I'm a level 22 pug who hasn't played the game since Jan 2011 and I'm still baffled at how the Pugilist is still in my eyes a joke of a class! So im thinking of going the Archer/bard route. I'm also going to do a human so im thinking of blowing up my Mitha! What you guys think i should do?

Did your character make it through the migration already? If not, what I think you should do is hopefully not get too upset at how long it'll take to be playable. :)

How's it a joke? If played properly you should be able to keep up with, if not surpass EVERYONE in lengthened fights. In short fights we sit around the middle of the playground. But in longer fights you should be at the top of every parse. If not, you're doing it wrong. It gets even better with Monk. There are only a handfull of long fights where an average MNK will lag behind mages, people are still modifying tactics but some have reported outdoing mages on fights where you're supposed to run away from things but they're getting lucky with evades I think.

I play PGL/MNK close to how I played THF in XI, though I would love for PGL or another class to provide THF at somepoint as a hate pinning Job. I'm not amazing at DD, I'm ok for being inexperienced but I prefer a role like I had with THF. I like running around and in emergency situations being able to sacrifice myself while tanking to save the party. I can mostly do that with MNK.

In a pickup party for EXP, yeah it kinda sucks you get a hit or two in and everyone else has killed the mob so you don't get the hit from the front, light up combo, move to side, initiate combo type stuff except on harder mobs (which most parties are ignoring in lieu of faster easier high chain fights).

Having said that I am enjoying Bard. Only level 34 ATM, but I've already noticed I'm doing more backup healing than combo's or anything and in the exp parties I've been in (raptors and leves) we're on the move so much it's hard to renew songs so I'm pretty much playing archer and backup healer. And it costs gil to level... It's fun, but as a casual player running out of gil... it's gonna suck soon I think. I'm down below 6 mil from gearing up and buying mats to start grinding my crafts up so I can meld my own materia.... BRD is gonna kill me and force me to grind/farm DoL or certain mobs for high priced NPC or ward drops. PGL/MNK is fun because it's carfree. Alot of the decent gear around 35ish is acceptable until 50 (other than weapon) for solo and alot of it is ok in a party situation as people are relying on your DPS and not your survivability. Alot of "wrong" equipment in the wards with the "right" materia attached to it for cheap ^.^

migration actually took no time as my char was already moved over to a server! I guess SE already did it for me for free. And actually i take back the pug was a joke i just had to buy other type of gear since i was going for the talk build before the changes began to affect the classes/jobs! Now my Pug is killing things faster, I kinda hate that I made a Mithra though and should have made an Hyur Female :( but I think about it for the next day

I didn't get a chance to choose my server! For some odd reason my toon was automatically placed on Sargatanas server.

Certain servers automatically got merged together. If you wanted to pick which one, you had to do that some time ago, and I think it was only available to active characters.

So, if you weren't active before the merge, and didn't get your request in on time for where you wanted to go, you got auto-merged.

Check out the very bottom of this page: http://lodestone.finalfantasyxiv.com/pl/index.html

And here's the list of which servers turned into which: http://lodestone.finalfantasyxiv.com/pl/topics/detail?id=13222abe211533c87814786dc7c7c72707574cb8

Monk is pretty much abused on one of the newer raids for speedruns. 4 Monks will tear up a certain end-game marlboro monster. It is in no way a joke.
