Small update in FFXIV (ah well, who am I kidding, I guess I played a lot):
- Warrior at 35
- Conjurer at 18
- Arcanist at 10
- Botanist at 17
- Miner at 16
- Fisher at 17
- Culinarian at 16
Warrior solo isn’t as fast as I had hoped, let’s see if there are some more good DPS skills coming, but I’ve been dutifully (haha) doing my daily Duty Roulette and Guildhest. Apart from not knowing the way (should get better by time) all the lowbie dungeons aren’t especially hard to tank. Except that slime boss in Copperbell Mines…
Despite what I wrote about Botanist, Gathering doesn’t seem to be so hard, at least in the early levels. Do a few levequests between the class quests, grind a bit, done. Fishing is actually kinda relaxing, watched some YouTube videos on the second screen and then it’s better than WoW fishing and can be done with audio and glancing over alone.
What I read from several people that players tend to level all related professions in bursts, as to be able to get rid of old gear and synergies between the Jobs and what not. So I got to 15 now on all 3 but I’m not seeing it, except getting rid of 2 pieces of sub-15 gear. Also no way I’m leveling 7 different (other) crafting professions to Level 15 now. My inventory is exploding in cooking mats and food already just from the one profession. I might try Weaver or Alchemist though.
