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.
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?
I think there aren’t enough griffons in the Collector’s Edition to get me to buy it instead of the normal one. 😀
Hold that rapier properly, and then I’m sold. (yes, I am nitpicking for the heck of it)
Seems like it doubles for a staff when the mage puts the crystal on the pommel. Don’t ask me how they hold the blade at that point. XD
With magic they hold it! It’s literally “a wizard did it!” 😉
