Too long, but I did read. :D

Sorry to hear about your childhood, but fortunately everything worked out in the end for you. I can't say I share your experience when it comes to this site, but I can say that this is the friendliest place I've ever come across on the Internet. I guess there's no need to say how dear it is to me, considering I'm still here after almost a decade. :D

I believe they send out those emails once a week, so I'll know in a week. I won't get my hopes up, but it's still worth a shot. ;D

And I got the email this morning! ^_^

Was about to post this. ;D Nice song, but I don't find it very memorable. Maybe my opinion will change if we get another Nidhogg-style battle.

Btw. can you check if I'm eligible for that Returner's free login? It's been three months since my last subscription ended, but I am not sure if last month's free login made me ineligible for the Returner's stuff.

Yes, you can have a transparent map on screen while playing the game.

I never posted the latest trailer:

Important change - Each character can choose two different jobs in the remaster.

Rest assured that I will. ;D Or not.

There's a 4-day free login. I assume it'll reset my timer for the return campaign. I figured I should use this for the Easter egg mount. :D

Next (final) patch is on Tuesday. There is also a callback campaign. Square is really putting a lot of effort into avoiding my money. ::)

I'm not sure I understand your question. If it's any help, the starting vendor weapons from HW were ilvl115, while the ARR relic was ilvl135. I guess we can expect something around ilvl260 at the start of Stormblood.

I'll try to post information I find about the game until it's released.

Release date: July 11

New features:

- Job system from the IZJS version of the game. Each character can pick two jobs as opposed to a single job in IZJS. Once you pick a job for a character, you won't be able to change it anymore. The vanilla license board isn't included in the game.
- Option to choose between the original and the remastered soundtrack. They made it ambiguous whether or not the original soundtrack will be a paid DLC.
- Option to choose between the English and the Japanese voices.
- Uncompressed voices and BGM.
- Eight new music tracks will be added.
- A 100 floor Trial Mode. You load a save file from the main game and use the characters and items from that save file. You can save every 10 floors. You cannot choose a different save or replenish your items during the trial mode, so make sure you are prepared because the last 10 floors are very difficult.
- Gambits will be different for every job now. No word on the ability to buy all of them at the start of the game like in IZJS.
- Improved graphics. Most notable difference will be Vaan's abs. ;D Everything will be rendered in HD and there are some lighting improvements.
- No more spell queues - YAY!
- Ability to speed up the game (x2 and x4 speed).
- Shorter loading times between zones.
- Option to invert both camera axes (I don't think I need this after FFXII made me use double inverted axes in every other game lol)


Black Mage
Bushi (Samurai in the fan translation of IZJS)
Foebreaker (Breaker in the fan translation of IZJS)
Red Battlemage (Red Mage in the fan translation of IZJS)
Shikari (Hunter in the fan translation of IZJS)
Time Battlemage (Time Mage in the fan translation of IZJS)
White Mage

Translation differences

It seems some items have gone name changes. If the gambits shown in the PAX demo are anything to go buy, these are some of them:

Smelling Salts -> Nu Khai Sand
Alarm Clock -> Prince's Kiss
???? -> Domaine Calvados

Mechanics differences between FFXII and FFXII IZJS

The most noteworthy difference is the treasure system. The treasure positions have been changes. You no longer need to pass through two others zones to reset the treasure chests. Simply exiting and re-entering will be enough. The normal-rare item split is 95/5 instead of 90/10.

Most important combat difference is the removal of damage caps. Another notable difference is related to Quickenings. Mist Charges are no longer bound to MP. MP growth has been adjusted accordingly.

Having finished the game just the other day, I feel like a lot of the praise is for nostalgia's sake. I enjoyed the story for its simplicity, but I also think it would not be so well received today. I have to agree that the characters are good and memorable, even though most of them have little to no background. Combat can be fun and there are some well designed battles that require different strategies. The encounter rate killed all the fun, though. Luckily, I played on an emulator and could speed up the battles or abuse the save states to avoid them completely. Overall, I'm somewhere in the middle concerning this game.

I beat the game the other day. Currently playing The After Years. One of these days I'll be able to say that I finished all the main entries of the series. >.>
