I am starting to wonder if they will infact raise the cap to 99...as the next cap will more than likely be 90, since the raise increments have been at 5 levels the past two updates.
If they do infact raise the cap to 99 would they do it next year or the year after? would they release new content along with this cap increase? it seems to me that with every level cap increase in the past they have added some sort of expansion or battle area in the update, so if they were to go another 10 levels next year i wonder if they will add some new content, possibly expanding into the unexplored area's of vana'diel

They are not going to do 14 levels at once. 14 is their unlucky number.

To me, seems they will go up to 99 because without it, we wouldn't hit the top teir on some spells. Thunder V, Thunderja, etc unless they are going to put ALL those spells from 86-90.

Also, they could go back and make older content have more meaning for 91-99 or they could just have older/new gear keep getting upgraded through trials.

They can not program anything new for FFXI after December so clearly it will be 90. Why? December is the end of the year so duh.

It is just like sailing a boat there is an edge of the Earth and you can not sail past it or you will fall into hell.

Where does it say in that timeline "This is the final update ever, Level Cap increase III is the final increase of all time."?

End of the year, end of the Earth. Have you never been on a boat before?

They can make Blizz V Thunder V Thunderja and Blizzaja apart of the new merit system so there still is a chance we wont get 99 and just 90

whatever they do I hope the next update will be the final lvl increase. Spending 4 months trying to get the best gear knowing that in only 3 or 4 months it might be easily outdone by new gear is kind of annoying. Although if they just keep upgrading via magians it wont be so bad.
If they do have anothe 3 or 4 updates planend to get to 99 hopefully empyrean armour will still be top tier. Maybe branching off into different categories of difficulty to obtain/stats. I just dont want everything we work on now to be wasted next update, then everything we work on next to be wasted the update after that etc.

The time line also shows that in sep was suppose to be the end of the WOTG story but they broke that up in 2.

The time line is more of a guide, not set in stone what will happen.

The cap will only be raised to 90. They're saving 95/99 for their new expansion they haven't announced yet.

I think it's best not to think about Abyssea logically, storyline wise anyways. It just screams "a wizard did it".

I coulda sword they said the level cap will be released in 3 parts. Thus meaning the update is the third part. But who knows. Wouldnt be the first time they lied to us.

They never said they would raise the level cap in only three parts. They gave us the timeline for updates for 2010 which has 3 level cap increases with the update in December labeled part III. The image is posted above if you scroll up.

People assumed this meant we'd be 99 by December but that's what happens when you assume.

So let me get this right, you would rather grind out the last 14 levels in a single update?

I dont get all the whining. Personally, I enjoy getting 5 levels at a time.
