Final Fantasy 14 Dawntrail: New Jobs Revealed
Square Enix

Square Enix has revealed that the next expansion heading to Final Fantasy 14 is titled Dawntrail. This will be the MMORPG's fifth major expansion, following on from Endwalker, and has the Warrior of Light once again work alongside Alphinaud, Alisaie and Erenville. As with any expansion, fans are already keen to learn more about the new content set to arrive, namely the two new Jobs.

Dawntrail is still a ways off and currently set to launch in Summer 2024. With that in mind, the amount of information that Square Enix has revealed on the upcoming expansion is limited, but that hasn't stopped fans from speculating. The two new Jobs set to arrive alongside Dawntrail are expected to be a Melee DPS and a Ranged Magical DPS.

Update 8 January: We've updated this article with the most up to date information regarding the new jobs for Final Fantasy 14 Dawntrail.

Final Fantasy 14 Dawntrail: First New Job Revealed At London Fan Fest 2023

Speaking during the Final Fantasy 14 London 2023 Fan Fest, director Naoki Yoshida revealed the first of the two new jobs coming to Dawntrail next year — the Melee DPS class, Viper.

Yoshida confirmed that the Viper is a new job, exclusive to Final Fantasy 14. The class was added partially in response to fan enthusiasm for a new dual wielding Job that was different to the Ninja. The job has been designed specifically for the Dawntrail expansion.

The Viper's dual blades will be unique to the Job. In addition, this new job will not have a required starting class, and instead will be available from Level 80. Players looking to play Viper will need to have the Dawntrail expansion, and a character with at least one Level 80 Job class. Viper will be available immediately at launch.

Final Fantasy 14 Dawntrail: Second DPS Job Announced At Tokyo Fan Fest 2024

As part of the Fan Fest Tokyo 2024 celebrations, Yoshida revealed that the second new DPS Job will be Pictomancer. The reveal came as part of the festival's Keynote presentation on Sunday, January 7. 

The Pictomancer is an artist-inspired Job class, weilding a specialized brush to bring their imagination to life. This includes creating creatures, weapons, and also altering the landscape. While some of their abilities will have a cast-time, others will be instant-cast.

Previously, players had speculated that the new job would be pirate-themed, owing to the strong presence of pirates within FF14 already. Players also speculated the return of Jobs such as the Geomancer, which had been referenced in past lore. Perhaps these Jobs will emerge in a future expansion. 

Final Fantasy 14 Dawntrail: New Limited Job Announced For Patch 7.X

As part of the Fan Fest Tokyo 2024 reveals, it was announced that a new Limited Job would be arriving in Final Fantasy 14 in late Patch 7.x — Beastmaster. At the time of wrting, not too much has been revealed about this Limited Job, however we've seen it appear in a few previous Final Fantasy titles including Final Fantasy V and Final Fantasy XI (where it was an advanced Job).

As we head closer to the Summer 2024 release date for Final Fantasy 14: Dawntrail, we'll likely learn more about these new, upcoming DPS Jobs. We'll be sure to update this page as more information is made available. In the meantime, be sure to check out the teaser trailer for the upcoming expansion below:
