What about Point allotment? You are talking about changing from DoW to DoM... which obviously will require a completely different skill set to function properly, and completely different gear to optimize your abilities... I am surprised that I am not hearing
complaints comments that you can't instantly reset all your points and have them automatically change to be optimize for the DoW vs. DoM (or DoH or DoL). Then again, I suppose a desire to be elite is required for that to annoy a person.
Actually, as long as you have balanced stats distribution you can pretty much hit your soft cap (or what was before allegedly claimed to be the soft cap based on vit and mnd) with just changing gear and equipping stat converting traits. At least in my rank range.
As others have pointed out, it is hardly a lie. You obviously don't need me to tell you you can change your jobs "on the spot". Apparently you assumed/want to change your Disciple, job, gear and skills on the spot and all in a blink of an eye. Sorry, no instant gratification with respects to that, you have to wait your 1 minute and 30 seconds and the time setting up and modifying macro's.
Being a marauder with thaumaturge stats, equipment and skills hardly readies you to play said job on the spot. In fact, you can't, at all. You'd have mage stats, mage equipment and no skills other than your basic attack.
The only thing changing is how your stats converts based on your job. So no, I wouldn't call that changing jobs on the spot if you aren't ready to perform as said job. That's like having a thau gear up with heavy armor and claim he can perform as tank.
