Grettings all,

I am currently dabbling in the trial, and so far I like what I see, but I found mysef on diablos, and there isnt much there playerbase wise that Ive seen..

Now back in the day, I spent quite a few years on FFXI - Bahamut, then moved to WoW back in 2006 and been playing ever since.

But WoW has become quite repetative, and Im not holding my breath that "Legion" will be any different..

I am however tight on funds, and my first question is, is Heavensward absolutely inperative to the first timer? or can I get a good start without it? (no sense in spending the $50 if I dont have to yet)

Secondly, which server should I go to before I get too involved in my character on Diablos? Ive heard some good things about Cactaur, but other server opinions will be helpful too..

Thirdly, I know that you can get pretty much all the way to endgame without having to group, with the expection of the occasional group quest or dungeon, but I like to have some sort of interactivity with the masses, so is there a "Linkshell" on Cactaur I might be able to join up with? or whatever the "Guild" system if in FFXIV.

My ultimate goal will be to tank (Paladin) and also DPS (was a hell of a DRG back in my FFXI days) which classes should I level to make both of those a possibility?

An advice would be awesome, thank you in advance..

With the exception of the Au Ra race, the Heavensward expansion offers absolutely nothing to a new player. Literally all the rest of the expansion content is for level 50+. You physically can't even go to the expansion zones or unlock the new jobs until then. Unless you really want to make your character an Au Ra you can hold off on getting the expansion until level 50.

Even then, one of the Fantasias you get just for existing can take care of that when he finally does pick up the expansion.
