    Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood

    May as well get discussion going with this. I'll try to update this post throughout the day:

    Source (said person is at Fan Fest)

    - Release date: early summer 2017
    - Story will be focused on liberating Ala Mhigo from the Garleans
    - MNK will be the "job" central to the story, kinda like how DRG was in HW
    - Rhalgr's Reach: Resistance HQ (originally I thought this was name of a possible new housing area)
    - Level cap goes up to 70
    - "revamped battle system" and "additional skill system overhaul"; no idea what the former entails. The latter is referring to the cross class skills. The revamp appears to involve underused skills being removed
    - New dungeons and raids; no surprise there, really, but interesting note is story and normal modes on even number patches...so maybe savage ones later? Not sure what to expect there
    - Eureka, the Forbidden Lands, which is apparently going to be 14 version of Dynamis (I have no idea what that entails; any FF11 vets would, I believe)
    - Item inventory expansion; well shit, that's worth the price of admission alone (EDIT: This may not be in at launch, but it's on the board for being done during next xpac)
    - New housing area; where or when not stated

    Edit: Redditors freaking wrecking me in terms of updating on info show during the keynote. Go here for more details.

    That wasn't a dancer. They were monks they said in the stream. Red Mage essentially confirmed by Yoshidas shirt.

    Technically didn't they say the warrior of light is a monk this time and monk takes center stage. That looked like yda dressed as one of the blade dancers of ala mhigo from 1.0

    Red Mage is already confirmed by the Scarlet Witch shirt Yoshi was wearing.

    Yoshi-P wore a t-shirt of Marvel's Scarlet Witch, said that was the only hint he'd give at this time
    So... Red Mage confirmed?

    Uh...monk has been in the game since forever. It'll be the job of focus, a la dragoon in Heavensward.

    Yeah, I wasn't thinking when they said Monk themed expansion. It should be Samurai & Red Mage{seeing as he already confirmed it like he did Dark Knight} and those 2 classes are two most asked for and would make sense for the theme of the expansion.

    As others have said though, SAM I hope remains DD, and RDM please don't make them a healer as they turned into for XI. Both of these classes would be unique debuffers as originally intended.

    There is speculation that the female is actually Yda. Fuck it it's speculation and the tag didn't work so we don't know even if it's true yet.

    In 1.0 Ala Mhigo was known for its Dancers known as "Blade Dancers" and you ran into one and a few items were craftable in connection to them but all got removed in ARR.

    Haven't all the trailers been just generic characters?

    I kind of wished I played 1.0, want to see some of the difference and all that. Even if it did suck from a technical and game point of view it's always an interesting thing to see.

    There is always a warrior of light stand in to represent the player the traielrs tell his story with HW having him escaping uldah to become a dragoon and now hes a monk apparently. Estinien was in the HW trailer and obviously CID and the grand company leaders among others were in ARR's.

    -bare in mind Ala Mhigans are most commonly a light tea skin colour and a blonde haired, fair skinned fist fighter sounds awfully familiar...

    Guess there is that trailer, though it seems to be more of the exception than the rule so far.
