I'm also waiting for Ninja to make an appearance! NIN was my first job to 75 in FFXI and has always remained my favourite.

Lancer kinda ruined it for me. Just don't like it as much as I loved DRG in FFXI.

There is a Ninja class. It's currently hacking you to pieces while the servers are down... when they come back on-line you'll never even know it was there...

They'll add ninjas. We know they want to. No Japanese swords in FFXIV at all? That's just begging for ninjas.

The class "Assassin" is already in the dats, which sounds like a Theif/Ninja hybrid to me. Fencer is included as well.

If you can hang on until the first expansion (whenever that might be...) you will probably end up really liking at least one of the new options.

I just hope they don't have an annoying shadow ability again. It was pretty frustrating that /nin was the most common subjob of choice for almost every scenario outside of EXP parties. It kind of took the whole "customization" aspect out of the game.

That and it was **** expensive. But I would like a THF job.

Oh wait i forget people here like to defend this game with FFXI <.<


"How come we dont have an AH?" THERE WAS NO AH IN FFXI AT RELEASE! :@ :@ :@

"Can we have a jump ability?" THERE WAS NO JUMP IN FFXI!!! GRRR!!!!

"Omg why did they add 15-20 wow quest in a patch, when there is no Content?" ALL THERE WAS IN FFXI WHERE FETCH QUESTS STOP QQ GO PLAY WOW!!! GRRRRR!!!

"Why is this game so bad?" OH MAI GAWD!! YOU DINT PLAY FFXI? FFXI SUCKED AT RELEASE! NOW UNISTALL AND GO PLAY RIFT!!! :@ :@ :@

"Hmm so why if you liked how FFXI turned out, you guys threw tanaka under a buss and praise yoshi-p ? Dint tanaka made FFXI what it is today?" OMFG! STFU! YOSHI IS GOD!! HE TALKS TO US AND AND HE ERM... HE MAKES POLLS!! TANAK NEVER MADE POLLS HE JUST MADE THE GAME WE LOVE OUT OF LUCK! BUT YOSHI! OMG YOSHI POSTS!!!

Now take it to heart W.K


Um, HE was comparing it to other FF titles, not me. If you couldn't pick up on through simple reading comprehension of his post, his sig shows in XI he was 75 thf, 75 nin.
It's not trolling when you respond to the exact question with an exact comparison.
However it IS trolling when you flame someone out of context of the post, or just cuz you don't agree.
Nice job!

I'm looking forward to Japan getting back on its feet and can't wait to see what is in store over the next 2 months, 6 months, year, 2 years, 5 years etc...

I thought ninja was pretty cool in FFXI, and wouldn't mind seeing something like it in XIV. I dropped FFXIV for a couple months after the CE release, and picked it up again a few days ago... right before the server shutdown. I've a renewed passion for the game, and almost regret taking that time off.

I started this character at the CE launch, and played for about 2 months. Haven't touched it since.

Lack of class variety is one of the biggest flaws, for sure. Thankfully the new team is aware.

Basement insults are so 2005. Also, different timezones are different.

But yes, Ostia's points are fairly redundant in that classes are COMPLETELY different in context to basic functionality in the game. The fact that you're saying that comparing it to FFXI's timeline of implementation is not okay, then comparing it to FFXI that the job was even in the game is stupid at the best of times.
