What would you think of the idea of creating advanced classes from the classes already in place?
For example, if a Gladiator equips, say, Pug's blind side, Lnc's collusion, and a dagger, it starts earning additional "thief" skill points and unlocks a whole new set of "thief" abilities that can only be used when the proper gear and abilities are equipped.
Choosing only rank 30+ abilities (or any significant minimum) to be eligible would further generate a challenge and a goal-oriented leveling of basic jobs. You would need to think ahead of the path you want to follow when you start playing the game, and the expression "leveling my subs" would take all its sense.
I could see very well a red mage type, a ninja type (there are already some "blink" types of abilities), smn, samurai, dark knight etc. with the abilities already in place.
There would have to be bonuses, instead of penalties, in equipping such specific cross class abilities, and opening a new set of potential abilities (or weapons) when you play an advanced class would be great.
What advanced classes would you see, with what combination of currently available abilities?
What additional advanced classes abilities would you see?
