So after saying "what the hell, nothing to lose" and reinstalling the game and reactivating my account a few days ago, I'm now actually enjoying my time in FFXIV....for now. I had wanted to play a PGL because H2H is just fun, but I did it with the assumption that it would be great DPS and have been hearing otherwise around the forums. I want to play a high DPS job and also level the crafting professions that will support that job.
To summarize, I'd like to see a breakdown of jobs ranked by damage output, or at least people's experience with jobs other than PGL and see how it ranks in damage output against Archers,Lancers, Marauders, Conjurers and Thaumaturgists. I'll probably level everything to at least level 10 or so to make sure I have some good support abilities but want to focus on the main DPS job.
