I was amazed at the same thing, huge number of players and not much activity in the jobs/class forums.
I am really surprised by the Bard forums, I mean all I see is bard running around and it's a ghost town over there. Hopefully it picks up. I got used to the ZAM forums with XI, I sure hope it stays the top info source for XIV as well.
WAR has access to enough enmity gear and enough hate-inducing JA to aggro baby jesus.
When I'm trying to decide what spell to cast I look at the mobs' weaknesses, check the day, check the weather and then calmly cast Thunder IV.
