A ton of new Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn information has been coming out this week at E3, and it just keeps on coming. Here is the new video showing off the new class and job: Arcanist, and Scholar and Summoner.
Square Enix also streamed a new Letter From The Producers live from E3, and I have a summary of it for you guys:
-Between the end of phase four and early access there will be only between one and three days of downtime.
-With housing there will be several permission settings to allow entrance to other people. The Free Company chest will also have its own access permission system.
-At the beginning only free companies will be able to purchase houses, then, if everything goes well that functionality will will be expanded to single players.
-There will be different versions of dungeon tokens that will allow players to purchase different kind of items, in the case they won’t get the drop directly.
-The team still didn’t have the perfect idea to implement a card-based minigame.
-Between zones and dungeons there will be about 40 at launch, with the ability to expand to 80 through patches.
-There will be both instanced primal battles in which a light party or a full party will take on a single primal that will have different modes. There will also be F.A.T.E. primal battles, for instance Odin or Behemoth, in which everyone gets together and fights together. They will also have different phases.
-Skirmish-type battles will come back, but this time they will feature famous Final Fantasy bosses.
-In Phase 3 of the beta a lot of effort has been put into creating interesting and challenging quest battles, including the main scenario quests. Don’t forget your antidotes! Don’t sell them!
-Chocobo bardings will be craftable, alongside custom parts for Magitek armors as well.
-The team is thinking about implementing a mentor system within free companies.
-A system to combat RMT is in the planning phase.
-The relic quest hasn’t changed that much, but it’s going to be a lot easier than in 1.0. It’ll still be challenging but there won’t be any more Hamlet defense to do.
