So I have been playing FFXI on and off for years now. I have never been a very hardcore player and I was never really into endgame events because of the time-consumption, among other things. I am a full-time student, I have a part-time job and am married, so I don't really have a lot of time to seek party and do LS events and the like. I have been in Dynamis and Abyssea shells and I find it is a little too business-like for me and I really enjoy the game most when I solo challenging fights and the like.
That being said, I do want to go back and finish pre-Abyssea content such as missions and quests that I was never able to see. However, I am also a little greedy and would like to solo everything that I can in Abyssea as well, seeing as how I am only on for two, maybe three days a week for a only a few hours each day. I'm mainly talking about AF3 gear +1 and +2 in terms of what I would like to solo in Abyssea.
I have done my fair share of research and have found tons of different answers from tons of different people on which job can solo the most content overall. I know that each and every job is situational and what a NIN can solo in Abyssea, a BST may not be able to, and vice versa. But I'm looking for the job that is going to allow me to solo the most content overall. Missions and quests from older content as well as Abyssea NMs for AF3 +1 and +2, as I said before.
My signature is VERY outdated, so I won't include it, but the only job I have at 99 is SAM, which is not fully merited. Other than that I have DNC at 80, DRK at 75, WAR at 70 and NIN at 60. I believe those are my highest jobs. Any information would be greatly appreciated, and I have no objection to leveling any particular class. I enjoy mages, tanks and DDs all the same. Thank you very much in advance for any information.
