News on Parch 2.4 "Dreams of Ice"

...And I have to say, the images are looking quite spiffy.  Yes indeed.

Without much ado, first off, thanks to several of you for the emails and yes I'm doing great.  I'm ridiculously healthy (managed to get back into tennis and rugby earlier this summer) and I've just been very busy with real life stuff.  But I do appreciate the messages and all of you who keep checking on here for news and stuff... thank you.

That said, lets dive striaght into it, shall we?   Gamewatch just released some new official images on Patch 2.4 and they look glorious.  Im also quite chuffed that they are making us Elezen look more and more regal with each passing patch.  We still have the mysterious Elezen lady...



...(and yes, Amelia, I do think you should still start a petition on the official forums for the Devs to implement that hairstyle for the Elezen females).   Possibility still holds that she may be related to Lord Haurchefant of House Fortemps (who is arguably my new favourite Elezen NPC character in the entire game... his Voice-Over is magnificent!!!)

Next up are the other images from Gamewatch that show a new Elezen male... could he be the son of the Holy See of Ishgard?  It must be because of the blue I see in his armour... but another option could be that he's Lousioix's son Fourchenault?  This is because the next two images below appear in tandem, as if they were take sequencially...




Then of course, the new Rogue class and Ninja job that many of us have been waiting for.  Even though Black Mage remains my favourite job class (currently working on my Nexus relic), I've become increasingly drawn to trying out a new DPS class... and Ninja fits that bill perfectly.




Speaking of which... that crispy image above of the four Ninjas posing shows how far the gaming industry has come since FF3.  Remember this...?

And personally, I hope the AF2 for Ninja will be something along these lines (Edge's armour from FFIV)...

By the way, when Yoshi showed some concept images of Ninja at TGS, it got me wondering... we still dont know for sure if their gear is Strength based or Dexterity based.  Im still in the camp that they are more Strength based though...





And I believe this is the PvP gear for Ninja...

By the way, looking at the new images from Gamewatch, I think I now want Fenrir as a mount.  Yep...


Finally, for the couple of people who asked me if I had anything on AF2, I've decided to post these up for you.  Not much is known at this point other than the fact that these gear might be released in 2.4 or more likely in the 3.0 expansion...













And that's it guys... I'll be posting up some of my in-game screenshots later, including a list of all the great (and absolutely crappy duds) that my retainers have brought back on their Ventures.  Until later, take care and be well everyone.
