Square Shows Off FF XIV Character Creator


We just got our hands on a slew of media from Square's upcoming Final Fantasy MMO. The bulk of the new releases show off clan and race diversity via the character creator system. We've also got a handful of screens from the stellar looking opening cinematic.

If you've been keeping up on Final Fantasy XIV details, have you already decided which character type you plan on playing?












Final Fantasy XIV classes detailed

Final Fantasy XIV may be a while off, but the official website was recently updated to show off class details for the Gladiator and Pugilist. Other updates include a first look at the in-game weapons used by both classes.

Pugilists utilize light armor and prefer hand-to-hand combat. They’ll also get their hands on classic Final Fantasy weapons like cesti. The Gladiators are sort of the opposite of Pugilists as they sport heavy army and carry heavy swords. They also wield throwing knives and a defensive and offensive shield.


The clans of Final Fantasy XIV detailed

The official website for Square Enix’s forthcoming Final Fantasy XIV has been updated, revealing more information about the clans in each race. The five races each have a pair of clans to choose, each with different lore that is sure to add quite a bit of depth to the game.

The Elezen

Wildwood Elezen – Possessing a keen sense of sight, the Wildwood clan are expert archers. After hundreds of years living in the forests, they have emerged to urban centers or to live more nomadic lives on the plains.

Duskwight Elezen – The Duskwight clan have the ability of detecting the faintest sounds, making them a perfect build for hand-to-hand combat. They are a bit like scavengers, robbing and pillaging to survive.


The Lalafell

Plainsfolk – The Plainsfolk live in thatched huts, with intricate passageways underground. Their long ears allow them to hear the faintest sounds.

Dunesfolk – With distinct eyes covered by a protective layer, a response to the glaring sunlight of their home region, the Dunesfolk live on structures stuck to backs of large beasts of burden.

The Hyur

Midland – The Midland are the larger of the two Hyur clans, establishing themselves through every city in the realm. They are some of the most educated members of the game.

Highlanders – Living mostly in mountainous regions of Eorzea, the Highlanders are bigger than their Midland counterparts. They are quite rare and work as mercenaries.


The Roegadyn

Sea Wolves – Besides sounding like a new species of animal you’d see at a zoo, the Sea Wolves work as sailors or naval mercenaries. Their history consists of living on islands on the north seas and working as fishermen.

Hellsguard – The Hellsguard are all about the volcanic region they inhabit – both in body and mind. They believe the mountains of flames are doorways to the underworld, making them act as gatekeepers.

The Miqo’te

Seekers of the Sun – The Seekers of the Sun have a preference for the light of day. They have a devout reverence for Azeyma the Warden, goddess of the sun.

Keepers of the Moon – These are the more nocturnal of the Miqo’te clans. They worship the goddess of the moon, Menphina the Lover.
