Hey guys - lately I've been wondering abit about this myself so... If you could have any changes made to Dnc what would you want?
I love playing as DNC quite abit - its one of the most fun, engaging jobs I've played on FFXI and I feel like it has so much untapped potential just as it is. However, there are times I get abit frustrated about it. On my server I never really get to do a whole lot because DNC isn't a job that many people want doing events with them, so if I get to go its usually as a "tag-along" job if people aren't getting lucky getting as many people as they want. In Einherjar my LS puts me in the "left-overs" party, despite my pleas to go into a DD/tank party to keep everybody hasted with my fully merited Haste Samba or quickly heal a tank if they take a big hit. I feel that because DNC is a Hybrid job, it has abit more trouble finding a niche as some of the other jobs do. Even with the awesome new merits sometimes I feel like DNC could still use a power boost, cuz there are some times (especially in end game situations) where I feel like I'm not operating as efficiently as some of the other jobs (like handling a big AOE with an inability to cure faster due to linked timers.). It may just be the playerbase's ignorance about us, but if you guys could add some improvements to DNC what would you want?
-Lowered/seperate waltz/floruish recast timers?
-A new dance that would give an effect that would make its support more dramatic and desireable? (Like an AOE regain or something)
-Divine Waltz II/III?
-Auto-Regain/a larger TP bar? (maybe abit much...No Foot Rise makes getting TP abit easier now)
-Being made into the new Tank job? (Fan Dance and the +emnity on etoile gloves made me abit suspicious about what SE was planning with Dnc...)
It's more likely that none of the improvements we want would be implimented but if you had control what would you do to make dancer even better? Personally I used to joke around about an ability that toggles our HP waltzes to MP to be able to shoot 700+ MP into mages and tanks with a CW4 - broken as hell but it would be pretty interesting.
