Sorry, I can't help. Still no Playstation. Won't be here for a while yet, since Sony sucks.
As for gear, leveling from 1-50ish, gear isn't that important simply because there isn't anything gamebreaking available to anyone.
48 for Life Belt. Any melee without one needs to die. kthx. (And I used to see them all the time. -.-)
At 50, Crow gear comes along for BRD/BST/BLU/COR/DRG/MNK/PLD/PUP/RDM/SMN/THF/WHM. It's a GREAT set for WHM, and it's the best thing for DRGs who end up exping on Crawlers and other piercing weak mobs. (In our static, I was soooooo glad when Celisse got this. We were big on Dragonflies and Crawlers in the Nest.) Also good for MNK/COR, and occasionally BLU and THF while pulling.
Also hysterically leet for BST, and great for BRD (Minus body, helo thar Gaudy.)
51, mages grab staves. Do I need to say more?
59, Scorpion Harness for most melees. And I guess 60 for Byrnie, but nobody uses that piece of crap anymore except dummies. Although the HQ is pretty hawt in lieu of Haubergeon later on down the line for sushi whores.
Other than that stuff, and the obviously good endgame gear, what is there that is gamebreaking? Seer's is great and all, but it's not a large enough boost in anything for it to be considered manditory, in my opinion. I used it for my WHM for a while, but I ended up not taking it out of storage the next time I leveled simply because it wasn't good enough to waste the space on. (And I had some RSE sitting around, but meh.)
Edit: High-five for Nor and anyone else who uses 100 post view!
