With the beta testing in full swing and the release date just around the corner, you might think that Final Fantasy XIV
fans would have all the information that they need. Of course, anyone highly anticipating the game would be quick to point out the exact opposite, eagerly looking for any more details about the game, especially with so much left to know about the various Disciplines. A recent article on Famitsu
(translated by the helpful team at FFXIVCore
) sheds new light on some of the less flashy disciplines
-- not those of War or Magic, but the Hand and the Land, gathering and crafting.
The new article gives more details on Harvesters (which may be dubbed Botanists in the official translation), Goldsmiths, Armourers (possibly due to lose the British spelling), Woodworkers, and Fishermen. Each class has a small writeup explaining their tasks and talents, such as the rapport that Harvesters enjoy with plants or the equipment-enhancing talents of Goldsmiths. Take a look at the article
for a clearer picture of the plethora of non-combat activities that come along with Final Fantasy XIV
-- even if many of the noncombatants will be well served by having a few combat-ready escorts.
