Since I haven't been able to play yet (in the process of building a PC that will run it), all I've been able to do is read up as much as possible. One question I have is what are the roles of the two mages at this point? At first I thought Conjurer must be WHM and THM must be BLM, but after reading more I'm not sure. Note- I realize this is continuously changing and the dev team steers the game through toward 2.0.
Sorry if this has been hashed out before, but I am trying to read only recent stuff written after the October announcement (and really as recent as possible due to the 1.20 patch). For instance, I went through and read Edy's THM guide but after talking to him via PM (I knew him pretty well in XI) he said the game has changed to the point where his guide is basically obsolete.
sooo tl;dr What roles do the existing mage jobs currently fill? Are they similar to the WHM and BLM in XI or are they more hybrid?
The reason I ask this here (in this thresd as opposed to starting a new one) is because it helps me get a better feel for people's for what classes are need when they refer to a mage job.
