    Just a repost of what I did for my FC:



    Warrior of light has descided he did not like Dragoon and has gone Monk!

    Link to Reddit updates on new expansion:

    Stormblood

    Early Summer of 2017 ( about the same as 3.0 so June ish)

    Ala Mhego

    2 new jobs it looks like. Not mentioned what they are, but Yoshida had a Scarlet Witch t shirt on and its all red. Also one of the 2 fighters in the trailer is all red and fighting with red abilities so a lot of people are thinking Red mage, but it is also fighting in melee and kind of dancing around, so there is a vocal group thinking Dancer.

    Inventory Expansion.

    Secondary skills system is being re-vamped and going from class based to role based (instead of PLD cross class skills, it will be tank cross class skills.)

    Each class will have its Skill system looked at and little used skills may be removed or changed.

    New Raids, Dungeons, Primals.. it was hinted that the raids may have different stories for normal and savage.

    4th new Housing zone, may be Ishguard, may be ALa Mhego, could be a new place all together.

    Will be able to fly in 4.0 but will need to find Ather currents in each zone still (might be easier than 3.0)

    New explorations zone Forbidden Land: Ureka (sonds Daidem like)

    PC requirements going up, 34 bit windows is not being removed, but they want you to upgrade to a 64 bit OS. Core Duo processor support going away.

    Play Station 3 will not be supported in 4.0 you will not be able to go into Ala Mhego on a PS3.

    Everything was really vague.. not a lot of details.

    3.5 will add a Kirin like mount for collecting all of the Primal Birds.

    3.5 is adding cross server chat and cross server party finder to help combat the small population servers. Yoshi said if the cross sever stuff does not fix the small server problems, they may merge some of the smaller servers after 3.5

    I so dreaded the day when the expansion was going to be announced, because I am still playing on PS3 sadly. I am hoping to get a PS4 for Christmas, but I honestly have no idea if that'll happen. So I'm not as excited for this as much as I want to be. I am hoping to still be able to play on PS3 even without the expansion, but I'm probably not going to be playing my main. Don't know yet.

    I heard there is going to be another upgrade campaign. How does that work exactly? I still have to get a PS4, but can get the game for it for free? I wasn't playing with the first campaign. And higher PC requirements? No idea if the PC my sister plays on will even be able to handle it then.

    They did mention a upgrade campaign would be done, but did not give a lot of details, which seems to be the theme today, I guess they want to use the other 2 fan fests for giving us details.

    I have the 64-bit OS but apparently I have the Core Duo processor that's going to be no longer supported. :/ I'm going to have to upgrade that somehow.

    Basically if they did it like last time, you just buy the ps4, download the client, and follow the instructions. You don't need to buy the game again but you also won't be able to play it on the ps3 unless you buy a second copy.

    That is of course if I can get a PS4 within the time of the campaign. Because it would be nice to save at least some money when I do upgrade.

    That really, really, really looked like a dancer/monk.

    It would be nice of SE to do another upgrade campaign, even though they're really under no obligation to do so. They would still make money from players needing to purchase the Stormblood expansion as well as the monthly subscriptions, and it would be a nice gesture.

    Wait, how in the world did that trailer lead people to Red Mage? I personally think they might either seriously change Monk or add Dancer as a class, albeit a more martial arts-aspected dancer.

    From what I understand they think it's Red Mage because of Yoshi P's shirt, which he's used in the past to hint at new jobs. I don't think it has to do with the video

    Yea the red mage has nothing to do with the trailer. the trailer was were people got the Dancer class idea. As @GeekMatt said the Red Mage comes from a T-shirt that Yoshi P wore on stage during the announcement and made a big deal about, it was the Scarlet Witch from Marvel Comics. Last fan festival he wore a Batman Dark knight T-shirt during the first fan festival, and Dark Knight was announced as a class at the next one.]

    This is the internet though and it does not take a lot to get reddit and the forums talking. My favorite one is that the in the trailer the Lady in red is Yda. The biggest point for it being her is that you see Papalino, but she is not with him, you never see them appart. The best point I have seen for it not being her is that you don't see the neck tattoos that Yda has, but the lady in red is wearing a gorget over her neck that could be covering it up.

    Looks good. As a Monk main I love the emphasis on Monk a lot. The female does seem to be like a Dancer in the way she has dressed but I think she's still a Monk as she seems uses the same skills an abilities at the WoL. Her outfit could just been the usual form of dress in Ala Mhigo. Unless, of course, they are both Dancers.

    I suppose there is nothing to say that both Dancer and Red Mage are possible new jobs as the last expansion added 3 to the game. Although, even he was wearing a Scarlet Witch t-shirt it could be hinting at a new job entirely. Maybe a Witch job that specialises in curses and hex powers?

    red mage is a done deal.
    but when i first saw the trailer i thought dancer immediately. then i read all of the monk hoopla and gave up a little.
    i dont understand red mage in 14. my red mage experience does not come from 11. i see red mage as a white/black mage.
    this can be done with cleric stance. but dancer would be fun.

    The thing is, with the current DPS/Tank/Healer setup, how would a Dancer be any different to a Monk?

    The only thing I could see is to give them a whip or something as striking with arms and legs would make it feel like a Monk. Possibly giving them some unique utility like the Astrologian Cards and allow them to do a random dance that gives the party a random short term buff or the enemy a short term debuff?

    Honestly, I think the trailer was just monks.

    Re: Dancer, I hope we'll see an actual support class with buffs, debuffs and cooperation with other classes.
