Limit breaksFollow

I'd love to know more about each class'/job's limit break: what each does, and, perhaps most importantly, for the dd limit breaks--how much damage does each do relative to the others? So if I'm on BLM and there's a DRG in my party, which one of us should limit break for maximum damage?

I unlocked scholar the other day (yay) but have no idea what my limit break does. Would hate to waste it trying it out in a dungeon and get yelled at by one of those angry zerg tanks. (You know the ones I'm talking about.)^^;

Healer (SCH/WHM/BRD) -> Heal party, LB 3 also resurrect party.
Melee DD (MNK/DRG) -> Single target damage LB, more potent than Magic DD
Magic DD (ACN/BLM/SMN) -> Area AoE damage LB, less potent (somewhere about half of Melee DD potency) but very large AoE. I put Arcanist seperately because unlike the other Class -> Job retain the same role, Arcanist count as DD while SCH count as Healer.
Tank DD (PLD/MRD) -> Defense up LB, LB 3 should give invulnerability.

Gotta love the LB's. So many pt's I've been in and no one even mentions them, but then when they see my Lallafel Lnc jump 6 feet in the air and go all Gundam style on the boss, they are like, "woa, how did you do that?"

I think it's strange that archer and bard heal.

I hope they add more limit breaks in the future, specific to each class/job. Also, maybe even personal limit break bars.
They could use this to introduce a form of skillchaining in FFXIV. I'd like to have some sort of build up/charge ability to break up just doing ability rotations.
