So, I'm thinking about picking this game up. I need a game to kill time. First, I'll say what my priorities are in the game:
- I like playing a dedicated healer
- I'm most interested in playing the Esper from everything I've read.
- I want to PvP heal and PvE heal when I get to endgame, and from what I understand, you get two "specs" to quickly switch between, so I'm assuming I'll want to make one spec for PvP healing and one for PvE healing right?
So, in regards to that last point, am I pretty screwed on that plan considering the leveling to endgame situation? I currently don't have a guild or any friends rolling a char with me, and even if I did, I like to just get on and level and not wait an hour for a friend or guildie my level to join me... Unless this game is radically different, solo leveling as a healer won't be viable. So what is my best option? Should I roll some esper dps leveling build (I can google that I suppose, unless you have a suggestion), get to 50, and then do some kind of respeccing both specs to healing and start healing then (guessing I'll have to buy healing gear to start then?).
I'm probably way off, but you all get where I'm trying to go with this. The only exception I could've thought of is if there is some very active LFG system where it's easy to find group PvE and then I could just stay a healer leveling. From all of the vids/streams I watched though, seems like everyone is just solo questing to 50 (by the way, when does grouping really start happening, is that at 50, or is everyone else grouping at some earlier level for pve content?).
I will end up getting a guild eventually, but most of the time they're pointless until endgame.
Also, what do you suggest in regards to crafting/gathering? I read one person say every esper should pickup tailoring to build themselves an outfit, another person said pickup two gathering so you can afford your mount.
