I'm joining the ranks of FFXIV soon. Just need to wait for it to come in the mail!
Now, what I'm wondering is...is there a certain class that's "needed" in FFXIV? Like, is there a shortage of one that people say "we sure could use a Lancer" or something?
Also, talking about Lancers, do they do the highest melee damage? They seem popular in the videos I've seen, and in the forum. Is there a class that does a great amount of damage? Is there a class that's pretty mediocre? Or do all of them balance nicely?
So far, I'm interested in the Conjurer (For heals and buffs, or for spell DPS), the Lancer, and the Pugilist. The Gladiator is a choice as well, if people need a tank. I've always enjoyed tanking in past MMOs.
Are these good choices? Any tips?
