I have recently re-purchased the game (seekers collection) and just created a Taru on Bahamut server (Brayden) named after my son). Long ago, I had a Taru by the name of Pjstock on the very same server, and in recent years made a return to the game on a new account (2009) before halting play in the same year. Much has changed within my personal life, and amidst new found responsibilities (new father), I am yet again returning and starting on a brand new account... I have already started a different thread in general that was aimed at general questions regarding the game, however, I have Beastmaster specific questions I'd like to ask and thought this thread would be more direct and in the appropriate forum for such questions. So here goes;
1) Somewhat a general one... I am going to focus on Beastmaster solely, however, I need a subjob to level, as well as an initial job with which to level in order to access Beastmaster to begin with. Out of the starting jobs, which would be the most effective solo to obtain level 30 and unlock Beastmaster (and Dancer)?
2) I have heard /DNC sub is more or less the way to go. Would this sub job be sufficient for all around solo gameplay as a Beastmaster? It looks good on paper to me, and I am considering unlocking it along side Beastmaster and going from there en route to 99...
3) I have read there has been improvements with jug pets since I last played. Back in the day, I solely solo leveled using charm and hardly ever touched jug pets (save for courier carrie sometimes). Has the tactics at which the Beastmaster solo's to cap changed? Are old camping grounds still viable? Are jug pets strong enough to level with now? If so, which ones would be good to get for the leveling process?
Additional information; I started in Windhurst (if that may impact the route on which to level at all).
Thanks for taking the time to read my questions!
