As we all know, there was a 70/30 split for new content in patches 1.17 and 1.17a. For the life of me, I can't figure out what's remaining.

Anyone have tabs on anything Yoshi-P mentioned that still is floating around?

I was thinking maybe the battle system changes, but they're always mentioned along with some "major version update" to take place this spring.

EDIT: Maybe [dev 1033] Which is the introduction of Companies? Whereas in .17 we got [dev 1003] which was sidequests relating to companies.

EDIT2: Just double-checked, [dev 1033] is changes to class names, I meant to say [dev 1034]

Something more for Companies


random fixes that are nice but largely irrelevant in the big picture.
We really want to compete against World of Warcraft and for example the new Star Wars MMO.

I thought it was more changes for the classes, be it names or skills
FFXI:Sylph - Perrin 75 Hume THF; Retired (At least from my use any way)
EVE Online:ScraperX; Retired
WAR:IronClaw- Peryn SW;SkullThrone- Grymloc BO; Retired

Probably the addition of quests that relate to the new dungeon/raid environment they talked about before. Yoshida said we would get some content that would foreshadow this content in patch 1.17 but since it got split 70/30 it might have been delayed for patch 1.17a. I too am hoping for more company stuff but I'm going to remain distant on that prospect for now. I'm beginning to suspect we won't see companies really going full steam till June/July when that supposed 'date' they mentioned earlier this year comes about. That's when I am guessing the 'invasion' will occur.

im not entirely sure, it could be anything but i know more bug fixes are in it.
im just glad the development team is at least somewhat back on track after oprahs douche bursted while visiting in japan weeks ago. i cant wait for more updates like this one as i really do now see this game shaping up nicely.
i just pray for every update at least 50 people start playing again on each server XD

My honest guess is some bug fixes, maybe something else like the erank, maybe some more quests, and jumping. I think we'll get jump because when yoshi made his detailed post about jumping he also talked about collision detection in the same post, so I'm thinking since he fixed detection he'll implement jumping.
