Final Fantasy XIV Shows Off New Stormblood Details, Red Mage Job Confirmed

During the opening keynote for Final Fantasy XIV’s Fan Festival in Tokyo today, the game’s director and producer Naoki Yoshida shared lots of new information was about the upcoming expansion, Stormblood.

 

First off, Red Mage, a long-asked for job since the game’s launch, was confirmed as being one of the new jobs available when Stormblood releases. Red Mage will be a hybrid melee and ranged magic DPS, and will use a rapier as a primary weapon, as well as a magicked crystal medium. The job will have the ability to chain magic, and its playstyle is achieved via “high-speed positioning.” Red Mages have the capability of dealing massive damage by chaining multiple spells and then following up with melee attacks.

 

Stormblood will also introduce the ability to swim and dive in certain areas. Upon entering an accessible body of water, you character will automatically switch to swim mode. In swim mode, your default walking speed turns into a breaststroke animation, while using sprint will cause your character to crawl. No combat will be available while swimming, and there will be no loading times when switching to swim mode.

A new beast tribe will be introduced with the release of Stormblood. Called the Ananta, this serpent-like race inhabits the mountains near Ala Mhigo and excel in spell- and gemcraft.

 

Additionally, a new primal was announced named Lakshmi, the Lady of Bliss.

 

The expansion’s 24-person alliance raid was revealed, with a name of “Return to Ivalice.”

 

Celebrated composer Nobuo Uematsu was also confirmed to be coming back to compose the main theme for Stormblood.

 

The keynote ended with a tentative release date for the expansion of June 20th, 2017. Preorders will become available on January 24th, 2017.

 

Final Fantasy XIV is available for PC, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4.

As someone who loves working with FFXIV's crafting system

I imagine many other crafters probably do this as well. If you can sell a 10,000 ffxiv gil item you most likely won't bother crafting and selling a 2,000 ffxiv gil item.

Yoshi has stated that Crafted gear will never again be BIS for Combat and I agree, but it doesn't mean they won't make it 2nd BIS, and I think that's what they'll be going for come 3.2

Nael van Darnus was built using a male Elezen skeleton in FFXIV 1.0

For what it's worth, a chunk of us made it to Fan Festival and Rocl flat out asked people when he got the chance. If I remember correctly, Koji Fox suggested that Yoshida field the question and Yoshida stated, "Man! MAN! Always man!"

FFXIV Questions of Othard and Geography

Of course FFXIV is still young, but the reason why we haven't yet seen a full clear official world map of Hydaelyn (and the same reason Vana'diel never had a full world map in FFXI either), probably has something to do with how new areas are added into the game

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.
