I read somewhere a while back, in the beta before the game released, that armor and weapons labeled classes that werent in the game? Also recently i read that things from the old dev team wasnt implemented but was finished and those were the new races, im thinking male miqo'te and both female reogadyn and highlander (coulda been only as npc). I know it doesnt mean either or the new classes and races will be added but still would be nice to see more classes and more variety in players through those classes. The classes seem summed up and mashed together to me espicailly with DoM classes, would be nice to see dual weilding or great swords, pistols(kinda thought there would be pistols with pirates here), summoning among other things.
(clear things up with the lore) about the races i know in ffxi there were no female galka they were like pheonixes and exploded at random in old age and were babies again but the male miqo'tes were kept in there homelands and such if i remember right it was cus the males were rare right? but anyways in xiv they mention female reogadyn in the game so they are there now (dont hate the female reogadyn they dont have to be ugly) and as for male miqo'te iunno havent seen anything but to me i think xiv is a leaped forword time from xi in the same world though so maybe they repopulated the miqo'tes and males are just as out there a females and as for the highlanders is there really a reason they dont have females in those highlands?
anyways in short both more DoW and DoM classes would add more variety and races i think is just a ppl pleasing thing but honestly it wont hurt anyones gameplay unless u spazm and die at the sight of new sexes but thats what warnings are for :D
