Hey everyone starting this soon and wanted to play a THF. What subjobs are good? Should I level warrior to 45 then THF?

Ninja, Warrior and Dancer should be your main subs to shoot for.

Others have situational use as well, but you should be fine with those to start.

Monk will probably be the easiest job to start out with leveling to 18 to unlock your subjob and then to 30 to gain access to advanced jobs like Ninja and DNC.

Warrior would be ok as well. I'd start as a Monk though. THF/MNK using hand to hand is likely the most powerful you can be at low levels.

Couple of THF notes:

Dagger won't really be worth using until you gain access to the weapon skill "Viper Bite" at level 33 but always keep dagger skill capped up to your level. Hand to hand, and Sword are your best options until then. I prefer /MNK Hand to Hand.

Use crossbows and keep your marksmanship skill leveled. This will be very helpful throughout your THF career.

The most important one at lv 90 will be ninja. war and dancer have their place, but you will most often find yourself /nin.

You can do something like:
Mnk> to 18~24ish (unlock subjob)
War/mnk>49 (unlock advanced jobs etc once 30. Get familiar with how stuff works, make some money etc)
Nin/war>49
Dnc/nin>49 (Dagger will be skilled up and waiting for you at thf 33 so you can use sword/h2h on thf at low levels)
Thf>90 (/dnc for solo, /war or /nin for party etc)

That would be my sorta 'ideal' path. You will never have to backtrack to do subjobs, you will have them all available for thf, but this is just an optimized deal. But of course were people not robots. That is a rather long time to wait to even start playing your desired job.

With that in mind, so long as you level those at some point, you will be fine. You just might have to backtrack and finish off subjobs at a later point which is annoying, but not the end of the world. Sometimes you need that change of pace anyway.

I see, thats a downer, I was hoping for ninja to not be the best. I know that utsusemi ichi and ni were a ton of money awhile ago.

As a situational sub, I have found /sam to be useful as well. If you aren't /nin for the extra tier of dual wield, and you aren't /dnc for the curing, haste samba, etc., /sam should perform "on par" with /war. I use "on par" loosely, they at least aren't far apart. /sam offers +15 stp, and a 1 shadow move every minute (I know, lol, but can be useful sometimes), and meditate. And Sekkanoki.... This is very nice when you have finished proccing blue/red/grellow and you are just zerging the last of the mobs hp. I find I generally am WSing at 120-175 tp just due to the sheer speed at which I attack (as thf, not /sam), it is ridiculous.

If we get at least Dual Wield III (It looks like we will) somewhere between 90 and 99 /WAR,/DNC, SAM etc will all be better DD subs but /NIN will still be king for things where you need more defense.
