Hi all,

I was a tester for the game before it got released but sadly the PC I had at the time didn't handle the game too well. Well now I've upgraded and I'm now looking to start playing again and enjoy the game. I've played FFXI a lot over the past few years and really like it. I've got a few questions that I hope you can answer.

I'd like my first character to have a gathering skill or profession so that I can earn some money. I've been reading up on the botanist skill. Is this okay to take up if U want to gather?

In FFXI I played as a WHM/BLM combo. Is there a class like that in this game? Is a Conjury okay for solo play?

Which server maybe a good choice? I'm from the UK.

Thanks

Yep.

Well, actually Conjurers are both in one. You have heals and nuke magic. Later on, you will want so get some skills from some other classes, but until then, you are fine with Conjurer. Btw: FFXIV is (supposed to be) a lot more solo-friendly than FFXI was in the beginning.

That, I don't know.

Whilst I dont like bashing people, there are plenty of new / returning threads on the first page alone with advice on similar questions to yourself, Have a read on them for more info.

Most gathering classes make money from materials, Botanist, Miner are probably the best ones to make profit, you'd only really make good money 45+ from the +1 items.

All classes can be solo'd via Leve's and Behest. You could easily get a job to 40 in a couple of weeks play, more so if you get an EXP pty from shouts in Ul'dah.

As for servers, probably all are in or around the same, Im on Hyperion and in EU time, its pretty active, but as said before people will always say this as we have nothing really to compare it against.
