I think i'd like:

new races:
Manthras
a wolf-like race

new jobs
Geomancer
Time Mage
Chemist

Misc.
Just thought of this recently, haven't thought it through completely, but being able to equip what your sub-job can equip.

there were some other things, but i can't think of them right now

I posted this in one of the main FFXI forums but expansion areas in the current Midlands.

I like to see parts of Kuzotz Region that are inaccessible, ie the beach areas and a few mountain areas. I have an idea of a storyline but not formalize yet. They can add a BCNM/ENM there too in which you have to enter the Sinkholes during double weather or trade an item to them.

Tavnazian Archipelago - quests to visit the old city viewed in the FMV. They could actually make you do assaults here to clear the area.

I have other ideas but that just a few...

visiting the city in the FMV would be great.

come up w/ some way for us to participate lol
would take some creative plot devices and what not, but SE could probably pull it off.

Not sure if you know this or not...

(WARNING: COP SPOILERS)

The city in the intro CS is Blueblade Fell. Technically, you can't go -there-, but you can go to the northeast corner of Lufaise Meadows where the fomors pop at night and see it.

If you follow along with the Tavnazian story (i.e. not just enterenterenterenterenterenter to skip through cutscenes) or the later parts of the San d'Orian missions with Rochefogne, they describe how the Orcs attacked the city of Tavnazia and drove everyone out. The intro CS, if I recall correctly, showed a girl escaping from the Orcs. I think I heard something about one of the NPCs in the Safehold being that girl, but I may be wrong on that.

So that city is already in the game... you just can't get there. If they ever added it as an area you can access, it would either be desolate or Orc-infested.

I doubt we'll see a new race (i think it would be too hard to implement although i could be wrong). I was HIGHLY dissapointed in the ToA expansion and I still believe RoZ was the best, so anything that gives the same feel and action that RoZ did would be really nice.

Maybe add more to the main country stories (add some new twist or something involving the many areas that whave been added)??

geomancer sounds cool but it would end up being a form of rdm (debuffs, some low magic damage)

I hope the new expansion has a good story, but about the races, yeah, i doubt it will happen, I wouldn't even that excited if it did happen I guess, I'd probably just make a character in the new race and get it up to like level 20 and be done with it. Although it would be interesting if there was a way to change your race (even if it cost a lot)

This is what I'd like to see:
(keep in mind this is a long list of wishfull thinking)

"New Jobs"
Dancer: Manipulate Enmity
-finally some dancing to compete with "Guild Wars" and "WoW"
Necromancer: Raise the dead in a darker way
-astral projection, Avatar Fusion and imagine "Forbidden Magics"
Geomancer: New tanker
-like the ones in Final Fantasy Tactics
Pictomancer: Pet-job
-like your NPC, only you have more pearls and creative freedom on their looks
Mediator: Trade stats STR for MND
-like a BRD, but messes with the stats you don't use
-like a WAR's MND for a WHM's STR
Chocobomaster: Fight a chocobo like a DRG's Wyvern
-Chocobo Stampede!
Clown: No advantages, just the ability to cast Random spells and abilities
-turns -'s into +'3 effects "e.g.,Gloves: +2 - (CLN)Gloves: -2"
-All about Randomness
Mime: Mimics, Mix and match stats and abilities
-mix and match everything into the perfect character for a time limit

Note: I have Considered Time mage. But how many spells are there to effect time on any character. Just Haste, Slow, Bind, Gravity... Esscentially a RDM.

Soldier: Lvl 100 (restricted zones and battlefields only)
-Use 2hr Super-Strikes and sub-job 2hr
Savior: Lvl 100 (restricted zones and battlefields only)
-Use 2hr Divine-Benediction and sub-job 2hr

"New Weapons"
Great Hammers: Slow and inaccurate, but very powerful
Whips: A main weapon able to be used from long range
Books: Enhances certian spells and abilities
Nunchukus: Monk and Ninja weapon
Great Nunchukus: Monk, Ninja and Samurai weapon
Sickle: Smaller versions of a Scythe
Dual-Sword: Ninjas, Samurais and Warriors. Can switch to 2xswords

"Linkshell Moghouse"
Where LS members have an Inventory of items they can share.
Equipment that can be shared among the LS members excusively(rare/ex/ls).
Bigger than a Moghouse for more furniture.
A place a little more private than the Hostel. And a nice view.

"New Beastmen "
What could be better than Monkies?
Beastmen born and bred for the sole purpose of Warfare!
ex. Guerrilla Soldier, Guerrilla Seargent Major and Guerrilla General
Imagine Fighting the last boss, King-Kong with the same scale difference!
Yeah, like that!

"Avatars "
They already have two avatars(Fenrir and Diabolos) for the Dark Element, why not two for every element.
Fire - Phoenix
Water - Sylph
Wind - Valefore
Earth - Madiun
Thunder - Ixion
Ice - Umaro (Yeti in FFvi)
Light - Alexander
Maybe a special one if you have 3 Summoners in a party - The Magus Sisters

"Relics for Pup, Cor and Blu "
Corsair, maybe something that looks more like Johnny Depp than Kiera Knightly.

"Auction House"
At least... More selling space in the Auction House. 7 is not enough.

Thats all I got... fingers are sore now

This expansion will of course have new monsters. but judging from the, although nice yet short vid, it seems the time setting is the beginning of the Crystal War. All I want to see from it is the "high and mighty" 75's acctually do something other than sit in one city and so have to struggle like all the lower level players have to.

No new jobs are needed nor will they be put in. The last three jobs are not finished with yet. There is no need to add any jobs for another few years. Also no need to increase max level, 75 is perfectly fine.

streetwise, what did you mean with a level 100 soldier and savior. Where do you go now that your level is ever increased because its a special zone. As for the use of your subjob's 2hr, there are countless ways to abuse that. Manafont and Chainspell. Only cause I'm a mage.

That's Aldo's sister, she is in Selbina and has a son named Aldo. She is wondering where her actual brother is and it kind of annoys me cause like... I could escort her there to see him really fast. =/

I myself would like another job, simply because it sounds like it would be a fun new experience. I haven't played long but I already know there's the whole "If you don't play this way, you aren't 'efficient', and we won't want you as much" feeling, but with a new job there would be no predetermined "bests".

Also I liked this idea:

I like this idea, however I think the borrowing system should be more advanced.
Any item borrowed should get a stamp on it much like the "RARE" "EX" stamps, except it would be "LS", and that item would stay with the player for however long the LS leader put upon the item, before automatically returning to the "Linkshell Moghouse".

The item could even "break" like the linkpearl when the time limit wears out.

I like some of streetwise idea's. Like the avatar thing or linkshell moghouse. As far as i would like. Well i wanna be able to fight others i don't like to setup and event to battle each other and then no one but 3 or 4 people show up. and Since I'm a brd i would like a mazu song to work in dungeon's. SE needs to do more for the players then just add quests weapons and armor. They also need to make the death penalty less for lower lvls like 15-40 when a party wipes that's a lot of downtime and people around those lvl's are sick of waiting for party invites already and then have to wait some more.

I don't think Diabolos is Dark. It is Compression? (Dark and Earth).

There is also already Pheonix, which represents Liquifaction? (Fire and Light).

Both of these were introduced in the CoP Storyline with Bahamut (I suppose he would be classified as either all, or no element... Once you taste Mega-flare you will understand... Ouch...)

But will SE continue on that path, and will they actually allow Smn to summon Pheonix? Who knows... I hope so, pheonix could be great...

Automatons and wyverns dance, but they could certainly stand to make a player animation out of it.

I would include "Buster Sword" as a great sword. Also sephiroth's double blade sword as a nin sword. These swords are the best of all time and are sold in
stores in real life, why not include them in the game?
This is what is badly needed. New Armor for all levels. It's sad when your at level 30 for example and there is only 3 sets of armor for your job to choose
from. Things like "black robe" for blms need to be "black" and not tan. Get rid of lvl 20 armor with the huge shoulder pads, looks like football player uniforms. Serious Armor needs to be changed for all jobs and not just the color. Does chainmail armor even look like it should? I don't want to see more than 10 people walking around in the same armor, it gets dull fast.
Why is it Square Enix likes making female animal characters **** and not the males? No male mithras? Whats the deal? I'm not saying making the characters more **** than they are. People on the server talk way too much about *** because they are all deprived then they look at **** animals and get excited. Can anyone say beastiality?
The last thing I would change is the spell graphics. When I cast stone in everquest for example a giant boulder from the heavens would come smashing down and shake the screen. When I cast thunder I don't want to see little sparks of static electricity, I want to see the enemy convulsing as massive lightning is blinding everyone.

What does it mean you ask?... i dunno

It means what they said in Anaheim. they're still not done expanding yet, and one of them was quoted as saying they still have intentions of expanding to the far east, south, and west, at the least. WoTG won't likely be the last expansion we'll be seeing. that map is probably leaked concept material. Concept material ALWAYS gets leaked.

i originally found the quote somewhere on Wikipedia, but it's right here on alla, ffxi.allakhazam.com/forum.html?forum=10;mid=1195248558279052808;num=21;page=1

Maideen's Idea regarding LS moghouse is a decent one. However, without re-coding the game, no inventory section can have more than 80 slots. The idea of the Temp Item pocket is similar to what he's trying to point out. Specifically, Temp items are actually in a different section of your inventory, that is separate from your main inventory, yet accessible through the same list. All items in this section of the inventory automatically receive a "Temp" flag (the blue-gray flag at the top).

Seriously, though, making an inventory with more than 80 slots (Be it Main Inventory, Mog Safe, Furniture Storage, Temp Pocket, or Mog Locker) would require re-coding the game, and possibly restructuring of the serverside database to accommodate info for all of those items. And yes, I DO have a decent grasp of how the inventory system works. I know because i researched it myself. and wrote a wiki article about it: pxi.aeonlabs.net/index.php/InvItem

Just an FYI, they are adding this. Why? Because it was a question asked at Fan Festival 07 as to whether or not it would be possible.

SE's response was "we'll put it in if people want it"

The entire audience cheered, so they said they would add it. When? They didn't say. But they did listen to us Smiley: smile
