I will refrain from my opinion about Beta 3 and the game at this point of time, because it can summed up to: I liked what I saw.
But I still have many more things to see, at the puny Lv. 10 I managed to reach this time around with my THM :)
I have a question:
Do you have any idea how cross-class skills work this time around? Say, if you are a THM and would like to have, oh I don't know, Lancer skills, how would you go about it?
Level up <new class> first, then once this new class reaches Lv. 10 you can use some of its skills while being THM again? Do you have to change your gear, as THM, to have access to those new skills from <other class>? And I suppose that any cross-class skill is not as 'potent' as using it with the class it's originally intended for, am I right in this?
Each class has certain abilities and attacks that can be used cross class. On your ability menu you can see the class requirements to use an attack/ability on each job you unlock.
With cross classing you unlock more cross class slots as you level up. You initially start with one.
To equip them you simply go to your ability menu, click the icon of the class the ability is located and then it is like a check box sorta. You click the ability and drag it to your action bar. Or equip it on ps3 sorta.
You can use cross class slots at level 1 once you unlock the other classes. ATM you have to get to 10 obviously to unlock other classes. But in beta 3 I leveled thm and pug with cure/protect. Makes it easier.
As for potency I have not noticed a reduction, but then again most the cross class stuff I done have been abilities. Well I take that back sorta. Cure on pug is really weak compared to the mage classes. Edited, Jun 16th 2013 11:25am by Xatsh
