Heya guys, i've been playing XIV for a few days now, I am level 11 and a level 8 Marauder but I am still in the same equipment that my character started with. I've done as many Leve quests as I can but I have received no items from them or the monsters i've killed.
How do you get better equipment in XIV? I've searched all the shops I could find and they have sold no other equipment (Apart from one guy who sells the axe I already have and a gladiator sword)
Also, I have an icon on my screen, it's a red circle with a sword and shield inside of it, the text is in Japanese so I can't understand it. I assume it's something to do with repairs, which I have had the NPC do to all of my items, but it is still there.
Any help would be great! Thank you!
