I find that one of the more annoying things about the FFXIV class system is when switching between different classes. Even with full sets of macros it can take quite some time for the macro strings to play out.
Wouldn't it be easier if they created an entire menu option with saved preferences for each and every class? I created a rough concept in photoshop to illustrate See the mock image here. UPDATE: See RufuSwho's Post below for direct image.
Basically you would have each class you have started in a scrolling marquee. For each class you would be able to pre-set and save armor, abilities, traits, and macros. Anytime you got a new set of armor or new weapon simply go to the class change in the menu and save it to that class. Then when you want to switch classes you have a nice graphic UI to scroll through them.
Aside from functionality it would be an aesthetic improvement as well. Rather than your character disappearing and reappearing with new armor, an animation could play when you switch classes.
Does anyone else think this would be a solid improvement?
