An anticipated feature of this patch, revealed this summer, is the introduction of a new player class: the rogue. Rogues are experts with knives and daggers and are more than simple criminals. They often follow a Robin Hood-esque vigilante lifestyle of stealing from the rich and giving to the poor. A popular hangout for them is the buccaneer haven of Limsa Lominsa.
Ninjas are offshoots of the rogue class and highly trained warriors from far-East. They are able to manipulate energy from the land and air, as well as from living things. They can use this energy to use a wide array of deadly attacks.
Dungeons also feature prominently in Dreams OF Ice. In Dreams of Ice. There are three in total – Snowcloak, Sastasha, and The Sunken Temple of Qarn – all three of which take place in vastly different locales. Snowcloak, a new dungeon, is set in an area of near – impassible ice tunnels, Sastasha takes place deep in the sea caverns of the Sastasha Seagrot, and the Sunken Temple of Qarn is set in a creepy ancient ruined temple. These latter dungeons have been ungraded with “hard” difficulties.
The most progressive feature of Dreams of Ice is its inclusion of same-sex marriage – an addition which inspired a pride parade, known as Pixel Pride, back in July.
