And Here Comes Patch 1.21... Thank you Yoshi-P!

Yes indeed great folks, SE gave us a minor pleasant surprise by moving up the date for the 1.21 patch... which turns out to be today rather than the initially scheduled date of March 9th.  Matter of fact, it should be updating onto the servers as we speak and we should be able to start downloading within the next few hours.  All the relevant notes and details can be found on the FFXIV Lodestone

This patch brings to us the long awaited addition of the advanced job classes... and I'm totally psyched to try my hands at getting the Dragoon exclusive gear... remember the below concept image from last year?

Yep... and it will look so spiffily wicked on my Elezen.  In fact, the first Dragoon images that emerged from SE were with an Elezen... we'd recognize those ears anywhere, yes?

And of course, the developers have added the Barding Chocobo Armour system which can apparently be purchased directly from the Grand Company headquarters (players have to be ranked Sergeant Third Class or higher), and the barding can be equipped at any chocobo stable.

By the way, judging from the image below, I'd wager that the "full plate suit of Maelstrom-issue chocobo armor" may be the one on the far right... my beloved Chocobo (named Pharaoh) should be mightly pleased ehh?

I shall be right back later on today to update more stuff regarding the patch... I have an Urban Design class this evening and need to print out my proposal studies.... be well everyone and enjoy the new items!

***New Update***
Sever Applications on all servers are now open as at 2.25am Central United States timezone... here's a screenie as proof.  Finally got mine in and I urge all you wonderful people who haven't been able to get in to do so as swiftly as possible.  Good luck!
