So - what do you all do about mob marking?
I play on PS3 (I am trying to re-configure it so that all I need to use is my keyboard and mouse that I have plugged in instead of the controller...targeting !><!), so the marking is a little cumbersome. I have heard there are some macros that can help, but I am still an extreme newb at FFXIV marcros.
The only time I have used marking so far is by marking a weak target in a group of 3-4 as "1" and saying "sleep 1 to pull please", then I will target the next weakest mob, shield lob as they are incoming, burn flash, then go into my flexible rotation.
I guess the main points would be: Do you all use marking and find it very helpful? And: Is there a smooth system to mark mobs besides becoming a savant at PS3 targeting and marking?
PS - I think GLDs are the best tank class in game, simply because if you are a smart GLD, you can hold AE aggro with little to no problems, but if you are a smart MRD, you cannot mitigate your damage any better : D
