Previously we dissected what was recently the big daddy of a live letter for the upcoming expansion, and now we will be looking into more details of what exactly are role actions and what each action does. Keep in mind that images shown and details are subjected to change, as Stormblood are still in it’s final stages of development. Stormblood is slowly but surely crawling its way to release and I wish it could come faster, but in the meantime let’s get prepared and torture ourselves with more development footage. Because who doesn’t like pain?
 

Just Role With It (heehee)

As we have mentioned before, Role Actions will be determined by your role; Tanks, Healers, Melee DPS, Ranged DPS and Caster DPS. Each Role Action is there to help you play your role more effectively, no more leveling up another tank class for its tank action.
 

Tanks

Notes
All tanks have an action that can stun and silence, depending on which Role Action you select. Play around with your party members and see what will suit you best!
Tankswaps made simpler with 2 Provokes and Shirk! No more cooldown excuses for you not to pick up that boss.
