    Date of SoA Revealed: 3/27/13

    Final Fantasy XI’s fifth expansion, which was recently revealed this past summer at Vana Fest 2012, now has a release date.

    Titled Seekers of Adoulin, this new add-on will see a new job class in the form of the Geomancer. New systems including Pioneering and Exploration will also introduce new elements to the 10 year old MMORPG.

    Starting from March 27, 2013, the expansion will be available for PS2, PC, and Xbox 360 in Japan for ¥3980. Services for Seekers of Adoulin will start a day later on the 28th. An official announcement has yet to be made by Square Enix, but all should be revealed soon.

    Late March? Sounds too early given their usual development progress. Can't wait for yet another expansion with empty zones and jackshit to do out of the gate.

    That timeline is probably based on having a full proper dev team, not two dev's and a monkey...which would mean 9 months is WAY ahead of schedule.

    Was there any news on if the level cap will get raised?

    I was basically wondering because if the level is staying static, then getting gear now (I just came back last week since 2 years ago) might still be beneficial for use later as it can be treated as situational/sidegrade, but if the cap will be lifted again to make all 99 gear next to obsolete (barring the relics which will probably continue with the magian system).

    I'm pretty sure the monkey is the second in command to Matsui :D


    I'm pretty sure lvl cap is staying 99 till the game dies.

    I remember Kaisha saying he took a break before. He may be pessimistic, but the reality of the situation is unknown till SOA, so quite pointless to insinuate he's obsessed beyond reason.

    I have in the past, and am currently on break because there is nothing of interest for me to do. An expansion at least gives me some story content and locations to explore.

    cap is staying 99. from how i understand it matsui wants to start making gear like dc online does it. basically once you hit lvl cap you get better and better gear from harder content to keep getting stronger. as you get better gear from content you can do the next harder content. it has its plus and minuses to it. plus side is theres always stronger gear to aim for. downside is your old shit gets obsoleted as you get better and better gear from harder endgame.

    I hope this means we'll be getting some details on story/lore/Adoulin gameplay this week then. I mean honestly we know basically nothing about the expansion. We have a general idea of what roles Rune Fencer and Geomancer will fill and that's pretty much it.

    2 to 2 and half months before release is when we tend to start seeing tons of expansion info normally. i'd expected some info to start popping up by the next 2-3 weeks or so

    Plus this update brought a lot of Adoulin related quests and information to take part in. They also defined what exactly geomancy involves too.
