Arcanist, Scholar, and Summoner confirmed (branching classes)

They just confirmed Arcanist as a new class, and then branch jobs from that:

Scholar - Heal over time role, has a fairy pet that changes stances/abilities.
Summoner - More damage oriented, Titan/Shiva/Ifrit pets

Arcanist is also a pet class that has Carbuncle.

More jobs will likely be branched out of the classes later; for instance, they were tossing around Ninja and Samurai as popular choices but did not confirm anything.

Weren't Arcanist and Summoner confirmed a long time ago? :x

Arcanist is going to be my main, and I'm very happy at the current job selection.
Awaiting: Animal Crossing, AC4, LR:FFXIII, FFXIV:ARR, FFXV, BD:FF, Pokemon X, DA:I, Zelda: ALBW

make sense, though Ninja and Samurai may require their own weapon categories since their
weapon style is nothing like Gladiator/Paladin's.

FF Samurai commonly use 2 handed katanas (great katanas in FFXI case).

FF Ninjas usually wield 1 ninja sword or dual wield ninja swords
So for FFXIV ARR, a ninja weapon would probably be bought/found and equipped in pairs.

Wouldn't mind if Ninjas and Samurai both wield katanas, but neither of them should be just a Class.

Arcanist/Summoner was known a long time ago, and Scholar we got info on a few weeks ago, this is the first they actually showed of them though
Cast in the name of God, ye not guilty.
