Hi all, the answer to the topic title sounds so obvious it's dumb, but hear me out.
I'm a little confused about my role and what exactly is expected of me as a damage dealer in dungeons/guildhests and so on. I'm coming from XI, before Abyssea and all that where there were set party camps, one mob, and the only person who was moving around was the puller. Actually moving through dungeons and taking on multiple enemies is really throwing me for a loop so far. I just can't seem to get a handle on it and I'm just waiting to get cussed out sooner or later :P
So a few questions:
If the tank is taking a beating from multiple mobs, do I focus on the target the tank is attacking? Or do I go after adds? This one really confuses me.
Is there an easier way of targeting the tanks target other than manually selecting it? (controller user here btw). I've been in a few guildhests where I was actually just standing there doing nothing while frantically trying to target their target, it was a mess.
For the times when you do actually need to "pull" enemies, who does that job normally go to? In XI it was always a DDs job but I've seen tanks just running in head first and I've even seen some CNJ's doing it... what the heck?
Sorry for all the noob questions. I've just never played a game like this before. FFXI is the only MMO I ever played.
Any general advice or tips you could give me as well would be appreciated. (Oh! playing a Lancer btw).
