My short term goal is to be a WHM
Long term, I want every job to at least 30
I had to reroll on a different server and am wondering what path would get me there fastest.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the experience of taking my time thru the game. But right now, I just want to get WHM unlocked and it seems to be going painfully slow. especially the weakling ACN which (imo) is terribly under powered.
any advice on the quickest route and specifics would be greatly appreciated.
If you find leveling ACN to be painful, try leveling CNJ all the way to 30 first before touching ACN. You get an exp bonus when leveling a class that's not your highest level, and the size of the bonus is based on the difference in levels between your highest class and the one you are leveling. So having CNJ at 30 will potentially give you the biggest bonus for leveling ACN (assuming that the bonus doesn't cap at some difference in levels lower than 30).
Also, you get a significant bonus the first time you complete a Guildhest. So if you can get away with, you might want to avoid doing the lvl 10 Guildhests (which would also block progress to attempt higher level ones) on CNJ and do them the first time on ACN.
I started out as THM, and did all of the Ul'dah quests on that class. Then I leveled CNJ so I could cross class abilities. With just the Gridania quests, rested exp bonus and a few FATEs, I got up to lvl 8 or 9 without needing to do any Levequests. I think I had to do about 5 Levequests to get to lvl 10, which unlocked a few more quests. So even if you don't want to wait until CNJ 30 to either level ACN or to do Guildhests, the first 10 levels should go pretty quickly. You could even do something like the following:
- level CNJ to 15 using Gridania quests and main storyline
- after getting Airship access, unlock ACN
- level ACN using Limsa Lominsa quests to level 10
- do the level 10 Guildhests as ACN to take advantage of the first time clear bonus
- go back to CNJ (now you can do the lvl 15+ Guildhests on CNJ)
- finish up ACN to 15 whenever you have the Guildleve allowances for it
