No, I wanted a new model.


So a totally revamped design of a blue cat-like thing with long ears, fluffy tail and a ruby on its head? Because nearly every single Carbuncle has been like that one right there.

I'm with you. Current (old) model is a fat, blue pikachu..I'd definitely like a 'sleeker' fox-like version of the little guy. .

Alas, I won't be rolling a smn for some time so I don't care much in the end :)

I don't get why RMT isn't simple to prevent. If they can so easily catch NDA breakers, isn't it much much easier to do a simple google or ebay search and find a TON of RMT sites to sue?

How much more different can Carbuncle look...? It looks just fine in FFXI. No need to make a new model when the old one looks just as well.


I don't want him to look super different, I was just hoping they would put some effort into making a new model for him, because I love Carbuncle.

Yoshi just mentioned the team is looking into a number of RMT-prevention methods, such as keeping new players from trading items. You're welcome!

So I know I said earlier that it would suck if SCH had a pet... but I was more or less thinking that they would recycle SMN pets. I think it's awesome that it gets its own dedicated pet, and the "stance" concept sounds interesting. Can't wait to try it!

Yeah. "A totally revamped design", which is what they've done with every other Final Fantasy title. This is the first one (besides X-2, XIII-2, etc., sequels) where they are using a crap load of models from a game which came out like 12 years ago.

Oh you know you want it. If Carbuncle came out as a blue lizard, you'd be ticked off. Just read the forum on DRG's having Omnislash. Be thankful you have some sense of familiarity.

Hey! If drg's can't have their pet dragons anymore, you aren't allowed your pet summons.

I disagree. I like baby Ifrit. I found the overly large summons of FFXI annoying in parties. They were so large and annoying. Call me weird. Also, with the ACTUAL summons in the game, it would really detract from that system to be able to summon a full sized ifrit.

well you didn't summon the actual primal/prime in FFXI, only an avatar or image of it. Just doesn't feel summoner'ish considering that all previous summoners got to summon either avatars/images or the real thing. Sure I would be fine if they scaled down the models, but that thing is just.. tiny and puny >_> or perhaps that's just me =(

I think a huge summon would be awesome as a limit break for SMN a la FFX aeon style.

Well, you're just mindlessly agreeing with everything and anything they do.

Complain that they're using a 12 year old graphic model in 2013? WHATD U WANT GARUDA?

Complain that the avatars look puny when they're supposed to be epic? THEY WUZ ANNOYING WHEN THEY WERE BIG

Anyway, like I said, I don't think that was Ifrit, but the egg version they were talking about. I'm gonna assume Ifrit will be big.

I just have a differing, positive, opinion

The Carbuncle in FFXI was my favorite summon in FFXI. I also loved Pup, and if they gave you some giant puppet, I would not have liked it.

They were! Maybe I was completely alone in the annoyance of having a giant-*** Fenrir walk in front of my screen and I'm cycling through targets or something, but it was annoyingly large.

Well, of course it was. Real Ifrit is Real Ifrit... from the Primal Battles. Like Three-Stories tall. By comparison, FFXI's summons were pokemon.

Call me weird for liking the cute cuddly Carbuncle and the huggable baby Ifrit, but I just like them. Hey, guess what? My Favorite champions in League of Legends are Teemo and Volibear, but not that manly volibear with the armor, I like my Volibears in a cute winter hat and my teemo's in a bunny suit.

Well Carby was a friggin lizard in FFT, but we'll let that one slide I suppose.

I'm not a fan of all of the copy pasta monsters either. What they did with funguars is awesome but then I see HD copies of Imps and get kind of disappointed. Now I don't think that they had to come up with entire new designs for classic monsters, however they could have at least put a new artistic spin on them. The treants look great and the Gobbues aren't bad either, even though they only made a few changes to them.

Also, am I the only one that felt that the voice acting in the intro video was kind of.. poor?

Nope, I'm with ya. That's why I'm really hoping they allow us to view CS in Japanese with subtitles. It's not as bad as some I've heard, but some of the voices... (Merlyweb I think is her name, the silver haired elvaan) were just flat out bad. Oh well, I'll still enjoy just having voice acting in the game.

I like the token system idea quite a bit. I know WOW and other MMOs have been using it for a while, but it is a very fair way to divvy out loot, especially with the cross-server duty finder. I think It will lend itself well to a game such as FFXIV where one character can be any job.

Oh.. and I'm fairly new to hardcore PC gaming so what was all the hubbabaloo over directx 9 vs 11? What exactly would the update mean for the game, or any game for that matter?


Also..Louiscool, your new Avatar pic confuses and disturbs me on several levels... It's awesome.
