The end of most MMOs. You know, the storyless grind for gear you`ll never have to use anyway.

Black Mage is more useful for most endgame situations than Archer/Bard is. That's not to say Archer/Bard isn't useful, but there is usually only one spot reserved for a BRD where as 2-3 slots are reserved for BLM. Especially in events like Chimera and Garuda.

I don't know. SE is getting better at making most jobs useful (unless you're a monk...)

I'm 50 BRD, BLM, and DRG, and EVERY time i go to an event, I get told to go as something different. BLMs are good, but that also means they are abundant. You're fighting for gear and for that blm slot.

Both are Ranged DD, but you'll never be asked to go as Archer, so you can focus on 1 gearset. I have a BLM and a THM gearset because both are viable jobs in most endgame events, and sometimes you just need another person with raise and cure.

BLM does more dmg than Brd though. It's not the powerhouse it used to be. Just level both. You won't regret it.

Endgame or endless game? Is there a difference?

If it's a choice between BRD and BLM I would advice you get BLM first and then get your BRD up asap too. I think that BLM is more useful and although you will have opportunity to use BRD in end-game you will tend to use your blm more (especially if you are any good) ;)

More specialist by far than the OP's job question, MNK definitely is used for 50+ events such as Moogle battle ( all MNK is so much fun and if done well very quick) and AV - you do have to be another job and then change to MNK but 5 mnk on the Miser is pretty brilliant when done properly.

Yeah unfortunately while Monk is great, it shines best in only certain events. The only thing that comes to mind that a Black Mage isn't really useful for is Hamlet Defense. You want a WHM nuker for that.

Ifrit Extreme? BLM has two self targeting AoE, one has very long Casting and CD (Flare) and one long CD that do minimal dmg (Blizzara). Can't see how 6 BLM gonna get past the 13 nails.

I personally play Dragoon, but of the two selected, you're SOL.
Black Mage is reliant upon Chameleon, which is a high level Archer ability, in order to be able to quickly ditch hate.

But Black Mage is clearly the best DPS of the two classes mentioned.

So level both.

This is also true. You'll want to level them both since they both use each other for cross-class abilities (though Bard doesn't have much use for Thm)

Additionally, you'll want to level Conjurer no matter what class you choose, and Monk for Second Wind, and War for Bloodbath, and Drg for Feint.


So just level them all and pick which is most fun. Most jobs can be optimized to your playstyle through gear and materia.
