Final Fantasy 14 Director Details Upcoming Job Changes for Ninja, Samurai, and Summoner

Final Fantasy 14 Director Details Upcoming Job Changes for Ninja, Samurai, and Summoner

Future collaborations with other games remain top secret.

The Shadowbringers expansion for Final Fantasy 14 might have dazzled players with new content, but that doesn't mean the Naoki Yoshida's development team at Square Enix aren't looking to make any changes. There'll be a few tweaks to established jobs coming within the next few patches, Yoshida told USgamer at Gamescom.

When asked if there are any changes the team is looking to make to current Jobs in Final Fantasy 14, Yoshida was pretty clear on the work that lies ahead. "... there are a few challenges left," Yoshida says. "For example, the play-feel for Ninja needs to be addressed, and there will be a major overhaul with the Ninja with patch 5.1."

Elsewhere, there are changes coming to the Samurai and Summoner, where the classes are set to get a little more "feedback" from their actions. "Another job that we'll be looking to change is Samurai," Yoshida says. "Especially with the level 80 action Shoha, players find that there's not any feedback with that action, so the team is looking into changing anything to do with Shoha with patch 5.1. The Summoner will receive changes for pet controls with patch 5.1."

When asked if the team was exploring any future collaborations with other games, in the same vein as the forthcoming Nier Raid, Yoshida looked at me and shouted "top secret!" in perfect English. Looks like we'll have to wait and see.
