I'm expecting some changes to the battle system, improvements to responsiveness. Perhaps they'll finally add the ability for the game to remember your spells.
Side note here: I was playing DRG/BLU last night and noticed that when I changed my sub to /BLU, the game remembered my Blue Magic spells! It remembered which ones I had assigned and set them for me; I didn't have to **** around with them to set them up again.
FFXI can do this, so FFXIV should be able to, too. Change jobs, abilities automatically come up.
I don't expect to see jump for at least 4-6 months because even if they decide to add it, they will have to redesign maps to account for it. A Z-axis throws a monkey wrench into planning when your game is designed around only X and Y.
There is a Z-Axis...THere has to be to allow a 3D enviroment. you have hills/etc...so the Z-axis is there, but at the same time there may also be "holes" in the enviroment where if allowed to perform "uncontrolled" z-axis movement may cause you to fall through the terrain, or pass through holes in walls or objects. collision is the biggest problem there
