Today Square-Enix released a ton of new artwork from their upcoming MMO release, Final Fantasy XIV, which showcases the game’s various classes. There are 18 classes in all, and these shots are a combination of all those, some more than twice with different races. All these classes fall into four different groups. You have your craftsmen and gatherers to start with. Sometimes you just have to work for a living, right? On the other hand, you have your fighters and casters, the more battle-oriented of the four disciplines. I think I want to be a ninja cat myself, because you know, ninjas and cats go together. What do you think?
Or maybe I’ll just let all the fools go out to battle and be content with a life of fishing or herbalism – be a pacifist. When I play, hopefully I’ll avoid the standard mage or ranger archetypes that I always tend to go for. I need someone next to me to slap my hand if I try to go through with it.
Final Fantasy XIV hits in late September for the PC and, unfortunately, not until March of next year if you’re hoping to play on the PS3.
