    Yoshida has gone to the official forums for FFXIV and provided some direct answers to some of the burning questions players have about the upcoming patch 2.1 work. Some of this is likely to be brought up during the Letter to the Producer later this week, but this is very targeted answers for some of the hot topics concerning players.

    Warrior and Marauder will be seeing large changes coming to 2.1. There has been voiced concern over the strength of the Warrior as a tank, especially end game content like the Binding Coil. There are many advantages that the Paladin holds over the Warrior that the Warrior doesn't make up for in other areas. So they are getting re-balanced to be a better tank.

    Warriors definitely needed re-balancing the most out of all classes. They are pretty shunned upon for end game content at the moment... Seems like most of these fixes will allow them to be a very good tanking class.

    Not being as reliant on improved healing with Wrath and a reduced stun are welcoming changes.
