Boo no one on one fights in Colloseum.
ALso since you get treaasure maps i would assume there are treasure chests but could you stumble upon these treasures id you dont have a map (from simply just exploring)?
"-In six months, add-on tools will be ready"
Are they talking expansions or something else?
Player made tools like DPS meter.
"-Completing job and AF quests solo: with enough skill it can be done. For AF it can be done solo by traveling the world. "
So basically it CAN be done solo if youre good, otherwise youll need help.. now THATS the kinda stuff I like to hear as opposed to "it can be done solo period... skilled or not no help is required"
It's nice to have some solo challenges. It's easier to program and prepare challenging fights meant just for one class or job because of balancing.
"-Sending /tell in instanced raids: not available to avoid players to be mean (talking trash about party members in /tell I guess), and there are plans to expand the Duty Finder. At that time, /tell may be available in instanced raids."
So they dont let you send tells to prevent trash talking but when Duty Finder is expanded (hopefully with a your server only option) then youll be able to send tells? Because expanding the Duty Finder will some how erase the nee to trash talk? ookay
He's basically saying he's limiting distractions while on Duty, and that once duty finder is expanded it will be reconsidered.
"-As for the primals being different than 1.x, since Ifrit was different in the beta, the primals will be similar to 1.x with some extra changes. Take the battlefield layout into consideration."
Since Ifrit was different in the beta than he was in 1.x theyre gonna make the primals similar to 1.x? Huh? That makes no sense. Shouldnt it be more like "Since Ifrit was different in the beta we'll make teh rest different too"?
You're reading this wrong. Essentially Ifrit is similar to it's 1.xx version but differs slightly due to the fight mechanics of ARR, expect similar differences in Garuda.
"-Crystal Tower is 24-man content. Yoshi says it is too hard so they're making it so you can use Duty Finder and join up with others. 2.1 patch it will be available, making adjustments right now. 3-4 months maybe. "
Its too hard so theyre making it available for Duty Finder? Huh? Umm wouldnt hard content be even harder if youre doing it with a bunch of randoms?
My unreasonable hatred for the super-hardcore crowd smiles at this, but to be fair what they are saying is that it's too hard for Duty Finder, and they want to ease it up a bit so it's possible to succeed. It may still be very hard, but they don't want it to be impossible to achieve with a PUG.
"-Fire resistant gear/swimsuits"
What would we need this for? I thought there was no elemental weaknesses in this game?
"Fire Resistant Gear." Is a joke name for skimpy swimsuit outfits.
"-Smartphone app and for iPad"
Wish that app was on PS Vita too
Make the recommendation, I wouldn't mind this either.
"-Outside of credit card and crysta (Yoshi shows a few cards) these are sold in convenience stores and other game shops called Game Time. Gives you 30 days or 60 days. Lots of designs for the cards. Available in every region. "
Soo did they just pretty much confirm game cards (i.e ppl wont NEED credit/debit cards to play)?
"About other classes branching to two jobs:"
I hope they mean NEW jobs I mean I Pugilist becoming anything other than a Monk would make
You mean new Classes
. And no, You can fully expect that Puglist will have a job other than Monk to turn into. There are other possibilities within the scope of Final Fantasy to turn it into. The most simple idea of these is Puppetmaster, which was also a HtH class in FFXI. Edited, Aug 8th 2013 11:05am by Hyrist
