So I've been trying to make my way from Limsa Lominsa to Ul'dah. First I take the ferry from Limsa to Thanalan, but then I die trying to sneak passed high level mobs in Thanalan. Is there an easier way to do this? Also the map for Thanalan seems to have no correlation to the way the landscape is laid out, which is really annoying.
The reason I'm trying to get to Ul'dah as only a level 10 THM, is so I can buy the Worm-eaten square shield for my Thaumaturge.
