I don't think this is how it will go, but..

I think it would be interesting if the Scholar stone could be used for EITHER Conj or Thaum and that choice would define which way the Scholar leans. For instance, you'd get the base spells of either the healer or nuker class, and then the Scholar specific spells would enhance whichever role you chose to equip the soul stone on. So you could be a Scholar with Stone/Aero/Heals/etc + Scholar specific spells, or you could be a scholar with Fire/Thunder/etc + Scholar specific spells.

I can't see them attaching it to Arcanist, it just seems too wonky, my money is still on a new class altogether.

If they do come from Arcanist how do you think the weapons will work? Will SMN and SCH use the same books? I don't know if when you change back from job to class that you use the same weapon or not, I didn't play 1.0.

Maybe it's SMN that throw away the books and SCH takes them instead. What if SMN ended up using summoning stones or something like how material contained them in VII.

That's kind of how the Rune-Keeper in lotro plays. Only instead of just equipping a stone that decides, you decide by the first spell you cast. Then you basically keep building an affinity one way or the other with each subsequent cast until you max out.

If the Scholar does come from ACN I can just see them making the line "Requirement: ACN SMN SCH" on any book. You equip the book and become an Arcanist, then equip either job stone and the book is legitimate, assuming you want the stats on it. Alternately, some books might say "Requirement: ACN SMN" while others say "Requirement: ACN SCH" But I don't see Scholar being a pet class, and I don't see SE saying 'yeah, here's a pet class, but equip this stone and lose that fundamental aspect of the class.'

Rune-Keeper sounds interesting, never got a chance to play lotro though. Does it 'reset' out of combat?

It resets any time you use a spell of the opposite type, or any time you exit combat. It's actually a fairly intuitive system.

That sounds incredibly cool, I could see it working nicely for the dual aspects of a Scholar too. You start casting healing spells and you become a stronger and stronger healer, but the second you cast a nuke, you immediately lose any healer buff you had.

In a related question, jobs are still going to be locked once you enter a dungeon right? I could see the Scholar being a go-to job for instances where maybe the first boss will be healing intensive, but the second boss will have a bunch of adds that need to be dealt with quickly. A flex character in a system where you have to decide the group makeup at the start.

I agree that it would be an excellent way to make scholar viable as more than just another healer class, or a DD class. Although I think I'd rather have it be one tree of healing and 1 tree of support/debuff type stuff. Since it's a class, it doesn't really need great solo potential, and the game could definitely use a good debuffing and buffing class to go alongside healing.

I'm seeing Arcanist (or) Scholar utilizing all those lost spells from 1.0 that were taken out (albeit a little more balanced)

Dia, Banish, Scourge, Sacrifice, Bio, Poison, Shock Spikes, Stygian Spikes, Resurrect, Slow, etc...

There were plenty of spells that they have programmed in. Well, enough to give it to a new job if they wanted to. And that's not counting Carbuncle's [possible] new abilities.

In FFIII, Scholar pretty much just had scan and books with different elemental alignments. In the rerelease for the DS, they also gave them the ability to do double damage with elemental items (Fire Bomb, etc.)

It doesn't have a particularly strong history, so there's a lot they could do with it. From the standpoint of a creative director, it's a great way to have your work stand out. When people are comparing the classes from various FF titles a hundred years from now, you'll still have a legacy as the guy who differentiated scholar (of course, assuming that FF doesn't go belly up as a franchise).

Yeah, I don't remember THF being overly popular when I played back before Abyssea came out. The ones that had been around from the start were definitely the richest people I knew of. I'm currently watching the Lodestone forums explode over this topic of SCH being the 9th job. Holding out for Samurai to be released some time down the line.

Do folks want Thief and would like to see Yoshi put a different spin on the FFXIV: ARR version... or do folks just want a copy/paste of FFXI's Thief?
That goes for any job SE is looking to add.

BTW, FFXIV: ARR is looking pretty darn good to me! Smiley: smile

I want a modified thf from XI. I'd love to have a highly evasive, position based fighter that has a bunch of stealth abilities. I'd really like to see it be more of a combo melee/ranged fighter that maybe has different stances for different combat styles or something.

So I was really surprised when scholar was confirmed. But I really don't think that it will branch out from ACN. In the live letter when someone asked about any healers being released, didn't he say that to expect a new class and job that can heal? Also ACN and SMN will be using grimoires correct?? There are tons of names for books that a scholar could use AKA: atlas, codex, compendium, octavo, textbook, tome, treatise, vade mecum.. to name a few that sound really scholarly (thank you thesaurus) Also I don't think I like the idea of one class and two jobs. I also remember reading that they would rather make new weapons for new classes/jobs... I really think SCH will be getting its own class like all the other jobs they just didn't release any info about it. I can't wait to see what they have planned for E3.

There was some debate on the Lodestone forums pre-SCH confirmation that SCH's base class was MSK. Reasoning being that there was already a Musketeer's guild in Limsa, and it was simply *impossible* for SCH to branch from ACN. Therefore, according to this logic, MSK -> SCH.

Yeah, it was ridiculous. I can't believe so many people tried to deny that the character on the box art was SCH when she has the exact same AF as the XI iteration. If it's confirmed that SCH does indeed branch from ACN, more people over there are going to lose it. Some of them can't seem to wrap their minds around this concept. There's that, and the complaint of having levels "handed to us" because job level = class level. Smiley: disappointed

Logic from some circles also dictated that Arcanist and Summoner use Grimoires (fancy name for books) so Scholar can't use them. I don't see Scholar coming from MSK at all, I see Corsair from it, sure. Yoshi has already said he wants to introduce Jobs without needing to introduce classes, they're only doing Class > Jobs because that's the current system but they're not held by it.

But also, they will only do it if it makes complete and total sense, like Pld and Drk. They wouldn't force a connection between 2 jobs just to not make a new class.

That'd be really stupid considering SCH in XI uses grimoires.

I still suspect it's Arcanist > Scholar and Something Else > Summoner.

I'd like to see the quote of Yoshi saying that. I remember in our last letter he stated:

Q24: Will we be able to equip different types of weapons in the future?

A24: Hmmm. While I don’t want to say no, I personally think it’s better to just add new classes/jobs instead.

So while I wouldn't mind if two similar jobs get branched, I like where his head is currently. I'd be very nice for many people if ARC > RNG/BRD was an option, since they'll still be using bows, and the stats and ARC abilities don't conflict with RNG. The GLA > DRK is very contrary. Not because of the weapon, because FFT DRKs did use swords also. The stats and abilities are too defensive in nature.

While I'd rather an entire new class for SCH, I can follow the logic behind branching if they're both using books. The stats don't or shouldn't differ too greatly.

E3 is almost here! Hopefully it will clear up much of the convoluted speculation.

I like this idea. I would think that DRK would be a natural branch of MDR. Where WAR is the more disciplined fighter, DRK would be pure berserker fury. GLA could split between PLD and a hoplite or myrmidon type class, that still uses a shield but is more aggressive than PLD.

I was always fascinated by the SCH job in FFXI, choosing an elvaan when I was young and stupid pretty much kept the fascination at a distance. I still liked the idea of it though. I am curious what this SCH will turn out to be. I am torn, as it would be cool if they kept the "stance" idea from XI, allowing it to be a healer or DD by switching stances, but it would also be kind of lame if they simply took the XI sch and put it into XIV.

I'm a little worried about the "stance" idea. SCH in FFXI did have an identity crisis. It was a wonderful SJ for WHM. Whenever I tried to main the job, I didn't know if I felt more comfortable in BLM burns or as a healer in a traditional party. I ended up soloing pets like I did with BLM and joined burns during the rare times I got an invite.

I believe something else!

I think the idea is to eventually have more than one job spring from a class, and the Arcanist class will be the first to feature this. Summoner and Scholar jobs will both come from Arcanist.

SCH is a weird choice, unless they have a plan on weaving it into the story line. I'm interested in seeing how it is implemented. Will it be the buff/debuff specialist?

I find myself agreeing with this line of thinking; Yoshi P seems to know what he is about. I think that sch is going to be an unexpected and pleasant surprise for those of us (myself included) whose first thoughts were "uggh, wtf...?!".

No, you're absolutely right, it is a strange choice. It's going to seem even stranger if it turns out that scholar isn't the second healing class the game desperately needs.

I assumed they picked it to give magical characters another job, while I would have preferred blue mage, as I mentioned in another thread, we will have to wait till E3 I suppose to find out what they are thinking with Scholar.

From the Letter from the Producer IV:

Quote:
Q: Will arcanists be able to use their grimoires to summon familiars other than Carbuncle? Can you tell us new information on the primal and relic weapons for arcanists and summoners?
A: As an arcanist, you’ll be focused on Carby. Now, some may assume that we won’t expand the arcanist summons in the future, but that’s not my intention. This is just something to start with. Arcanists can summon different types of Carbuncles. Basically for arcanists, play will revolve around using the different types of Carbuncles. When you unlock the summoner job, your summons will harness the power of the primals.


I think it's pretty safe to say Arcanist goes to Summoner, not musketeer to summoner. It's more than reasonable. That doesn't mean Scholar won't come from Arcanist. If it does it would be the first class in the game to branch off an existing class/job pairing. I'm inclined to think that there is another class they haven't announced yet and that will be where Scholar comes from.

Q: Will arcanists be able to use their grimoires to summon familiars other than Carbuncle? Can you tell us new information on the primal and relic weapons for arcanists and summoners?
