i hope they really put some effort in here. what could be interesting is, if not only geomancy isnt just a recycling of knowns spells, but also if they make "bells" a solid new weapon type.

i could imagine, they renew the skillchain system with it, like different rings (of bells) in a row causes skillchain like effects. could also make it that, not every bell weapon skill can just be learned by skilling up, but that a lot if not all bell weaponskills come only with specific bells.

IF SE were to put effort into the expansion. Please add tactical battles instead of the lazy Perfect Defence zerg.

It will most likly be one from FFT,

Mime and calculator won't really work with this game but who knows.

if not one of those, i'll be surprised.

but givin how PUP is treated in this game new jobs kind of worry me as to them being useful down the line.

Calculator would be perfect actually. Would require us to type in the damage equations to launch abilities.

Then no one would play it because alot of people in this game don't like jobs that require alot of thinking, which is why everyone loves to play DD jobs.

Well, given that the SoA website has an outline of a sword-wielding fighter of some sort with one glowing hand, surrounded by a ring of runes...

Yeah.

Rune Knight seems rather likely.

Am I the only one that noticed supported platforms are only Xbox and PC lol.

No, I spotted that as soon as I saw the official web site.

All I can say is:

/dance

/comfort

.... i would say Time Mage is next but it's hard to put that job into motion since exisisting mage jobs already have the spells it would have.

Like Hastega and Slowga?

I don't play single player FFs so I have no idea what a time mage traditionally does, but spells combining Haste + increased movement speed and Slow + elements of Gravity seem a natural.

A TRUE time mage would have a spell that could reset a fight, perhaps not to the start, and a Revitalize like ability*. Not to mention the recalls and retraces.

*Perhaps a 1 hour JA? Of course, like the COR's 2 hour, it won't reset itself. Can't be TIM's 2 hour, make it too much a COR clone JA. And it would have to either be 100% or have a unique failure mode.

Or I can burn to 99 and AFK skill up like I do with every other magic, and take all of 10 minutes to learn how to play the job.

I am SO happy you are not on Garu... Lakshmi.

This -kinda- irks me, as I had an even distribution thing going on between my four characters spread across two accounts. Now I'm more or less screwed with unevenness. /le sigh

A bit early to be getting into this, but which race(s) do you think naturally fit the scenario of being a geomancer? As far as correlation to the lore and background while being fundamentally natural for the talents a geomancer wields.

I agree, I kinda don't like the idea of MORE jobs coming. We already have 20 and thy can all go up to Lv.99!

What more could they possibly wanna do with XI? Not to mention FFXIV own system...

If I we're directing the game I'd maybe put one more job in, that could kinda do every single thing the other jobs could do like Mime. I'd make the job really hard to obtain, and unique.

First off the sword in the lower picture is not one handed sword sized in this game. He is just holding it while he casts. Or waves his pom-pom.

So two handed weapons and energy manipulation unlike the current magic system is my guess. Anything like that in the single player FFs at all? Well... other than DRK. DRKs don't get pompoms.

Oh yes, A or A- in Greatsword.

Personally, I feel Galka fits it best, with Mithra being a close second.

I know many would cry foul over this, but one of the things I liked in World of Warcraft of all things was the limited selection of jobs, but the vast capacities and branches of utilization in each. For once I'd like to see the already staggering number of jobs we have expand and find their own foundation rather than having this sketched and skewed pendulum of bandwagoning with each update favor.
