I got bored and saw FF11 on steam and decided to buy it because I've never played it. I'm currently level 15 with the Warrior job and things so far are going pretty smoothly.
The only thing that is bugging me, how the **** do I get better weapons and armor? Do I have to grind the crafts forever similar to FF14? I tried looking at the auction house but I only have a petty 2k gil. I'm still using the bronze sword and shell shield I got pretty early and they just aren't doing enough damage to keep going further and killing harder monsters. Any help here would be appreciated, and for what it's worth I'm on the Phoenix server.
