Class job changes are coming alongside Endwalker.

Final Fantasy XIV producer and director Naoki Yoshida detailed some of the changes that are planned for each job at the release of Endwalker on November 23, 2021. The latest comes from the latest showing of the Letter from the Producer Live Broadcast that aired this past weekend.

This stream also talked about some of the new battle-related adjustments that are coming in addition to the all-new sage and reaper jobs. Some of the major highlights of the changes can be found below. If you would like to watch the entire broadcast, you can do so here. However, the trailer that is embedded below should be pretty sufficient to get the gist of what is changing.

  • Job Adjustments – Building upon changes implemented in Shadowbringers, Endwalker will bring new gameplay experiences for Disciples of War and Magic jobs. Updates include significant changes to Summoner job mechanics, the addition of single target buffs for all healer jobs, timing-based effects added to some tank defensive cooldowns, and much more.
  • Duty Reward Adjustments – Trials on both Normal and Extreme difficulties, which provide weapons as a reward, will now drop a weapon coffer alongside one of the available weapon rewards, allowing players to more easily obtain weapons of their choosing.
  • System-related Updates – Various quality of life updates such as enhanced HUD customization, improved ground targeting functionality, and UI updates will be added.
  • Adjustments to HQ Items – To help reduce overall inventory bloat and preventing unintended procurement of HQ items, certain items such as gathered items, enemy drops, and token exchange materials will no longer be available as high-quality items. Gatherer actions, quests, and achievements related to HQ items will undergo adjustments accordingly; however, crafted items and equipment will remain available as both normal- and high-quality.
  • Post-Release Patch Update – Due to the urgent need to address server congestion, the Data Center Travel system is scheduled for implementation after Patch 6.0
Square Enix also quickly mentions some upcoming in-game content coming prior to the launch of Endwalker. They also say that Final Fantasy XIV Letter from the Producer Live #67 will air on November 5.
