I got myself information about new information be exposed during the 2 remaining fanfests. Here is it

* Developers very happy regarding the new story, it is as good or even better than Heavensward

* No new races.

* MSQ will have 10 dungeons and 2 endgame regular dungeons

* 4 trials Anima, Minotaur Brothers, Shisa(original) Zenos Yae Galvus(Yojimbo)

* 4 raid boss battles 4 elemental fiends fiends(inspired by the 4 fiends of FF IV) they can be fought on any order. and will have 2 difficulty levels

* 1 8 person raid dungeon 2 difficulty levels easy being easy to clear, and hard similar to savage raids

* Jump potions ARE coming but team is trying to make a way for them to unlock access to Expansion content so players can start playing on Stormblood areas but in a way MSQs are NOT marked as completed so new players can go back and play the story of ARR and Hwavensward if they like.

*special mount, and minions, and materia will be awarded to people who do not use a jump potion.

*base GCD reduced to 2 seconds

*Daily roulette will be condensed into ARR roulette, Heavensward roulette. Stormblood roulette and Expert Roulette(expert roulette can include any dungeon from 2.0 to current dungeons) raid roulette(all 24 man raids, normal dificulty fiends,Alexander normal, new 8 normal player dungeon) and Finally Pro Roulette( Bahamut Coils, All Extreme trials, Alexander Savage, 4 fiends savage and new 8 man dungeon on savage dificulty)

*Samurai will be an offensive tank, lower Hp than warrior but much better self heal. tetsubojutsul school(Tank Stance) uses Kanabo, provides life steal from damage done while also generating more aggro Kenjutsu School(DPS Stance) uses katana no life steal provided but increases attack speed and reduces cooldowns by 30% . Samurai can only be on one of the 2 stances at once. it cannot activate both at the same time or not be on any either. Katana and Kanabo drop together but a Samurai can mix Katanas and kanabos fom different sets. Samurai will have an exclusive Fox mount

Classes:

Red mage will be a Magic Melee DPS, Rapier swordwill be used as a weapon. some abilities will have casting time. will also have a few healing abilities and will be allowed to revive party members. Conceptually it is a mix of red mage and rune fencer from previous games.

Dancer will be a Healer. weapon will be a flail/whip The focus is o make it fit the same niche as the scholar in being an 'offthealer'. Dances will heal and buff the party. Dance would have to be closer than casters to damage enemies due to using a melee weapon, however the whip has a very long range so the dancer can be on a safe distance. Dancer will be more tanky than other healers to compensate and fit the concept of a physically fit dancer

*Team is looking to make the 3 new jobs feel as different as they can compared to previous jobs

Red mage will be officially confirmed in the Tokyo Fanfest. yoshiP will hint Samurai using a Himura Kenshin Tshirt Dancer will be confirmed until later.

*Yoshi P will move to a producer role after Stormblood is released. He will move to direct 'another very large project' at SquarEnix

Sound too good to be true...I'll call it fake but Someone leaked FF XV info 6 months before release so if this is true SE should really monitor what their employees are doing.
METAL GEAR SOLID 4 and SUPER SMASH BROSS BRAWL!!! 2007 games of the year!!!!
If you believe in Goku and are 100% proud, put this in your sig.

All of this sounds pretty plausible... even though the class info could've been easily guessed as most have as far back as a year.
Even still I'd like to know where you got his info as well.

I believe it. After all my dog works at Nintendo.

...

In all honesty though, none of this is way out there. If it's just speculation, it kinda lines up with what I'd expect from the dev team, more or less.

Or maybe that's just me accepting this due to"fox mount" being a possible thing.

Unless it's a "calculated" leak (to make hype), but yeah...it does sound too good to be true.
Still, we shall see soon enough.

Not how it will work.

1. Story Skip Potion

This is a potion that will allow you to complete the progress of the main story, and it’s a shortcut through the main scenario.

...

To compare this to a television series, season one is A Realm Reborn, season two is Heavensward, and the newest expansion Stormblood will be season 3. With this potion, you'll be watching the memoirs of season 1 and 2 from an inn, and then actually watching season 3. Naturally you will have to actually watch the latest season, so the short cut will only allow you to skip through to the end of the previous season.

That is how the potion works on Chinese servers. That is why I posted that the team is thinking about a way for the potion to unlock content up to 4.0 instead of marking quests as completed when the potions are released in other religions. They are looking for a happy medium.

I'm a bit skeptical but it seems pretty legit.

I'd be quite happy with an 8 man raid dungeon, this was something I was hoping SE would do and if it's true I hope we get one with every other patch
