So i've recently made my first character in FFXIV and while i am having fun i am also completely overwhelmed by how different this game is to the previous mmos i've played
So far i have been levelling up as a conjurer and botanist but if i am understanding the system correctly i can switch classes simply by equipping a new weapon?
Does this mean there is no need to have alts as i can cover all the roles i'd like in one character or are there benefits i miss out on by not having alts?
Also, i have been following the intro quest chains which has led me to the bearded rock camp thingy where i have done some leves. Will the intro quests eventually take me to other places or should i go and explore on my own to find them?
Should probably mention i started in the city by the ocean, i forget its name
Another thing, from what i gather the leves reset every 36 hours. Does that limit apply across all classes or do i get 8 battle leves for each class?
Sorry for all the stupid questions but i have tried reading the lodestone and on these forums but it is just so different from my previous mmos so any help would be much appriciated
