    FFXIV 2.0 and Weapons?

    First I'd like to apologize if this topic was mentioned before and I didn't notice it. I just didn't find anyone talking mainly about this and I think it's very important to discuss right now. I want to know about the future of weapons in 2.0..

    Since FFXIV was first announced, the one thing we all knew about the game is that "A big variety of weapons will be something special and unique in the game."

    And after seeing the logo, we all thought we'd see all kinds of new and old weapons, brought from all FF games, or even all SE games.



    But sadly we only have 4 melee weapons right now (and a dying fifth which no one uses.)

    So I'd like to know if we will be able to have new types of weapons in 2.0, weapons we loved in all Final Fantasy games / SE games.
    • Hammers
    • Great Swords
    • Gunblades
    • Katanas
    • Double-edged
    • Scythes
    • Guns

    Dual-wielding.
    • 2 Swords
    • 2 Daggers
    • 2 Guns
    • A sword and a gun in each arm

    For Mages:
    • Maces
    • Books

    Yeah I know it's not simple to just add these weapons, it requires new actions, and (in the long-term) new jobs. So I'd like to know everyone's thoughts on this matter.

    Guns please no, the weapons I'd like to see are:

    Daggers (real ones, not super short swords that a GLD uses)
    Katana's
    Great Katana's
    Scythes
    Great Sword

    Nun chucks aren't a real weapon..
    On another hand, Gunblades won't come unless we get to the point in the story where we start to use the Empires technology against them. Maybe a special muskateer weapon.

    Katana is Samurai, and Wakizashi thingamabobs for Ninja.
    Scythe is Dark Knight of course
    Great swords we will probably see in the next job connected to Marauder
    I assume Daggers will make a comeback with Thief
    Gun is obviously Muskateer

    This post needs more weapons that are less likely to already be in planning.

    Cool thread I'd love to see these weapons implemented along with whips too (like Rydia from FF4) and duel katanas!

    I'd like to see staff as a viable alternative for MNK, and not in that lame way you could use them in FFXI. Like martial arts staff fighting.

    But it would be nice to see more weapon types/styles available. However in that regard the new lieutenant weapons are all rather interesting.

    I'm the one your mother warned you about.
