To be honest I will probably end up having three characters. I have State for Alchemy with my stats set to cap INT and provide some Off-Hand boost as well. TO be honest I do not want to ever have to reassign my stats over the corse of a hole day just to opt for a DoW class. Could I pull it off with a DoM? Probably bt then also I would have to reassign a lot to VIT as well. This is just fairly unacceptable.
I would prob end up doing characters that would share strengths... I plan on leveling THM on State so it will still prob be my main since I plan on having high INT/PIE anyway, and can avoid having to waste too much stats on MND since there is ample supply of MP gear, and MP replenishing abilities, but with the need for cross class abilities to opt any job, its a pain to grind on a gimped class when you know your gonna craft so much that reseting stats will hurt your output.
In the end I will prob end up with 3 or 4 characters, and gladly pay for them all.
State Alchemist: ALC/BOT/THM (A INT/PIE build. Although BOT will prob end up on a different character.)
Char #2: LNC/BOT(A STR/VIT/DEX build. And some crafting like bsm/arm/gsm maybe idk.)
Char #3: GLA (Will level a bunch of stuff to opt my class but will end up going a pure VIT/DEX/MND build for def/acc/m.def.)
This will allow me to save time between switching stats around all the time.
(I am actually hoping that they eventually offer some kind of 100% stat reset that you either have to trade an item to be able to do, or pay a fee and maybe only allow it like once every so often.)
