Very flexible and easy to change your lifestyle and jobs on the go.
If you change your weapon, you are basically changing jobs,FFXIV Gil and you can do this anywhere and almost at any time.
Getting invited to a group which has too many of your current class? No problem, switch to a healer or whatever class they lack numbers in. After the adventure is over, switch back to your previous class, gardener for instance.
Weapons and your equipment has their own "levels". You need to coordinate your equipment to reach whatever goal and power you're aiming at.
In FFXIV Gil there's a larger focus on the level of your item you're using, instead of your own levels and skills.
You're able to switch from warrior to a healer on your own, when solo playing - soloing becomes a whole lot more fun and easier
Changing your "job" is as simple as switching your weapon, you can relax and not feel a lot of stress
The "holy trinity" type of jobs have been avoided, the jobs of Final Fantasy XIV Gil are more neutralSquare Soft promises a lot of freedom in Eorzea. Almost unrestricted.
The core system of Final Fantasy XIV Gil will be the so-called "Armory System" (might be renamed later). It's focused on your character's equipment. In order to change a play style, you change your equipment parts. Something which is done in real-time.
