If i wanted to level another class to 50 i'd certainly make another character before trying to grind out another to 50 with that being said the 50% exp bonus might even out the lack of one time story and side quests per character

Hmm, I like tanking dungeons personally (currently only lvl 29 glad though). I usually run them at least 3-5 times while I'm working on quests and end up getting full sets (or at least close) which makes everything else a breeze. My only complaint is the lack of aoe threat, I usually don't have big issues as people are good about not spamming aoe but there are a few that feel the need to use aoe at all times.

First time playing a tank in a mmo and loving it so far. I guess I like the control being the tank gives while doing dungeons biggrin.gif.

UPDATE: I'm ADDICTED! hairysmiley.png

I'm level 25 already and I have 20K Gil. My only 'hate' in this game is that not all the cut scenes have voiceover.

A question though, when I reach level 30 on my PUG, should I start leveling up my Lancer so I can get Monk ASAP or should I get PUG to 50 and then Lancer?

Ummm it doesn't matter that much. Personally i'd get lancer to 15 quickly (should only take a couple hours) that way you aren't held back once you hit 50.

Ok thanks. smile.gif Is there a point in promoting in your Grand Company? I spent the last 2 hours doing FATEs just so I can promote but is there really a point to it?

Thre are some decent items to bridge gaps in your gear. The 50 weapon will help when starting primal. Its not necessary though in anyway. The other benefit is higher ranks have higher seal caps so you won't waste the seals you get from fate grinding other classes.

The Seals are also useful for getting gear and taking the allagan pieces form quests, instead of the gear. You can also buy a chocobo with it, if you didn't already know.

Ok, I love this game but I still can't grasp how the gear in this game works. tongue.gif

Also, I had a rough time getting from level 1 - 15, is there a trick to it? What should I do to level my Lancer to level 15?

I keep hearing +1 gear. No one wants to explain to me what is +1. Haha, it's probably just something small too...

Also, I've been getting some brief moments of artifacts in the game. I'm on the newest WHQL driver by Nvidia and this GPU has never been overclocked. Anyone experiencing the same thing? It lasts maybe 2 seconds and only happens every few hours (not even close to being frequent) but I'm still wondering if it's caused by the game, driver, or my card. Any ideas?

Nope, no problem for me, on latest drivers and previous ones. Try other drivers.
