Could one of you knowledgeable folks give me a quick explanation of attributes?

Are they shared between classes/jobs? Are they separate? Thanks.

Your attributes are specific to your class. So you get bonuses point for your Gladiator, and can put them in VIT, and you get bonuses for your Thaumaturge and can put them in INT.

To know exactly what they do, just move the cursor over the stat and a pop up will appear that will tell you what the stat affects on your character.

I believe a job shares the attributes of its base class as well. So BLM's stats are the same as its base class THM. This goes for SMN and SCH which both share ACN as well.

This is most definitely true so it's good to know which class you enjoy more. If you pick all INT attributes on ARN, you're set up for SMN, but if you pick all MND updates, you're set up for SCH healing. The jury is still out on the Str vs Vit argument for tanks.

I heard that the Grand Company store sells a respec item. I think I remember seeing it back in Phase 3, but it's been a while (didn't get to play much in Phase 4, so don't know if it's there or not).
