Accept the Inevitable

Well, it's June. The time is upon us.

Time to find out if Scholars will completely overthrow White Mages. Will Black Mages now have more MP via Convert? Will White Mage become the ultimate taxi-service with regular Teleport, Recall, AND Warp 2? What awaits us in the Walk of Echoes? Are we finally going to see an end to the CoP shouts in Whitegate?

So many questions that need to be answered and fears that should be laid to rest. The truth is, none of know what's about to happen. It's all speculation, except for the vague updates that SE has been feeding to us. All we can do is hope for the best.

In the meantime, it's time for everyone to start leveling those subjobs if you haven't already. I'm not even going to bother trying to find an East Ronfaure [S] party. I imagine that place will be jam-packed day in and day out for the next month or so. Thankfully, I only have two classes to level. Unfortunately, they are two that I really don't want to touch.

Well, Warrior isn't so bad. My only issue is that I'm one of those people who used an axe during my leveling, so I'd probably get funny looks for not using a great axe. I suppose I could always just use FoV and solo my way to 40. Not to mention, I had a weird dream not long ago about this job. I was running around with a great axe, doing Steel Cyclone to various enemies. Why I was dreaming of a job I rarely use is beyond me.

The job I truly want to avoid is Ninja. I don't dislike the job as much as Dark Knight, but I still don't want to level. At first, I was pretty gung-ho about it after I saw this video awhile back. I had even intended to level past 37 and go all the way to 75. Unfortunately, I remember taking a trip to the auction house to buy tools. When I saw the insane price of things such as Kurayami, Hojo, and various other items, I said screw Ninja and left things as they were.

So, if I plan to use a DD job ever again, it looks like I'm going to have to buy those tools after all and get to leveling. Damn you and your level increase, Square-Enix. Damn you to hell.

Argh!!! They need to post some Job specific teaser info already. And let us know what the level cap is being increased to. Level 80? Level 83? Evil minds want to know!

For leveling WAR you could probably just get an East Ronfaure [S] party and use a Polearm? Most of the EXP spots I've seen are people soloing FoV or leveling their NPCs.

To level NIN cheaply you can buy the elemental tools from Tenshodo NPCs. Or just stick to the ever popular level 37 Sync parties. Just Provoke and cast Utsusemi. You'll be 49 before you know it.

I didn't realize the Tenshodo had those tools. I'll definitely check that out instead of the Auction House.

Since NIN is 37, I guess I would have a chance to get an invite or make a party. Wouldn't hurt to try, I suppose.
