Hello! I've returned to ffxi after a rather long absence, so I am used to being a whm in the old party set-up. Today I participated in my first alliance for GoV. It was very, very fast-paced, and I got a few levels in the time it once would have taken to get one. (I love that!) However, while I was the only whm in the group, there were several others with healing abilities of various sorts. Without those others, I don't think we'd have gotten very far.
I went through mana very quickly (level 25) and had to recover mana during fights, more often than not. Maybe I should level cooking enough to have some helpful juices on hand... Any other advice?
I found targeting alliance members efficiently impossible. (Party members were no problem to target.- I used the f1-6 keys) Although I put <stal> in my cure macros, I still ended up having to tab through all targets to get to members not in my party. Needless to say, it was time-consuming. Any advice?
Thanks so much!
