    Info from EU Fanfest (Frankfurt 2017)

    I know a lot of info will end up in the Stormblood thread, this is just a useful place to gather the schedule and stream stuff together as well as a record of what was announced at this one rather than the others. Live Letter from the Producer stuff may include 3.55 and 3.5 part II info.

    Keynote highlights
    • Samurai confirmed as second new job. Only two jobs for this expansion and both are DPS. SAM armour grouped with MNK. Main weapon Katana. IAI and other Far Eastern techniques. Heavy melee DPS. Art of Sen. Three forces Setsu, Getsu and Ka (Snow, Moon and flower). Like RDM, will start at level 50. Quest will start in Eorzea
    • First we battle Imperials/Ala Mhigo then head further East to Othard (Far East continent)
    • New gear/crafted items
    • New city - Kurogane. Far Eastern port town on isolationist Island chain of Hingashi. Only place which welcomes/trades with other nations
    • Othard field areas mentioned. The Ruby Sea, exclusive, rife with Pirate activity, connected to Kurogane and one of the first new areas we’ll encounter
    • New beast tribe: the Kojin. Turtle/tortoise like. Found in and around the Ruby Sea. Underwater settlements. Collectors of items which house powerful Kami.
    • New Primal: Lord of Revel - Susano. ‘Ruler of the Ruby Sea’
    • Mutiple new dungeons, one was channelling Arrapago Ghost ship feels
    • Yanxia: second city to liberate will be found here. Controlled by Garlean Empire.
    • Azim Steppe: plains area. Absolutely stunning. Au Ri reside here
    • Dev footage showed some areas where there were rice etc
    • 4th Residential area: Shirogane. Will be released some time after Stormblood release. Moving will be possible
    • Housing furnishing capacity will be doubled for all sizes
    • Theme tune will have usual Susan Calloway

    Well the game doesn't really cater well to the idea of a support only class so I doubt we'll see that in the games future so it's split between healer, ranged dps, melee dps, healer and tank. The only way a support only class would be able to be viable is if it is worth dropping an entire dps slot that it benefits everyone else strong enough to make up for it possibly just sitting there not contributing any dps or very minimal dps .. talking lower than a whm that throws out the odd aero outside of CS in a 8min encounter.

    If we are being honest, Content That Matters already requires a support slot.

    I have a tear bucket ready for people when they announce it's a tank and then dry it to collect the crystallized salt. I'll use that salt on the new recipes I'm going to have to level my culinarian on to get to level 70.
    For real though I don't care either way what the class becomes so long as it's unique and well thought out.

    I guess if you are so homogenized that you slam healers in that slot. When I speak support I mean as if the class has zero or little damage output, so think of it like BRD or COR from XI. It can do something but you're better off almost not even wasting your time.

    If they unveiled 3 I will break out the party hats and fancy candles and slap a bow tie on my cat because they sure had me convinced.

    On a serious note though, as a tank main I would be thrilled if SAM was a tank. However, as stated so eloquently above, a unique well thought out class should take precedence over all.

    Really hoping for 3 jobs though!

    Fuck that. SAM DPS. My money is on that since DRK and SAM were two jobs he wanted in from the start, but chose DRK to be the tank.
