Storming the Dungeons
Recently, Yoshi-P and the team have been running gameplay tests on the new dungeons releasing in Stormblood. We tasked Project Manager M in Japan to report on the tests, and to grab some screenshots during the experience so we could share them on the Developers' Blog! Let's take a look!
Dungeon checks were once again conducted by the following members:
Paladin: Lead Designer Takeo Suzuki
Dragoon: Everyone's Favorite "Rare Item Hunter" Hiroshi Takai
Black Mage: Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida
White Mage: Project Manager M
As you know, Stormblood will introduce numerous battle system changes, such as the shift to role-based actions, and many revisions to existing actions. She mentioned that none of the other party members explained the minute details beforehand, so she instantly noticed these differences. However, she was able to adjust to the changes over the course of the session.
Project Manager M also commented that she wasn't able to grab screenshots of combat because she was so focused on battle this time! (I imagine she was busy healing their black mage tank...)
Yoshi-P was also testing out the extremely flashy new black magic spells! While he was pleased with the new spell, it was so flashy that he actually told them to make some adjustments in the end.
Aside from new black mage spells, I wanted to let you know that cleric stance is [Message deleted by some unseen force...] and esuna has [Message deleted by some unseen force...]!

Alright! I get it! It looks like something is preventing me from revealing information, so all I can say is that we're planning the next Letter from the Producer Letter LIVE for mid/late-May! "Please look forward to it!"
