By Ashley Woodcock, 4 months ago
15,000 attendees of the recent Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival in Tokyo, Japan, witnessed the reveal of some exciting details for the "Shadowbringers" expansion which is soon making its way to Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. The highly anticipated and third expansion for the game will see players journey to the First World and the realm of Norvrandt, marking the first time in which Warriors of Light will travel to different dimension. The job here will be to become Warriors of Darkness and restore night in order to save the world from the Flood of Light's deadly apocalypse.

During the event, Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida revealed several key features:

New Job – Dancer: Dancer joins gunbreaker as one of the new jobs in Shadowbringers. This ranged attacker not only unleashes powerful attacks using throwing weapons, but also performs dances to execute abilities and provide beneficial effects to their party. A first look at the dancer is available here:
