Arcanist and Summoner (unintentionally) Revealed?

Some enterprising individuals have apparently located pages on the official Final Fantasy: A Realm Reborn website for a new class (Arcanist) and a new Job (Summoner).  This does make sense as Yoshida  told us that he had decided to put a summoner in the game (all the way back in October 2011).   Recall that he

Op-Ed: The Difference Between Weapon Classes and Jobs.

Armoury: A Collection of Weapons and Tools in a single location. One of the largest misconceptions flowing around the FFXIV fanbase, at least amongst the English and European Demographics, is that the Weapon Based Classes from the Armoury System in Final Fantasy XIV are interchangeable with the “Traditional Jobs” from previous Final Fantasy Job systems.

The Suggestion Box: The Role System

Right now, party play in FFXIV is somewhat of a semi-organized free-for-all. To paraphrase one community member, there is no real strategy to any party activity in this game. Instead of developing a solid party strategy, current party dynamics is to simply have enough bodies to throw at the enemy so players can spam enough

Dengeki Games Vol. 7: Keep Your Name?!

Surprise!  While Weekly Famitsu and Dengeki PlayStation are the two biggest sources of information we have for FFXIV when it comes to magazines, there are a few other publications out there that cover FFXIV as well.  It is rare to see additional articles so close to some major announcements, but Dengeki Games decided to give

This Week in the Magazines (and more!)

Going between two languages, it is easy for things to get lost in translation. Not only that, but for Final Fantasy XIV, the sites for each region are also presented in entirely different ways. That means sometimes there can be pictures or text in one that doesn't show up in the either. At the moment, we have extensive text on the NA site about some of the beast families like Aldgoats and Antelopes. However, the Japanese site does not contain any additional text, just the pictures that were released to the Japanese media as well. For those in Japan, they have to get their information from the magazines released this weekend or one of the several gaming news websites like GAME Watch or 4gamer. Let's check out what was in the magazines that isn't on the NA site as well as what things may have been lost along the way.

Races Named, Classes Revealed

Thanks to some vigilant forum members, we have new information about FFXIV from Japan. Images were leaked late yesterday evening from a 9 page Japanese magazine article believed to be released this week. Chances are high this is coming from Weekly Famitsu. Weekly Famitsu often uses furigana, small characters above kanji to provide the correct
