So, ever have those regrets in a game where you think to yourself, "Man, next time I start all over from the beginning, I'd do this..." Well, let's share them!
Me? I think that one thing that I always regret is I tend to rush into leveling. I like being helpful and being helpful usually requires grinding to get levels, gear and such so that you can help others get stuff later on... But getting levels can make you miss out on the other things the game can provide. Not to mention the hurry up and wait method isn't always the best. Though you don't want to wait too long or no one will be doing the missions, etc. when you're ready to do them.
I think I may start trying to level a craft this time around first. Maybe increasing my physical and job levels only for farming things I need/can't get my hands on any other way. Not sure if I'll do cooking or weaving or leathers... I like to be self sufficient as much as possible so I know I will be dabbling in just about everything... but if I make myself known as a good, fair, and trustworthy crafter, gil should be a lot easier to come by. Not to mention you can make a large network of friends that way too.
