I was so convinced to play as BRD, but after trying MRD in Beta I think I'll certainly be WAR. So first I'll stard GLD to leve up to 15 (and because I love Ul'dah) and switch to MRD once I get the airship pass, and then level it all the way up to 50.
Might as well take GLD to 22 for Provoke (as a cross class ability) before hitting MRD.
Oh wow, so I have a question... will it be like FFXI where you have to be double the level of the subjob to be able to use the powers of that subjob (In this case 44MRD/22GLD), or will you unlock Provoke on MRD when you hit 22?
You will unlock Provoke the first level you get a CC ability at. WHich I would guess is 5, as when I jumped MRD to 15 in beta, I had 3 CC's available. it might even be level 5.
Once you unlock cross-classing the first time, every class starts out with one slot from level one. I used it to carry Protect.
Oh, maybe there is one at level 1. I didn't think there was. And it's every 5 levels. Then when you ... IF you equip a job stone, CC's get dropped from every 5 levels to every 10 levels.

Oops, didn't catch your edit. I'm not sure what the exact levels are, but that sounds about right. Looking at it that way, the slot increases would be at 1, 10, 15, 20, …, 50. Level 5 gets skipped to give you your initial ability. Edited, Jul 19th 2013 5:18pm by FrozenSherbet
