I stopped playing about 2 years ago. Levelled DNC to about 50 on my old character. I've started up again about 2 months ago, but with a new account, making DNC my first/main job this time around, playing a Mithra, just hit level 60.
First question, subs. 2 years ago, NIN was the only sub of choice due to Dual Wield, now that is a native trait, is this still the case? I have not unlocking so far, and I never particularly enjoyed levelling anyway, plus the cost of tools/spells. Up to about 50 I was fulltiming /THF, due to falling lucky and getting a Dagger Belt, for the extra skill. Now I've swapped over to WAR, and I am levelling SAM up as well. Will these 3 subs be sufficient (WAR, THF, SAM), or is there anything else I should consider also?
Next to equipment. As I said, this a new character, and 60 is my highest job, so I'm on a bit of a budget. I hear everyone makes money out of Abyssea these days. I do have access, but key leeching is out of the question, because I don't yet have any Cruor to buy keys with to go leech, so I can't go earn any Cruor, until I have a job high enough to contribute.
But I digress.
Currently in, full AF on body slots, 2x Bone Knife +1, War Hoop, Dancer's Torque, Harvest Earring, Heims Earring, Unyielding Ring, Garrulous Ring,Jaguar Mantle, Potent Belt.
I've got Amemet Mantle for lvl 61, and I'm getting a Chivalrous Chain as soon as I can afford it. What should I be looking at for my next dagger upgrade? Is it worth getting any other armour on the way up to 75? Or just wait for the pink stuff and eventually AF3?
Lastly, food. Do people even bother with it anymore? Personally so far I've been using Meat Mithkabobs or Rice Dumplings. Have done most of my levelling in Crawler's Nest, and hardly anyone uses anything. Had a couple of solo bouts to stay on top of Dagger skill ups. Although even that's a bit tricky, they moved the beetles out of the basement in Garlaige Citadel for some 90ish ones, they would have been nice solo fodder for 60ish.
Thanks in advance for any help/advice/words of wisdom/cookies. :)
