I've been having a blast in XIV so far, and just hit Physical Level 12. My Mining is at Rank 8, and my Goldsmith is at Rank 7. That said, my Marauder is at Rank 8, and I'm really having difficulty finding a steady way to increase it further. Seeing as I can only do 8 Guildleves every 36 hours, to my knowledge, finding other ways has been a chore, at best.
There simply aren't enough trash mobs around to grind on, and even when I do happen across one, the EXP gained is rather insignificant.
Am I missing something? Are there other ways to find a healthy stream of enemies to level my Marauder on? I honestly never thought my crafts would ever be close to exceeding my main melee job. >_<
