[quote=Grandmomma]Thanks for this helpful thread.
I'm a blm level 34. My archer is level 16. I'm surprised it didn't level up, Only my THM did.
Is there a NPC I'm to go to to have it sync? Or do I have to level my sub class each time my BLM level hits an even number?
even worse, if you want all the possible subskills(not sure how good the archer ones will be on BLM) you need to level archer(and arcanist) to level 34, and be prepared to go even higher if and when new skills are introduced
A) your 'Job' is only level sync'd with the 'class' it's born from, BLM only levels/is leveled by THM, MNK <> PUG, BRD <> Archer, etc with the unique exception of arcanist, summoner and scholar, where there's a 3-way exchange, SMN <> SCH <> Arcanist <> SMN*
B) cross-class skills are NOT level gated to 1/2 main level. a level 50 THM can use the level 42 PUG skill mantra, and a level 50 BLM can use the level 34 arcanist skill eye for an eye
C) remember, you only care about skills, there is no bonus to having an up to date subclass otherwise. If you don't want the higher level archer skills that can be cross-class, you never have to level it past 15 *meaning, once you level to 30 arcanist and unlock both SMN and SCH, if you equip SCH and never change again, you'll have all 3 of : lvl 50 SCH(from playing it), lvl 50 Arcanist(because it's linked to SCH) AND lvl 50 SMN(because it's linked to arcanist). This works with any of those 3
Thanks so much, very helpful!!
What about the stats increas, like agility from the Archer advancing? Doesn't that carry over to the BLM?
Oh and somehow this looks like I'm questioning and answering myself lol. Not sure how that happened. Edited, Sep 4th 2013 8:05am by Grandmomma
