Final Fantasy XIV: Dawntrail Expansion to Raise Level Cap to 100; Introducing Two New Jobs

During the reveal presentation for Final Fantasy XIV: Dawntrail, producer Naoki Yoshida revealed that the expansion will raise the game’s level cap from 90 to 100, notably breaking the series tradition of a level cap of 99.

While this is to be expected as the game has been increasing the cap by ten levels in each major expansion, it is slightly more notable in this instance, as players had been debating online whether they would keep with the series tradition of 99 or the XIV tradition of the cap being a multiple of 10.

It was also announced that two new jobs would debut in Dawntrail, and while they were not explicitly revealed, they will both be “DPS” role jobs, one melee and one ranged magic.

Yoshida frequently teases upcoming content through his choice of wardrobe in live presentations, and after this announcement, he removed his button-down shirt to deliberately let the audience see that he was wearing a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem shirt, from the upcoming film.

He invited the attendees to speculate on what that could indicate, but this is more opaque than it appears, given that the Ninja job has been present since A Realm Reborn.
