I finally got around to leveling a /DNC subjob and decided that I want to level the job up slowly over time. I play mage jobs, but I wanted to level a melee job that I could use for solo tanking. Dancer seems like a lot of fun and probably one of the few melee oriented jobs that I might enjoy.
I am currently level 46 and have been using daggers primarily because my skill is capped thanks to RDM. As we all know, dagger WS's outside of THF main are weak before Dancing Edge. I've heard a few conflicting pieces of advice. Some have said to drop H2H in the early levels, others at lv50 and some have suggested going H2H until Dancing Edge becomes available. I wanted to hear what the DNC community thought on the issue. I do not have any H2H merits (but full dagger merits) and plan on leveling through GoV/FoV. I know that I could hop into an Abyssea party and open chests but I want to get used to soloing on the job and it really is something I plan on doing slowly over time.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
