this might sound really stupid but I'm approaching level 50 with my Gladiator (never partied in FFXIV) and I'm like.. now what? And not in the sense that I don't know what else to do in the game.. I still have all my crafts to get past the mid-20s so I've got plenty of things to keep me occupied for a while still.
No, what I'm wondering is, if the cap is 50 (it is, right?) and I sometimes see level 76 monsters that hit me for 4000 points of damage (insta-death, here I come), then how would a level 50 party be able to take on monsters like that? because if you get killed IN ONE HIT, I don't care how many you are in your party, you still get killed in one hit..
I guess that's my noobish question.
