Well I finally got FFXIV working, so I've been messing around in game on my black ma.. er therma-whatever, but it hasn't been going overly well. I completed the intro leve, (spore spoor) and moved on to trying a regular combat leve and promptly got my *** handed to me. Like wise I've gotten kicked in the behind in just random fights with marmots that rank as easy prey-even match..
As an FFXI vet I'm no stranger to the occasionally invincible rarab of doom that seems to dodge everything, but this is just happening way to often so clearly I must be doing something wrong here. Anyone have any advice? I'm only rank 3 atm, and have the starter gear and spells, which seem to do incredibly random damage ranging from none at all to 1/3rd of the mobs life in one hit.
Honestly so far it seems like XI was far more accessible as a newbie.. even my woefully ill-informed choice of starting as a war/whm way back when (release) did better in combat then I seem to be doing in XI-2 >.>;
