Couple of more ideas:

-I think, every now and then, we should pick on a weak-to-medium monster and practice getting our chain attack and magic burst timing down

-it is recommended on GameFAQs to type party messages in CAPS during battle to get each others attention (because there will be so many messages scrolling by)

Interesting info on GameFAQs boards as to when to do parties and when to go solo:

quote:


There's plenty of things to do in this game solo, just not levelling or the higher Missions. It's quite possible to level by playing solo, but it's so painfully slow and tedious by comparison to partying that it's relatively useless. (Exception is an experienced Beastmaster, they can solo and have a blast doing it.)

Most quests, crafting, item collecting and such can be done solo. Actually, the majority of quests can't really be done by a party (don't need 6 people to screw in a light bulb or trade a zinc ore to an NPC.) Crafting is strictly solo, and item collecting is much easier solo.



So, as you can see, we won't be joined at the hip all the time to each other.

I can go monk, then beast tamer, the only problem with beast tamer, as what I saw in Star Wars, was that it will be a heavily aquired job by most people in the game to where they have to nerf the skill to the point that it is useless...

Beast Master is an advanced job, so you have to do a quest to obtain it.

Supposedly White Mage is the best lead in job for a Beast Master (due to increased Charisma), but they always suggest you use Beast Master as your main job if you're gonna go that route.

If you do that then the best path for you would be to start as a White Mage and level up to about level 8, then you could swap to a Monk. That way you can level up to a LVL18 Monk and then sub White Mage. You would then have Cure, Dia, and Paralyze and the MP with which to use them. Then at LVL30 you can Beastmaster out!!!

Plus White Mages are the bomb...and it fits your new avy.

Sounds like a good plan. That way, it really won't affect anything we do as a group (having two support magic users in battle would be a no-no).

Hopefully Otanku or Sephi will be an strong attack character to help out.

Let's hope that they will for sure be Black Mages or Warriors...or even Monks.

Sephi I think wanted to be a tataru(sp) and be a black mage, hopefully, that would be cool, having a bad ass magic user on our team...

I was thinking about weapon chains, magic bursts, and macros.

If we're clever, I believe we can come up with some coordinated macros that will allow us to pull off some weapons chains and magic bursts.

But we'll worry about that when we get to it.

Hey, I'm not playing it. I'm still at work. I'm just thinking about playing it.

I should be playing in about an hour or so, though, if anyone wants to look me up.

Just a little adjustment.
