This is from the main forums but I thought it would be fun to see what people here have to say:

"Scout, Caster, Pet. Which class would you want next?
Stemming from this translation by Reinheart, Yoshida asked which class would you want next?

A scout class (thief)
A new caster class (RangedDD+Debuff)
A pet class (Pet user+Debuff)
Other suggestion"

I'd like to see Summoner. There needs to be a pet class in this game bad. But thief would be nice if they brought back treasure hunter :)

A THF class that's useful... I really like the way Rogue is used in DDO, you can do things without one in the party, but they spot and disarm traps as well as spike damage.

Treasure hunter was cool and all in XI, but I never felt like anything much more than occasional hate control and general treasure *****.

A scout class (thief) :5 (25.0%)
A new caster class (RangedDD+Debuff):5 (25.0%)
A pet class (Pet user+Debuff) :10 (50.0%)
Total:20


We really need another mage.

I want them to release Fencer (Rapier) so I can have the Red Mage job.

If not then... Archanist probably.

Okay. This is a contentious issue, but I'll debate it as rationally and articulately as possible.

Rogue - Combonation of ninja and thief without the 4 second invisibility casts.
Beastmaster - Only this time with the ability to keep our pets and name them.
Summoner - Of course.
Samurai - I don't think anyone would object.
Alchemist or Engineer - it's time they brought in a more tactical job.
Dancer - I don't know, I liked that job.

I agree with Transmigration. Beastmaster/Summoner with some tweaks and Alchemist/Engineer would be really cool.

Since I haven't been able to play yet (in the process of building a PC that will run it), all I've been able to do is read up as much as possible. One question I have is what are the roles of the two mages at this point? At first I thought Conjurer must be WHM and THM must be BLM, but after reading more I'm not sure. Note- I realize this is continuously changing and the dev team steers the game through toward 2.0.

Sorry if this has been hashed out before, but I am trying to read only recent stuff written after the October announcement (and really as recent as possible due to the 1.20 patch). For instance, I went through and read Edy's THM guide but after talking to him via PM (I knew him pretty well in XI) he said the game has changed to the point where his guide is basically obsolete.

sooo tl;dr What roles do the existing mage jobs currently fill? Are they similar to the WHM and BLM in XI or are they more hybrid?

The reason I ask this here (in this thresd as opposed to starting a new one) is because it helps me get a better feel for people's for what classes are need when they refer to a mage job.

Thankies Smiley: nod

Conjurer can access the White Mage job; Thaumaturge can access the Black Mage job. In FFXIV, jobs are the somewhat-confusing extensions of classes. The classes themselves (i.e., Conjurer and Thaumaturge) are rather more "hybrid" in that they can both can do some amount of healing, buffing, and magic damage.

I too would like to see Blue Mage. It would fit really well with the whole Uldahn company storyline.

I want my Samurai butbI know it's not happening any time soon:( Especially since other classes have priority. My hope are they get done adding those soon (rogue class more mage etc) so they can get on with nin, sam etc. I hope to **** they don't tie those jobs to an expansion as that would mean many months after 2.0 release. I really want to get into this game but it won't happen for me ubtil I get my sam:/
