Final Fantasy XIV / Re: FFXIV General discussion topic

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.

Final Fantasy XII / Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age
« on: March 11, 2017, 11:35:07 PM »

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)

Jobs:

Archer
Black Mage
Bushi (Samurai in the fan translation of IZJS)
Foebreaker (Breaker in the fan translation of IZJS)
Knight
Machinist
Monk
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)
Uhlan
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.

The Good Old Days / Re: FFIV: Love it or Hate it?

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. >.>

Looks like they didn't even scale any numbers. This fight is a joke. >.>

I play XIV for a month every couple months. I'll probably resub next month or April at the latest. I recommend starting now, so you have enough time to play through the base game and the first expansion before Stormblood hits in June.

Apart from XIV, I'm not really playing anything. The last game I played was Metal Gear Solid V.

Btw. I expect a Steam release for XII next year. Maybe even earlier.

I found a video of the Ultima fight. To be honest, it looks pretty boring. I hope they add some new mechanics instead of simply scaling the damage for release.

Samurai's a DPS, then?

We also need to move our house to Shirogane. ;D

Here's the trailer:

I just finished the main story. The dungeon is actually on the fourth quest, but the whole thing is so short that it felt like it was the second quest.

Waiting for you to do that one. I haven't done any of the dungeons yet, either.

I think he's harder than Sophia, though.

Are we getting all of this in Part 1 or will some the content be pushed back to Part 2?
