At the moment, only the name for the role appeared. Yoshida noted when discussing the Beastmaster that the team is looking into a “collection” feature for it. Yoshida also said, “As a limited job, we are proceeding with plans to allow you to play solo or in parties with other limited jobs.” He also noted art and more details about it will appear eventually. 

When implemented following the Dawntrail 7.0 patches, the Beastmaster will become the second limited job in FFXIV. At the moment, the Blue Mage is the only one available. As it is limited, there are certain duties that aren’t available and solo ones aren’t available. That job features a mechanic that involves learning spells by watching different enemies use them when fighting and defeating them. 

As a reminder, there will be two full jobs appearing in FFXIV Dawntrail as well. One is the Viper, which appeared at the 2023 Fan Fest London. The other is the Pictomancer, which debuted at Fan Fest 2024 Tokyo.

Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PS4, PS5, and PC. It is also headed to the Xbox Series X in Spring 2024. The Dawntrail expansion is in development for a Summer 2024 release.
