    ??? balance is actually pretty good in this patch

    Well, I'd say that suggests ranged DPS classes could use a little nudge, but otherwise yes.

    I legit forgot about the BRD buffs

    Still, you get what I'm saying. The selfish class vs supportive class balance is tricky.

    At least with MCH you could note that its median is very comparable and being a mobile RPDS means it should be more consistent but without the peaks of riskier classes.

    But BRD and DNC are straight up in the toilet and have been for the entirety of ShB. They even "revamped" BRD by giving it a bunch of support abilities, but then kicked it's pDPS in the ass so it just stayed flat when it was already on the bottom??? At least they reverted that, which is why it's back above poor DNC.

    I sound more upset than I am. I did all of E1-4S on BRD and never had issues, though I was obv near the bottom of the DPS charts even when I was parsing well. I just think it's weird that FFXIV class design is tuned so no class could ever become auto-include or auto-dumpster, yet they can't just add 10 potency to a few abilities to make numbers go up.

    What I find amusing about that link is there are almost 3k more parses for SAM than any other job.

    Guess we know who's worried about stroking their ego :P

    Even then, you could throw MCH a bone somewhere. The other two definitely need some help. DNC they could originally excuse with being careful because of how strong their buffing game is but the evidence has been clear for a while now that they could use more personal DPS.

    Like, just push another 10 pot on the fan dances, those things are anemic anyways.

    Yeah considering MCH brings no party buffs (besides the party defense thing) it ought to be at least a bit higher. I mean, SAM and BLM get to be big the dick DPS all the time cause they dont have buffs.

    Well, I'd say that suggests ranged DPS classes could use a little nudge, but otherwise yes.

    i think it's balanced by the fact that while the rphys is lower than the rest of the dps, comp-wise you still want one person in that role. i imagine they make the role weaker than the rest since no cast times while being ranged means ultimate uptime

    Ultimate uptime doesn't actually payoff though, as the numbers show.

    e8s seems to be one exception I've run into for this. Even when you know how everything works, the tolerances for mistakes are so small that you can still easily fail on stuff you've beaten a number of times already. I'm enjoying it and I'm glad that content like it exists.

    Red Comet is still some pretty hefty damage going out even if you do everything right so it still can kill you, especially if your healer doesn't know ahead of time.

    Honestly the best thing about Red Comet is that his critical engagement spawning in is an actual splash aoe marker, where as all the other ones use a new, very similar indicator to just show where the arena will spawn.

    Every single time he shows up that gets somebody.

    I think Sartavouir's non-duel encounter also does that.

    It hurts from a pretty large distance. I was towards the edge of the indicator as a tank when it came down and I still took 43k.

    I like to think that Red Comet is the same Red Chocobo who drops a meteor on you halfway through the Rabanastre raid. Same method of attack, too.

    I have now run the Burn and Saint Mocianne's Arboretum (Hard) about 15-20 times each, and seen only a single pair of boots drop, for the Royal Volunteer's Maiming set... when I'm hunting the Fending, Healing and Casting sets.

    Edit: On the bright side, one of my retainers just brought me the Casting Gloves, so now I just need the Casting Chest, the Healing Pants, and all three sets of boots.

    I've got to figure out a good Striking set. I'm using the Royal Volunteer's sets because they're recolors of the Filibusters sets, and the Filibusters sets are what the Ala Mhigo resistance mostly wears. The Royal Volunteer's Fending, Casting, and Healing sets are the same as the Filibuster's Maiming, Scouting, and Aiming sets respectively, which I already use. But neither of the Striking sets look good on my character. All the long coats in those sets are weirdly flared at the waist so that it looks like you've got a couple extra people crouched by your legs all trying to sneak into the movie theater with just one ticket, and they clip terribly when my hands are in a resting position.

    I'd like to play Samurai more often, and I'm hoping the upcoming Monk revamp gets me enthusiastic about it as well, since it's one of two classes with the most direct ties to Ala Mhigo, and therefore should be a great fit for my character if it wasn't such a chore to play. But I can't seem to fully engage with any class unless I've got a look for it that I'm happy with.

    I enjoy tanking and healing as a role, so I enjoy all the tanks and healers. Though I definitely have favorites (WAR and WHM/AST).

    DPS, uh, I've leveled BRD to 80 and like it. I've leveled BLM to 60 and that rocks. I occasionally play DNC and it's pretty fun.
