When you first enter a Final Fantasy XIV dungeon quickly type a message to the effect of "I have never tanked this place before. Do you have any tips?"

Here are my best Final Fantasy XIV Tips

I actually found myself in the exact same predicament, with my own main character. Her backstory hinged on being able to fight as a gladiator, but tanking absolutely terrified me. While it's still far from my cup of tea, I am extremely glad that I pushed through to keep her story intact.

 

Here are my best tips.

 

1) Level to 60 first and complete the MSQ with your preferred class role. Simply having a class at max level, will give you a big XP boost to the next class that you level. This also removes the pressure of tanking, while you work through the main instances and allows you to enjoy them.

 

2) Rather than leaping into the fray at level 20 or 30 content, start out with the most basic guildhiests and work up from there. Guildhiests are particularly useful if you are nervous because you can take lots of breaks between the short fights.

 

3) When you first enter a Final Fantasy XIV dungeon quickly type a message to the effect of "I have never tanked this place before. Do you have any tips?"  You should already have familiarized yourself with the fight, by running it on your OOC class, watching a video, or reading a guide. Even so you are going to mess up on your first run, and I have had some really great responses and support from randoms by being honest from the beginning.

 

4) Don't be afraid to use #3 on your second or third attempt if you still feel insecure about the dungeon. It helps people to understand that you are still learning.

 

5) Get familiar with non-tank methods of leveling. For the three weeks that I spent leveling my tank, I carefully completed the challenge log every week. The EXP is decent and it breaks up the stress of tanking really well.

 

6) If you can find friends who are willing to help, Grab them! You may still be repeatedly positioning the entire party in nasty AOEs but at least you know they will understand.

 

7) If all else fails grind FATES.

 

Since you have already unlocked DK, you can already strike #1 off of your list. If you should happen to see me around on Klynzahr Iyrnahctwyn and want help with #6, I would be happy to heal you through whatever content you wish to try. For the rest all it takes is a little patience and persistence. Remember once you hit 60 you never need to tank again!
