Low level gearFollow

Ok, just started playing 2 days ago as Lancer. I've made it up to level 12 so far and was wondering about gear. I've just been wearing the starting gear and no one sells any low level gear or weapons, at least polearms, at the selling area in Gridania. I've seen a couple pieces sold by NPCs but everything is so expensive and if anything like XI, not worth it. Is there a larger city that more players sell stuff at, kind of like Jeuno/Whitegate in XI?

I would rather not have to resort to crafting my own things, but I guess I will if there's no other choice. Other than those issues, seems like a fun game.

Most people put up Retainers/Wares in Ul'dah, go there and check. Also patch 1.19 has just been out for less than 24h, give it some times before people churning out new items.

Whenever a patch is done the market wards reset, so retainers that may be selling gear for your rank could be put away until the player logs in and re summons them. Give it a day and check out the Ul'dan wards first

Well I was looking for gear before the new patch came out, without success. Should I just reroll to Ul'dah then?

You don't need to start a new character to get to Ul'dah. Any rank 1 character can walk there without any real worry of aggro. It really isn't a very long hike either - the world is very small right now.

You can just ride the airship now or take a chocobo as well.

I'll try out the airship. I haven't even left the woods of Gridania yet, so I'd probably just get myself lost or killed. Are there any gear guides to look at for Lancer? Tutorials seem pretty scarce for XIV.

Edit: Ok.. wow Ul'dah is populated and has tons of stuff. Is gil that easy to make in this game? Level 14 bone scale mail 70 - 200k? Dated feathered harpoon for 100k? Man, I thought I was balling with my 50k.

Give it some times before new recipe items pop up, hopefully it will be lower price.
