When reading Matsuis post "Battle Reform Blueprint" the part about classes and specialized jobs got me very excited.
We might see the return of all the names we know and love.
EDIT: THE FOLLOWING IS ALL JUST SPECULATION AND NOTHING OF IT IS OFFICIAL INFO!
It's great that the jobs will be avaliable through quests. Unlocking them by ranking up the required classes and doing the quests will be a nice new goal to achive.
What kind of job will be possible with each class or combination of classes?
Maybe they'll even use crafting/gathering classes?
White Mage: Conjurer
Black Mage: Conjurer
Time Mage: Thaumaturge
Necromancer: Thaumaturge + Arcanist
Red Mage: Gladiator + Conjurer + Thaumaturge
Blue Mage: Pugilist + Shepherd
Ninja: Pugilist + Alchemist
Dark Knight: Marauder + Thaumaturge
Paladin: Gladiator + Conjurer
Samurai: Gladiator + Lancer
Summoner: Conjurer + Arcanist
Canonneer: Musketeer + Alchemist
Beastmaster: Marauder + Shepherd
Dancer: Pugilist + Arcanist
Bard: Gladiator + Arcanist
Geomancer: Conjurer + Miner
Soldier: Gladiator + Thaumaturge
Fencer: Gladiator + Pugilist
There are so many possibilities. It's great ^^
