Question. How will you be leveling pup? In abyssea, or old school?
Mage and melee will come pretty easily, since VE melees so often, and because even if you are fighting really weak mobs when soulsoother cures you it read you as em+.
As Dustin said, especially since this will be your first 90.
STAY OUT OF ABYSSEA.
Career 99 PUP/WAR, and welcome my shiny new 99 DRK complete with empy smasher.
