Red Mage

Introduction

When I started playing FFXI mid-last year (2007), I never imagined I could get so utterly hooked on a game! Six months after I started, my RDM hit 75, and another six months later, well nothing has changed.

Anyway, this page is just to post up some data about my beloved RDM-- goals, gear set-ups, wishlist, and so on, as well as some general information and thoughts about my RDM.

Support Jobs

Currently I have eight available support jobs:

  • WHM White Mage
  • BLM Black Mage
  • NIN Ninja
  • SMN Summoner
  • WAR Warrior
  • SAM Samurai
  • DRG Dragoon
  • SCH Scholar

In my never-ending quest to better my character (however slow progress may be >_>;), I wish to level the following jobs, either for their usefulness endgame, or just for fun:

  • DRK Dark Knight, for Stun, of course.
  • THF Thief, because I recently decided that I hate farming with a gimp sub.
  • PLD Paladin, for super defensive happy fun times.
  • BLU Blue Mage, see Paladin, plus solo.

White Mage Support-job

White Mage was my first support job. For some reason, I really liked leveling it, and plan on one day taking it to 75.

Wishlist

Oh my, where do I start? I want to restart my RDM melee stint again, which means I'll need a lot of gear. I had a few pieces to help with skilling up, but sold those when my inventory started overflowing (this was before I thought to make a mule ._.; ).

Besides melee, I want some pieces to compliment my casting, MP pool, and so on.

  • Joyeuse. No explanation required. GOT! :D Big thanks for Logulugu and Balthamos for camping with me for milennia on end, and also to Killina and Opinyu for coming in at the end for the kill.
  • Scorpion Harness +1, mainly because it's one of the best melee body pieces a RDM can equip.
  • Got! (Lent one from my in-game buddy, Logulugu).

There are probably many more thing that I have neglected to mention in my rush to think of everything I want, but I'll check back here periodically for updates!
