Alchemist + Conjurer = Chemist?

I like the idea of including the crafting classes into the equation, but I wonder about advanced jobs for the crafting and gathering classes?

Carpenter + Botonist = Lumberjack!

or something...


I would like to see a few crafting classes get advanced jobs. Something like Blacksmith and Alchemist producing Engineer. Magitek is in the game. Make it happen.
My first class in FFXI was THF, and creating another base class that leads to this would be nice as well.

I always thought that merging crafting with fighting classes would be awesome. I especially like the Engineer. I'd like to see some autocrossbows and bio blasters, if you know what I mean.

SE might have written themselves into a corner, basic party size of 4 people doesn't really allow for much expansion, They can't really just implement a support role without making it stupidly powerful, since it would have to effectively boost one DD to nearly the damage of 2. Without the ability to add Support as a role, 95% of existing FF classes would fall into the DD role


That's a really good point. As true as it is disappointing...

I thought musketeer was allready confirmed? bunch of people online seem to think so too. The next class will be in limsa so just take a look at the surroundings to make an educated guess. theif, pirate, muskateer all fit the theme. there's dancers all over ul'dah too so that could possibly work...if you look at what the game needs then i would say a healer/support class.

You might be on to something with this.

How crazy would it be to have crafting classes mixed in here with battle classes?

They would be able to craft or gather unique items? Interesting combat play?

What about a marauder + botanist for some sort of DPS/Druid type lumber jack?

Or lancer + fishing for some sort of Neptune water god like class a melee mage

This could get interesting.

Probably already said, but Musketeer already has a guild, it won't be an Archer spinoff.

Something that strikes me on here is that lots of people are missing 1 very important factor - How the armory system actually works.

under the current system you cannot combine 2 class to equal a new job with a NEW weapon, so while RDM looks like it fits perfectly GLA+CNJ or GLA+THM i dont think MAR+THM = dark knight wielding a great sword makes any sense.

Musketeer as a base class introduces firearms which can be specialised in to COR or maybe RNG ???

I guess what im trying to say is ANY job that needs a NEW weapon type needs a base class or it breaks the current system.

these are few examples of how i think it could work in the current system

berserker (great sword) --> dark knight using BSK/THM for example
musketeer (rifle) --> COR or RNG
Pirate ??? (knife not dagger) --> THF
? (katana) --> NIN
? (Great Katana) --> SAM

You have to keep the Armoury system in mind. It's really the bottleneck for making new jobs. It's one of the worst idea's in gaming history as far as i'm concerned in the amount it limits the system.

You cant just make a Marauder into a Dark Knight with a great sword. It doesnt happen. Marauder has Great Axes.
Which can only mean that a Dark Knight which develops from a Marauder has a Great Axe too.

We cant ever have a Samurai or a Ninja with Katanas unless we get a base-class that can also use Katana weapons.

Thief? Technically it could still belong to Gladiator since thieves use daggers and swords alike, sometimes with offhand shields. But that would then be their weapon restriction as well. They would also be stuck with a lot of Gladiator's native skills that they cannot get rid of.

Same for a lot of jobs that use unique weapons. Unless they get a new Base-Class that also uses that weapon and has unique abilities, your hopes of ever seeing the job are slim at best.

Pehaps this could work then:

CLASS: Ronin (uses katana or great katana)
JOBS: Samurai and Ninja

Actually, in 1.0 the MRD guild was the Musketeer's guild. Musketeer could easily be a combination of ARC and MRD. It almost has to come from ARC as a base though, since it's the only non-magic ranged class. It also fits that it'd be placed in LL again as well, since they'd be 'Corsair' like in their abilities based on what little we knew about Musketeer in 1.0.

They need to tweak the Duty Finder as is, and hybrids would be a perfect reason to do so, allowing for spots that may be able to do two roles. I've stated before, things such as guildhests don't really require a standard trinity setup.

It could be like WoW's LFD tool, where you're allowed to select multiple roles when entering the queue.

I wasn't saying it was impossible, I just think the other Archer job will be Ranger or Hunter with Musketeer being its own class. (It's my prediction)

I didn't totally disagree, just my prediction it would stem from ARC as the base class. Every one has opinions! XD Really, if we got down to it, there's no telling what else they'll pull out of the collective hat. I would have never though SMN would have come from Arcanist, and would have been its own base class, so /shrug, who knows.

So, I've been thinking a bit lately about how I believe SE has set a precedent for other job progressions in the future, based around how they designed the Arcanist class branching into the Summoner and Scholar jobs.

It seems to me that they are possibly establishing a pattern to introduce other jobs down the line, following this same path.

So, here are my predictions, and I'd love to hear what you guys think! (I've left Arcanist off, for obvious reasons)

Archer -> Bard and Ranger (or Musketeer/Corsair)
Conjurer -> White Mage and Geomancer
Gladiator -> Paladin and Red Mage
Lancer -> Dragoon and Samurai
Marauder -> Warrior and Dark Knight
Pugilist -> Monk and Ninja
Thaumaturge -> Black Mage and Time Mage

Obviously, these are suppositions and guesses... but also seem like they could hold a possibility of coming to fruition.

They're going to have to add Base classes like they did with ConjurerArcanist if they want to expand on what we currently already have.

That said, the world already contains Time Mages, Corsairs/Musketeers, Engineers, Seers/Oracles and if you ignore the shield, there's a Galka in outside the Royal Court in Ul'Dah wearing what can only be described as a Blue Mage attire (Empyrean from XI).

The options are all already there. I just figure we're going to have to get new base classes if you actually want to wear the weapons they normally have.

A samurai without a Great Katana for instance wouldnt be a samurai to me.
Gladiator already wears knives at times, but for something like Thief or so i'd imagine we'd get a diffirent subclass too.

*edit* sleepy...

Edited, Sep 10th 2013 8:08pm by KojiroSoma


When thinking of the new potential classes, you have to think about the weapons they really would use, and what they would really bring to the table.

Archer -> Bard and Ranger
Ranger could work, make them more attack orientated and maybe with a pet. (solve the beast tamer wants)

Conjurer -> White Mage and Geomancer
Geomancer, atleast in Tactics, weren't staff wielders.

Gladiator -> Paladin and Red Mage
Adding red mage would be a great addition to the GLD line, but i could see them adding dark night to this as well. Looking at all the past games, Dark night didnt rely on a 2 handed sword in them all. (It would be nice if they did though.) Neither of these classes are really Tanks though, which is what the GLD/PLD is. So I could also see neither of these occuring.

Blue mage could be a great fit here.

Lancer -> Dragoon and Samurai
..no. just no. a samurai (while trained in a polearm) needs to wield a katana, its iconic, you just need to.

Templar would be a nice add to this class though.

Marauder -> Warrior and Dark Knight
as with the GLD/PLD, MRD/WAR is a tank, so they would be taking away from the

Pugilist -> Monk and Ninja
personally i think adding Geomancer in here would be a better fit, but ninja is definitely a possibility.

Thaumaturge -> Black Mage and Time Mage
I want time mage so badly. I dont care where it goes, just give us one.

-----

"New" Classes:

Scout > Thief and Ninja
Weapon: Dual Daggers
Type: Tank or DPS
Thoughts: There isnt any reason this couldnt be a either a tank or a DPS, have it high in evade,parry and decent health or have it do high crit damage. Either way, the skillset would really determine which direction they took this with. Currently the only job to have dual weapons, is PUG. Since they already gave up daggers to GLD, this the only way i can see thief getting into the game.

Fencer > Red Mage/Mystic Knight/Spell Sword
Weapon: Thin Swords (+maybe shield)
Type: DPS
Thoughts: You know what they are, and the majority of people want one.

Musketeer > Pirate
Weapon: flintlock style Guns
Type: DPS
Thoughts: I want another ranged DoW, but since using a gun, their drawback would be high enmity generation, slower skill cooldown, but they also do huge spikes of dmg.

(something) > viking
Weapon: single handed axes, blunt weapons
Type:Tank
Thoughts: We need another option for a tank, maybe the viking can do warcries of some sort to gain the attention of enemies. it could also be more focused on debuffing the monsters. or instead of warcries, it could do hate generation over time on enemies, kind of like DoT.

(something) > Samurai
Weapon: Katana or great katana (only one)
Type: DPS / off tank
Thoughts: Fast attack speed, heavy armor. this would be really cool to setup to chain attacks. just one attack leading into another..*fades off*

Fighter > Dark Knight
Weapon: Great sword
Type: DPS
Thoughts: give the people what they want.

And finally, something with the Magitek. Enemies, get it. I want it. Maybe it could be a new Mage class? oooh yea!

Engineer > Magitek Knight
Weapon: Orb
Type: DPS
Thoughts: Magitek related, from the mounts, from FF6 (or ff3, whatever you want to call it)) I think this could potentially game breaking, so it would need to be something you REALLY had to work for. hmm ie master a few crafting classes along with crafting the starting gear for it..

-----

I dont think all of these should be implemented, im sure a lot of these would probably need to be balanced heavily. I am sure Yoshi-P could do it though. That guy is awesome.

Easy, I am noticing that many of the monsters that were there in FFXI that blue learned spells from are still in the game, and still use the same attacks. I will miss Bludgeon though (No card peoples) =(

Why are people so stuck on FFXI jobs and weapons?

Cecil was a dark knight that used a sword and board!

If you want a great sword how about a SOLDIER class?

Why cant Blue Mages and Red Mages branch from Gladiator? Or Theif?

Why cant Gunner be a support job branching from Musketeer, adding shot debuffs amd possibly healing shots?

I dont see the Armory System as broken at all. Theres a ton of different play styles they could explore with classes and lots of combinations of jobs to put together to meet them. This is a great thing, since players in an MMO generally like to be able to customize their experience which was a one of FFXI's strengths.

My guesses:

Archer -> Ranger (bow) (dd + a dd limit break)
Conjurer -> Geomancer (wand/bell) (healer)
Gladiator -> Red Mage (sword + shield) (heals/debuffs)
Viking -> bst / berserker (dual 1h axes) (dd for both)
Lancer -> templar (tank)
Shinobi -> nin/samurai (katana) (both tanks)
Marauder -> Dark Knight (tank)
Pugilist -> Puppetmaster (DD)
Thaumaturge -> Time Mage (DD/healer)
Musketeer -> corsair / pirate (buff/dd for corsair just dd for pirate)
Blade dancer -> theif/dancer (dd for theif / healer for dancer)


tanks - 4 more
healers - 4 more
dd - 7 more

Trying to keep it balanced

I like the idea of warcries that taunt and debuff the mobs. Kind of makes a tank also help with the support too. It has always been annoying to me as a career tank that all we do is tank, I would really like out abilities to be able to support the group me. Maybe some different types of warcires based on the mobs you are fighting, one that also silences, one that slows, one that paralyzes, etc.

I don't care if the job flings **** at the mobs like a monkey to gain agro, as long as they give me a job with duel one handed axes I am happy :)

Gladiator - Mystic Knight/Rune Fencer
Whatever you want to call it, this class has been leaning more towards the Magic Defense side of tanking in recent FF entries (FFXI, Bravely Default) so their skills would probably mesh well with the Gladiator's skills.

Pugilist - Dancer
The support side of the Pugilist class. As someone has said before, they could use their stances to perform different dances for either buffing, debuffing, or healing their allies (whichever route they want to go in).

Marauder - Berserker
The offensive Marauder. Berserkers will focus moreso on boosting their attacks to deal massive damage in short bursts.

Lancer - Templar
Templars would focus on inflicting debuffs by using combos to cause a wide variety of status effects on foes.

Archer - Ranger
DPS Archer.

Conjurer - Geomancer
There aren't really too many classes Conjurer could branch out to except Geomancer and Elementalist of which the latter basically acts like a CNJ. They could focus on using the land energies for attacks and they should also get staves that look like bells.

Thaumaturge - Time Mage
Haste, Slow, Gravity, Float, Countdown, etc. Yeah, Time Mage has a LOT of potential and would be more of a support type THM.

New Classes
Musketeer - Corsair and Chemist
Corsairs seem like pretty much a shoe-in for the Musketeer class considering where the guild is and what they are. Chemist would add another healing class that's greatly needed.

Scout - Thief and Ninja
As an above poster said, Dual Daggers that turn into Dual Katana for the Thief and Ninja job. Thieves would focus on positional DPS like Pugilists, with more emphasis on support/debilitating skills and Ninja could be more of a DD with Ninjutsu.

Fencer - Red Mage
Red Mage would be a class that needs to balance using Physical and Magical attacks to make the most of them.

Ronin - Samurai and Swordmaster
Samurai would have an emphasis on long, complex combos for massive damage while Swordmaster would be akin to the Bravely Default and Tactics Ogre (as well as Dunban from Xenoblade) class and be more of an evasion/parry tank.

Shaman - Druid
The 4 Heroes of Lights crown could return in this game and could play more like THM in 1.0 in that they'll be a healing class that drains life from themselves and others to heal their allies.

Am I the only one that doesn't want new jobs just for the sake of having new jobs? I don't want another DD where you push 1-2-3-1-2-3-1-2-3 and call it different because I'm using a scythe as opposed to a lance or two swords as opposed to two fist. I think we should absolutely have new jobs but only if the new jobs play differently or have something new to them that enhances game play. I liked the idea of a puppetmaster being pugilist+goldsmith but at the same time I don't really want to be MNK light like most of the other games. I think at 30, 40, 50 pup should maybe gain another puppet. And not just another puppet to use while you hit stuff but another puppet to keep out at one time. I think if at 50 pup could keep out and manage 3 separate puppets, that would be new, it would be interesting, and it would be something that we don't have in the game at this time. Obviously balancing the output of four characters (or 3 as concentrating on puppet abilities and party happenings should take up all of your time) as opposed to one would be an issue but I think if pup was removed out of the melee dps and more into a varying, complex puppet controller (puppet MASTER?) it would definitely be a unique job that would add to the game. Someone said berserker as a tank that uses debuffs to keep hate as opposed to damage related actions. That's new and interesting. A dancer in their support role achieved through using tp. Something like that. You guys are throwing out new jobs along new trees but you don't even describe something about that job to put it into a particular role. I think this is because you assume everyone to know what abilities it would have and how it would play just by mentioning what job it is. If you mention a job and don't say what would make it special or unique, then maybe it's not a good idea.

Archer -> Bard and Ranger
Conjurer -> White Mage and Geomancer
Gladiator -> Paladin and Thief
Lancer -> Dragoon and Templar
Marauder -> Warrior and Dark Knight
Pugilist -> Monk and Puppetmaster
Thaumaturge -> Black Mage and Time Mage

New Class -> Ninja and Samurai
New Class -> Red Mage and Rune Knight
Musketeer -> Corsair and ???

In reply to Figster:

It's not that I wan new jobs for the sake of new jobs, it's more that I want new jobs that offer different roles or play styles for the same class. As we see with scholar it can go the healer or DD route. Lancets could go full DD dragoon or help heal and haste party with Templar. That's what I want to see. Different play styles for the same class.

This might not mean much to us with all 50s, but to a new player, especially down the road with overwhelming content and lvl cap raises, it will help a lot to have different branches and options within one class.

Did no one notice the buccaneers or whatever you wanna call iut in coral tower in limsa? or that thycred weilds a one handed dagger with SHIN PADS?!? to me Ninja is going to be a huge option, and also in a cutscene where the Judges are from whatever that land is, the red one weilds a huge GUNBLADE KATANA, SE is defintely giving us clues to what they have planned, im as excited as everyone else in this forum about the possibilities. Other things i'm hoping for is that the correlations we find in game are going to be true later, like at a falls in gridania, i talked to an NPC who was a SAGE which to me almost confirms SE knowss whats popping out next, but hopefully we aren't all waiting too long, especially you 1.0ers :c

I like this. I believe if you want new jobs you are going to have to make new classes first. If you release a job that require marauder main and your marauder is already capped than so is whatever the new job. I would assume that new jobs would come at the same time as an increase level cap but still that may mean it would be capped again in 5/10 levels. Seems silly.

I think that would be a **** of a lot more convenient and I personally might prefer it if it worked that way but I don't know how that would be as far as long term game play.

They could intoduce katanas to make a new samurai type class, would be DMG dealer focusing on skill potency increased attacks how as a it branches of into jobs can be divers
Introduce Knives for anew rogue class since daggers are taken by GLD, so we can get thief and ninja as a JOB

And seriously Beastmaster I just don't care how!!! (Rant)
