Awesome thx a lot. And what kind of role are we looking at for WAR? and should I sub NIN for it? Also, what job is the main tank right now?
PLD is still primarily the main tank, but it's a niche role and will take a long investment to be commonly tapped as the guy who gets to come on it.
WAR is the swiss army knife of jobs. On anything but the toughest HNMs it can help tank. Because it can equip the widest variety of weapons, it's the preferred tank for the lesser NMs in the Abyssea expansions when you're going after "blue" drops. At later levels, it gets access to a pretty badass AOE weapon skill called Fell Cleave, which allows a WAR to do crazy amounts of damage to multiple enemies at once (I think of it as the WAR equivalent of the BLM's ga III series.) It's just an all around solid DD.
Level up /NIN, /MNK, and /DNC. And probably /SAM.
