New player here, longtime WoW player, couple general questions that have come to mind. 1. Housing. I'm only level 10 now and the amount I'm reading for even apartments seem astronomically impossible unless I'm going to be playing the auction house (market board here I think?) like mad. I guess my question is how out of reach is a small house for the average player? I got really excited when this was introduced to me at level 10 but got a bit disappointed when it seemed like actually getting my own spot to decorate/play around in is a ways off. That said, I *loved* walking around one of the housing districts and seeing what folks have built. It's a really neat feature. 2. Is transmog (altering gear to look like other gear) a thing in this game? Not critical but one character I had leveled (I tried a Marauder first then swapped to a Thaumaturge as I didn't like the animations of the Marauder much) had ended up wearing this sort of ugly puffy jacket thing. 3. Any general leveling tips? I've been sort of just doing whatever comes up where I'm around but if you'd recommend I focus on main quest/job quest lines would love to know, or if it's all good. 4. I see some players have icons next to their names - red chairs, green sprouts (I get what that one means since I've got it lol). I've seen a few others. Anything in particular I should be looking for? Thanks for your help all!

General question, am I expected to look up mechanics before I do a duty the first time? I did Keeper of the Lake yesterday and they were giving me crap for dying after I missed going into the shield after the bird. This is my first MMO so I always play DPS the first time I do a dungeon because I'm afraid of messing up as healer. Just wondering if I am supposed to be more prepared?

Seeking some clarity regarding LBs, as a 55ish lvl NIN. As I understand it, melee LB is for single target. If there are 2 melee DPS in a party, is it the same damage if a NIN or MNK or RDM, etc. uses the LB? Do certain jobs get priority? Lately when I see LB is ready to go and no one is popping it, I go for it after my burst window. No one has said anything, but wondering if there is any etiquette around this? Also want to confirm that I should never use the LB if party health is low, so a tank or healer can use it to mitigate/heal?

How should you approach rotations as a tank in a dungeon? Im a level 60 Warrior in Heavensward and I feel like I just kinda yolo things a lot. For example, my Summoner and Red Mage rotations are set in stone and I never deviate from them. Should I try to come up with something similar for Warrior where I try to pop mits in a specific order? Also, when pulling a huge group of mobs, is it better to just stick with my 1-2 aoe combo through the burn, or should I do 1-2 aoe then 1-2-3 for heals and resources to do more aoe damage?

What is the best level 55 rotation?

Learning Scholar, just reached level 52, never played Barrier Healer before. IIRC Balance guide says not to bother with Sacred Soil before it gets the Regen but I've also seen guides on YT that say "Prioritize Sacred Soil right away" and that Lustrate is bad. So which is it? Also I'm used to sometimes let people drop low on WHM cause I have tools to remedy that but what's a general HP percentage I should aim for as SCH?

Probably a bit late for this week's thread, but does anyone have reccomendations for alternate keybinds etc for selecting party members? I can't keep up with handing out Astrologian's cards in busy bossfights. Currently I use the mouse to click on the party list and tab back to the boss, but this falls over a bit when there's adds and/or mechanics-heavy parts. (and as a bonus extra question, any way to stop slightly panicking and spending a GCD casting all my buffs rather than weaving them in? Practise is the answer, I guess! :) )

I just started a couple of weeks ago and I play a healer in dungeons. I notice sometimes the tank runs off from the group dragging mobs with him and dies and gets pissy that I don't know how to heal. Is this some sort of strategy I'm not aware of? By the time I catch up and start casting he's dead.

Hey again! Thanks for the advice a couple weeks ago on servers-Midgardsormr has been treating me well so far! I just hit Level 15 content and have a couple questions: 1. I just got daily goals, but I'm worried that I'm more than a bit overleveled already in my "main" class thanks to the server xp boost (I'm at Level 28 Arcanist doing main story and job quests and occasionally crossing something off the hunting log). Is it worth doing dailies now or should I hold off until I actually need the xp? 2. For the first dungeon, I had the option of queuing or having an NPC party. I waited in the queue for 15 minutes yesterday before giving up and proceeding with an NPC group. Is this the right move or should I wait as long as it takes? I tend to play late night Pacific time and I was worried there may not be a lot of people going through the early game story around midnight PST. Thanks again!
