When I am around doing day-to-day operation, like helping LS folks, random battles, and even missions, I use DNC a lot. Some of the criticism against using DNC in end game, even if justified, is not the complete story -- as not everything in end game is like TP feeding bad, high def - hit for zero enemies. I go to Dynamis, Nyzul Isle and sometimes Einj. as DNC.
I know some players want to have extreme efficiency, and ultimate job combinations and gear, but FFXI is not rocket science anyway. After you get the basics right, any number game you play beyond is playing against your own obsession but not the enemy.

Art for the sake of art itself is an idle sentence.
Art for the sake of truth, for the sake of what is
beautiful and good — that is the creed I seek.
- George Sand
A designer knows he has achieved perfection,
not when there is nothing left to add,
but when there is nothing left to take away.
- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
