AAR Classes/Jobs Changes?

MethiosMethios Brandywine, MDPosts: 157Member
Wondering if SE is changing how jobs work in the aspect of making them more FF like such as Bard being more of a FF bard  built more around buffs/debuffs and using harps and other musical items and less of a dps focus class which is in FFXIV.  Are  jobs going to be stuck only equiping 1 certain type of weapon?  I honestly feel they should def change that up in AAR.

    Every class has a job . Rangers class turns into a bard sings songs and uses bow . Lancers class turns into dragoon without the dragon. Arcainest turns into summoner . There is a class list somewhere here can't remember where.

    I understand that with the Classes becoming Jobs.  My thing is for example archer should become ranger makes more sense to me in the FF world . Ranger would focus on physical ranged DPS while Bard being focused on buffing/debuffing aspects.  Bard to me is way more support then the current version and I would hate to see other classes in a FF game be only Tank/DPS/Healer specific and lose specialties like classic FF games and FFXI.

    Or archer bard my bad. I would agree archer should become ranger . Unless ranger gets added and becomes dullest or vice versa. Or thf becomes ranger for some odd reason. Have to wait and see I guess

    I wasn't to happy when they announced that Bard would be a class from the Archer job and proceeded to abandon my archer, but don't dismiss them entirely as they were very much in demand in a lot of set-ups, in the right hands they are good to have in your group.

    Don't think the Devs are to concerned about the current job/class system as it is, and are putting all their energy into creating the new world and the content into that.  It is going to be a few months before the lvl cap raises, and when that happens I think we will see some changes to the job/class system and possibly new ones added, which probaly is an obvious statement.  I have a sneaky suspicion Red Mage and Thief may make a return, there was a guild in Limsa for musketeers or what looked like one, so they may even work that into the game.

    I believe the only thing we know about the new Monk in ARR is that they'll be able to combo endlessly. They haven't released many details about the class/job changes yet.

    For what i heard to be a monk you have to begin with a pugilist. In short you begin with the armory system. You chose a job from the weapon you use after a while you can vecome a master and unlock other jobs.

    Here the link for the armory ststem job so far:

    War jobs:
