    Clearly the pictomancer job quests will involve fighting against a host of robots copying and grinding up art into knockoffs that are putting artists out of jobs.

    I'll play Pictomancer, but only ever hang out at the cafe in Sharlayan and talk to random people about how I'm an artist.

    I wonder if Solution 9's city would be called Zanarkand or Midgard.

    I have obsessively gone through a lot of stuff on S9.

    The city appears to not but underground as I suspected, but does seem to be domed in some manner.
    The city is located in Canada. That is to say, the northern side of the north continent. Xak Tural.
    They use the proto-alphabet. That's the one used by the Ancients, Moon Bunnies, the Twelve and presumably (by it's very nature) was the script used by the earliest of civilizations on Etheirys.
    Judging by the billboards with catgirls, female hyur and highlander/Roe(?) the people likely aren't, at least physically, Ancients and are made up of the races of Etheirys (at least some of the races).

    I imagine the femhroth will be the same height as femroe, as it would make sense for their base model/skeleton to be based on them the same way male Hrothgare based on manroe. But I'm definitely going to switch. I love my lady Viera to death but I've been looking to play a lady lion for awhile.

    Hrothgals mostly just make me sad again that we never got the Bowsette Femras that we saw in the concept art.

    No doubt making them the way they are was the correct decision for the time but I still can't help think of the soup that got away.

    Yeah if they pull an au ra, I'm gonna be pissed. I want my lion ladies to be big

    I mean, we've seen them. even if we dont have a lot of frame of reference for their size but they looked about the proportions of a femroe

    I mean, as someone who plays a max-height Femroe, I'm definitely going to be happy to have someone around my height so I'm not constantly surrounded by THE SMALLS.

    Seriously, it feels weird sometimes. Feels like I have to walk on eggshells so I don't accidentally punt a lala.

    Grinding Light for the ARR relic, and I just realized that running the second coil of Bahamut gives as much light as a run of Aurum Vale, in half the time as a healer....

    Oh, this is so much better...

    Edit: Upon further reasearch, I have discovered that there's a rotating cycle of bonus light, which I just got lucky to get. Doesn't matter, anything is better than AV

    Max-height femroe is life. If miqo'te aren't waist-height, what are we even doing?

    I wonder if Solution 9's city would be called Zanarkand or Midgard.

    Or Esthar
    Or given the game the name is referencing, maybe Bran Bal?

    I think the latter is the most likely intention, though it doesn't match visually.

    Though, there might be a reason they chose Eden for the Ultimate? But I think that they've mostly finished their VIII stuff.

    Given there's a seemingly almost guaranteed IX remake to be announced (that and Tactics, iirc, are the only two games remaining left to be revealed from that nvidia leak ages ago), and the name of the place being specifically referencing a IX ability, and YoshiP made a point to tell players to "think about why" it has that name.

    My, likely completely wrong, guess:
    An Ascian named Garland came up with a plan to try to avert the Last Days, apart from Zodiark/Hydaelyn, and went "underground". They've kept radio silence from everyone and everything and have had over ten thousand years to advance. Maybe some super ultra magic spell kept them from splintering with the rest of the Ascian's and the source, but maybe not, maybe they still did, hence the races, but stayed 'in house'.

    the tactics remake is deaaaaaad, if that leak was even real, it's been too long with no sign of it
    they probably had it in their forecasts and then it fell through

    Is there any information available regarding the type of armor the new limited class, Beastmaster, will use? Maiming, striking, scouting, aiming, etc.? I'd like to start planning glams and gathering armor sets for leveling up.

    No, since it isn't coming out in the launch of the expansion that information will come later

    They said they haven't yet even decided if it'll have some sort of animal collecting aspect to it, so I personally wouldn't expect Beastmaster to hit until 7.4 at earliest.

    The most amusing option that I can think of would be to have it fight using a selection of your unlocked minions. Or maybe just a third of them, there has to be some room left for Puppetmasters.

    Beast Masters will join regular groups, but if they find a monster they need, they'll jump off-screen, leave the party and remain offline for a few hours. They'll come back with a new attack unlocked.

    Also they will be unable to type more than three words at a time in chat.

    Stay tuned for my plans for that other FFVI favorite Umaro.

    Obviously the Beast Mater story will involve you receiving your first Beast from some sort of Beast Pedagogue. Another NPC will receive a Beast from the same Pedagogue and will act as your foil. You'll then be instructed to go to each of the eight Hippodromes around Eorzea and battle the Hippodrome Master and collect their Seal. Once all eight Seals are collected you can then challenge the Beast Master Premier.

    I think 14 already has its minion pokemon equivalent, Lords of Verminion, the minion (RTS?) minigame in the gold saucer

    which I think is vaguely based on a collectible card arcade game square enix made in japan called lords of vermillion? not sure

    Lord of Verminion is actually one of the better weekly MGP challenges too.

    Unfortunately, it's not exactly popular, because I do think it's a decent minigame.

    the only time i ever heard a bad word about pet battling was when they incorporated it heavily into the open world environments of both Nazjatar and Mechagon in BFA patch 8.2 and then made Nazjatar relatively mandatory for raid performance, so a lot of people who were happily ignoring pet battles up to that point had to suddenly engage with it

    That said, it was probably a net positive cos I knew quite a few people who continued to pet battle past that point
