I know there's a ton of threads like this, but out of boredom, what new job/class do you want after Summoner?

I'm not talking about what most people would want, what the game probably needs, what will most probably get added (Musketeer's Guild, etc.)

but if the developers' sole goal was to please YOU, which job would you want next?

I would probably want Ninja.

As much as I want to see thief... something totally new and original would be really cool. Or a class that really hasn't seen an incarnation in the main FF series, like Green Mage or something else obscure.

Ninja or Thief

These sorts of jobs will come in time but I was bummed that they weren't in 1.0 and don't seem to be in ARR.

Like the other poster an alternate never before seen job, like a mime or time mage would be cool, but I'd rather have a Nin or Thf.

Thief is a big hole in the existing job lineup.

One of the more obscure FF jobs might be cool to see, time mage maybe, or oracle. There's a lot they could do, but they're limited by the armory system. They'd almost have to add new weapon types for any new job they roll out.. either that or pull some shenanigans where a job has a multiclass pre-requisite, and being the job enables the use of different weapon types than the classes that got it.. for instance something like:

Job:Ninja
- Thaumaturge-15
- Marauder-15
- Lancer-30
- Equips katanas as Ninja only

So what you'd have there is a weapon type that isn't equippable by any class, but can be used by Ninjas while they're Ninjas.

It's pretty wacky, but it IS a way around the armory system's limitations.

I'd like to see Thief. I'm not sure how they'd implement it, but most Final Fantasy games have a "Steal/Mug" ability and especially if they're going for a nostalgic throwback title it would be nice to have it.

Others...
Ninja, Samurai, Dark Knight, Blue Mage

I'd like to see a Mime job. For some reason that one always appealed to me. Dark Knight, Samurai and Ninja would also be welcome as melee damage, but I almost prefer for them to hold off and do something original with those later. I don't want a bunch of jobs that have roughly identical playstyles because they didn't take the time to think through how they could be really unique. A job like Mime at least requires them to exercise some creativity and come up with something that plays differently.

Oh another job that would be neat would be Machinist like Edgar from FFVI. Using an automatic crossbow or breaking out a chainsaw might not work in this particular Final Fantasy, but it's a job that isn't seen to often.

There's no need to reach so far... the armory system allows for lots of different job possibilities.

The class could be assassin, and the job could be ninja. Both use katanas.

Boom, success!

Fo' Sho it was.

According to the Player Census' players who considered Pup their main job numbered at around 2% so I'm pretty sure I'll need to reinstall FFXI to relive the pup glory..

Edit:

And now it's at .51% with only 1.6% having even leveled it to 99.... woe is me

I actually made a ghetto Dark Knight class in 1.0 before the 1.23 patch.

You could have Shock Spikes, a Reflect dmg Spike, black magic and other such things before the job patch. It would be an easy class / job to make:

You could either branch it from Warrior (not optimal) or just make a Berserer class > Dark Knight, give them access to BLM and WAR skills.

That's actually what I was thinking too. Luckily, due to Summoner...and whatever it's actual job is called (I only pay attention to the summoner part :P) we know that they can just make a new main job, instead of branching them off of others.

I would assume that they'd also get the Darkness abilities from the games in some form...but I do see it becoming closer to a Shadow Knight heh

Mime class with Blue Mage as its job.

Mime would be able to learn both damage and healing spells from monsters, like a blue mage, but the formal job BLU would grant it access to additional spells and the ability to combine spells (in XI known as Chain Affinity and Burst Affinity).

Marauders are pirates, technically. I also think musketeer will be a pirate-ish class and probably the next one, since Arcanist and Mukseteer guilds alread yexisted and Arcanist was the first new class.

Sorcerer/Sorceress a la Edea, Adel and Ultimecia in Final Fantasy VIII. New Disciple of Magic right there. Maelstrom as an ability or Limit Break would be cool to me. No idea how they could implement it without being overpowered, though. It's also a cross between Black Mage with the elemental spells, so there would have to be a way to differentiate this from BLM.

Edit: Making them more of a debuffing class with powerful offensive spells might work. We don't have RDM (yet...?) so this would fill the niche for a saboteur.

Additional weapon types specifically for jobs sounds like such a hassle. Equip weapon for class. Then equip job stone. Next equip job specific weapon. Three steps that should take just one.

I'm all for new classes and jobs, even if some abilities overlap. The variety in playstyles offered by FFXI is unmatched due to the multitude of jobs and subjob combinations available and gave the game a real sense of character. A lot of MMOs lack that today. Customization of your character should be a major focus in any massively online game. It helps you feel attached to the character you create so it doesn't feel like you're playing some preset "toon".

With that in mind, gimmie Red Mage!

It'd be cool to see a real Geomancer (complete with parka and bells), but unfortunately I doubt they have the game set up to appreciate the architecture a job like that would require. e.g., if the terrain is programmed to be a certain type of terrain, there are all kinds of possible terrain-based effects that would be very cool, even for the use of other classes and monsters. I don't even think it's that hard to set up, really. At least it should be infinitely easier than adding swimming to an MMO.

Besides that ehm, Maneater job for PVP >:) "What you want to take me on??" You have been eaten by Monarc.... You lose!

Seriously: I would like to see dedicated mage types, like Firemage or Thundermage or something. You would have all thunderbased possible spells, like Thunderstrike (Lightning magic def down, Earth Defense up, both castable on enemies and allies), Jolt (Stun), Circumvent (Lightning surrounds you and protects you from 1 magic spell) or Blast (Terror, JA usable every 10 mins), something like that. Add some non-elemental lightning, like with Meteor or Impact and you have a well versed mage.

Yeah, more new jobs and new concepts is something I would like :)
