Sage and Reaper
Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker is approaching fast even with the delay. The 4th expansion for the game will bring a new race, higher level cap, vast areas to explore for the first time, and two new jobs to enlist in. Each new job will bring a new arsenal of abilities, a deep storyline, and unique playstyle to tackle the game’s hardest content with. For the players who are excited to try the new jobs out here is what we know so far.
One of the new jobs coming to Final Fantasy 14 in the Endwalkers expansion is Sage. The Sage is built around the use of healing abilities and utilizing barriers to increase your allies’ defenses. The official role for this job is Healer and that’s the role this job will play in Duty Finder Raids. The job starts in the bustling port city of Limsa Lominsa at level 70.
Players have remarked that the job feels like a split between Scholar and Dancer, positioned as a healer with slightly higher damage capability. If this sounds like it is up your alley, be sure to head down to Rhalgr’s Reach before the expansion is released to grab Augmented Scaevan healing gear. This will allow the players to effortlessly begin duty finding with the new healing job as the starter coffer will not suffice. Augmented Scaevan gear is purchased from Enna using Allagan Tomestones of Poetics.
The other new job is Reaper which will be playing the role of a melee DPS. This job is much darker in theme than the Sage and wields a two handed scythe to overcome its enemies. Along with its primary weapon, the Reaper class summons an avatar from the Void to assist in battle creating powerful combos. This job introduces a “Soul Gauge” that can influence the outcome of battle if used correctly.
Similar to Sage, players will have to be level 70 to unlock this job. The job’s main storyline begins in the wealthy city-state of Ul’day located in southern Aldernard. To prepare prior to the expansion, players can buy a set of Maiming Gear in Rhalgr’s Reach from Enna.
Excited for FFXIV: Endwalker?
Both classes look like fantastic additions to the game, they will be able to fulfill their niche and won’t disappoint. Taking the time to prepare before the expansion will allow players to make the most of the newest jobs from the first day they hop on. Even if it was too late to collect all the required Allagan Tomestones of Poetics, players can supplement their gear with the tradable and craftable Rakshasa gear which is also level 70. Be sure to have completed all the Main Story Quests to be up to date with the story and progression to continue onto the new story line introduced last this month.
