Hi guys! I am returning to the game after about a year of being absent... i am having to start COMPLETELY over and this time around am wanting to do some work with THF.

I am eventually going to run pld/nin/war but I thought having thf leveled would be a nice job to have around.

ANYWAYS

My question to you badasses out there who are current with the game is:


Realistically - how long would it take to level thf from 1 - 30?

I am going to start out as a WAR and bring it to 18 and get my subjob and then bring THF/WAR up to 30; so that I can get NIN and PLD jobs....

THF is only useful leveled. It will just cost you Gil. Instead do mnk to 18 then war and pld and nin. Will save you time a mmoney.

coolin man - thanks for the info: I am planning on taking thief up pretty high - to help wtv LS i get into as well as with AF armor etc. when it comes time for my main's to wear it.

I was just wanting a realistic timeline of how long it would take to get thf up to lvl 30... i know they implemented FOV pages to be used as many times as possible now as well as higher xp on EP and DC's so Im not sure how things run these days. Starting the game back up on Monday so I guess Ill just have o wait till then.

cheers!

I guess it should take it around 15h? I actually cheated when i leved my dnc sub 1-30 by using a PL lol. Was hardly necessary, but i had haste full time hehe. Also if you have a chance to team up with someone, do it, it should increase kill speed quite a bit (free SA~). The last advice is actually doing mnk sub instead of war. THF/MNK and using h2h is much better than using daggers right up until you get viper bite. Which you won't even use with abyssea lol. But well, could be annoying to level both war and nin later tho lol.

Sucks i deleted my char. when i quit last time.... I guess ima need to make friends fast - lvl 30 you can hop in aby right?

And Im gonna just have to grind it out.... sucks lol - but oh well - ill just be happy to be back in the game.

I hate MNK and wont lvl it though.... Im gong thf/war till i can go thf/nin;

But for real, thanks for the info Laphine - 15 hrs doesnt sound to bad; you made that estimate, im assuming, without using a PL correct?

Yeah lv30 is abyss time, and estimated without a PL. I can't really remember exactly how long it took to level my sub. But it did take me a day lol.

On the mnk idea, you don't even need to level it too high. Level 10 is enough. Actually level 5 is good (boost). But at 10 you get some protection from counter. And i gotta say: SA+combo = awesome~. If you are set on not using mnk (and h2h) then the next best thing are swords. Daggers are lackluster from 1-33.

If you are solo Daggers are lack luster until Dancing Edge. At 33 they only become interesting with someone to SATA onto.

Hth with Combo is nice at low levels.

Last time I leveled a mule up, it took about 6 hours to get from 1-18 on a no subjob unskilled mule. With no gil to speak of you are pretty much gonna be nekkid with only a starting weapon. Be sure to look up the new beginning player quests, you get some basic food, an XP ring and a couple hundred gil from doing them. plus a RR earring you can use at level 1.

I know its a late response but I would suggest going to Gusgan Mines around level 14 and ask to join the alliance. FoV and level sync changed how you level. I was soloing FoV and it took around roughly 12 hours to get my jobs from 9-35. I thought that was pretty good then I was invited to Gusgan Mines and joined an alliance. In the 2 1/2 hours my war went from 24-41. Was getting 11k exp an hour. I have noticed that there is usually a party/alliance going there. Do page 1 of FoV = Kill 6 members of the skeleton family once it maxes out its 1350 exp a page! I am sure if organized well enough you could get 20k an hour if you had 3 full time pullers pulling non-stop,

I have been doing this alot lately since returning to the game, started sept 15 and leveled my war to 30 in about a 8-10 hour time span, since I was starting from scratch, sold crystals on the ah 3-4 k each on lakshami and within no time I had 2 sets of gear, level 7 leather vest, and the level 10 scale armor set which you can use for almost all the jobs and then upgrade 30+ so your not completely gimp most of the time. I also sold armor from rank 1 conquest points they range from 5-10, I check the ah and see which one cost the most and I buy it naturally, sell and start building some Gil up for later levels. All the armor on lakshami 20-60 usually cost 20-40 10-40k good-flashy , like a pare of bettle earrings +1 compared to evasion earrings at 29.

Sorry about the rambling but this is what I did and it seems like the best way to me starting from scratch,
At the current moment I have a 55 war , 60 bst, and currently in a party at crawlers nest leveling my thf 58 now, comming up on 59. 60 is dancing edge so stoked!,,

And on another note, open up the job dancer and level it to 30, IMO hands down best subjob via ability to save tp to 300 before a tough fight and be able to keep yourself up with your 70hp heal every 5 seconds, I always try to do this after an auto attack to maximize dps. Fights will be longer because no use of weaponskills. Oh yeah you can duel wield at 20 ;w;!!!!

Ramble ramble
