The Jobs of Final Fantasy XIV

Update: This article is just a brief primer on jobs. Since the time of writing, I’ve found this guide. I recommend you head over and get yourself a copy as well. Not only does it have an insanely detailed chapter on the jobs, but an absolutely brilliant leveling guide as well (see my review). I so wish I had gotten that when I first bought the game – it would have saved me a lot of time (which could have been used to improve the design of this blog instead :))

Final Fantasy games have been a huge hit with gamers all around the world for many years now. Starting way back in the early days of gaming, role playing games were some of the first in-depth and complex games to hit the market. Typically consisting of heavy story elements and character progression to level up, role playing games have kept their popularity over the decades and remain widely popular today.
