    OK here's a quick summery of day 2 (sept 21)

    FFXIII Lightning fate will be available 1 week before XIII launch (11/14)
    - They showed a video, looks like she helps you in the FATEs.

    Coil of Bahamut:

    Coil of Bahamut will be updating continuously
    *Showed video of levels 1-5*

    Once newer levels of Coils of Bahamut come out, the previous levels will give bonus' and buffs to you if you die a lot (like story mode, etc..). This was said to help people that don't play as often as extremists, so everyone can access content. Current max level will still be ultra hard.

    Future Patches:

    2.1 - will have Crystal tower
    2.2 - Coil of bahamut
    2.3 - more crystal tower expansions

    Crystal Tower:

    • Crystal Tower will have nostalgic bosses from FF3
    • Will be 24 man (3 separate groups)
    • Will have content where you are mostly split up, but must come together at parts to complete a task and continue on.
    • Will have a dungeon first, in order to actually reach the tower dungeon (similar to FF3)
    • 90-120 minutes long
    • Looking into item level restrictions (currently around Titan HM level items)
    • Gear drops will be similar to FF3 (gave the FUMA as an example, and said that googling FF3 crystal tower will give you a good idea)
    • Monster's abilities will also be similar to FF3 (google them)

    * They showed a bunch of pictures of the CT. Looked really cool!*


    *showed a video of ul'dah area*

    • Can customize roofs,walls,fences,windows,wall paper etc...
    • He wouldn't answer the question on price (will leave that until last minute)
    • Can grow gysahl greens in a garden and raise chocobos
    • Basement workshops (in FC housing)
    • All DoH,DoL,DoW,DoM will be involved in housing items. example was culinarian making food to put on a table, or someone making books to go on the shelves)


    *showed video of the arena*

    • 4 on 4
    • Levels 30/40/50
    • PvP exclusive abilities
    • Special PvP gear shown (golden PLD lion, Deer looking SMN, Swan looking WHM, black DRG with red waist cape thing)
    • Duty finder vs. duty finder. Pre-made vs. pre-made
    • PvP skills to include more ways to handle debuffs (ie: sleep)
    • 1 on 1 specific locations


    Patch 2.1 expected within this year
    More server expansions + server transfers mid - October.

    Only servers who haven't won bomb earrings so far are ixion and excalibur

    My guess would be that they would come in an expansion, rather then a patch.

    About pricing: Yoshi-P admitted that gil/money in-game is currently too scarce (deflated economy?), and he wants to correct that first. So by the time housing comes out, we'll have more gil in our purses and won't have such a sticker shock.

    A good summary. Thanks!

    Ugh, I want to swim in all that! xD
    I will be getting a home there, I love the beach!
    And more social activities! Yes thank you!
    Chocobo breeding, the crafting classes needed in the house.
    Sounds much fun!

    Please don't start down the FFXI path where any time ANYTHING was added to the game, people went ape s**t over possible new jobs. We ended up with like, what, 23 jobs and less than half of them were raid viable?

    Let's stick with balancing the ones we have now and save brand new class/jobs for expansion pack selling points, rather than expecting them everytime Yoshi opens his mouth.

    Dragon, Legwen, Cynessae and 2 others like this.

    I never understood why people want so many classes and jobs right away. I think there are already plenty, and all of them are rather fun.

    It would add a bunch of variety between players who prefer a different gaming style.

    The only way I would like to see new classes/jobs would be in an expansion.. for it would make sense. Although, I would love to see a zwei hander and dual blade.

    So far it looks like we have variety though. Two jobs of each style, not including Bard though. Poor Bard.
    Though yeah I like it when new jobs/classes come in expansions instead of patches.

    Tarutaru Shantotto ftw! Time for that inter-dimensional crossover. Vana'Diel vs. Eorzea.

    Although I saw Mamool Ja in Limnsa Liminsa...

    I wouldn't care. As long as the job is fun.
    I'm pretty sure Musketeer is the next one.

    Mamool Ja are in the game, in higher level zones. Before you worry about that being a spoiler, they are just random mobs. Spoiler free. ;)
