My LS is about to do the airship fight, and I got into argument with LS paladin about which tank is better for it, nin/war or pld/war. Back in the day (years ago) when I did the fight for myself and helped various previous linkshell statics with it, we wouldn't even dream about using pld tanks, if we had a choice, because of those godawful en-paralyze and en-stun. The static of friend of mine went 0/11 with pld tank because she (the pld) was stun locked or paralyze locked (even with whm spamming paralyna) the whole time, and then they went 1/1 when she leveled nin to 60 and went that instead.
But this LS pld claims that pld is way superior tank in PM6-4 and their group with old char went 1/1 with pld/war tank and they didn't even need to use any meds. Were the weapons overall, and en-effects in particular, nerfed that badly?
Although personally I'm not inclined to believe much that he says about that fight if he claims that the only use for brd is a cure bot, and that 3 support* is sure-fire way to lose, but thought I'd ask anyways.
*blu counts as a support too!
Edit add: Not to bash paladins, it's a great job and personally I love playing pld and hate playing nin, but being perma-stunned or having every action paralyzed is awful.
