Will we get new weapons with the new job system?Follow

#1 May 22 2011 at 7:41 PM Rating: Decent
Mainly I am wondering if we will finally get the ability to DW, though I would like to see Great Swords and firearms finally being added also. What do you guys think?

If they keep the current method of changing classes then I would imagine all new jobs will get their own new weapon. But, since they are 'jobs' and not 'classes' they may have a different system in mind. I'm hoping I get to use a scythe again!

One would assume that with the new job system there shall be new classes too. Axe, Great Sword, Rifle and Scythe are four noticeable absences from the game and we already know of the Musketeers and Shepherd's Guilds (in LL and Coerthas respectively) so those building blocks are there.

Must have missed that part while I was reading through it. Still leaves me unsure about DW since it is not a weapon type itself.

They will either implement new weapon types for the new jobs or, since they might not be classes in themselves, once you have successfully met some conditions/finished quests you get an option:

Equipped "Great Axe" in main hand.
Do you wish to become:
Marauder
Dark Knight

Something like that, I can see either option being in place.

Possibly great sword, since dark knight wielding scythes are pretty exclusive to XI.

You know, when I think about it, I would like a class that uses katars also. They seem really underused in MMO's, DCUO being the only one I can think of off the top of my head that uses them.

Correct me if i'm wrong, but dont botanists use scythes?
And we still dont know if "dark knight" is what theyre going with. Mabye something more evil, like reaver, from dragon age.
And there were katars in ffxi too, indra's.

They were hand-to-hand weapons in FFXI, and I expect they will make a return as a pugilist weapon in XIV.

Yeah, but my problem with them in FFXI was that you were still just using them like a fist weapon, rather then a slashing weapon. Of course I am picky about weapon animations also, like how I think each race should have its own style, like they did in FFXI.

Bummer, you are right. Guess the scythe drk is probably out. GS would be acceptable for me also, I really just like the concept of the melee caster who can wear heavy armor.

It's my hope that the job system will not be tied to weapons the way that the current armory system is. This will allow players to focus on their customizable classes for solo play (which are going to undergo some changes, albeit), and also focus on jobs for party play.

That way, you could have a Dark Knight/Maruader or /Lancer for damage dealing, or a Dark Knight/Gladiator to emergency tank, or ****, why not, a Dark Knight/Thaumaturge or /Conjurer for spellcasting: all you have to do is change weapons.

Heh, yeah I suppose I could just throw spells from my THM on my MRD and I would essentially just be a gaxe drk. I actually might try out absorb-acc because even with food my accuracy is less than desirable.

Hopefully they release more info on it soon. I am curious to see which ones we will have, and which will not be around. Personally, I don't see us having Dragoon returning, since I don't see how it would play any differently then the lancer currently

You could have a dragon pet again, but I don't think we'll get any pet classes/jobs in the near future.
I miss my Bst...and Brd...and Dnc...

Jobs are supposed to be specialized "classes" that focus on certain aspects and have special skills/spells/abilities.
My guess is we'll get some of the standard jobs used in FFXI and other FF games:

White Mage (CON)
Black Mage (THM)
Red Mage (CON+THM)
Paladin/Mystic Knight (GLA+CON)
Dark Knight (GLA+MRD)
Sephirot (EPIC)
Samurai (LNC)
Warrior (MRD)
Thief (PUG)
Monk (PUG)

or something like that...
