    Yes, tanks that can't tank are usually referred to as DPS.

    It doesn't have to be "Dark Knight without tanking abilities". It could be a melee support job similar to Bards and Machinists or even have unique stuff to it like the cards on Astros. I'm just hoping these new jobs are more unique than the last 3 we got.

    I was just pointing out the stupidity of comparing something to something else by saying "so it's x without the x."

    Part of the revamp could also be allowing current jobs to have a sub-role aka MNK can spec to have DNC like abilities. Personally, that isn't quite simple-stupid so it'd probably never happen.

    To me it sounded like they're doing the opposite of specialization. Like right now PLD gets fucked on cross-class abilities but the change will allow them to take DPS actions like WAR and DRK can.

    Well, since 32 bit is going to be trouble, I had better save up for a new video card. I have been having crashes with DX11 even tho I have 64 bit op system. It hasn't been a priority since I had to get new glasses, but I'll ramp up getting a 900 series card soon as I can.

    GTX1060 is best unless you find a really good deal on a secondhand 900 series gpu. Very affordable pricepoint and on par with/better than the 970.

    Yoshi did confirm "the formula won't change" back at what...E3? Gamescom? So aside the people who find that to be not a problem, he was pretty clear that nothing significant will ever happen with XIV "for the near future."
    That's not quite what he said. He said that there wouldn't be long-term progression or deadly open-world areas on the level of FFXI. He did say that there would be more alliance content, deadly areas with difficult trash mobs (Deep Dungeon and Exploratory Missions), and new content categories.

    I know that many of you don't put too much weight on what they say, and even when these things are implemented you might not like them, but they did talk about some interesting changes and additions:
    • Dungeons: "A lot of new battle and dungeon concepts to increase the excitement." In a previous interview I remember them talking about certain Deep Dungeon mechanics (randomization, etc.) as something they wanted to learn from.
    • Raids: "One of the ideas: during the even patches we'll get difficult content, but what about something even more difficult in the odd patches?"
    • Eureka: dedicated endgame area featuring an "expanded form of exploration" and Notorious Monsters (some on 72-hour timers), used for relic weapon questline
    • Ozma Savage: "If we were to make an Ozma battle Savage version we might go back to this idea..." Video shown of new Ozma shape mechanic. "If we're really going to make a Savage version, this has gotta go in it. The difficulty level will be pretty high. I don't want you complaining 'Oh, it's too hard!'" Given we've also seen Proto-Ultima as a 24-man trial, I think we might see this as a new content category.
    We also know that...
    • A new Deep Dungeon will be in 4.0
    • Exploratory Missions will be revamped in 3.5 and they've wanted to continue these as well in 4.0. They pointed out that Eureka is something separate from Exploratory Missions.
    I know many here want a different type of progression entirely, so this probably won't satisfy you, but it's still new stuff.

    For a second there i didnt recognize Derplander with those abs looking like they were chiseled from pure marble.

    Is that woman supposed to be Yda? Considering all the other Scions have had some costume changes and this is sorta Yda's story.

    Using Eureka for the relic questline is a great idea given what was there in FFIII but I hope we won't be forced to camp 72h respawns again. That's the kind of thing I don't want back from XI and I can already see how badly it'd end up in here (see Hunts).
    So basically with Stormblood we should have all the content we've seen introduced in HW+ 24 man "savage" bosses, Eureka and new raids in the odd patches?

    This has always been my secret wish for the game. Give every class a SCH/SMN-like second job stone instead of adding new class/jobs entirely. Making the HW batch completely class-less killed that hope, though. They seem committed to ditching the cross-class system as much as possible.

    Probably not Yda, no neck tatoo.

    Hmm the blonde chick in the trailer doesn't have the Sharlayan neck tattoo. Might not be Yda.

    Or that but I guess the neckpiece could be hiding it. I'm still pretty sure it's her.

    Also these fanfest questions are killing me.

    Wow there was only 1-2 questions worth asking out of this entire segment. What the fuck is wrong with people?
