The game hasnt even started and my mind keeps changing on what class to start with. If this keeps up I won't get anywhere fast in game.

I'm thinking a tank class because Tanking with a controller could be interesting.
But also wouldnt mind being a DPS, and relaxing a bit.
Healing so far hasnt even poped into the head. Not on my radar. But I'm sure it will.

I guess the most Important thing to do right now is decide on a Race, Since I can be every class I want eventually.

If Race Altaholism starts. I'm DOOMED!


I guess if I were to make this thread even remotely thought provoking I'll ask this question:

What Class are you going and why?

I'm going Archer Main from jump street. I was a RNG in FFXI, and when I look at all the love that SE has shown this class, I feel just a bit less salty about the nerf.

Never forget...

Playing my 1.0 character made the starting class choice simple. Since open beta was capped at 20 the only class that could actually earn XP for me was Arcanist. So I went with that.

I started on Diabolos server, and made a Maurader. Really liked it. Hit level 10. So I tried an Arcanist liked the whole casting thing. So I tried a Thaur liked it. Then I tried a Pugilist liked it. Archer Liked it. They're all so dang good.

But Since I'll be starting over on Ultros with ZAM FC. I must decide on something to level first. Based on what I've PLAYED, If It was a tank I'd go Maurader (since I havent played a guardian) If it was DPS I'd go Pugilist.


If I were to try something new. I'd probably level Guardian or Lancer since those are really my only two I havnt tried haha.

So really my choices are Maurader, Pugilist, Guardian, Lancer. To start with. Hmmm!

THE CHOICES!

lancer is good, but a few of their attacks are position based like from behind or the side, the pugilist is more direct with a few percentage bonus's when in a different form from behind, i personally like both as they have a different style where the lancer is a little bit slower with hard hitting attacks and slowing moves, where the pugilist with their fast hitting moves and gaining hasted with greased lightning .... i had a nice build in the beta 4 but ive got a new account with Ea and Ce items.. so i need to start fresh .. kinda went like this tho

Lancer - main

1 True Thrust Weaponskill Delivers an attack with a potency of 150.
2 Feint Weaponskill Delivers an attack with a potency of 120.
4 Keen Flurry Ability Increases parry rate by 20%.
6 Vorpal Thrust Weaponskill Delivers an attack with a potency of 100.
8 Impulse Drive Weaponskill Delivers an attack with a potency of 100. 180 when delivered from behind target.
10 Leg Sweep Weaponskill Delivers an attack with a potency of 130.
12 Heavy Thrust Weaponskill Delivers an attack with a potency of 100. 170 when delivered from a target's flank.
18 Life Surge Ability Ensures critical damage for first non-magic action used while Life Surge is active. Damage dealt will be absorbed as HP, up to 20% of maximum HP.

and from other class's i had

Bloodbath Ability Converts 25% of the damage dealt by next successful offensive ability into HP.
- from Marauder

Venomous Bite Weaponskill Delivers an attack with a potency of 100.Enhanced Venomous Bite: 18 seconds
- from Archer

Second Wind Ability Instantly restores 15% of maximum HP. - from Pugilist


nice sustained damage with healing 3 abilities for emergencies when i do leve quests 4 levels above me with 3 mins

Sounds like a blast. I've yet to try out the armory system. And use skills from multiple classes.

Still Can't Decide. Marauder vs Guardian if I go tank, Lancer vs Pugilist if I go DPS!

In the long run It really doesnt matter. I should probably worry more about my race and character model since I'm stuck with that. But still fun to hear what people are going and why.

I liked thau, but felt a bit squishy. Of course I had just come from a Maurader so that may be why.

id take advantage over leveling the other class's from time to time, you get whats called an armory bonus, the higher your main is, say lvl 20.. you start out a lvl 1 you get an exp bonus which goes off how far you are away from your main lvl, i dont know the percentages, however in beta 4 i lvled my lancer to lvl 17 and started a pugilist and only did the hunting logs, within an hour i was hitting around lvl 13

Ah yes I forget about the armory bonus. Gonna head on over to xivdb And research Gladiator, Marauder, Pugilist and Lancer. Hopefully I'll come up with a decision before I goto bed in 12 hours. :-)


I've settled on a Race. Miqo'te. After viewing all races in the Character Creator. They looked the best from my point of view in the armors. Plus I can see them logically being the most classes. For Instance, I can't see a Roegadyn being a Caster or an Archer. Even though I love how they look in paladin gear. But I can see a Miqo'te being Archer or a Melee DPS a Tank a Healer, and even a Caster DPS even though I see that a bit less.( Again this is just from my perspective I'm sure many others have different POV's). Since my race is going to fill multiple roles when all is said and done. I wanted something that could seem like it fit in doing the biggest variety of classes. That's just me though.
