So, last night I was checking out some ( a lot ) of threads on ZAM (per usual) and I realized something. I went from wanting to be a Wildwood Elezen Gladiator to wanting to be a wildwood pugilist. Why? Because I was reading up on the armor/weaps and found out that everything has durability on them, and that, in theory, Gladiators would be spending the most money on rekindling their armor durability because we would be getting hit the most. So then I decided that since I'm usually the poor high level wanderer, I wouldn't be able to afford it so I went for pugilist (which I thought was second best.) Then, for a craft, I decided that I wanted to do Botany because it seemed like DoL crafts didn't require as much money input as DoH crafts, when REALLY...I wanna be a blacksmith or armorer.
SO I DECIDED **** IT. I'M GONNA BE (caps lock for life) WHATEVER THE **** I WANNA BE.
Hahahahha point of this forum is, I was talking to my cousin (who is also extremely eager to play), and we both decided that even though the forums are good and informative, we need to also realize a big part of the forums right now are theory and hypothetical. And even when things are factual, like the durability part, people need to still realize that even though this game can get serious (trust me, I know as a FFXI vet) it's also meant to be incredibly fun. Let's be whatever job/craft we wanna be. Not because it's the cheapest, or it's what'll get us further in the game faster, but because it's what tickles our fancy, and what we actually wanna do.
Am I ranting? I hope not LMAO. Anyways, these are my thoughts!:)
