      Black mage is already in the game?

      • Sucka Free

        and Ronso are in a whole different world

          It doesn’t matter, they’re bringing all kinds of stuff from the other FF worlds. Pretty sure we’re getting the bunny race from Ivalice in 3.0 as one of the new playable. And the XIV races are from XI.

        no i mean vivi from Final Fantasy IX,very popular character

        • Jecht_Sin

          I don’t know why, but the thought of seeing Vivi in underwear when customizing the character gives me nightmares.. 😀

    Looking forward to that free trial. I cannot remember I think it’s like 3 days in the middle of July. I will re-up right after the free trial is over. This is such a fun game and that update was huge!

      It was supposed to be this weekend but I think it was delayed.

  • I’d really like to see a new race, Amalj’aa, Kobolds, Sahagin or Goblins would be pretty amazing. Anything is possible, really.

      I doubt we’d ever get those races as playable because they would need the devs to create new versions of every armor piece in the game for them.

      • Well in the latest update, the developers created new sword designs for a whole bunch of Gladiator/Paladin weapons, in preparation for the upcoming Rogue/Ninja class/job so it wouldn’t surprise me if they did. The developers are going all out with this game.

          why.. do u know that yugiri is a new race that probably hinted as a new playable race for expansion :V
