    Wow, I can't believe they are doing another expansion so soon after Treasures of Afghanistan... I mean, Salvage (from what I understand) is huge and is not a common event that is touched. Missions are still unfolding within the newest expansion, as well as, assaults (Nyle-sp?).

    I do have to say that I am excited about it though, nonetheless. It seems to be a new twist on the direction they were going with the expansions thus far. Only time will tell when they, as I assume, will release bit by bit of information about what is to come.

    I'm really surprised too. This June update isn't going to be the end of the TAU story, is it? Seems like there should be room for at least one more installment, and that starts to push close to the Winter 2007 release of this new expansion. Who knows, maybe the June update will have tons of story, enough to wrap up the storyline.

    Time for predictions! (Don't grimace, you knew they'd be coming. :p) I predict stronger story (like CoP, though I'm enjoying TAU too) and no new jobs. I'm certainly willing to be proven wrong on the jobs though. ^_^

    Hmm so how are they going to do this? A portal to the past? Maybe missions will have war sequences >.>b

    Winter 2007...seems kind of early, but if they are rolling out "quality" content on a regular basis who am I to complain?

    By then they might be rolling out new content to both expansions as a way to clear up congestion in any one city aye?

    It'd be nice if they'd work on current issues before rushing out another expansion so they can keep us busy while they abandon us to work on their "next" MMO. And back to the past? Is that all they could come up with? [​IMG] All I saw that was new were like 5 areas that appeared to be Dynamis-like versions of themselves with more buildings. So that's what we get? $30 for more dynamis? Great, make it free and rain currency and I'll go. Hell, maybe it will if it's in the past.

    What about the far east? What about the 4 other beastmen continents that have never been seen? There is at least 4 expansions worth of the current world left to be explored unless they plan on trying to cram it all into one. It just seems like they're really trying to hurry and wash thier hands of FFXI. Whatever MMO they've been working on better be worth it, because while I'm sure they have something great in the making, will it be worth throwing away everything I put into FFXI and everything left to start over?

    wow I think this is actually really freaking cool... get to see how everything was beforehand and shit is neat

    It'd be cool if they added Time Mage as a new job lol... it goes with the whole thing too ~~!!

    it does seem a little early though but... this'll push FF's life an extra year and a half I'm sure :p

    >.> Considering all we've seen is one short video with no enemies and no context, I think it's a little early to judge lol.

    I think it will come out later than Winter '07, my guess says it will get pushed back.

    IMO they've done a decent job fixing a lot of things recently though, especially old content.

    I would drop everything and level Time Mage if they made it.
    Ditto for Geomancer.

    Give us another Avatar, more Shantotto and NEW spells!!!

    Also, Geomancer or Time Mage would be freaking amazing.

    That is all.

    As bad as I wanted to bitch about a new expension when so many things would need to be fixed... I gotta say it looks pretty awesome. I just hope to God they're not making any level cap stuff like CoP, nor any event that require the same currency to participate in them all, nor anything impossible to do like Salvage, and please, NO MORE CHOCOBO, or make it easier (yellow chocobo only ftw?), faster (30 days to get a yellow bird...? another 30 days to see a rented chocobo run thrice as fast as you...?), funnier (no more 10min CS).

    Also hope they're fixing the economy, like entrance fees for Dynamis & Limbus (think I saw that being announced) a good server migration policy (I've seen they're making it a 90 days restriction for $25) and maybe make some "more oriented" servers for certain time zones that people will be able to choose (JP only will GTFO of here and be happy with their own kind, NA servers, EU servers etc.)
