    why all the others on the forums are crying for "Nerf FATEs" or "Buff Dungeon XP" or "add more quests & make battle leves better". personally, as I said before, I'd rather buff XP you get from dungeons and battle leves, along with repeatable quests that give only XP. give the people more viable options than one glaringly amazing one amongst a few mediocre ones.

    however I do feel like SE will do something about it with the 2.1 patch. hopefully. maybe. taking my time though!
    I really, really think they should have separate leve allowances for combat and gathering/crafting. As it is right now most people don't really feel like using their allowances on battle leves because leveling a crafting job without them is a real pain in the arse.

    not like you really would use battleleves unless you want a break from doing so many fates.
    the exp/reward is decent at best.

    With the right fate areas you can get up to 300k for 20-40 minutes. A friend of mine hit 1-33 in about 4 hours.

    Once I finally get my first job I want to work on some crafting but still undecided on which one to do.

    Well, battleleves are always level appropriate and always available. They are also really, really fast, and you can get treasure chests out of them.

    Come join me on Midgard. Not only are we one of the winners for the "Cactuar Earrings" but...well I'm here.

    http://mogcast.com/threads/ffxiv-off...ng-servers.67/

    I've got plenty of sub jobs to level since I'm busy with work most of the week so we would be able to group together pretty often. Let me know what your IGN is if you decide to roll on Smores.

    Today was the first day, I forgot all about my main quest, and prioritized on Fates.

    It was fun then annoying, then fun again when my party started making jokes.

    FC made my life on this game 10x more fun.

    Thinking about switching to Puglist for my main class, I don't see a lot of DPS in low levels. But I see a lot of marauders.
    Can anyone tell me, if there's a shortage of tanks or DPS late game?

    Shortage of Healers and Tanks. Plenty of DPS.

    Lich, Thanks. I'll stay with Marauder/Warrior, I mean the worst thing ever would be for too many tanks on one team.

    Sidenote: Get so much EXP when you tank a FATE.

    The curse is when everyone randomly starts leaving the game - MMO hoppers/ONRPG hoppers

    I'm going to switch to midgard, once I get the chance. Wait for me:3

    Will do. I work a lot during the week so I play pretty casually. This week I'm going to work on some sub jobs and maybe a little crafting. So, you don't get to far ahead of me. xD

    Lol, you won't get more exp then the fate will allow to be gotten. Even if you go to the lvl50 area's as a lvl1, you won't be getting a max of 600-1200 exp on a gold plate, and it slowly increases with your lvls.

    it's a nightmare healing a warrior in pugs, fyi.
    even in raids you rarely will have a warrior over a paladin, lol. no idea what they were thinking when they made the warrior.

    I 'eard, Warriors need a huge buff. Because bloodbath, and what not is really underpowered and Paladins get Foresight.

    But, sooner or later they'll get the buff, and I'll be there. when you need a tank, I'll be there. So on and so forth too early in the morning to make show references.

    Warriors seem to do just fine. All of the best tanks Ive partied with have been mrd/war. I think they just take a little more effort than pally's

    there's also talk about giving bonuses for using DF, so the game will at least compensate you for possibly being placed with a group of a-holes or idiots.

    Warriors just are really underpowered for tanking, mainly because it's just hard to balance. If they buff the lifesteal, they'll be the preferred pick. It would reduce the need for as much healing.

    Pallies have damage migration + Warriors Foresight, which just makes them the better choice. They just don't die, while a warrior may do alittle more damage. One screw up the warrior will die, One healer has to heal someone other then the warrior, he will be really low/die.
    While a pally, be at 100% hp then drop to 70% if the healer switches target and will have ample time to do alittle damage then go back to a steady heal.

    Warriors do have a better early game though.

    this.
    there are zero cooldowns on warriors, and when you start gearing up paladins will just skyrocket in terms of ehp while warriors will struggle reaaal bad to survive.
    only reason warriors can even tank right now is because they cross-class paladin skills.
    should just turn the warrior into a berserker (arms warrior a la wow) but with lifesteal so they can off-tank / tank easier dungeons.

    actually I would be perfectly happy with the whole PLD MT/WAR OT thing, but the thing is, the talk over in the Tank forums that I can agree with, it's just better to have 2x PLDs instead of a PLD+WAR combo, because the second PLD can hold adds just as well as a WAR and be a stunbot AND can DPS just about as good as a WAR. so yeah...huge imbalance there.

    and the short blip from Yoshi does not give me much hope right now for any (immediate) buffs to WAR. like, in a perfect environment I'd see the WAR has the high risk/high reward tank class or at least a viable bruiser OT, and everyone else generally agrees with this. however, right now WAR is just hard mode tanking with no reward, except maybe some epeen score.

    this actual angers and saddens me, since I love the concept of the WAR for tanking compared to your typical S&B tank. think I'm going to just switch to leveling DPS/Healer classes until I start seeing buffs for WAR or SE releases a new tank job. so PO'd right now...

    Edit: cooled off now. decided I'm going to stick with WAR until I've beaten Titan HM at least once with him, then just go work on the other classes while doing tome runs with my WAR.
