ARR - RT70 - Limsa Start - The Warrior Way V1.11
By Unholy_EveUnholy_Eve. Last updated
With 5.3 a lot of things changed, I'm not 100% on how this effects the Warrior route as WHM is hands down the quickest we currently have but I have tried to tidy this up a little bit!
Because of these changes some of the information here will be wrong, I've tried to remove what I know is no longer correct but there will be bits that have been missed and for that I am sorry.
For Warrior job quests you can pretty much skip them all, once you have that job crystal you're golden. If you have long queue times you can fit them in whilst waiting for dungeons/trials.
With starting on a preferred server you get 10 silver chocobo feathers, these alone will get you 3 pieces of your 130 gear, weapon, chest and pants. You will hit level 50 in Coerthas.
Speak to the Calamity Salvager-> deal in spoils->silver chocobo 1
You'll have 600 Poetics by the time you finish Prea to buy more armour, your right hand side you'll get from doing the MSQ.
The guide is still valid but currently with Healers being in demand White Mage is the much quicker route.
So this is my basic notes I've been working from whilst doing a few runs of ARR on a Road to 60 server (2x exp) as a Warrior. If not running as a Warrior ignore those steps and factor in you're own class/job quests.
The first few hours will be very tight on money as there's a lot of Teleporting to Summerford and Limsa, grab money rewards when short on Gil otherwise grab gear improvements.
Finish mini Tutorial
For PC players you can log out here (but not pause the timer) to the main title screen and copy across character data to setup hot bars ect. You will take a time hit here of a couple of minutes or worse if the world is full and you hit the login queue.
