I reactivated my account last week after being gone for a year (when the cap was still 75 and there were no magian trials) and want to have BLU as my main job I play. I've already hit 90, gotten almost all the merits I need, got all the trigger spells I didn't have for weaknesses, getting the spells above 75, have two atma slots, one refresh atma, etc. So, basically, I'm set to go for bigger and better things.
I have a few questions:
-How can I tell if I've actually accepted a Magian trial? I got two Sideswords from the moogle, but I'd like to know if I'm actually on the quest before I go and camp some NMs.
-If I ran across those NMs for the magian weapon trials in Nyzul Isle, would they count there?
-Is two attacks 2-4 times swords a bad idea for a Chain Affinity spamming build? Offhand only?
-Are NIN and THF the only "viable" subjobs still? Does anyone use /RDM, and in what kind of situations would I use it? I'm finding it very hard to run out of MP in Abyssea with only a 5mp/tic refresh atma so far. Applications outside Abyssea? Does anyone still do anything outside Abyssea anyway?
-Any other advice? I'm going to try to find some people on Siren to do Abyssea with as I currently do not have a linkshell.
Thanks for any help you could give me.
