The Warrior in FFXIV is the perfect class for players interested in starting a new job, as it has damage-dealing abilities, self-healing properties, and tanking capabilities.
Gamers are invited to indulge themselves in the persistent world of Eorzea in this popular video game, Final Fantasy XIV (FFXIV).
As its name suggests, this game is part of the classic Final Fantasy series, and as such, you may encounter similar gameplay and mechanics throughout the series.
Unlike its predecessors, FFXIV is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), which means that you can enjoy its content with other players.
Before you step into the fictional realm, you have to create and customise a character. You can select your character’s facial expressions, name, gender, body markings, and class. One of the characters in the game is the Warrior.
How to pick a class and job in FFXIV
Since there are currently 20 jobs in the Final Fantasy Endwalker expansion, players may struggle to choose the correct FFXIV class. Fortunately, you can take on any job with one character.
While creating a character, it is recommended that you start by selecting your starting role. Players can become a supportive healer, a resilient tank, or a mighty damage-dealer.
If you choose to become a damage dealer, you can decide whether you want to become a melee, physical, or magic damage-dealer.
Bear in mind that healers and tanks are in much higher demand, as they have a big responsibility on their shoulders.
With a powerful greataxe and amazing self-healing capabilities, the Warrior is considered one of the most overpowered jobs in FFXIV. Warriors can use solo parts of raids while protecting their allies from fatal attacks. They can handle almost anything, which makes them the best tanks in the game.
The Warrior can also deal massive amounts of damage to its targets. Their unique talents allow them to shine in practically every situation, which makes it a perfect choice for any player who wants to pick up a new role or job.
Unfortunately, you cannot become a Warrior initially, as you have to go through a prerequisite class. Players who are interested in becoming a Warrior should select Marauder as their starting class.
If you do not pick the Marauder as your starting class, you can unlock it by going to Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks and speaking to Blauthota. You then have to complete the Way of the Marauder quest to become a Marauder.
From here, players have to reach level 30 to specialise in the Warrior job. After reaching level 30 with the Marauder class, you can talk to Wyrnzoen in the Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks to receive the Pride and Duty quest.
Players must complete the quest to unlock the Soul of the Warrior soul crystal and become a Warrior. From this point onward, you have to earn experience points to level up until you reach level 90.
This can take many hours and effort, but luckily, there are numerous ways to speed up the process.
How to level up your Warrior quickly
Players should note that power levelling is no good if they are still trying to complete main scenario quests. Following the quest line using the first class you levelled is the fastest and most efficient way to reach the maximum level.
If you are levelling your second class or job, it is advised that you use experience buffs. On their own, these buffs may not offer much, but they multiple them for additional experience. Players can consume Antelope Steak before battle to receive an experience buff.
Furthermore, you can activate a buff from your Free Company, take advantage of Rested Experience, and use items with experience bonuses. These items include, but are not limited to, the Moogle Cap, Helm of Light, Brand-new Ring, and Friendship Circlet.
Since Warriors excel in all roles, you should use the following basic rotations in every battle:
|Basic area-of-effect rotation||Players should begin with the overpower ability before casting Mythril Tempest||It increases your Beast Gauge and damage dealt while hitting targets|
|Basic single target rotation||· Heavy swing – Maim – Storm’s Path
· Heaving swing – Maim 0 Storm’s Eye
|Concluding the rotation with Storm’s Path increases your Beast Gauge and restores some health. Finishing the rotation with Storm’s Eye provides some extra damage|
Although equipment is a simple feature, understanding it, how to use it, and what to pair it with can impact your gameplay significantly. The Warrior’s recommended equipment is:
- Weapon: Asphodelos War Hammer
- Head: Augmented Radiant’s Helm of Fending
- Body: Asphodelos Chiton of Fending
- Hands: Augmented Radiant’s Gauntlets of Fending
- Legs: Augmented Radiant Cuisses of Fending
- Feet: Augmented Radiant’s Sabatons of Fending
- Earrings: Asphodelos Earrings of Fending
- Necklace: Augmented Radiant’s Choker of Fending
- Bracelets: Augmented Radiant’s Bracelet of Fending
- Left Ring: Asphodelos Ring of Fending
- Right Ring: Augmented Radiant’s Ring of Fending
