I just finished phase 4, and must say, really enjoyed it! Got my Lancer up to 19 and Pugilist to 10 (gonna be a Dragoon main) despite dealing with 24-30 hours of 3012.
Loved the many leveling options, the story, and the combat system. Can't wait to see how jobs fit into the grand scheme of things, and what jobs are in the pipeline to come later.
That being said, my only concern is how the job/class system is gonna work once they start releasing new jobs. If they don't release new classes but just have more splits like Summoner/Scholar, that means if you have one class at 50, you automatically have that job at the level cap with no more effort than unlocking the job. Granted there will probably be some grinding for gear to maximize it. It just feels too easy. I'm okay with the leveling rate, but the fact that you WOULDNT have to level a new job released off an old class.
For example a lot of people speculate Dark Knight from Marauder/Thaumaterge. If you have a 50 Warrior, you automatically get the 50 Dark Knight upon unlocking it!
Just curious to see how it works I guess. Anyone have any insight or thoughts?
