How does this Whm/Bst work exactly? Follow

It sounds fun but what are the mechanics that go into it that make it so I'm not a level 60 white mage with a level 30 pet?

Charm success rate will depend on your bst's lvl not as sub.

meaning, you want bst main level equal to or higher than your whm level. If you leave it at subjob level, then your ability to charm mobs will be stuck at level 49.
Back in the day, I leveled whm, rdm, pld and something else to subjob level this way.

I'm actually rather curious how this could work for pets greater than level 99. I should go test it out.

I levelled several jobs as /BST back in the day, its pretty cool to see that people are still revisiting it after all these years!

Just one thing to add, remember that you will not gain access to leave until level 70, which changes the mechanics of how you play as /bst as opposed to bst quite a lot (Although with trusts, I doubt the lack of leave still poses the dangers it once did). I'm not sure whether you are still interested in /bst'ing your whm, or whether you have already finished, but I posted a short guide/journal of my experiences leveling thf/bst many years ago, it may offer anyone interested some insight into what this rare SJ combo was capable of insights into the mechanics of the combination: http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/forum.html?forum=262&mid=1202290411265166323#43

On another note Xilk! Its weird seeing names I recognise nowadays, I quit for several years and everyone was gone when I got back lol. Are you still on Bahamut?
