No Levelling in Final Fantasy XIV MMORPG?

The latest edition of Famitsu Wave, a popular DVD based gaming magazine in Japan, has been released, and this months edition has some very interesting information regarding Square-Enix's newest MMORPG. Apparently, there will be no levelling system and no experience points. There will still be jobs that a player can do, and whether or not these jobs will grant added abilities is unconfirmed. Also it is mentioned that weapons will have a greater focus, so perhaps better weapons will equal better stats? Of course teaming up with friends for large scale battles is possible, but lone-rangers will still have plenty to do, as the regular battles will be one-on-one.

The game is slated for release on PS3 and PC sometime in 2010.

Awkward. Maybe you level your weapons instead?

Thats what Im thinking - maybe the Job system upgrades whatever weapon you're using... should be interesting to see how Sqeenix pulls it off though :-)

Could be like Monster Hunter where the items you get have skills that increase your attributes and give you special skills. That would make getting equipment really hard towards end-game like in Monster Hunter.

Uh oh dont tell me they are trying to pull another Final Fantasy 2 battle system here... and no I don't mean the SNES game that is actually called Final Fantasy 4. I mean Final Fantasy 2 for the NES. Would be very hackable if they made it exactly the same. In FF2 you leveled weapon skills depending on your weapon type and when you took damage or used magic at the end of the battle your HP/MP/Vitality would go up and sometimes your defense would too. That was about it so it was about leveling your weapon skill and getting better weapons/armor.
