How do you store all the equipment for so many high level jobs? Have they loosened on that in the last few years?

That's my struggle right now - inventory space.  I have a lot of gear sitting on my two retainers and my personal inventory is pretty full right now, too.  For now, I've been passing on gear that I don't have a class/job for (mainly warrior/monk/rogues atm) and a lot of stuff can be used by a type rather than being job specific - so WHM/AST/CNJ/SCH can all use the same gear more or less, so it makes it easy to keep and share.  The individual slots in the armor inventory go up to 35 for each slot but even with that I have trouble.  I basically just told myself that if it wasn't pink/green/blue and/or untradeable, then I was going to either sell it or convert it to materia if I could.  For classes leveling up, I'd either use what I had if I could, or buy gear.  *shrug*  There's no other way to do it, IMO.

In more news no one cares about, I got my SAM to 70, my RDM is 61, and my AST is 41. It's crazy easy to level a healer but I need to get to 50 to really takes advantage of the roulettes. I'd level even faster on a tank but refuse to play one right now so the DRK is only 35. I haven't been on my DRG (41) or MCH (30) in a while, since they can only do class quests or the leveling roulette at this time.  Part of me feels like I'm behind on things since FC mates are doing Pagos but I haven't even opened that area yet. And part of me is happy to just do my own thing when I feel like it, no pressure.

I solved my inventory space issues by getting rid of all gear under level 50. That's the level when the item level takes a huge jump so anything under that isn't worth storing. I'll just buy any gear I need until then.

I finally got my squadron up in level enough to do command quests with them, meaning I can use NPCs to fill out a party. That's how I leveled the DRK a bit. It's a neat game mechanic actually, just takes some time sending them off on missions (18 hours to complete) or doing skill training (1 hour to complete).

I downloaded this as a free trial on PS4. Hoping that learning to use the controller won't take too long to 'get.' I messed around with a controller on FFXI since technically that was a port, but the keyboard was much quicker with hotkeys rather than menu scrolling - however, the slower pace of FFXI didn't put menu scrolling that far as a disadvantage.

That I can't help with, I play on PC.  I know a few friends who play on console but no idea how they manage it.

What server/world did you end up on?  I'm on Faerie under this same name, if you end up converting to the full game (trial locks you down pretty hard).

Jenova I believe.

I had the game long ago prior to Heavensward on PC and liked it for the most part - just not enough to keep at it with the monthly sub. I played a little so far and the controller is not terrible, with the hotkeys and such but it is definitely going to take a hot minute to find a rhythm.

Two of the fastest, most responsive healers I played with both used controllers because it was faster for them than the keyboard.  Strictly anecdotal, but I couldn't even come close to being as fast as they were.  Obviously it comes with practice and proper mapping of abilities to keys for optimal use, but the controller isn't a problem for this game.

Sometimes the class quests are the most frustrating things around.  I am having a bitch of a time getting past the level 60 RDM quest and I keep failing.  I just leveled to 63 last night, so I'm over the quest level as it is and my gear is all level 60 stuff, but I'm just not putting out enough damage to take the enemy NPC down quickly and/or keep myself and the stupid partner NPC alive.  Ugh.

OTOH, I do enjoy playing RDM a fair amount.

I miss my FFXI red mage...
