So you're saying as soon as you bought the game and hopped on you already knew which sub jobs wouldn't work? And you were also too good to play with other people who just started the game?
I had a pretty good sense of what I was getting myself into when dealing with other people. That being said, my first 75 was Beastmaster.
This pretty much sums it up. My first job to 75 was Beastmaster, too. The thing about that
job is that it teaches you how to survive well on your own, taking on the role as puller/DD/tank/healer. The subjob combinations made sense to me, and I tried a variety of them. To start, the first few levels I went as BST/WAR. Then, for awhile I used BST/WHM. Once I hit a certain level, I started using BST/NIN most of the time.
I had a level 100+3 Mithra cooking mule named Sloppyjoes, which I used on a regular basis to make me Yagudo drinks and Pamama/Persikos au laits, any food required for the situation, jugpets, and pet food. I also had three Persikos gardening mules to keep me stocked up. Pamamas were dirt cheap in Kazam. With all of the unstackable hides that dropped from the monsters, I leveled Leathercrafting along the way to convert hides into stacks, eventually reaching 100+3, too.
After BST 75, every job is cake to solo. It wasn't that I was too good to party with new players, but that I could level more efficiently and safely on my own up to level 20. I'd rack up the xp by chaining even match to tough Goblin melees. I've raced Dunes' parties to 20, and the only way they could beat me, is if they had a good PL.
