    Race Change after 15 years?

    Considering the servers will probably never merge and subscriptions are dying out by the day, wouldn't it be a good idea to add a race change function for $$$? Every other MMO does it..... I don't see why at this point its not an option or never will be, some of us are bored of our characters and want a change.

    Its not about people being attached to their characters anymore considering half of the characters are bots ran off scripts...

    Would make SE more money and alot of players very happy, because c'mon... we all know Mog Wardrobe 3 and 4 were results of a financial crisis. This would be a good idea, I'm sure there is supporters and i'm sure there is non-supporters but this is kind of an opinionated post but.... I hope it has more support then non-support

    EDIT: We want a change without making a new character and spending a year to get it near where our mains are.

    In percentage terms, and demand. What % of the player base would even use/pay for this feature? 5%? I don't think it's viable at this stage.

    Not to mention that the devs have frequently cited technical obstacles that prevent it from being implemented...

    In FF14, there's a potion called Fantasia that let's player change their looks as many times as they like. Potion itself however, must be purchased with real money via mog shop, for like $1 maybe.

    Turns out during my tenure there, there's always some players who liked to change alot, but that's only because the allowed combination are way more varies than what FF11 has. While I never understood the idea behind this as I still hold fantasia I got for free from certain campaigns, this potion seems became quite popular, even nowadays.

    I was actually going to ask about this and start a post. I understand there are 'technical difficulties,' but that's code for 'too much of a pain/cost/benefit isn't justified.' If there is player demand, will there be consideration on a possible implementation? What would the devs need to see in order to be able to actually move forward on this?

    I think it would be a cool feature to have, one that would generate additional revenue. The game is still alive and kicking; why not?

    They flat out said it's not going to happen recently. It's one of those "they'd have to rebuild the entire game" type things that go beyond just being difficult, and into the realm of simply impossible.
