I restart my FFXI Draggon again recently.
It has been 6 years since i left my old dragoon @lv59 (Nettie@Lakshmi) because of long wait for party to exp.
I m back because FFXI is now ok to solo (l love to play in party, but cannot commit on steady online time, solo will be most of the case)
DRG is fun as great variety of subjob for different DRG. Therefore, I do planned a bit before i got/level my DRG.
Most of the time i do solo.
First, I level THF to 18 (i was wrong, i should get MNK first because Steal attack could only be useful on the first attack in solo)
Ask someone to help me to get subjob quest done
Then raise my RDM to 30 (I think for lv10-29, sub MNK is better than THF)
Make sure Dia and all bar-spell are ready, also, Deodorize, Sneak and Invisible are ready too
Get the DRK quest and level WAR with that stupid Great sword (i do get lv 12 by just slashing 100+ish mobs, i could level up more later)
Get DRG quest and also, make sure u got rank 2 in Sandy or Mission 2-3 in other area
I solo DRG quest with RDM (Sneak and Invisible are necessary for digging out your egg). The final dragon is easy for RDM.
Working on my DRG now. So far I got lv 36. In early levels (<20, i suggest DRG/Melee for quicker dmg because healing breath I is not useful). Also, /MNK with Boost is fun to chop EP mobs.
After lv 20 i got HB II and much better in solo.
After lv 30, i /THF for party (any melee u like) and i keep using RDM for solo.
After lv 40 u got HB III (which u start shining for /mage or /hybrid)
After lv 50 u should stick with /WAR for party (double attack)
After lv 60... hmm i don't know... see, /SAM (for WS), /WAR (for plain dmg) and even /DRK (for hybrid). But i heard /THF's SATA is gimp... nvm... will see after i ding Lv60
