jus started playin made a character as a black smith, which i did a quest where i had to make something which was kool obvously as a blacksmith i make stuff, but then had to do a quest where i had to kill things, which tbh i was expectin at some point, but whats the deal i mean if ur a blacksmith surely ur not cut out for fightin, do i jus buy a weapon or join a party?
In FFXIV, you can play any job on one character. If you want to be a Marauder, equip an axe and BAM! you're a Marauder. If you want to be a Conjurer, equip a wand and BAM! you're a Conjurer. Want to do some gathering? Equip a pickaxe and you're a Miner. Want to be a Blacksmith? Equip one of the Blacksmith tools and you're a Blacksmith.
So you can play as and level every class in the game on one character. Blacksmith obviously isn't a great battle job. So if you want to do battle quests, just buy a weapon/wand, equip it, and you can do battle quests. If you want to buy weapons, you can get most of them (up to level 20) from the Battlecraft section of the Market Wards. In the center of the Market Wards, there's an NPC who sells weapons.
2nd question how dya join a guild or something, cus im GUESSin im gona seen some help at some point!
They're called "Linkshells" (or LS) in FFXIV. If you want to join a LS, you can either /shout for one (most people are going to be in Uldah right now, so if you want to join a LS, you might want to go there), or you can check out the posts on the server forums for whichever server you're on.
