Final Fantasy XIV Team Laying Groundwork For Job System


Final Fantasy XIV producer, Naoki Yoshida, is back with another “Letter from the Producer” column, where he provides a look at one of the new airships in the game:


Airships, as previously reported, will be included in patch 1.19, and will serve as a means of transport between the different states. Chocobos will also be making their debut in the same patch and will allow for faster land travel. More on that here.


Beyond 1.19, more changes are planned for patch 1.20, which Yoshida touched upon as well. Amongst these will be improved item searching, an achievement system, a second Primal battle and the groundwork for a new job system, which will be officially released in patch 1.21.


1.21 will include the addition of new Job-specific gear and abilities. You can read over a more extensive list of planned updates for patches 1.20 and 1.21 in Yoshida’s column.
