As a Paladin am I supposed to pull mobs? In the past a archer or Blm does it and my job as a tank was to keep hate..

Provoke and Shield Lob.

Shield Lob generate extra enmity and has range of 12 whereas Provoke has range of 24 but generate no enmity if used as first pull. Provoke is useful to pull Succubus in AK due to its range for example.

By "in the past", are you referring to FFXI? Dungeon based play is different from camp based exp grinding.

In FFXI, the tank needed to stay at the camp to rest for MP, get ballads, etc. But when you have to roam around, it doesn't make sense having a DD pull mobs. Even in FFXI, if you were doing some kind of mission where the party had to roam around, it made more sense for the tank to initiate combat.

Initial aggro of mobs is very useful for your own enmity.

It depends on what you have in the party and where you are. Simple answer, you are the puller now. You want to mark the targets, order of attack, but you pull them, get hate on them, and then the BLM or whatever will sleep them.

Only mob I have been expected to pull as blm is one or two of the harder to reach succubus in AK when we dont have an archer.

Tank can Provoke the succubus (same range as any archer), unless they don't have it on bar. As a WAR this is understandable, at no time (unless speeeeeed run) you should need Provoke in dungeons like WP/AK/CM/Prae. As a PLD, this is stuck on your bar unless you remove it.
