I mean the type of soloing where you would wear down really tough enemies over long periods of time by doing small amounts of damage while keeping yourself alive by kiting, binding, gravity, etc.
It seems that every mob that I have come accross in FFXIV can either spit on you, burp on you, throw his nuts at you, or hit you with some other type of ranged attack. It makes me think that kiting will not be an option in FFXIV for staying alive for long periods of time. Not to mention the fact that you run slower when in battle mode, and you have to stop running to toggle back and forth between passive and battle modes.
Has anyone found class combos that can survive indefinately ahwile whittling down an enemies hp?
