Job Update

I can't even remember if I told you all that I was leveling Scholar recently. Well I have, and just hit 75 earlier today. Yay me!

Now that I have more than the basic set of spells from every other mage class, I have to say that Scholar looks like it could be a very fun job. The time limit of strategems and such means careful management of your abilities, and a bit of thought to play effectively.

It was boring as hell to level up until 60, and even then there wasn't much excitement due to the FFXI's playerbase mindset that if you can cast Cure III in any job, your role is always main healing. Thankfully, all of my magic skills are capped due to my other jobs.

So now I'm running around, playing with the various Helix spells just to see what they actually do and if they can serve a real purpose during a non-exp party fight. I'll see what trouble I can get into.

However, there is one thing about Scholar that any future member should be ready for:

You become jailbait. If you're a Mithra, stay away from this job.

I'm now an official member of the Vana'diel Jailbait Society. Granted, I could have joined when I got my full AF at level 60, but I would have been easy prey to all the pedophiles scouting for an easy target. At least now I can get moral support from other members.

Seriously, that's how I feel when walking around in full AF. Like the eyes of Maat models everywhere are watching; eagerly anticipating the moment when I run into a friend and do a /bow motion so they can get a glimpse of the scholar "pants."

I notice it from other people too. Anytime I fall in battle, people run to my backside before casting raise. Necro-pedos. Could it get any worse?

I have to admit, I was so glad when I hit 72. Not because I was that much closer to 75, but because I could wear my seraweels and cover up.

Other than that, yeah...Scholar looks like it will be a lot of fun.
