    I mained a GLD/PAL, it was/is a lot of fun but it bears more responsibility and now that I have a 50 BLM, I find myself wanting to use it in dungeons for a sort of "break". THM is lots of fun in dungeons! You have a some awesome utilities at your disposal like sleep and cure/physic, you wipe out the weak mob groups quicker than anyone with your AoE and you've got decent single target damage.

    Now my BLM is sought after for certain things, like taking out Ifrit HMs 4 nails, getting through WP swiftly, etc. I feel no shortage in usefulness yet and I have a lot of fun. I often outdo the other classes in single target damage, and I still get to wipe out weaker mob groups swiftly. Biggest issue I have is cast time but you just need to be efficient when a lot of movement is required.

    See, now you just made my decision... I'm going THM/BLM because you just made it sound so much more enjoyable! xD

    Yeah I'm no expert in either since I'm a Dragoon and nothing else, but THM (or BLM eventually), seems like one of the most useful DPS jobs for dungeons. As Matt said, the AoE is insane, and if you're lucky you might out-DPS other classes on single targets. I'll out-DPS an equally geared BLM on single targets but I've gotta get my rotation right.

    On the other hand, it's beneficial to have classes in multiple roles, and paladins can be a lot of fun aswell. Plus I don't think there's any instance in the game where people aren't happy to see a pally in the party ;)

    I would probably do them both in the end (the only class I am nervous to do is CNJ/WHM because i suck at healing). Just wasn't sure which to do first xD I've always been better at DPS than tanking though... Although most time's i've used the DF i got a tank who tried to DPS and I ended up tanking anyway xD

    CNJ/WHM will be next, so I have all three roles. But I also suck at heals, so that one will take some dedication, which is why I'm putting it off atm. Then I think onto a melee DPS, probably a DRG since I've already got the Ifrit lance and some ilvl 55-60 gear.

    Before rerolling I have a level 34 DRG and found it very fun, but up close and personal i found i died a lot due to latency issues... Was on Masamune at the time though...
