“Ultimate Fantasy XIV boss says extra authentic jobs not from Ultimate Fantasy historical past are deliberate”

“At this level, I’m pondering we now have no alternative however to give you model new jobs that haven’t appeared within the FF sequence earlier than”

Ultimate Fantasy XIV jobs have developed fairly a bit for the reason that authentic launch, because the group rigorously balances an ever-increasing sequence of mechanics and ideas.

Talking on the We Are Vana’Diel Sq. Enix celebration website, FFXIV producer Naoki “Yoshi P” Yoshida spoke about jobs, and the way it’s turning into tougher and tougher to attract from the supply materials. He notes:

“Job names are particularly robust. (laughs wryly) In spite of everything, there’s no level if a job is just like its namesake in identify solely; its gameplay expertise must match their pre-established design too. At this level, I’m pondering we now have no alternative however to give you model new jobs that haven’t appeared within the FF sequence earlier than. From a system perspective, if the variety of jobs is mounted and well-balanced, there’s no want so as to add extra, and including new jobs would clearly trigger a stir. However however, we all the time want so as to add extra jobs to maintain offering new gameplay experiences.”

It looks like a sensible concept to proceed to create distinctive jobs that won’t solely increase the legacy of XIV itself (and can most likely seem in future crossovers or video games as “that job that originated in FFXIV): however additionally they will really feel much less stress to reside as much as an present basis (which will or could not mesh with XIV) in consequence. After all, there may be nonetheless an enormous traditional properly of Ultimate Fantasy to drag from in terms of Ultimate Fantasy XIV jobs, together with a couple of I whipped up right here:

  • Time Mage
  • Necromancer
  • Geomancer
  • Calculator (I’d like to see this)
  • Beastmaster

There are extra! I nearly put “Gambler” on that checklist, however one thing tells me {that a} job based mostly closely round RNG (randomness) would piss lots of MMO gamers off. Naturally, there are different routes you can go for to get the thematic really feel of the job throughout. An Onion Knight as an “additional” Blue Mage-esque story job may very well be a enjoyable train, too.

In any case, I see what Yoshi P is saying when it comes to reaching a vital mass of jobs. The group has already packed the sport with so many alternative aesthetics that it’s going to get more and more more durable to maintain innovating. Up to now, they’ve carried out a reasonably first rate job!
