Haven't seen this posted yet, so thought I'd share. These are from multiple unofficial sources, but many people are corroborating the info so I'm calling it 95% accurate. This is just the requirements to unlock the job, does not count other classes' skills that can be used by the job.

Bard = 30 Archer / 15 Pugilist
Summoner = 30 Arcanist / 15 Thaumaturge
Scholar = 30 Arcanist / 15 Conjurer
Dragoon = 30 Lancer / 15 Marauder
Black Mage = 30 Thaumaturge / 15 Archer
White Mage = 30 Conjurer / 15 Arcanist
Monk = 30 Pugilist / 15 Lancer
Warrior = 30 Marauder / 15 Gladiator
Paladin = 30 Gladiator / 15 Conjurer

from http://www.reddit.com/r/ffxiv/comments/1l29jn/all_job_requirements/

I found out earlier Black mage is THM/Arcanist. Which makes sense, since most of the Arcanist spells were stolen from 1.0 THM.

That's incorrect. Black Mage is confirmed to require Archer. The confusion may be coming from the abbreviations, since ARC = Archer but many people confuse it with Arcanist (ACN).

Unfortunately, there's been a lot of misinformation out there thanks to assumptions based on 1.0 info. You're not the only one.

So weird for whm to have acn. THM just seems to have more usable cross-class skills (not to mention elements & all with lore), but whatever. Heard similar a few days ago so I was little prepared.

WHM is now CNJ and ACN, not GLA? At least Arcanist will be alot more fun for me to level than Gladiator. I love those magic makers.

I believe jobs can also access abilities from a 3rd class outside the required 2, but I'm not sure what they are. It's possible that WHM will be able to use THM skills, but I haven't heard any confirmation about these 3rd class skills yet.

Pooballs! I guess we have to wait until official release day to take the ferry/airships level 15+ right to change cities? I did the same thing: PUG to 15 {couldnt do the instance yesterday}

Yea, I understand that(sort of...) But I mean all the class quests are about learning to use the elements and all that, but ACN seems in the opposite direction plus less usable skills.

Strange, because when I went to pick up the quest earlier, it flat out said "Required: Arcanist Level 15." Who knows anymore?

A little weird, but at least they're both ranged DPS classes. I haven't played any ARC yet, but I've heard they have some potentially useful abilities (including threat management).

Well, your "about to" is much better than my "already did." But I got second wind so that's nice.

It said that 2 weeks ago when I last checked, when no one had any information on it... so I can say with some certainty that that's based on 1.0 data, which is obviously outdated.

Sounds like it is just a great idea to level everything to lv30.

In XI I was a Dragoon, and I'm a sucker for them... not sure if I want to go down that path again.
I've been a Tank and Melee DPS in WoW for the last few years, I fell that might be a safe place to stay. Even in a new MMO. Being "needed" is always nice :p

well you dont need to go as far as lvl 30 at the start. get everything to 15 and then the class you want to play to 30 should be good enough :P

I sadly really have no idea what I even want to try and become lol. In XI I had 2 goals: Be a Galka RDM and DRG. Took many years but I did get to see the game as them 2 jobs (and then later fall in love with BST).

Now I have no idea Smiley: clown

Are you sure that it's Dragoon = 30 Lancer / 15 Marauder? I keep hearing people say it's 15 pugilist. I need to confirm it before I level it up.

pugilist was the 1.0 job requirement. A bunch of people have already hit 30+ so the new information that is coming out should be correct but I don't know where the info is coming from.

I guess at the end of the day, it doesn't hurt if we leveled both Pugilist and Marauder to 15.

Yea especially since you can make use of all the cross skills you will be gaining.

Yup - DRG will use both MRD & PGL skills for cross-class, so they're not wasted - nothing ever is in this game. Internal Release & Second Wind from PGL will be very useful (first almost mandatory, 2nd just **** handy), as would Bloodbath & Fracture from MRD. Depending on the nature of the fight(s), I would be leaning towards Mercy Stroke (MRD) or Featherfoot (PGL) for the 5th spot.

I have been finding virus from ACN on my conj to be so helpful in dungeons. Tanks already have def boosting skills so why not debuff the boss even more! Teach them monsters not to get freaky with me when I say no!

So since I started as a PUG... (level 15 — awaiting to do the story instances and job instance), my path then should be once I get the Airship ability go Limsa Lominsa for Marauder, and level it to the 15 quest for WS... then take lancer all the way to 30?
