I have a short series of steps that will help you to understand more clearly:
1) Grasp your elitist mentality around "right" and "wrong" firmly in one hand.
2) Ram it right straight directly up your ****.
Right is what works. You don't need to have an optimal build to kill mobs solo. Chances are pretty good you're not going to get ousted from a generic battlecraft leve or grind party for not having an optimal build. Come endgame you'll allocate in a manner necessary to allow you to contribute. Since we have no endgame at present, and since when we DO have endgame content to think about most people are only going to be focusing on one class, you can build around that class and then bomb around on your lowbie classes with the same build and it's a pretty safe bet you're going to be fine.
Hence my statement that you don't need to min-max for leveling. And if you think you do, you're not so bright.
It's funny how people always try to defend their bad builds by throwing around the elitist card. Even if an optimal build isn't needed for the easy stuff that is all current content in FFXIV, it always helps. I mean, what are you going to do? Spread points around randomly until suddenly there is content that rewards efficiency? Why would you do that?
Bad build for what? I think you're getting ahead of yourself.
I rank up multiple DoH classes throughout any given week and frequently on any given day. You think I give a rat's *** if I've got any one of those classes tuned for optimal performance? I don't. I haven't got time to **** around swapping stats here for armorer and oh I need shards so let's build for alchemist and oops it's leve reset time so back to armorer and oh ya I'm out of local leves for armorer but this LW leve looks good so I'll respec for that and then build for weaver because I've got one more local leve I can do but oh look mining leves I'll rebuild for that...
Nonsense. Am I settling for mediocrity in my builds now? Absolutely. And I do it because I can. I'm not hurting in any way for it. If I've got my heart set on cranking out some HQ gear with my armorer I'll rebuild and stack VIT to the cap since it's confirmed that it influences quality. If my GLA is routinely getting facerolled in the content I'm doing I'll take a close look at where my stats are and adjust where appropriate.
And while we're on the subject, a key component to elitism is having a clue, and I'm telling you straight up that you don't have one. Who the **** are you to be prancing around talking about optimal builds for anything. For DoW/DoM classes, nobody yet has a goddam clue what "optimal" is. There hasn't been nearly enough time for nearly enough testing to determine what optimal might be and even if there was, testing in the current content would likely mean approximately jack when we get around to content tuned specifically for groups.
If you want to be tossing around this level of ******** elitism that only the "best" is "right", you're in way over your head. That's the point where you start getting down the encounter level, otherwise you, too, are just building a generic multi-purpose build, even if it's just for one class, because there's no way you can say that the build that's best for puks is also the best for imps is also the best for coblyns.
Success or failure. Right or wrong. If you succeeded, it was right. Period.
And the system we have now allows you to tweak and fine tune to your heart's content. It's a system that rewards diversity. And for the uberdork elitists out there for whom only the "best" will do, be my guest to reallocate between every encounter. Otherwise, blow it out your ***.
