I appologise for this thread in advance as this question has already been asked countless times before but...

What Race/Job combo is most underused (from a newbs point of view) yet would be very useful?

It's just that I read the comments about starting as an elf and wondered what people would rather see more of in the game.

i.e mithra or hume / red mage

Thanks for your patience :)

I don't think there's any particular race or job that's generally seen alot more that others on the server. :)
You pick your race/job combo as you like - your race might not be the best suited for the job but if you'll have low str, you'll have advantages with other things.
And no matter what you decide to pick, you can always gear you items to boost a certain stat. :)

Attribute points for the race/classes combo

Attributes affect (not entirely sure on this one, but was told by a highlevel, assume he know what hes talking of :p):
Str: Dmg output
Dex: Accuracy (to hit)
Vit: Ability to take damage (dmg absorption)
Agi: Evasion (enemies missing)
Int: Magic Dmg output
Mnd: Healing spells effiency (sp?) / Magic Defense
Chr: Enmity (Hate) The more Chr the better you are at maintaining mobs attention (aggro)

All in all it comes down to playing what race/job you want to :)

I've seen Galka blm's, whm's and smn's, low MP pool but lots of HP :p

A lot tend to go Hume or Mithra, cause they get decent HP and MP, so you can try all jobs.

Elvaan is mostly a fighter, and thus doesnt fit too weel as blm/whm/smn/rdm. They make good tanks, with good dmg and a good amount of HP. Of oucrse both arent as high as a Galkas, but they get more of other stats :)

oh, and personally i chose Mithra cause of the good MP pool and still have a decent ability.

Besides that, they look god damn good :D

Be a taru White Mage and you will never go without a group. Though you will look rubbish and the first 10 levels or so will be hell.

To some extent they do.

eg. at lvl 70, a Mithra rdm has ~300 MP.

A Tarutaru rdm will have ~500 MP.

So, unlike daoc, race really does matter a LOT.

But as Stubby said, it aint all about being 1337, like daoc. I've seen lots of Galka casters lvl happily in grps that were killing fine.

hehe, yeah.

But for the love of all chocobos in the world, do not be a Galka.

I swear that some day a Choco will be crushed by a Galka sitting on it.

oh, and if you like your knees, dont choose Taru :clap:

Well, I deleted my char and am currently rerolling for aplace on bismarck.

I ended up creating a small hume monk. Don't ask me why, it seemed the next generic after a warrior but not an all out fighter.

Well, I've basically given up trying to join bismarck. It has started rolling arura every time for me but I refuse to join it on principle :)

I'll keep rolling until the first one other than Arura that I come to.

god dammit this is annoying.
