What am I missing here? I kept getting stompt at the MSQ after joining a GC, go to Ul'dah and buy level 30 gear, and then attempt this GLA quest where you grab the items in Southern Thanalan. I get overwhelmed and outnumbered so quick it feels like Im playing the game wrong. Pls help.

I’ve never played GLA, but anytime I had trouble with a job quest I searched you tube and found a video that helped me get it done.

Press your buttons as soon as you can.

After you lose it should give you echo buff so you get a stat increase the subsequent times.

I remember that quest being a pain as well with the sheer number of enemies coming at you all at one time. Go for the enemy mages and archers first, and keep some potions on your hotbar cause you cant rely on the NPC healers all the time.

I think I remember that one being a pain, my only advice is to clear out any non-quest mobs before interacting with the items in question. That way you only have to deal with the mobs that spawn after you touch the items and don't face pull the rest. Also not gonna lie, the fight after that was worse.

Yeah, you also may need mitigation for the fights too.

I'm not 100% in remembering the fight (did it so many years ago), but a general rule for instanced content is to single out any healers/mages first, any other dps second, and tanks last. There will be exceptions, but it works for most instances.

No need to hold back on defensive cooldowns like rampart or offensive ones like fight or flight. Use them as they come up. Use the latter to smash down those mages quick.
