Firstly, will there be sub jobs like in FF XI?
The skill system has confused me a bit...
Can any class use a skill from any other class? So, for example. As a Gladiator I gain a certain skill, then I can switch jobs to Archer and still use this skill, as long as my archer is an equal or higher level?
But if I switch to a different disciple, then the effect will be reduced?
And, you can only have so many active skills at any time? Like guildwars where you have 8 (I think) on the action bar, or is that not the case for this game?
Do skills become more effective by using them? I think it was like that in FF XI, where your white magic skill would increase as you used it more. But then what would happen if my active job was a Thaumaturge but I was using a Conjurer spell? Which skills would see an increase?
How do you actually gain skills? Do you inherit them at a certain level like WoW, or do you unlock them by putting skill points in to certain stats? Or something different?
What would happen if I switched to a pick axe to do some mining and I got attacked? Could I still use offensive spells/attacks but they'd have reduced effectiveness?
Hope someone can help. Thanks.
