Do you need this class?Follow

I'm joining the ranks of FFXIV soon. Just need to wait for it to come in the mail!

Now, what I'm wondering 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?

Our linkshell always needs Alchemists. Because Alchemists break crystals into shards (and clusters into crystals) they are a great support class for all the other crafting classes.

You can change your class at any time so it doesn't really matter a whole lot what you start as.

tanks and healers are generally your best bet as far as whats most desirable. theres generally (in most mmo's) less tanking and healing classes than dps so you should get more invites than if u were to play a strictly attacker type. seems theres a log more conj than thm, so if ur leaning towards healing at all id give thm a try and see how u like it.

Due to the structure of the game, it is less about class and more about filling a job/role. That being said every server is different and every LS likewise so. For example my LS is overburdened with caster classes (okay, I am one of them LOL) but there are other LS's out on Fabul that only wish they had as many casters as I seem to have. But overall the question should be... what do you want to play. The game is about your enjoyment after all.
