So I finally started playing and I have chosen to be a tank so if anyone could give me any advice for tanking in FF I would be greatful, I really want to learn how to tank because I have always been to scared to start so if anyone could help me I would love you forever.

Best advice would be to thoroughly learn your skills and proper rotations and what stats effect your the most. Learn how to see and how to dodge telegraphs. There are many mechanics in the game so it will take some time to properly understand the class well. I would recommend joining a free company that is friendly and try to absorb their knowledge.

 

Most of all, don't rush. Just take your time and you will eventually be awesome at it.

Thank you so much for the reply ! 

Anytime! I may not be the most experienced but I hope my advice will get you started on the right path. I was primarily a healer in the end game content in FF14 so I only know so much about tanks.

Welcome to FFXIV! Sadly, I dont like how every class has a cast bar now so that bugs me a bit. However, AST is quite fun.

I have a Lvl 50 Dragoon as a DPS but not played him in a while.

In the beginning for a Gladiator you just have to rotate a Flash to pick up the mobs initially, a couple strikes another flash then you should be good to just do your Fast Blade > Savage Blade > Rage of Halone on individual mobs. Throw in another Flash now and then to gain threat on all the mobs.

Flash uses Mana which you don't have much of as a Glad/Pala. So if you replace Rage of Halone with Riot Blade it's additional effect will replenish a little mana. But doesn't increase your threat.

At 22 you get Provoke which can instantly pull back a mob you've lost threat on but is on Cooldown for a minute or so.

Later on you get a couple of interrupts like Shield Bash which also momentarily stuns a target a couple more DPS'y abilities.

By the time you're 50+ you'll be well versed in the other abilities and the +50 abilities have some decent utility like a mana replenishing shield, a heal, DPS ability.

Pala has numerous defence buffs as well for boss fighting all with long cooldowns. Basically it.

When exactly is a good time for people to start joining? Now, cause we can't rebuild the guild if no one is joining. This ball dosen't start rolling unless we start encouraging folks to participate. If we can help each other, even in a small part, then lets at least try.

I recommend joining on the Jenova server and if you want apply to another FC and our Linkshell so we can communicate. Request Kira Kyojin as a friend too as the current FC Master.

Maybe if we see enough people on via the chat we can reform the FC.
