DL: New FFXIV Battlesong

OMG...that looks incredible, plus the use of a First & Last name system....so awesome!

Quote :
Writer: WOW! Look at that screenshot! Thatís amazing! The adventurer has a last name?
Editor: What, THATíS the first thing that caught your eye?! This is a screenshot from the alpha version of the game, and it looks like a few things have changed since Germanyís Gamescom.
Writer: Thereís a minimap on the top right of the screen. The red dots are enemies, and I guess the green dots are NPCs or something. You can see pretty far using this map.
Editor: I wonder if the icon for Chiretsuzen (the ability charging to the right of the player) represents its elemental property.
Writer: Donít you think each individual ability will have its own icon?
Editor: The action menu shows a lot of icons, too. The chat window is also tabbed for general and battle, so it looks like you can switch between chat and battle messages.
Writer: The battle messages are really detailed!
Editor: It even lists where the attack are coming from, like ďattacked from behind.Ē
Writer: I want to see this in action!
Editor: If the battles look this good, I canít wait to have some of my own!

*This battle screen is from the game still under development and may change depending on user feedback during the beta.

Also just noticed that there is a mini-map in upper right corner...that will help out quite a bit!


Here is what that same enemy looks like in FFXI ~ Peiste
Pretty dern impressive...

the UI in FFXI made me hate every other UI in every other MMORPG out there, so I'm glad to see the one in XIV may do it justice, I will have to play it to know for sure though. The hotbar and chat tabs make me think they're trying to be like other MMOs a little bit, I hope not too much... It will be nice to seperate battle and chat though. One thing I know I won't like is the connection speeds being on the bottom left, that's my most important corner, I don't give two craps about that unless I'm lagging, go away! lol

I like that you can pick a last name, but I don't have any unique last names that I could use in mind D: I'll have to start thinking really hard!

You do know that the entire UI is movable and you can re-size it all too. Also I'd suggest looking into a sur name as SE has mentioned they'd like players to have the option, but to the point of how it is in Japan where you address a player by their last name and that's the unique part, but a first name will be common and can be used by multiple players.

Once that is announced, I'll open the option to allow members here to request having their last name shown, but I kinda hope it won't be choice and you have to choose a sur name!

yep i like the idea of having a surname

but at some point, surname are supposed to be like a Family Clan thing, so i wonder if it will be implemented in a different way

like if we formed a Organization, we could all have the same surname, so people would know that we have bond or something hahah

So ya know in the cinematics thread when I said that the epicness in the screens was going to cause the world to spontaneously combust? I thought I was commenting on this photo. Maybe I should call the fire department ahead of time... What's the number for 911?


Edit: Also, I'm seeing MP on that pugilist. Are you seeing MP on that pugilist? That pugilist looks like it has MP! o.o

Thanks for the link Twefoju. That one goes into a bit more depth on the classes than we had on the post the other day. And it looks like the lalafel in dark purple robes, which had the Fire and Cure weaponskills is actually called a Conjurer, rather than an illusionist :O Some nice info on combat too.

I just noticed that mini map in the corner too :o it blended in too well... and the TP does look to be insanely high o.O @72 and yet it looks like it can go up to 100 000, maybe it won't reset whenever you zone anymore (assuming there are zones, it may be seamless)

I like that the combat won't focus on one mob at a time anymore, the fun of RPG battles is strategy and taking down a ton of mobs, every mob shouldn't feel like an individual mini-boss, it makes the actual mini-bosses more speshial! :p being able to solo a party of dragons such as in the picture is going to be fun~

My guess is that physical abilities are going to cost mp. And hopefully, with a to bar that big, we won't still get about ten per attack lol
