      It can definitely be overwhelming. Luckily the community is generally extremely helpful and people don’t mind answering questions. Glad it helped!

    Hey Accomp! I think it’s worth highlighting to beginners the fact that, whenever you’re gaining XP, you should always have some kind of food or drink effect active – even if it’s the cheapest vendor stuff or freebies from quests that don’t buff relevant class stats.

    Reason being, the 3% XP gain may sound small, but should really be looked at as a 3% saving in your time. If it takes you 100 hours to level from 1-50, that’s literally three hours of your life back that you can spend… doing something else in FFXIV! If you intend to level multiple jobs, especially crafting/gathering, it adds up to quite a significant saving.

    I highlight this because a lot of characters don’t bother with food while soloing and they should, if only for the XP bonus. It’s worth checking you have a food effect on just before you hand any quests in!

    Same for Black Mage. I thought this was 30 Thaurmatage, 15 Pugilist

    • Accomp says:

      Yeah, there’s been speculation (maybe with the leaked info?) about the job dependencies changing. I’ll be sure to update once it’s confirmed in Phase 4.

    This guide states Dragoon requires LNC / MRD, but I believe that it is LNC / PGL.
