I finally got back last night. Started working on NIN to get it to 49 from 37. I got 40 last night doing FoV while seeking and in a party. Had some cool people in it which was nice to see for a change. The boost in XP is really **** nice. Looking forward to getting NIN done so I could start working on my RDM sub for BLM.
I'm still not sure what to level as a melee. There's my DRG but I keep reading how sick MNK and NIN are for low man Abyssea which is what I'll be doing with my friends. I'm doing BST first to do solo farming, BLM second since it's nice to have around, then I'm not sure between DRG, MNK, or NIN. Don't want to go too crazy with jobs since I'd like to gear them up in a reasonable amount of time. Plus I can't play as much as I did before.
So, anyone want to chime in on DRG, MNK, and NIN in Abyssea? My low man group has 1 guy with MNK and NIN available, another guy with every mage class at 90, and then there's me with BST, BLM, and DRG all at 75 until I get Abyssea on the 16th. After that I plan on hitting 90, capping any merits I'm missing, and then start farming AF3.
