I would write the PvP off in this game.
SKYeXile TRF - GM - GW2, PS2, WAR, AION, Rift, WoW, WOT....etc... Future Crew - High Council. Planetside 1 & 2.
Originally posted by tkreep I heard that summoners will be able to summon primals like Odin in grand company pvp...not sure tho
Odin is an elder primal. Like Bahamut and Mog King, I doubt it will ever be controllable.
As for the lesser primals, they can eventually be defeated while roaming outdoors, and after certain conditions are met, a free company can summon it for a one-shot decimating punch of a true primal. Once you use the primal, it is set free for another FC to capture.
Summoners, by contrast, will get their own elemental pets that use the "essences" of the primals.
Originally posted by angerbeaver Don't quote me but I have heard there will be no PvP on release but later on there will be. Apparently the guy in charge was a big deal in DoTa PvP.
Wow this thread is really lacking in accurate information.
First of all Arena at least so far has been announced for small groups (4v4), not dueling or triple(?).
Arena will definitely be included at launch. It will actualy be in the game as of Open Beta. All of this is available on the roadmap for beta found here:
Here is how the PvP system in FFXIV will work:
All of this information can be found in the last two live letters, which you can find on youtube.
Also Yoshida was a self described "hardcore player" of DAoC as in Dark Age of Camelot not DoTA. As for whether or not it is an afterthought will have to be seen.
On the one hand Yoshida has been clear that PvP is new for FF games and is new for the majority of their fanbase.
However he did bring on board people with PvP design experience, and is obviously passionate about it himself so it definitely will be more of a focus than in FFXI.
But it won't be FFA full loot using only real skill and custom skins you can spend all your money on so it is crap carebear PvP and not worth looking at unless that happens to be your thing.

So I got the acronym to a game I don't play wrong and I say do not quote me. It may be inaccurate but I say that at the very beginning of my post.

I meant no offense, just clarifying in case anyone thought what you posted was actually the case.
Also, you are apparently able to level up off of PvP from about level 30. I don't remember which Live Letter that was from.
