern neighbors, we pick up a lot of american english from TV and such.

So for that exact reason, I have unable to tell if it's spelled colour or color, gray or grey, defense or defence, honour or honor, valour or valor, humour or humor, and so on each and every time I look at those words :P

The fact I'm french might have something to do with the confusion too, as words like gas are spelled gaz. Argh!

I think I read "fetch quests" somewhere, I'm guessing those are your typical NPC quests. I hope Hamlet defense is instanced dungeons. As much as I disliked WoW I did enjoy dungeons and they throw you into one as soon as level 5 I think. It'd be cool if we can set the difficulty too like with leves so we can do them in parties or solo and imo the xp shouldn't be too different for both ends but the reward for everyone involved should be increased (maybe give away something like runes? something you collect (a lot of) and exchange for certain rewards, I think that'd be good incentive for party cooperation?).

Strictly speaking and off-topic, those are ORIGINAL English, while American English IS the dialect.
Unless that place is heavily American-influenced, most country outside America, including the Ex-British Empire which is 1/4 of the whole world, use British English spelling.



On-topic:

I really hope that there would be more quest,
currently, the main-line and job quest progress too slow, while levequests are even less than skin-depth.

Strictly speaking, spelling conventions aren't part of a dialect. And, if you want to get technical, American English (the dialect, not the spelling conventions) is "truer" to historical English than that spoken in England and some of the other colonies. The language brought by the colonists went into what might broadly be considered "transplant shock" and changed little relative to the still-evolving language back in England. So, for example, North Americans still pronounce the "r" at the end of a syllable, as the English did hundreds of years ago but no longer do. That was a change that happened after all but the last waves of English settlers left Europe.

American spelling conventions are an oddity caused by prominent Americans actually sitting down and changing a bunch of the spellings (also the pronunciation of the letter z, which still throws me off after years of living here...). As a result, the US has a unique set of spellings that don't show up anywhere else. I'm always surprised when Americans don't recognise (ooh, there's one right there) the other spellings online, since so much of the internet isn't using US conventions.

America also doesn't comply with newer, world wide building codes in their engineering practice. I think the just wanna stand out. I know the Canadian and American Engineering societies get together every once in a while and talk about the states changing (for example) from the english unit system to the more widely used SI system and America always says no. I wonder why? btw, what this has to do with spelling, I don't know but I found it interesting that they stay "unique" with certain things. Whatever it is it must be working since they're still the strongest country in the world.
