I chose a Sea Wolf, Marauder.. looked to me lik eit would match up pretty well (lorewise)... But I really don't know much about the game. So I'm asking for tips about how to choose a combination of race/class and jobs that make leveling easier.

It doesn't....there are classes that are very solo unfriendly though such as the Lancer.

race doesn't matter... it's purely aesthetic.

Yes, Lancer is very solo unfriendly unless you have shock spikes, stoneskin, shell, protect, cure2, sacrifice2, rampart, etc.

Yeah Lancers cant get hit much, but are the hardest hitting.

No class hits harder than archer right now.

Having leveled every combat class but lancer to 10+ (and I did Lancer in beta) I will confidently say that the mage classes level the fastest solo, at least to 15.

They are all fun, but do watch the AoEs of Marauder.

I've read about archers hitting hard but i havent seen any of this.
What abilities make them hit so hard?
It isn't because im a Lancer... but man they hit pretty hard.

Also this comparison is with only the main classes abilities or using others?
