I don't have a fence!!!
But back to topic.
I hope there will be more jobs for each class. Maybe not right away but in the future.
Also class combinations to unlock specific jobs would be a nice thing.
Get em all! ^^
About the jobs rank = class rank...I'm not sure if I like this or not.
It's true that the way from 1-50 takes a while but I like ranking up different classes.
Leveling up in XI (pre FoV+stuff) was a task of another scale compared to XIV anyways.
I would be fine if, let's say, you get the quest to unlock a job, for example Gladiator and Paladin, at R30.
So you do the quest with a R30 Gladiator and unlock Paladin which would also be R30 and only have 1-2 new abilities.
If you did the quest as R50 GLA your PLD would still only be R30.
Then you continue from that point on and get your PLD skills and abilities and get your AF.
That way, if you wanted to be a full time PLD, you wouldn't have to "grind" GLA to R30 and then PLD from R1-R50. You'd just start as GLA and switch to PLD at R30 to get the last 20 ranks on it.
Or maybe they turn the "physical" rank into class rank and class rank into job rank.
For example you'd have a R50 GLA and unlock a R1 PLD with the same stats and action slots as GLA.
Then you rank up PLD and get new abilities and spells instead of stats.
I definately don't want to rank GLA to R50 and then just get a R50 PLD for free. No matter if I had to get all the abilities and skills with it.
A number of plans made at the beginning of the year will soon be ripe for release. Among these are the shiny new job system (a proper system, mind you, not just renamed classes), an in-game achievement system related to Lodestone character histories, and new modes of transport to address the mobility issue.
I'd be disappointed if this system would just be a new job per class with nothing to do but quest for a few skills. Edited, May 30th 2011 6:04pm by RidingBean
