Hey all, I'm returning to the game after a two-year hiatus, and I'm looking for an open social LS with friendly members who're willing to give an occasional hand to a relative noob. In the immediate future I'm looking to get the 2nd limit break quest done, and start collecting my PLD AF set. I know the rules have changed quite a bit over the years for PLDs, so anyone who'd be willing to give me advice on getting back into the swing of things would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
As someone whose only job at 99 is PLD, I can tell you we're not as accepted as we once were. It's virtually impossible for PLD to tank in Abyssea due to the fact that melees can hit the hate cap so easily. However, that doesn't make us entirely useless.
My best advice to you is keep your weapons skilled up (sword, great sword, staff, club, even dagger and polearm), and consider leveling Dancer as a subjob. As far as an LS goes, I believe Shadowsong has one for new/returning players. They'll probably be along shortly to offer you a pearl. Edited, Jul 9th 2012 10:01am by Ralrra
