Drg is more than capable at putting the hurt on something. In abyssea, both sam and drg get the short stick on procing as they can only do a limited number. Blu gets even less, but they are also used for magic procs so a hair more popular in that regard.

Otherwise, your kinda vague on what you are looking for. Party and a little solo? Both blu and drg have plenty of solo and party capability. Drg is the stronger DD compared to blu. Id say generally has an edge on sam usually as well, but its not like night and day. Blu is a great deal more versatile as sam and drg are pretty much just fit the role of beatstick for most content.

Im not sure what else to tell you. Drg is a very capable DD with a bit of solo potential via /mage running over weak-ish mobs, but you wont be soloing any HNMs or anything. Obviously we, the drg community, like drg.

If theres any reason to tell you to play drg its in your own words:

If you 'like' the job, then play it. If it turns out lame, stop playing it and try something else. As long as you like the job, keep playing it.

That sounds like the worst advice ever. As a matter of fact, I'm gonna go level BRD cause I hate it so much!

Edit: This post was sarcasm >.>

I'd be very curious to know what you TP in. WS gear is a little more obvious ;)

This is my TP gear on brd for now.

This is my Rudras/Evis set on brd.

A few upgrades remain, but its pretty fun :P The only really funky part is the speedy boots in TP set. There just isnt really any good DD related feet besides dusk, and I already have 25% haste and 1 piece of dusk (hands) so id rather not be SUPER slow running for 0.6% haste. There are virtually no DD boots worth noting for TP, so i jsut put on the fast brd boots to counter the dusk slow run because tehre isnt really anything better to put there.

Ideally, i would get Dusk+1 feet and use some atk gloves, but meh. Havent bothered yet.
