[spoil]As transcribed by Corwin on the ahem forums

Reinheartv: soken & mocchi's seiza bgm (when they need to kneel down before getting scolded)

» not saying what it's fighting

» doesn't sound like a music who chases kneesocks

Reinheartv: also this isn't last tboss theme

Reinheartv: going to start seasonal event with bombard

» for those that want rain deer suit please raise hand

» those who want hildi... why? hildi...

» y: just take him

Reinheartv: Q: Is YoshiP someone to be respected - Q to Foxclon A: Yes! He answers questions instantly so he's easy to work with

Reinheartv: Fat Chocobo coming in patch

» Y; wants to do it

Reinheartv: Didn't make the bathtub, bath suit yet

» lol

More from Rein: (Letter live part 3)

Reinheartv: we might get beta 3 info tonight

» during HIroyuki & Yoship talk

Reinheartv: only if Hiroyuki asks w

Reinheartv: pretty sure he's gonna ask w

Reinheartv: reason why YoshiP don't want to say it yet

» if he says it too early during event, people already got the info they need and going to walk away from broadcast/event

» so he wants to keep as much people/rating for their booth up..w

Reinheartv: Nico event has something to do with number of comments they receive in the video's also

Reinheartv: so they need to try and get as much

Reinheartv: last night they were aiming for 140,000 comments in 2 days but ended up getting close to 150,000 comments yesterday alone i think

Reinheartv: comments asking for Mizuta to make BGM

» soken comes up to side of stage

» and tells Foxclon there is 2-3 probably at time of launch

» YoshiP didn't check them yet so it has to go through him

Reinheartv: Q: Want large shield covering whole players height

» just don't want graphic glitches where shield graphic going through character

» Y: I think it was something added through patch

» Q: cross fire will be addressed by launch

» not Q, that's Y looking at comments running on screen

Reinheartv: btw... I'm not translating what's on the live , going back to P letter 3 w

Reinheartv: Q: What's going to happen to weather forecast Y: they are already working on it

Reinheartv: Q: Would new CEO come out in P.Letter like Wada? A: While eating gave him lots of wine, and asked if we can have Mr. Headshot in p.letter

» and he smiled so should be good

Reinheartv: Q: Will there be time-attack content? Y: Want to try and get that out (away) since that will cause issues with content finder, people blaming each other etc

Reinheartv: instead of TA he wants to do ranking for Free Company, and those who helped most gets points,etc

Reinheartv: TA still might be possible in future, he just saying in general he doesn't want it in *

Reinheartv: Q: will primal battle change?" Y: base is same, but the new is different right?

» Soken is stopping me, that's rare

Reinheartv: Primal battle BGM**

Reinheartv: Soken made 110 music for XIV, doesn't say if that includes small tunes/jingles or just BGM type

Reinheartv: Q: Materia related - would placing materia change the item level? Only thing that can go over that is content item, when new contents get added, new items will be added so you'll fill up the new gap with materia gear, but content gear will always be on top

Reinheartv: --- Say current best is darklight, when they add... say crystal gear, there will be new crafted items that can be stronger than darklight with materia but never over the crystal gear

Reinheartv: (my example, not by yoshi, but that's what he's mentioning)

Reinheartv: if last content gear is really hard to get, then materia gear is teh next best so yeah

Reinheartv: Q: Any other characters you can use other than chocobo for buddy system? Y: We will add using the same system, but people in FF is attached to Chocobo and Magitek Armor so we'll so more chocobo types. Foxclon: You just mentioned it... Chocobo and Magitek Armor Y: Well many wanted Magitek in content so yeah... it's gonna be boring if you can just ride it. Also at end of era trailer they were blasting lazers

  • When does Phase 3 start? > That's still a secret
  • Will players be able to use guns? > We're considering it
  • Will we be able to listen to the works of Naoshi Mizuta? (FFXI composer, wiki link) > Perhaps 2 or 3 at launch
  • Can we have huge shields? > It won't be at launch but we're planning on implementing them post-launch
  • Yoshi-P is younger than Yousuke Saitou (Producer of DQ10, JP wiki link)
  • Weather Reports? > Difficult to implement by launch
  • Will we get to see/meet the new SE President in the new Live Letter? > Probably sometime after the next one

  • If we equip Materias to weapons will we be able to increase its item level? (Stan's notes: I'm assuming the question here is asking if it can be comparable to stuff attainable in dungeons) > No. Materia is intended to fill in the blanks in-between levels/content
  • Monks can keep on chaining combos to increase DPS. However, constant chaining will come with its sets of risks
  • We're thinking of basing the names of the servers on FF monsters. Probably not enough if we base them on items
  • We will be adding different buddies/companions other than Chocobos eventually. Magitek Armor will be one of them
  • Datacenters/servers will not be separated by language, but by region
  • New BGM (can listen here in niconico, about 20:13 in). Tentative Title: Decisive Battle

  • Do you respect Yoshi-P as a superior? > Morbol: Yes, I do
  • There will be no PK
  • We'll be implementing Level Sync in Phase 3. No need to change gears for it too, as stats will auto-adjust accordingly. But will be weaker compared to the optimal gears at the correct level
  • Fat Chocobo will be implemented in a future patch
  • Whatever happened to Battle Regimen? > It became the Limit Break system
  • Any plans for an official Guidebook? > We will release a Starter Book
  • Any other references to older Final Fantasies you have planned? > Some through songs, others in stuff we've already mentioned

  • Will there be 'talking' Bosses, like Nael? > Yes

  • How well does the touch panel feature of Win8 work with ARR? > Can perform just as well as I've shown in the last Live Letter
  • When will we get to use the apps for Smartphones? > Beta Test Phase 4 or at launch
  • How's Hiroshi Minagawa doing? (person in charge of ARR UI, wiki link) > Great! He completely revamped the UI for Phase 3. The stuff you see now will no longer be there
  • Yoshi-P respects Minagawa so much he's one of the reasons Yoshi-P joined the industry
  • So when does Phase 3 start already? > Let's hope Hiroyuki (co-founder of Niconico, will later interview Yoshi-P) can pry the answers off me
  • Plans on the Hair Salon? > In a patch after launch. Can change hairstyles and hair color

  • Can we apply specific requests to the content finder? > Not in the beginning
  • Undecided if we'll implement/release Cutter's Cry in Beta Phase 4
  • Will wipe Characters in Beta Phase 3
  • Don't really like Kyabetsu Tarou... (a type of snack in Japan, picture link)
  • Will you implement gear like the Zodiac Subligars in FF11? > Since Subligars are popular, we'll consider it
  • Will we be able to read up on detailed lore and such as requested in the forums? > We definitely want to implement something like that
  • Yoshi-P's recommend job is Black Mage. Is actually one of his favorites.
  • Can probably get a glimpse of Arcanist in E3
  • Yoshi-P is a Nuker
  • Yoshi-P's favorite Karaage-kun flavor is Cheese (type of snack in Japan, picture link)

*squees like a child*


Gimmeh! :3


A very interesting read at that. Some stuff was covered in there that wasn't covered in the last Live Letter. I'm getting more and more excited for this game as time progresses and more content is leaked to us!

Regional servers? Does that mean I'll be forced into an European server because I'm in Europe? >_< Really hope I'm getting it wrong.


I'm pretty sure much earlier on YoshiP says we will be able to choose which server we want to be on, regardless of region. I believe it's just an attempt of trying to get people together who keep the same play-times, not to force people together.

Okay^^; That's a great relief to me. I'm too fond to american roleplayers to start anew with another community.

Ah, you're in the same boat as me Blue. >u>;;

I was super worried about the new servers, and the possibility that they'd be doing regional segregation.

But as Deir said the plan seems to be to have servers open to everyone. It's just that they're going to have servers based in various places. So your ping will be better if you pick a EU server, but it should otherwise be a free choice...


Also I'd like to think splitting people by region, and sundering any connections made while the servers were multiregion in 1.x should stand out as an all round poopy idea.
