Can anyone give a broad strokes overview of what they feel will be the role of the new Disciple of Magic jobs? I am particularly interested in hearing more about the roles of Bards, Summoners, and Scholars in ARR. Any insight or speculation would be awesome. The info provided on the official page isn't really helpful or informative. I am kind of geeked about summoner, but a bit wary as I feel the FFXI version of summoner never really shined as I had hoped, although I did throughly enjoy the avatar battles.

Summoner is a hybrid debuffer and damage dealer.
Scholar is a hybrid healer and debuffer.

We only have public information to go off of, but for Summoner - if you are familiar with Aion, I get the impression that Yoshi-P is mostly copying the Spiritmaster.

I'm just making an educated guess, but since it's a debuff/summoner (like Spiritmaster), uses a book, same battle animation, similar looking summons, it seems that is his 'inspiration'.

Scholar was just revealed but they described it as a healer which would be more HoT focused.

Bard was basically an Archer DPS in 1.23, with a few support spells sloppily thrown in - hoping it will be changed for ARR.

I did enjoy Summ in FFxi, just for the company when running around. I did use it to PULL in low level parties.
Forgot what the place was called but the dungeon had bats, lots of bats. Players (newbies) were afraid to pull
because of all the deaths (oh the fun), so I usually volunteered which always scored points for me in party invites.

Oh the happy days of everyone running for the exit!!
