Dengeki interview summary:

– No Grand Company in Kugane, but there will be a different kind of an “organization” there

– Teleports from one continent to the other will be costly, but most likely won’t exceed 999gil

– Gilgamesh might appear in the 4.x series.

Famitsu interview summary:

– The reason why Ala Mhigo and Doma fell was not only because of the difference in power. This aspect will be touched upon in the main story.

– Othard is not only based on Japanese culture, but rather the Orient and Asia in general

– There will be some kind of focus on The Island of Val in the main story.

– Oriental glamour gear planned for 4.0. Some Instance Dungeon and Raid gear might have an oriental design as well.

– Shirogane will have apartments

– The new tomestones and the raids will be released a few weeks after the release of the expansion

– Red Mage will share gear with casters and it’s main stat will be INT

– Samurai’s “sen” system is a completely new rotation system. It’s more similar to Monk’s stances, completely different from Ninja’s mudras.
