Spent my long flight yesterday getting back into FF Theaterhythm on iPad. Such a fun game. Will try to get in some FFXIV tonight, get to spend all day tomorrow writing proposals. Blech.
How have things been going with your Thaumaturge? Does he get to become a Black Mage at some point, or do you have to play that class up to a certain level to unlock the class for another character?
Yep, Thaum eventually becomes a Black Mage...though I doubt I'll get that far with it. Found that I didn't particularly enjoy playing that class. However, I'll need to get him to at least level 34, as there are a couple cross-class skills that will be very helpful for my White Mage.
Decided that trying to focus on multiple classes wasn't the best choice, as I ended up getting too distracted. I'm going to focus on finishing my Animus weapon and getting Aural gear for my Bard (both of which involve a crazy long grind), as well as leveling my White Mage (even if I'm not a particularly good healer). I've starting fiddling with a couple crafting classes, but mainly just so I can check off a few more things on the weekly quest log and earn some extra gil. Doubt I'll ever get serious about it.
