    There is supposed to be a translator at some point... maybe just not for their long ingraciated introduction since non japanese people probably don't care about that.

    Yeah this is completely retarded, apparently they are translating via twitter but as an adult I have no idea how to use that site.

     

    I suggest watching it via this website:

    #XIVLive Q: It looks like the game is on the way of becoming another FFXI. Is this intentional?



    A: We received a lot of similar feedback when we implemented the auto-attack system. No, we are not intentionally trying to make the game similar to FFXI. We just wanted the players to be able to play the game at an easier pace.

     

    #XIVLive Q: How do you determine which monsters are huge and which ones stay small?

    A: We base it on how we feel the monster should be seen by players. Intimidating or not, etc.



    ‎‎Q: Does Yoshi-P play as a Miqo'te or Lalafell, or Roegadyn?

    A: I typically always play a Lalafell!

     

    #XIVLive Q: Do you have any plans of implementing an efficient and easy-to-use party formation feature? Currently, everyone is shouting in town and it takes quite some time to efficiently form a party...



    A: This is a very important topic for us and we are currently looking into creating a system where it is much easier to form parties.

    #XIVLive Q: In FF series, ancient spells are ultimate spells. IN FFXIV, they're not. Will it be adjusted later?

    A: In 1.20, there will be major action and magic spell changes. I am thinking about adjusting this in there. Look forward to that change!

     

    #XIVLive Q: When do you think you will be able to revamp the linkshell system?

    A: We have been receiving a lot of feedback regarding the linkshell system. We will try our hardest to get this out as soon as possible. We are actually having a meeting today to discuss how we can improve the system!

     

    #XIVLive Q: Could you tell us all of the jobs that are going to be released in 1.21?



    A: There is one job that has yet to be announced... What we have announced so far is paladin, white mage, black mage, dragoon, monk, and bard. Last, here is a warrior image!

    I'm not sure why I'm watching this...I've never played any of the FF MMO's, but I guess I'm just curious about what they're doing to this game that has been so poorly recieved.  If they make some good changes, heck, maybe I'll buy it and give it a go.

  • MuruganMurugan D, COPosts: 1,494Member

    Showing some new Ifrit-gear from 1.19, as well as the expanded inventory (200 items on each character!) Showing some materia, too!

     

    #XIVLive Q: Hello. I started playing after release, but I quit after hitting rank 30. I plan to come back. In your eyes, what do you think is the main feature of the game in its current state? It would help a lot if you can clear that up for players that are planning to return to the game.



    A: It’s hard to say in its current state. We are only about 50% done regarding content. However, if we are talking about 1.19, I would have to say chocobos and Ifrit will be the main content. Everyone should get that FF-feeling with this content.

     

    #XIVLive Q: How will you earn spiritbond points for Materia Craft? Will it be based on the number of hits? Parties you're in? When does it reach 100%?

    A: Spiritbond will increase when you earn experience points.

     

    #XIVLive Q: Will you be able to attach materia to equipment created via the old recipes?



    A: We will not be allowing materia craft to be used in conjunction with the old equipment. Apologies for this

     

    #XIVLive Q: We have seen Ifrit weapons. Are there any plans to implement Ifrit armor in the future?



    A: The Ifrit weapons are heavily focused on Ifrit’s horns. I wanted to implement weapons with special effects so we will only implement weapons this time. However, we are currently in the process of creating new armor (job specific armor, crafter specific armor, etc.) for the upcoming content. Stay tuned!

  • MuruganMurugan D, COPosts: 1,494Member

    #XIVLive Q: PvP has often been touched on, but exactly what kind of elements are you thinking to add?



    A: First off, we are designing it so that players that do not wish to take part in PvP are not forced to. We are planning 2 things for PvP. The first are battles in the Coliseum. The second is an PvP area where you can fight for control of various influences.

     

    #XIVLive Q: As a gamepad user, I find it difficult to scroll through the list of actions. Are there any plans to update the interface?



    A: We will be working on updating the user interface not only for the gamepad, but for the keyboard/mouse users as well. Please be sure to provide us with your feedback.

     

    #XIVLive Q: Will you be adding chocobo animations while on chocoback? Like waving while riding?

    A: Currently we don’t have any plans for this, but if there are a lot of requests, we will look into it.



    Q: I understand that the chocobos implemented now are male. Will there be a female chocobo?

    A: Chocobos are heavily connected with Ishgard and come only from their at the moment. In order to maintain their exclusivity, currently only male chocobos are being given out to the rest of the city-states. Also when you name Chocobo, you might want to name them male-type names!

     

    #XIVLive Q: What is the hardest part of this past year for you? And what is the happiest thing that happened in the past year?

    A: Many hard things! (lol) My very first month after the change was the hardest. However, my happiest moment is when you, players cheer me on! Thank you so much! :)

     

    #XIVLive Q: I heard you like spicy food. How spicy are we talking here?



    A: There’s a soup-style curry at a certain restaurant that is supposedly extremely spicy. I can eat it without even breaking a sweat.



    ‎‎Q: Yoshi-P, I bet you want a smoke right about now!

    A: Haha. Yes I do! I would like a cup of coffee as well...



    Q: What's the best part about online games in your opinion?



    A: The most attractive aspect to me is that there are so many things to do and people to meet everyday!

     

    #XIVLive Q: When you rank up in Grand Companies, what kind of good things will happen? Also, please tell us some of the rank names.

    A: First, you will be recognized on the Grand Company Lodestone page! Also many good things will happen such as an increase in the number of company seals you can obtain. Give it a shot in 1.19!



    Q: Are there any plans on improving the pugilist class?



    A: You should see for yourself in patch 1.19!

  • MuruganMurugan D, COPosts: 1,494Member

    #XIVLive Q: Why do we lose everything including gear when failing the 'forbidden' material craft? It seems like too harsh of a penalty!



    A: Yes, the penalty is big. When you get all seven equipment slots set with 1 materia each, you will be very strong. If you want to be stronger, there must be a risk associated with it. Feedback on this will be welcome though.

     

    #XIVLive Q: Can you give some pointers for beating ifrit?



    A: The normal mode is pretty easy to beat. However, the hyper mode is going to be very difficult. You’ll feel the true power of a "god" in that fight! Multiple stages... horns... I've said too much already!



    Q: Is Yoshi-p almost capped on accessory points? You’ve got a bunch of accessories!

    A: Yes, indeed. I can put about 6 more though. lol

     

    #XIVLive Q: What kind of other mounts will there be aside from chocobos in the future?



    A: When we did a survey on the forums, we received a lot of requests for "Magitek Armor" as an example. Things like that will be a good reference going forward!



    Q: Will we have the chance of meeting the leaders of the Grand Companies soon? What about the NPCs that appear in the main scenario?



    A: You’ll get a chance to meet the NPCs that appear in the main scenario very soon. Also, there’s an ongoing event that the GC leaders are involved in. You’ll have the chance of meeting the leaders of each GC as well. Stay tuned!

     

    #XIVLive Q: Do the developers think the rate in which players completed Dzemael was fast? Slow?



    A: The community team predicted the first clear would be after about 8 hours. I predicted 3 days and it turned out it was pretty much that. So I think it’s just right. Ifrit is even harder, so good luck!



    Q: How did you get started in the gaming industry?



    A: Well, I wanted to write story scenarios to begin with.

    I worked my way up from a large MMO-title and became director after that.

     

    #XIVLive Q: After the claiming system change in patch 1.19, I'm afraid everyone will be power leveling each other. What do you think of this?



    A: It depends on what you consider power leveling. I just want to make sure friends are able to help each other if they want to challenge content together.



    Q: I hear rumors about moon phase or the direction you face giving special effects to crafting. What's the truth?



    A: I know it's talked about in forum, too. Hmm. Maybe some things are better to be left unanswered.

     

    #XIVLive Q: On the Lodestone, level 51-60 recipes were posted. What is the meaning of this? Will the level cap be lifted?



    A: Whether the cap will be lifted is a separate question. We posted these recipes to show off some new items as well as the necessity for equipment for high level and crafts that level 50 players can gain experience from.



    Q: Can you tell us about the new class system?



    A: For the class adjustments, we are planning to have every class possess their own identity. Also, actions with multiple elements and facets to them. In regards to jobs, you will be able to take on job quests from level 30+, and once you complete those will you will be able to use those jobs.

     

    #XIVLive Q: Will you be able to convert equipment crafted with old recipes into materia?



    A: Yes. The old recipes will disappear from the game, so convert all your beloved gear into materia and add it to the new equipment.



    Q: Which Grand Company should I join? As the equipment rewards are different, I am having a hard time deciding.

    A: There will be more chances to earn company seals coming and grand company balance overall will be adjusted. So don’t worry too much about rewards. You should pick the grand company you think is a good fit for you. Also we will not make changes in a way that friends in different grand companies can’t play together.



    Q: Will there be a delivery system?



    A: We will definitely be implementing a delivery system. Unfortunately, it’s something that is going to take time and I am unable to provide a date for that just yet.



    Q: Do you have plans to add mandragora into Eorzea?



    A: I will ask the character team if they can add it to their list!

     

    #XIVLive Q: When do you think the cool/sexy looking gear will be implemented?



    A: We are currently in the process of working out the details. I want to be sure the class gear is implemented first. We will try to implement the cool/sexy looking gear by 1.22 or 1.23.

     

    #XIVLive Q: Is there any information you can provide regarding the impending doom of Eorzea?



    A: Out of the 4 keywords that I provided earlier in the year (FUN, LIVE, REBOOT, REBUILD), the keyword “LIVE” will have a huge impact for this event. You’ll notice many changes that will occur in the world of Eorzea. I would like you see the changes for yourself in patch 1.19 and then use your imagination for what’s to come.

    Sorry for interrupting the wave of news / translations but can anybody please update me on anything being said about being able to change races at ANY point in later patches or whenever at all? 

    Thanks :)

    Only thing they have said on this topic is that they were looking into the possibility.  Which I guess is better than a "no" right?

    Aye, much better :) Thank you for answering.

    Hopefully, they'll shed more light on this topic later on. I know quite a few players who would gladly go back and play again but they both want to keep their progress on the current character (whoever played FFXIV knows exactly why) and play a different race.

    They have also said they are looking into adding this option (again not much, but not a no).

  • MuruganMurugan D, COPosts: 1,494Member

    The concept art they showed at 27:35 is Fighter Warrior job ?? in FF11 was Warrior so changed the name.



    The concept art they showed at 27:51 is Bard job



    28:02 YoshiP > here's the bow art... oops wrong one



    28:11 YoshiP > This here too



    28:18 YoshiP > And here's the bow



    28:20 Foxclon > this kind of miss happens lol (showing the image)



    28:44 YoshiP > (laugh) people (staff) outside is mad (for showing the image lol)



    29:49 YoshiP > (showing video of PUG using ifrit weapon) and here is the well talked PUG weapon and also this is the new dungeon coming in this patch.



    31:29 YoshiP > (showing the item screen) blue materia they are showing is Materia IV that has magic critical hit +50 and red one above is Physical Critical hit +50 materia IV



    32:01 showing screen which shows materias attached to the weapon



    32:39 showing materia icon with number next to the weapon/gear is number of materia attached



    38:50 YoshiP talking about why chocobo's are only male right now saying that Ishgard are the ones controlling the chocobo's and they are only allowing male chocobo's outside of Ishgard at the moment.



    44:50 YoshiP talking about PvP where one type is where you face each other and fight in front but for the other type is a zone where you go in and it's suddenly a war zone so anyone can attack you from anywhere but just be noted that you will get warning before entering the zone so you don't have to worry too much about getting PK'ed



    58:26 YoshiP Q: What's after Ifrit is it Titan? YoshiP> mmmm and busts out the weapon with moogle on it and dev/staff outside is saying ahh (lol) but yeah it's going ot be a curve ball but next god we're thinking is that one.



    01:04:00 YoshiP talking about PL but basically same thing he said before on his post for the reason why he's allowing PL.



    01:07:40 YoshiP talking about how the recipe on The Lodestone is showing level 51-60 but saying these are for leveling up when you're near 50 and doesn't mean the cap is going to be raised. (Just like mob level doesn't stop at 50)



    01:15:30 YoshiP talks about Sexy (looking) gear he should be able to have something by 1.22/1.23

    I really am quite shocked that SE did this. Wada even poked his head in to say a few words. I don't think any groundbreaking discoveries were made, but honestly, I'm just happy that SE reached out to their community in a more personal way.

    The second concept is actually Northern Thanalan apparently (the image on the top right says Crystal Tower one of the future landmarks of that area), and the first may not be Black Shroud (though pretty sure it is) we will get confirmation when they repost the video/transcript with full translation.

     

    Also when Wada came in he made a comment about the false media blip (most likely he was refering to the Japanese media) that seemed to imply they had just started working on their overhaul when that wasn't the case.  This most likely stemmed from his interview where he admitted (again) that the game had failed to meet expectations and that it was undergoing major changes.  The topic was only briefly mentioned but Yoshida said something like: "yeah that pissed me off too".

    This was informative to me since I've been out of the game since launch, I didn't know they were for sure bringing back the FF classes. I just downloaded 1.19 last night and gave it another try, I'm impressed how much improvements have been made. I might come back once they bring back the traditional FF classes.

  • Angier2758Angier2758 Mt. Prospect, ILPosts: 1,011Member

    Hope they include a jump feature!

     

    Too soon?

     

    But seriously, it looks like they are making the game better.  I wonder if they'll take the class switching stuff out;  I honestly don't like that especially if they incorporate some pvp elements... before I quit Rift the class/spec switching was getting into a constant FOTM cycle...  people just picked whatever was most powerful (or the perception of it was).

    Now *those* - especially the top one, since it's easier to make out - look like FF maps.

    Excellent.

    I would have loved to be able to partake in that as I have a few questions specific to future area design; unfortunately I was working :-/
