Create your character.
Start on the Cerberus server.
Choose your starting class.

Now, this is very important... what kind of combat do you prefer?

Pugilist/Lancer/Rogue - melee fighting, moves are used in specific orders, and when done from certain positions (behind enemy, flank of enemy) you get bonuses.

Archer - ranged DPS, very fun.

Thaumaturge - black mage, spells take a few seconds to charge before casting, very tricky, but rewarding.

Arcanist - essentially a Pokemon trainer, your Carbuncle.fights for you while you cast additional attack/heal spells.

Gladiator - sword and shield, your job is to keep enemy aggro on you, not the party.

Marauder - same as Gladiator, but with a 2-handed axe.

Conjurer - healing class, my current main.

Then just play...

I also got TeamSpeak3 working last night, so we have that too.

Since you seen me play MAG you should know how I operate. I am the type of person who runs in and gets the job done. I get up close and personal with the enemy and take them down so fast they are wondering why they are respawning. One of the reasons why I like FFX so much is that Tidus is such a perfect character. He was fast, did a nice amount of damage in battle and just felt right. So if you can put him in a job, then give me.

Oh, something to note. When it comes to MMO's I only like using swords and melee. I am not a fan of magic, axes, daggers, none of that. I am picky but it suits the type of player I am. I probably will not get to play till next week since I am going to be busy with work.

Then you're shit out of luck, son.

Want swords and melee? GLADIATOR is for you, then. But as a Tank class, you deliver small damage, but attract LOTS of aggro, which is fine as your HP and DEF is so high. You are effectively the guy who shouts "COME AT ME, BRO!" while everyone else does the damage. That said, you are ALWAYS the focus of the healer, because no Tank = party wipe.

Want lots of damage and melee? LANCER, PUGILIST AND ROGUE SAY HI. However, spears, big metal spiky fists, and twin slashing daggers also say hi. No swords here. But who needs swords when you're dishing out death so fast the enemies don't realise they're already dead. Lancer and Pugilist require specific positioning to be effective, whereas Rogue is basically Rikku but not annoying as shit.

ARCHER is really fucking fun, and very underrated. Really need to play this class more...

Also, each class can "upgrade" to a more defined job...

Gladiator lvl30 + Conjurer lvl15 = PALADIN
Marauder lvl30 + Gladiator lvl15 = WARRIOR
Pugilist lvl30 + Lancer lvl15 = MONK
Conjurer lvl30 + Arcanist lvl15 = WHITE MAGE
Thaumaturge lvl30 + Archer lvl15 = BLACK MAGE
Archer lvl30 + Pugilist lvl15 = BARD
Arcanist lvl30 + Thaumaturge lvl15 = SUMMONER
Arcanist lvl30 + Conjurer lvl15 = SCHOLAR
Lancer lvl30 + Marauder lvl15 = DRAGOON
Rogue lvl30 + Pugilist lvl15 = NINJA

More roles coming, including Dark Knight (giantsword tank), Machinist (gun based DPS) and Astrologian (card based healer) in the expansion soon.

Then, there's the three gathering classes (Miner, Botany, Fishing) and the crafting classes (Blacksmith, Carpenter, Armourer, Goldsmith, Leatherworker, Weaver, Alchemist, Culinarian)

Dark knight seems to be Auron.

I think I am either gonna go towards monk, ninja, or Paladin. I would put Dark Knight in the Paladin spot but it isn't out yet.

For a starter, I would recommend Rogue, as you will learn the basics of combos, do fuckloads of damage, and not have to worry about being responsible for positioning, keeping aggro, or keeping people alive.

You will learn the rest as you progress.

Got til May before Dark Knight lands...

Not really, but with Pugilist and Lancer, certain moves need to be executed from certain places, usually from the rear or from the side, to be really effective.

Rogue does not have any of this.

Combos are easy but remembering positioning can be a ballache.

Plus, Ninja is a cool class.

I'll take your word for it. What is a good gathering and crafting class and can those be changed? I was thinking of doing miner and blacksmith.

If you look at my sig, you will see that just on your one character, you can do ALL of the things.

Gathering and crafting is a WHOLE other ball game, and work VERY different to the actual fighting classes. The problem you'll have at the start if you choose Rogue, is you will be "locked" on your continent until about level 15, where you unlock travel to the other continent.

See, Limsa Lominsa is its own continent. Ul'Dah and Gridania are another, linked continent. The starting job you take determines where you start.

Rogues start in Limsa. The Miners Guild is in Ul'Dah. I think the Blacksmith Guild is in Limsa though...

Either way, about two or three hours in, you'll journey to the other continents, and then you're set.

Also, you cannot change your classes until you complete the level 10 quest for your first class. At that point, you can join ALL the guilds without needing to level up.

Seems like 50 is the max level for everything.
