During today’s Square Enix E3 2014 live stream, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn producer Naoki Yoshida gave fans their first taste of the new class and job for the popular MMORPG, Rogues and Ninja, coming in game patch 2.4. Faster in the field, more resistant to falling damage, the Rogue profession is, understandably, a stealth class, able to affix poisons to his or her dual weapons to apply various effects to their enemies.
The Ninja job takes these traits and adds ninja magic, using combinations of hand gestures to generate ninjitsu moves. It will be up to the player what combination they choose, and up to the game whether they succeed or fail.
Rogue and Ninja are focused on damage — fans looking for a new tank or healer will have to wait for the game’s first major expansion.
