Yoshi-P Explains Why Summoners Won’t Have DoTs in FFXIV Endwalker


Final Fantasy XIV Producer Yoshida Naoki, or Yoshi-P, reveals in a brand new interview why the Summoner modifications for Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker included eradicating DoTs. DoTs (harm over time) have been an integral a part of the Summoner since its inception inside FFXIV. However, the interview mentions that the removing of DoTs for the Summoner in FFXIV Endwalker was as a result of sheer quantity of Job Actions. [Thanks, ryokutya2089!]

That mentioned, Yoshi-P is just talking in regards to the varied levels of re-tooling the Summoner Job Class to make it work in FFXIV Endwalker. Please preserve in thoughts the translations are an excerpt from an upcoming subject of Famitsu, and will not be full.

Yoshi-P had this to say in regards to the Summoner, and the conceptualization of this main change to the Job Class.

The Job Actions of the Summoner had reached its limits. It was barely potential so as to add new Job Actions, so we determined to do an enormous overhaul with the discharge of 6.0.. The first idea of this overhaul was to take away all DoTs.

In September 2021, throughout a Letter From the Producer Live the event group defined that Summoner would see important modifications in Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker. This included the reveal that DoTs can be eliminated in favor of pet-focused actions.

Final Fantasy XIV is accessible for the PS4, PS5, and PC. Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker will launch on December 7, 2021. Early entry will start on December 3, 2021.
