Anyway, my question is, what class and 2nd job of that class is the easiest/fastest to level to 30? I'm going to be skipping dungeons and not really focus on Khara at all if that helps (I'm going to delete the character once we receive the titles). Thanks!
I wouldn't necessarily skip all the dungeons, just duck out of the ones with more intensity, like Sea God. The quest rewards for the minimal effort are completely worth it. Khara achievements are handy too, as long as you're doing the ones that are just like "Hunt 20 of this" etc.
Anyway from what I've played, either of the magician classes is a pretty fast leveler, and a solid solo class for the early gameplay to boot. In this case I'd say build a PvE full DPS sorcerer, just to get the leveling done as quickly as possible.
Prioritize skills like this, more or less:
lvl 3 Frost Diver
lvl 5 Cold Bolt
lvl 5 Wind Arms
From here you can either hoard skill points or go ahead and max Lightning Bolt as well. My sorceress isn't capping lightning bolt though. Then sit on the rest of your skill points until job advance.
After job advance, do this:
lvl 5 Summon Aqua
lvl 3 Jupitel Thunder
lvl 1 Jupitel Thunder Mastery
lvl 5 Foresight
This should get you to your goal with ease.
