    What do you actually expect from the new expansion.

    Although many of us want a lot of things from the new expansion, I think the net gain would be more like this:

    A new city with more 4000gil or level 20 +1 enhancing magic sword, reward quests with no real plots.

    Another escort quest, too bad you can only do one a week.

    One or two new areas for end game exp.

    A lot more level capped BCs, possibly longer story but most likely a lot easier and rewarding than CoP.

    A lot more low level content, most of it will be garbage though.

    Several new HNM (non-alliance aka Xotol)

    NPC related advancement.

    A new collection of JA's via merit. Most will be worthless, a few will be useful. I doubt any will be world changing (think divine veil trait, nice but didn't change the game).

    Of the three new jobs one will be broken, one will be a copy, and the last will be a broken copy.

    Wyrm class hnm (though probably demons or w/e SE's flavor of the month is). I'm thinking 72 hour pops again. One will have nice items the others won't be worth fighting except for BK points.

    More of your favorite monsters in startling new colours. (A green crawler with a healling JA).

    Fun new status effects, all erase only, (JA block or something fun like that).

    Speculation of a new thematic area like sea, sky, and ground (thinking a sewer, hole in the ground, or mountain).

    Expansion of limbus.

    Expansion of dynamis.

    More BCNM/ENM.

    More situational side-grade armor (Have 11 fishing yet?)


    I do think SE will try to put a good deal of effort into early to mid game content. I think we will all win in some respect with this and I hope it's fun.

    Difference: This topic is what to realistically expect. Other topic is what people WANT. Hence the topic title difference:

    Expansion wishlist

    What to expect from the new expansion

    That would be a very rosey view of SE you have there, lol.

    I think Epigram got it pretty much, but missing:

    -None of this actually available on release, but doled out over the course of 2 years.

    Not really.

    The other thread is about what you want to see.

    This is about what will most likely happen.

    This thread is an antithesis of the other.

    It's the same differance.
    That doesn't even make sense.

    back On topic:

    - I expect Blue mage to suck in xp pt and to suck solo and suck all around and become the new DRG of the support class.

    Something has to replace DRG now that they aren't as gimpy as Dhalsim before his teleport anymore.

    agreed


    -Blue mage 2 hour will prolly be "Learn Ability" or some shit like that. every two hours they can learn an ability but only if it is one that is pre approved to be one that can be learned.

    -New job "Bruce Lee/Chuck Norris" (depending on what face/size you go with) owns all jobs at everything. 6 Lee/Norris take out any HNM (not really but i left like putting it)

    -More NPC content for sure. I can say without a doubt this is going to occur

    -More shit with fishing system

    -New spells/ja within merit system....though they are prolly gonna fuck people over who already have job specific merits. You are going to end up needing all your job specific merits to get new abilties.

    -Also agree that most new ja are going to be crap

    i thought that was BST and RNG.

    ---

    i expect 3 new jobs, only one of which i will have any interest in playing.

    another city like Safehold with Nomad Moogles, no storage.

    more ENM type things in new areas.

    I expect that even if this new expansion does everything including blowjobs people will still complain about something. (probably about it dragging tooth)

    I expect zones with lvl caps and no subjobs and with all True Sight IT mobs. Rare/ex keys dropped by True Sight IT mobs to open doors surrounded by True Sight IT mobs which may or may not break when you try to open them. And after finally getting through the door, you find it's only one of 16 possible spawn locations for what you are looking for which means you get to do it all again.

    And after all of this, you find what you are looking for..... the nomad moogle in the first expansion town. But he is only open from 8:00-21:00.

    Lets take it to the admins. 4/5 Admins agree, this thread is different. The 5th admin just had his access revoked.

    CoP would take about 5 changes to turn it from crap to good. Its nothing short of laziness/having a staff of challenged people thats stopping them. Give CoP Wyrms actual loot, improve the droprate in Sea, give Jailers money drops as well, make J.Lo and AV killable w/o 100 people, and change the timer on 3kings or make their gear available through equally hard BCs.

    I'm really hoping that the new magic/JAs through merits are pimp, and I really really hope that the announced jobs are good too.

    Level capped shit has got to go. Carrying gear for lv 30/40/50/60 and endgame instances is stupid and Square showed little thought to the system. The game already had inventory problems, no need to make it worse.

    Over 15+ new areas, and of course, 50-70% of them will be tiny BC areas.
