I agree with this.
Not sure where this came from, but I don't think this class should be in the game just for the sake of Corsair and whatever GNR is.
GLD > PLD or . . .
As cool as Dark Knight would be to put here for the sake of the good / evil dichotomy, I think it would make more sense to put the classic Knight here. It makes more sense due to the Gladiator's more tank-like feel. Gladiators use swords and shields just like we would expect a Knight to. Not only that, but the equipment-breaking abilities would be a cool addition to the game.
Here is where I think Dark Knight should go. Marauders give off a more brutal vibe which would match Dark Knight just fine.
PUG > MNK or . . . .
I'm not entirely sure what should be put here, but I don't think Thief is it.
Not sure about this one either. Not many jobs in the history of FF iconically use lances besides Dragoon.
Here, I think a Blue Mage would fit nicely, or Sage, etc.. Chemist would also be cool but I don't think it would make much sense to come from the Conjurer class.
I think a Red Mage would fit nicely here.
As for Thief and Ninja, they should come from a new knife-wielding class that is yet unnamed. Rogue sounds good perhaps.
And then, once we have all the abilities from all the classes, we can unlock the Onion Knight. Throw in the Mime for good measure. Edited, Jun 15th 2013 1:23pm by Godmaster
