Matsuda, overruling Yoshida’s decision to not name a new job, introduced a video announcing that the Blue Mage is coming to the game, but not in Shadowbringers. The Blue Mage job will be introduced in the game’s 4.5 update, far in advance. The Blue Mage will be a limited job, not connected to any other class. Players will learn monster actions through combat. When 4.5 launches, the Blue Mage will have a level cap of 50. Once Shadowbringers comes out, new patches will raise the Blue Mage’s level cap. The current cap for other jobs is 70, which is being increased to 80 in the expansion.
Other new features include nine new dungeons and a new series of end game raids. Crafters and gatherers will have the opportunity to come together and use their skills to rebuild the Holy See of Ishgard.
A feature akin to Final Fantasy XI’s Trust system will be added in Shadowbringers, allowing non-player character heroes to accompany players through dungeons. This will allow players to play through the story scenario of the expansion completely solo.”
