Note: I find myself wanting to express my opinions on several topics and I think this is the place to be. My opinions are personal thoughts (and are not a critique), which I am not claiming to be right nor wrong. I am not expecting comments, otherwise I would have went to the official forum. In the event that there would be, I honor and respect everybody else’s opinion, though I’d prefer a healthy conversation over that of a heated debate.
Some Current Opinion(s):
Some FFXIV players expect various announcements and reveals in the Around the World Digital Fan Festival
Here are what I am predicting and expecting from the upcoming digital fan festival.
I think the full announcement trailer will play because if it is an extended teaser then that means there is another planned event, which there isn’t any indication of... yet.
At least three more explorable areas and the full cast will be featured. If not the concept/theme then more clues about the high-end and alliance raids. I think either the convocation or The Twelve will be somewhere there.
The melee job to be introduced may not be necromancer (one that animates souls of the dead) or reaper (one that collects souls of the recent dead). The first one doesn’t fit FFXIV role. Though between the two, reaper is more feasible as the new job. Zenos may sport either of the job exclusively but not available to the player. Not every path featured in Yoshida’s shirts are jobs for the players. The Viera race was hinted using a shirt. It is already widely expected the new job will share the maiming gear with DRG.
I am hoping there will be instanced housing in the Island Sanctuary content. It will really solve the housing crisis. Leave the neighborhood housing to FCs.
I’d like to have a number of glamour plates equal to the number of all jobs, including DOH, DOL and limited jobs. At minimum, at least all combat jobs. With two new jobs, I need three more (as I’d put my DRG now to plates since it will be sharing gears).
A third Encyclopedia Eorzea lore book. Again, if the previous two books sold like gold, a book featuring the most critically acclaimed expansion Shadowbringers will sell like diamonds. If I can exploit this wish then also would like the English version of the Unending Journey books.
If there is no other event after the fan festival, then the job action video may be shown in one of the segments, perhaps the live letter.
It is a long shot but hopefully male Viera and female Hrothgar, with male Viera not diminutive to its female counterpart.
It is also a long shot but an XBox version. It doesn’t affect me actually as I am a PS5 player.
Same thing as I said before the February Announcement Showcase, the list can go on and on but the important thing is each player needs to manage their expectation and control from raging when their expectations are not met. At the end of the day, we should be glad to be able to continue playing a game we all like in this pandemic times.
Interesting personal thoughts ^^
For the class reveal, I think this website is very interesting. It lists all jobs in the Final Fantasy Series: https://www.ffcompendium.com/h/jobs.shtml
Link this here because I think it would perhaps interest you as well. Cheers!
Thanks R'ehya Lucifera. I'm checking the link you provided. I'm an FF fan and I never knew this site existed before. Regards.
