So I have access to a defunct friends account for quite some time. However, all he has is a Galka Mnk 75.....not helpful at all xD I just AH camp with him/bazaar etc mostly.
However he has a mule that was his "mage" mule with a hume with whm32, rdm8, blm26, smn 23 (originally going to be whm/blm and whm/smn).
I have always wished i had a mage to 2xbox with as Thf+mage=powa to do TONS of stuff i cant do without help right now. However, I have never wanted to go through the hassle of getting through missions/bs/random junk to actually make it useable in all areas. The account also only has up to TAU.
Anyway, long story short, with the uncapping of missions etc, "catching up" with a mule char is not nearly as daunting. Also leveling is not nearly as painful thanks to abyssea. So I am contemplating buying the additional expansions and leveling some mage on his hume mule, get him into abyssea/all zones etc and go to town as thf/nin+Mage support to 2xBox a TON of stuffs.
Should i do this, what mage(and sub(s)) should i level. What mage job/sub would you guys think is the most helpful to a low-man thf? Whm? Rdm? maybe even sch now that they get haste/convert etc? I have no plans on leveling multiple jobs on it, so whats the best all-around mage you would want in your back pocket?
