    I'm definitely going smn. FF always gives love to the smns, and no other games make them as well. I'm a little worried this one will end up like wow warlock, but I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt.

    I have everything 50, so naturally Arcanist will be my focus. But in terms of pimping out jobs, anything Mage related will be pimped out again like it was in 1.0.

    Damage will always be the majority, but in the FFonline titles so far, including last weeks beta, the regular playerbase has always had a higher % of healers than any other MMO I've played in 12 years, and with less healing class options to boot. Comes with the strong community. When people aren't worried so much about being burned every time they try to help someone, everyone is far more inclined to do it.

    That being said, on topic, I don't even know any more. I'm going to have to get my hands on scholar, I think, realistically before I decide on a "Main" class. I enjoy healing in these types of games, especially the HoT types, but I'm not wild about the pet concept and especially the fairy. I'm going to have to test the AI out for myself before I commit to it.

    If that falls through, one thing this last beta showed me is that tanking is probably going to be incredibly fun in this game. I spent the most time on my Gladiator when I initially only rolled him to mess around in Ul'dah. We'll see. It's a new beta in a few days.

    Kind of hard to vote for paladin at the moment, eh?

    I'm REALLY leaning towards Warrior over Paladin, myself. But I really want to check out Bard and White Mage.

    From this interview with Yoshida

    http://gamerescape.com/2013/06/17/e3-2013-interview-with-naoki-yoshida/

    The class will debuff&buff and if I'm reading this article right the Summoned Eggi will DD. Hopefully this brings some clarity.

    Still undecided, so i'll just start with leveling everything as i feel like and choose then.

    I feel like I saw a ridiculous number of THM on my server, but past level 10 they really thinned out.
    I'll be taking the glass-cannon route, like I always do >:D

    UUGH!! I wanna change my vote o_O
    First i wanted to go archer, because I love ranged dps with bows. Now I understand they become DPS/support instead of pure hard DPS? Correct me if I am wrong about this.

    This kinda put me off alot. So I found out that Black Mages = Pure ranged DPS and Monks = Pure melee DPS
    So I wanna cast my vote onto Monks after reading about this! :p

    As said, correct me if I´m wrong.

    I wouldn't let the word "support" deter you from Bard. It wont take away from your enjoyment of the class. It's still a DPS class that uses bows and a valuable one at that. Who doesn't want an extra Raise? I think every class has at least a little bit of support in them. I'd say the "pure" DPS classes are Black Mage and Dragoon, but I could be wrong. /shrug

    Thanks alot! :p


    Edit: I know this is slightly off-topic but what classes do I need to become Monk? what lvls and stuff like that?

    None of the selections in the poll are starting classes...

    Anywho I think I may very well start on Thaumaturge and go BLM first as it is probably the class/job combo I played least in 1.0 Where I was typically Tanking or melee DD on Drg/Mnk.

    I want to be a tree.
    With customizable roots and I want to be a specific tree, not the typical leaf tree.
