@Frathlir said in F2P player, how do you play multiple classes with only one MAG?:
Originally I just used a different character for different classes that had the same stat. Only within the last few months have I been swapping to different classes on those characters, and I'm finding the loss of the mainstat to not be a huge deal overall, though I'm not the kind that has to push the highest in the newest content, I just don't have the stable schedule to arrange with friends/guildies to pull that off.
If you're casul skum, you don't really need to worry about min/maxing with your mag
Please don't word this this way. This is misleading and the mag stats are much more significant than other things to consider it minmaxing. 200 points in a stat may not sound that big, but it does make much more of a difference than say the difference in choosing one race over the other, whether it's multiplied by stat modifiers or not (it would still be affected by crits regardless), 200 in a damage stat actually can be the difference between able to do certain content or not.
If you mess up a few points it's not that bad, but no you should definitely try to use the right mag if you intend to stick with a class that uses that stat for a significant amount of time (especially if you plan to do higher level UQs, there are ones where every point of damage counts). As people above said there are classes you can mix and max mag stats, because they have a skill that converts either dex, or the attack stats into the appropriate stat, but you still need to make sure to use the correct one ot those two for those classes then.
But you shouldn't encourage people to not even bother to use the correct mag, when it's not that difficult to do, and is correctable in the end eventually as you either make another character for the other stat, or gather enough ex cubes to trade for the items to fix the messed up stats.
