So, even though I should be taking a break from blogging for the holidays, some exciting info dropped about the Stormblood expansion, and I just had to gather a post about it.

First:

Stormblood Release Date June 20, 2017

Stormblood Preorder starts January 24, 2017

Some Collector’s Edition goodies:

  • Wind-Up Bartz Minion
  • Syldra Mount – Underwater (!) mount
  • Red Mage Main Arm Chicken Knife

That’s right… I said underwater! Because swimming and diving are going to be a thing in Stormblood.

It looks like even our chocobos can swim!

But most exciting to me is all the new information on Red Mage, a job I’m very much hyped for now.

 

This is everything I hoped for in the job from what I see so far. If it’s anywhere as cool as it looks here, I’m looking forward to making it my main once the expansion drops.What we do know about it:

  • Role is ranged DPS.
  • Weapon is rapier and crystal pair
  • Attaches crystal to rapier for casting and attacking
  • Starting level is 50
  • Uses red magic, which is a mix of black and white magic.
  • Has chain magic, which is used to power up magic power

You can see a recap of all of the slides here. So what do you think?
