You accomplish it in the same manner you do FFXIV DPS

Fun fact, most new tanks still don’t know what they’re doing by 30 even when they started at level 1.

Other fun fact, a fresh level 15 Marauder or Gladiator isn’t going to know how to tank in a group setting either. Nothing in those first 15 levels explicitly teaches you how to tank.

Tanking is not difficult to learn. You accomplish it in the same manner you do DPS, by following a standard rotation. The only thing most newb Tanks have issue with is UFFXIV tanking more than one mob a a time. But understanding comes quickly.
Starting us at level 30 was a good move. It caused the 3 new Jobs, especially the Dark Knight, to feel a whole lot more complete than starting at level 1 would have.

I don’t think i could have stomached leveling FFXIV Gil Dark Knight from 1 without access to Grit and the full 3 part enmity combo. Would have felt like Gladiator all over again. (Still does when I’m forced below Haukke for Leveling Roulette!)

You honestly found it that difficult to learn new skills at 30? Not trying to be rude but…
You get a small handful to learn, and how hard was it really to understand what to do?
And for the “The boring grining part” you were going to grind anyways from 1-30.
You could of went back to Sastasha and learned how to press 1 or 2 skills.
Haukke/30 was a perfect start AND it’s a fun dungeon lol.
