    Depends on how fast you play, really. If you want to take time and play around, learn, read the quests and stuff...I highly suggest starting off in the same city. The nice thing about starting in two different places is you can see two of the three beginning plots (all leads to the same route eventually, but until you leave the starter area, it's slightly different).

    That said, there's not really a huge NEED to play together before then.
    mfw you post

    Around level 12-15 in the Main Scenario do you unlock the other cities organically (airships!). Otherwise you can just run for your life between cities if you know where to go. Not advised though (I recall doing it during beta). Especially since your starting quests will center in your starting city-state until like 20 or something?

    Also, after the level 10 class quest you unlock the ability to change class by changing weapons. FYI to get PLD from GLA (30) you also need CNJ at 15 and for BLM you need THM (30) and ARC at 15. Both secondaries are in Gridania!

    On the bright side you as a tank will mean fast queues for dungeons whilst your wife can ride on that (DPS queues tend to be the longest, especially ranged DPS from what I hear).

    A good time to get HW if you want the expansion is when you finish the 2.0 Main Scenario since the 2.x content will give you EXP only if HW is there to remove the level cap. Though tbh you would only miss out on 1.5 levels in EXP (from what I read) for doing 2.0-2.55.

    FWIW, I don't think you can join the Free Company where we all chat during the 14 day free trial period.
    Bow before the mighty Javoo!

    Yeah, I know you can't join a Free Company during the trial period. But who said we'd be joining one right away?

    So what classes do you guys play? And since you're all in the game for so much longer than we will be, wouldn't it be difficult for us to take on dungeons together?

    Nah, high levels can sync down to help out through dungeons - so we'll be running as L15 just like you.
