    Taru Pld

    Ok so I started pld yesterday. Its so much fun, but I have some questions. First things first I am only lvl 10 so if you can remember back that far help me out if not its cool.

    Problem #1: I get owned, seriously hit hard and I have great gear for whats available at lvl 10. I bought 2 earring that are -25mp to hp for balance. I was eating navarian for the evasion since I was getting my ass kicked so bad.
    Problem#2: I get owned

    So I am looking for suggestions on food, balance of MP HP, and if I should look into evasion gear for now until I get some more HP

    PLDs don't depend on evasion get some defense stuff.

    http://ffxi.somepage.com/itemdb/food.php#Melee_Defense

    PLDs are kind of crappy as tanks before Cure II, that's kind of just how it is from my experience with lower level PTs.

    skill up cooking a little bit and make your own juice till Lv 41. after you get Cure II and III, juices make you pimp.

    I used enough DEF on my WAR that I was getting hit for maybe 10-15 points of damage from Snippers at Lv13.

    It's not hard--just gear yourself towards pure defense and you'll tank better than most of the Elvaan tanks you see in that dump.

    Level to 75 like me and then realize your a WHM in Heavy Armor. Then get HP Merits, and Bomb Queen Ring, Full Koenig, a Cassie Earring, Morutaka Earring, and a Gigant Mantle, and invite random Garka PLDs into your pt and make them grovel at your 1700 HP... i only wish =( no but seriously just level up some more Taru PLD is awesome, and I tanked Tiamat just fine :wink: oh btw, use Pescatora and Turtle soup at high levels, its great !
