Hi to all
As already told in some my previous posts I am a new player of MMORPG.
All the community here helped me a lot with answers/advises for my (probably stupid) questions.
Now I am lvl 34 lancer (now I am dragoon since some days ...)
Until now I have kept my weapon/gear updated to my lvl just buying from the vendors all around.
Now I am finding some difficulties to find gear that increase my stat.
I understand the alternative: or to buy in the market on-line (but I have looked here and all the things seems to be very expensive for my possibility), or start a carpenter/armorer/lether or similar class and craft by myself what I need but in this case (if I understand well) I have to level those 3/4 classes al lvl 35/40 (that could be a pain ...).
What do you advise for a new player ? Are there other less difficult alternatives to keep updated my things ?

Dungeons, Grand Company, Leve's, Quest's to name a few. You will never have your gear up to date until some point after hitting 50 as all the gear you get now will be replaced by gear you get later on down the road.

yes there is ! BIG alternative... Do your story and your quest and you will get free gear all the way to 50. You can also do leve quest that might give you gear in chests, both GC and regular. When I lvled my Drg to 50 I made 2 mistakes.. (did this 2x) I bought gear to upgrade myself only to get the same gear in a quest or story or class quest later on. You can also spam dungeons for gear.. Brayflox drops infantry set plus pink scale armor stuff for lv 32 which you can wear for awhile, you can get pink weapons from chests in dungeons or even green Sunken city win gives a green weapon and if that doesn't help buy stuff with seals from your GC. Plenty of ways to get gear with out buying, you just might have to work for it tho

Most quests in an area are appropriate to the level you are at (I'm guessing you are levelling in places like Forgotten Springs right now). If you do the quests at each new area you come to you'll find most quests offer an XP reward, and a choice of a Tank, DPS or Magic equipment, or some allagan pieces. Use these to help you keep your equipment up to date, the same goes for the gathering line of quests and the crafting line.

I did all dungeons up to Brayflox, not yet temple of qarn, I did two battle (Ifrit and Titan, nornal mode) and all the guildleves. But now I have not one single things looted from dungeons.
Probably I have been unlucky, but the reason perhaps is that I did the dungeons only 1 time.
Now for my level I think that I have to do for some times the temple of qarn (cutte is too high and I have not yet unlocked it). Are the things from Grand Company good for my lvl ?

All of the idea's giving above are good for you level, it's a matter of which path you want to proceed with. Get used to not getting drops on most runs as the RNG seems to hate everyone/no one at the same time. It is nothing more than a time sink to keep you doing the content for a chance at getting items you need.

Ok, I will do so.
get lvl 35/36 (I am so close now), then do some times the sunken temple of qarn (hoping in the loots) and waiting the queque do some leve quest in upper la noscea (lvl35) or Costa del Sol ... hoping to find some good stuff ...
thank you for advises to all
