Default Job Choice

Hey, im getting fairly bored with FF again, so I am going to try to level up another job. I am stuck deciding between RNG, PLD, and DRK. I want to level pld for the armor, I like the AF a ton. RNG is a power house, I played as my friend's 75 rng a few times, their crazy lol. DRK seems alot like WAR, which is a major + to me, since WAR is my main job. I have all melee merits really, 5 STR 4 Crit 8 Axe, but I also have ENM+ 4 and HP lvl 8, for PLD (Im also a NIN). Anyone have any pointers on these jobs? Likes/Dislikes, stuff like that. I have never lvld DRK, or with many drks for that matter and alot of people say they dont get PTs often. Is this true even now that very little people exp below 60? (At least on Midgard, its usually pretty bare.)

Probably go rng if you want decent PT invites, I lvled mine before the gimp patch so no idea... I don't see to many heh.

PLD is nice, it doesen't get alot invites but it sure does look sexy as mithra XD

DRK.. dunno, some are good.. some are bad, build a reputation of being good and you'd get alot invites.

I leveled RNG before the nerf too, so I can't help on that one.
DRK is hit and miss. Most Dark Knights are either dog fodder or pure platinum, with very little in between.
And every Mithra PLD I've partied with has held hate even when I overnuked, so they're generally excellent.

My suggestion: Play them all. If you find yourself getting bored with one, switch to another.

I'd go RNG if I had the money. Otherwise PLD just to be original.

After all the recent buffs and Parade Gorget PLD is really good now and is able to cover most of their own healing.... so if you wanna play a tank PLD isn't really a subpar choice like it kinda used to be. :O

RNG, I dunno... I'd wait to see how much they fix them after this patch. At this point not really worth paying for every shot to not really do any more (and often less) than other DDs.

DRK can be pretty good if you actually know how to play it. Most DRKs don't and they give the job a really bad name. ><

Drk is really fun. The only problem is it's very gear dependent so expect to farm a lot. Mithra look hottest as drk anyway =P

Also hopefully after december we won't be second tier DD's in TP burns any more.

I am 75 MNK and SAM already, which is why I didnt list them lol. As for DRK being gear dependant- I have most of the equip minus weapons. Heca hat/feet+1/body, armada hands/pallas brc/dusk ect, my main is WAR so I have most of DRK's gear. I usually jump to a new job when meriting gets boring, and since midgard fails so hard at keeping the astral candystick...; ; lol I think im going to try DRK out first, I like Wenrick's idea to try them all and just bounce between them when I get bored, thanks guys^^

Excluding Vassago's scythe, Balmung, and Mythril heart drk weapons are really cheap so theres no problem there.

Three pointers:
Learn stun - being good with stun makes all the difference between a good drk and a bad drk.

Skip Bone Scythe +1 - Barbarian's is so much better. Likewise don't use demonslicer. Go from Barb to Vassago's.

Never use berserk, last resort, and souleater at the same time.

For RNG, if it's below 30, you may as well level it now, since I doubt you'll see much difference. I remember having terrible accuracy issues until archer knives. (Although now there's a food with a bunch of +racc...) Otherwise, I'd wait until the patch before leveling it.

I haven't played PLD since they added auto-refresh and shield mastery, but I staticed with a PLD on my MNK. It didn't happen often, but he'd occasionally out TP me while I was subbing WAR. I think a well geared PLD could do really well. (It's pretty cheap to get good PLD gear at lower levels too.)

DRK might be the best choice for you if you want more options for high level stuff. Looks like you have the gear for it.

I might be the wrong person to be giving advice about what jobs to level though. I have equipment for 12 jobs between my main character and my 4 mules. (MNK SMN WHM BLM RNG PLD BRD THF BST DRK RDM COR)

if you have so many lv 75... stop lv now! rather skill up craft or just anything else.
trust me, soon as you have 4+ lv 75 you are very likely to quit soon
then come back after 3 months

edit: i suggest ballista :twisted:
