Okay, so this thread has been viewed 167 times without a single response. I thought I'd give an update. In the past 2+ weeks I've taken both PLD and DRK to 99 and, right now, wish to focus on DRK as a kind of main job that I'll look to improve my gear for and pour merits into, etc. I've actually got a pretty decent amount of merits in already as well. No noteworthy gear to speak of, but I have gotten myself to rank 6 so that I can do dynamis and ZMs and I have gotten a few atmas and familiarized myself with the generals of abyssea. If anyone has room in a casual LS that randomly does things together please send me a PM or /tell in game to Jacan.
