During the most recent Live Letter presentation, Final Fantasy XIV Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida showed off a lengthy new video of the Job Actions that will debut in Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, the upcoming fourth expansion pack for the wildly popular MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV. The presentation was focused on the various adjustments being made to the playable jobs in XIV, introducing the all-new Reaper and Sage job playstyles, and other changes being made to the game’s combat system.
Check out the trailer below!
There are a whole bunch of quality-of-life improvements being made in Endwalker, including UI updates, improved HUD customization and ground targeting, changes to items and battle rewards, and more. The press release covers a few specific areas:
Job Adjustments – Building upon changes implemented in Shadowbringers, Endwalker will bring new gameplay experiences for Disciples of War and Magic jobs. Updates include significant changes to Summoner job mechanics, the addition of single target buffs for all healer jobs, timing-based effects added to some tank defensive cooldowns, and much more.
Duty Reward Adjustments – Trials on both Normal and Extreme difficulties, which provide weapons as a reward, will now drop a weapon coffer alongside one of the available weapon rewards, allowing players to more easily obtain weapons of their choosing.
System-related Updates – Various quality of life updates such as enhanced HUD customization, improved ground targeting functionality, and UI updates will be added.
Adjustments to HQ Items – To help reduce overall inventory bloat and preventing unintended procurement of HQ items, certain items such as gathered items, enemy drops, and token exchange materials will no longer be available as high-quality items. Gatherer actions, quests, and achievements related to HQ items will undergo adjustments accordingly; however, crafted items and equipment will remain available as both normal- and high-quality.
Post-Release Patch Update – Due to the urgent need to address server congestion, the Data Center Travel system is scheduled for implementation after Patch 6.0
You can watch the entire presentation on YouTube. There’s also a neat piece of artwork by Yosuke Mogi showing off all of the different jobs, which you can see below!
