Mine will be Lancer. I thought that going into phase 3, and now I'm sure.

I always played support or heals in other MMO's, I think I want to be a melee dps this time and LNC or DRG are my favorites. I can't wait to open up DRG. That will be my initial goal from the start.

What are you planning on leveling first?

Conjurer and White Mage for the utility of helping people out whenever I can. I thought I'd only be able to level DoL/DoH and get away with it, but it seems like I can't. I was a WHM main in XI for a few years. Until some kind of Samurai job is released, it looks like I'll be back to that.

SAM was my 2nd favorite DD in FFXI, but I'll always remember the first time I saw a DRG in full AF armor in Windhurst almost 9-10 years ago, I always said that would be me someday!

Wow, has it been that long since FFXI launched? I feel very old.

I deliberately didn't play a tank class (or even visit Limsa, outside of quest reqs) in phase 3 so I would have something extra to look forward to at launch.

I envision my career path as
MRD to 15
To Grid, take LNC (invigorate) to 15
CNJ to 15 because curers are awesome
Alternating GLD and MRD to 50

Can't wait!

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.

My first job will likely involve walking over to the Aetherite and attuning myself to it. In which case I'll be approached by the local guard explaining to me a bit about Teleport and Return.

Then I'll walk my way over to the Market Tycoon and give them some item likely refrencing them to their personality. (Given my choice of Nation it will most likely be a Pie.) In which case the Markets will briefly be explained to me. There's another job there I can pick up from the same guy if I want.

Beyond that I'll get told to visit the Guild of the Class I chose at the beginning of the game. In which case I'll be given a brief description of said class, and, again, have an opportunity to pick up some more tasks to do along the way.

Then I'll head back to the Adventurer Guild leader and pick up my rewa-

Can I please get the remote control and fast-forward to launch?

It's still a toss-up between lnc, pug, and mrd for me. I really liked pug and mrd in phase 3, but that drg af is just so incredibly awesome looking that I have to get it. I'll probably start as mrd, and then try and level all 3 simultaneously if I can. Eventually I'll probably have most jobs leveled just for maximum cross-class and job possibilities.

Well, initially, I'll be a MRD so I can start in Limsa Lominsa, but PGL/MNK will be my main. I'll start as MRD, take LNC to, at least, 15, PGL to 30 to unlock MNK and, from there, focus on ARC and LNC to acquire useful cross-class abilities for my PGL/MNK before I dedicate myself to it completely.

Well, as I'm picking up where I left off with my legacy character, I'll likely finish topping off LNC to 30 and unlock the Dragoon class before I do anything else (LNC is 26 and MNK is already at 15).

Then, since I'm an obsessive multi-classer, I'll probably spread my time out over everything. Finish bumping all the classes up to 20 (everything is already at 15-18 if it isn't 20 already), then 25 or 30, before going back and topping off LNC/DRG at 50. If only for the potential added boost to leveling the next job I've heard about once one job is at 50.

I love keeping my class levels uniform way too much. Smiley: frown

CNJ to 30, GLD to 15 for WHM. Then head to 50 or start doing some mining haven't decided yet. If I get good dungeon drops I will probably wait to craft till my WHM is 50. If I am bored I will do some Mining and GSM and watch a movie while I do it.

I think I'll go with THM to start, like I was in Phase 3. Once I get airship access, I'll try out Arcanist as well, since I'd like to try out SCH at some point.

Outside of leveling a few other classes for some cross-class abilities, I plan on sticking with ARC/BRD all the way to 50. After that, I'll probably end up doing lots and lots of crafting

Same here. My plan right now looks like this:

  • Start PUG in Ul'dah; level to 15
  • Go to Gridania, unlock LNC, BTN, CRP, LTW
  • Level LNC to 30; unlock DRG

Most of the people I'm playing with are leaning towards either a tank class or healer. I'm the only person in my group who seems interested in going full-on DPS.

Can you explain why you're doing PUG first? Should I consider doing the same?

I'm guessing it's because you have to take pug to 15 for drg (lnc 30, pug 15) and Uldah seems to be the commerce hub.

Oh okay, thanks for explaining that.

Not to sound dumb, but I literally just started posting and following the forums again a few weeks ago when I started the Beta in P3, and I haven't come across a topic like that yet. ]

My guess is you guys all had these discussion over the past couple of months, and unfortunately I missed those. :(

Catching up now though. :)

Thanks for the help.

Not a problem, we've had lots of dicussions here but it's always good to have more. Heck, I'm still torn on just starting in Uldah as well, since I know it will be the commercial mecca and I plan to level lots of crafting and gathering classes. However, I already did the story in phase 3 for Uldah, so I'll prob stick with LL and then just sign up for the Uldah Grand Company. I also know where everything is in Uldah... not so much for LL or Grid.

I would like to try SCH because I like to heal, but don't like the WHM concept/gameplay really. SCH with hots sounds like more fun and I like the general appearance more too.

As of right now, those are the only three roles available. BRD is the closest to a support class, but it's a DPS first and foremost. ACN, SCH, and SMN may also display support class tendencies but probably in a similar manner to BRD.

SMN straight to 50, although I really enjoyed everything I played in the various beta weekends. I'm actually hoping ACN will get at least some healing now, and be the first class where you could choose which role for duty finder, because while I plan to play SMN, I enjoy healing also and wouldn't mind the insta-queues of a healer while progressing.

Speaking seriously, I can't answer this question fairly. My Dragoon is already my first 50. Which leaves me kinda hamstringed in saying "Well I can be taking THIS class up next." But I really have no idea.

Maurader and Arcanist are the other two classes I intend on leveling, but the order and extent of usage I've no idea.

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?

My plan is to start as CNJ because I like the feel of Gridania (was Windurstian in FFXI) and it will be an easy way to take the class to lvl 10. Then I will walk over to Ul'Dah and lvl THM up to 15 and complete the airship quests. Then make my way over to Limsa, unlock and main ARN -> SMN while peppering in playtime amongst all the mages for cross-class abilities.

Also, crafting/gathering when I only have a short amount of time to play and don't want to commit to dungeon runs etc.

It's not the same as FFXI. There are cross-class abilities you obtain by leveling the ability's native class high enough. Once you've unlocked it you can equip it on other classes (but you only have a limited number of slots, so you can't take everything). Keep in mind, not every ability is cross-class, and even those that are may have some restrictions (like DoM-only abilities).

At least during Beta 3, there were no level limitations on cross-class abilities. For example, a level 1 MRD could equip Provoke so long as you have already learned it on GLA. I wouldn't recommend actually doing that, but it's completely feasible.

When I started Beta Phase 2 you couldn't pick a DoL/DoH class to start, so, being restricted to Gridania, I started as LNC. I really wasn't that thrilled with combat as a LNC, so I swapped to Leatherworker at 10 and fell in love with the new crafting system. I then had it in my head that I would go full Crafter and forgo the battle classes altogether.

I then discovered that the "you must start as a battle class" was not just a Beta thing, and would be a for reals FFXIV ARR thing. So with phase 3 I started in Ul'Dah as a GLA, with the intention of swapping to Miner/Blacksmith/Armorer ASAP. Then, I discovered how far you had to go in the story to unlock all the basic functions of the game. Well, during my quest to unlock everything, I discovered I really liked battle as a Gladiator.

So, my current plans are to start as a GLA, and actually enjoy it and keep it going, while also crafting as a MIN/BS/ARM. I am not sure which will reach 50 first - whichever is the most fun for me!

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.

I'm pretty sure you get 1 CC ability slot to start at level 1, then your second one comes at level 6 or 7... I think. Smiley: dubious

At least during Beta 3, there were no level limitations on cross-class abilities. For example, a level 1 MRD could equip Provoke so long as you have already learned it on GLA. I wouldn't recommend actually doing that, but it's completely feasible.


Pretty sure you'd have to be at least level 5, when you get your first CC. (5, 10, 15, 20, 25... etc)

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.

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.

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.

Definitely CNJ, then WHM I guess. I had a lot of fun with it in the beta. It's definitely slow to start, but once you start getting busy in battle, it's all good :)

Which one gets the coolest hat? That's right, BLM.

Which is actually short for BLAM!

The plan is to do WHM first, since I'll be playing with two RL friends, one playing MRD, the other playing ARC.

I always enjoyed healing, WHM was the first 75 I got in FFXI. Though all other MMO's I didn't enjoy healing, but playing the ARR beta I had a lot of fun with CON. I think it really comes down to the gamepad controls.

Overall my main focus will be WHM and DRG, and I'll probably go towards SMN if I have time.

Going to start as Conjurer just for being able to start in Gridania - then switch over to Paladin and play through from there.

Probably a M Miq'ote LNC/DRG. A lot of the armor on Hyur just doesn't look good (to me). Also I wanted to go PUG but I don't like the MNK AF that much either.

Plus lore-wise and looks wise I think that the M Miq'ote will be great for a future THF/NIN class.

Also I was kinda worried about not being a tank or a healer, but the duty finder made it really easy to find groups while being a DPS.

Poll Removed: No more than one per thread, please!

Feel free to remove it there is already a poll on this.
