Thanks!

Run. Inside of Lomna, there is a place called the Fairy Docks (Where you started your game). Take the ferry to Thanalan, and then run east to ul'dah.

From ul'dah, you can run east to Gridania.

And you can start goldsmithing at Lomna, go shopping in the market for the rank 1 goldsmithing stuff.

If you are lucky you might be able to find someone who is teleporting out somewhere else. If you party with them and stand nearby, then when they teleport you will get an option to go with them at no anima cost to yourself. Then in the new area just attune yourself to a aetherite. I think some people are charging gil to teleport others

The long way is to travel there all by yourself. From Limsa, you have to hop on a ferry at the docks and take the boat ride to the west coast of Thanalan. Then you just run east and south to Ul'Dah. From Ul'Dah you just head back up and keep going east until you cross the border into the Black Shroud. Head north to Gridania. The path to each of the major destinations is marked by a 'highway/road' on your map. As long as you stay away from certain monsters you can make it all the wya without dying or getting into trouble. As you go, it helps to stop in at the Aetherite camps along the way and attune yourself to fill out how many locations you can teleport to directly later.

Why do you wanna run to other cities. When i wanna do a job and theres no official Guild for it in my Town, i just go to the Market ward. There i can buy then all tools for nearly all other jobs.

Nearly, but not all. If I remember correctly there's only one vendor for level 1 bows and lances and he's in Gradania. Sucks a little if you're in LL and want to switch to Archer.

The Market Ward is like a free market where players sell things. No NPC's! xD
You should be able to find a goldsmithing tool in there.

Maybee i misunderstood something, but in Gridania is a place where NPC's are selling nearly every level 1 tool for doing the other jobs

i tried, and made it, to the city of ishgard but upon talking to the guards they said something like, you have to hear the song of the Goddess, or something, and I couldn't get in. Has anyone been in this city yet or know the quests to enter? Or maybe I used the wrong entrance? thanks for any help.

@vanyellfallsapart:
This place is way NW of Girdonia right? Theres 2 guards standing infront of a big gate? I was there the other day too and they wouldn't let me in either. The drawing of a castle or something on the map looks pretty sweet though. My guess at the time was that maybe it'll be the 4 city we'll gain access to later. This game's Jeuno basically. I really have no idea though.

In order to get to Gridania from Limsa is to take the ferry to the Thanalos (I think thats right) region. AKA Ul'dah area.
Once there follow the Road east. That road will take you to Gridania.
There are a few things you should pay attention to however. Antlings for one are aggressive mobs on the way that will eat you if you are not careful.

Also be sure to grab all the aetheryte crystals you find on the way so that you can teleport back to them in the future should you need to.
