As the stat differences between the races in FFXIV however are trivial at best and virtually non existent by level 60, all hypothetical RSE would be good for in FFXIV would be glamour
There is no actual gameplay reason for RSE in FFXIV
Well, the thing is, there is no actual gameplay reason for RSE in FFXIV, as in FFXI each player race had both statistical strengths and weaknesses (tarutaru had the highest INT and MP but lowest HP, elvaan had the highest MND and Strength but low INT, galka had the highest HP and def but lowest MP etc etc), and so the stats on RSE was specifically designed to compensate for those weaknesses (tarutaru RSE for instance had massive HP boosts), so it was the gear of choice for those who wanted to play 'unorthodox' characters (as in, Jobs that race was not really suited for stat wise, like a taru tank). Because humes had balanced stats (not excelling in anything but having no real weakness either), each piece of RSE had both stat boosts and stat reductions - equipping the whole set balanced out the reductions and gave only minimal boosts to compensate.
As the stat differences between the races in FFXIV however are trivial at best and virtually non existent by level 60, all hypothetical RSE would be good for in FFXIV would be glamour, and given it's just pallete swapped starting armour, a better option would be to make the existing starting gear dyeable.
So basically, RSE is one of those FFXI-peculiar things that due to FFXIV's design has no real need to be added here.
EDIT: Annnnd, I really should not skim read - I just realized the OP actually wants the appearence of FFXI's RSE to be added to FFXIV - which, as much as I liked my skimpy 'savage' gear, again it wouldn't work here, for one simple reason. FFXIV now has six races not five, and two races would not have any attire for one gender (male miqo'te and female roegadyn would miss out). As we're already seeing players complaining about gender-specific gear in the game, I really don't see FFXI's RSE being added.
Instead, I'd love to see more general FFXI gear designs added - Koenig's set (the wootz gear) and that Aht Uhrgan piece that I can't remember the name for showed this is indeed a possibility.
Final Fantasy XIV - Is Language Spoken Census Necessary ?
Many folks may not think that's a big deal, but it is. You have to hire people who have some degree of credibility to do the job of moderating and be fluent in multiple languages, where there is a minimum of English and/or Japanese and the language in question.
Final Fantasy XIV ARR: The logic behind Warrior and Dark Knight getting their stances at 30
When I leveled my Final Fantasy XIV Paladin about 2 years ago, I had 0 aggro issues. No class could pull off me in dungeons 30 to 40. (Nor before or after for that matter lol)
Final Fantasy XIV Remains a Game that FF Fans Need to Have on Their Radars
With the recent announcement of the upcoming Stormblood expansion slated for a summer 2017 release, I figured it’d be a good time to try to persuade a subgroup of Final Fantasy players to give this one a chance. More specifically, the group of fans who absolutely love Final Fantasy for its story, but dislike the idea of having to pay monthly fees just to continue playing an MMO.
When FFXIV Astrologians have been complaining about mana?
Why take away the shields when AST should be capable of pairing up with a WHM and you take out Diurnal's spellspeed bonus making Stoneskin even more obnoxious to use as an AST? We all know SE loves obscenely strong busters and the capability of giving yourself a little extra padding.
If we had something like Final Fantasy XIV Conquest system
Removing the penalty for switching wouldn't really do anything either, all that would do is make a mass exodus to the "winning" Grand Company all the more common and further skew matches...
Final Fantasy XIV Tanks,Trolls or bad?
He didn't use defiance which mean that myself (FFXIV ARR Summoner) and the Ninja were constantly ripping aggro from him within the first few seconds of a pull.
