FFXIV: A Realm Reborn Gladiator FAQ

How do I become a Gladiator!
You can choose it as a starting class, or by going to the Gladiator guild once you complete the level 10 class quest.

Where is the Gladiator guild?
The Gladiator guild is located in Ul’dah. [more info: Guilds guide]

What’s the best Gladiator race?
STR and VIT are your best bets for this class. In this case you have a choice of whether to choose the higher STR race Hyur Highlander (23 STR, 22 VIT) but if prefer the higher VIT go for Roegadyn Sea Wolves (22 STR, 23 VIT) and this difference is arguably negligible so it boils down to how you want to look? :) [more info: Racial Stats guide]

God choice is irrelevant for Gladiators right now. [more info: Gods guide]

What are the best crafting and gathering jobs for Gladiator?
