FFXIV: Stormblood – Samurai Confirmed and Doma!

Guys! Guys! The hype meter just went off the scale for me!

Samurai was announced, and that was no huge surprise, though a pleasant confirmation.

But what I didn’t see coming (though I should have given the fact that SAM come from Doma) was the full-feature inclusion of Doma itself.

Holy crap! DOMAAAAA! *battle cry*

This (and that amazing undewater city above!!) is what the team has been sitting on secretly, and I’m blown away and super excited! I totally want housing in Doma! 

That was just off the top of my head, but it looks like we’re GETTING HOUSING IN DOMA!

Move feature please???

And it’s been confirmed: “Also house moving feature coming”

Oh man! New house for me!

Here’s the new FULL Stormblood trailer:

About Samurai

What we know about SAM, taken from Reddit Live Thread:

  • SAM is melee DPS
  • Job Quest begins in Eorzea
  • Start level: 50
  • Associated class: none
  • Main weapon: Katana
  • Battle design: Gear is same as Monks
  • Art of Sen, and its 3 forces: setsu, getsu, and ka
  • Store energy in katana to unleash special attacks
  • Timing of these attacks are big part of combat

With only two jobs added, and both being DPS, they addressed a few other concerns:

  • Earlier they talked about DPS queue times and have been watching statistics during 3.x so they felt it would work out okay. People who play heal/tank typically stayed that role
  • They hope to breath new life into existing tank & healer with the combat refresh

FFXIV: Level 50 Paladin Get!

So, tonight after a leveling roulette and a few rounds of PotD, I was sitting at halfway through level 49 Paladin. That’s when I realized that I haven’t touched that class’ hunting log since I was something like level 11.

That’s pretty laid back and enjoyable, so I got to work on it. Not long after, I’d scored my level 50 Paladin, and still have a lot of hunting left over!

I had a stack of Poetics sitting in the bag, so I picked up some tank armor. I already had a Wootz scimitar that a retainer brought back, so I decided to put that to use, too!

Now, it’s onward to 60!
