I haven't played this game in a long time and I really have no idea how the jobs have been effected by the cap increase or the changes to the game over the years. I'm strongly considering coming back though, after being disappointed by both FFXIV and the Tera beta and I was considering which jobs I might enjoy these days.
What I was curious about was:
Which DDs are actually useful at this point? I've always liked DRK but I've heard DRK is gimpy job now? I remember DRG being lol'd at all throughout my playing career, but I had always thought it looked fun.
Is PLD still a useful job, or is everything blink tanked these days? What is a PLD's role nowadays? I always, always wanted to play PLD and never got around to it.
Basically if I had to pick two jobs out of: DRG, SAM, DRK, PLD which ones would be the most useful, or at least allow me to get some invites once I reach endgame?
Also, is there anyone - a LS perhaps - on any server that plays the game the old school way, with 6 man parties, at least up until you hit the 50s and start trying Abyssea? Call me crazy, but I actually miss the crabs in the Dunes and mandies in the Jungle. I think it would be a BLAST to find some like-minded players and play through some of the "outdated" content. If such a group of people exists, I would definitely return to play with them.
