There are many things that I don't really see eye-to-eye on in this thread, so I thoguht i'd say a coupe of them and give my opinion why.
Fighter's Roll: Probably our next best Melee roll. Better then SAM do to X-hit builds and DA not only gains more TP but adds extra Damage as well
Hunter's roll easily surpasses Fighters roll in any situation unless melee are more than 88-89% ACC. Hunter's roll gives a good 10-15% acc on average which is at least
an 11.8% boost to DD at 85% ACC and below.
Fighter's roll w/o a WAR probably gives around 8-10% DA boos on average, which is less than an 8-10% Boost if those jobs have Brutal or /war. It also only allows 2H's to ws 1 hit earlier 8-10% of the time. WIth a war in pty, that goes up to 15%?, those are saying high rolls w/o unlucky's or 11's.
Sam's roll guarantee's in almost all cases an attack round less to 100% TP with or without a SAM in the pty (only time a 2H won't knock a hit off 100% TP is with an unlucky).
Fighter's roll may have a kinda eye candy to it, but it is 3rd-4th in our potential best melee rolls. (SE put DA+2 as an ACP stat, look how much attentsion that 1 stat caused over the job forums, and look how many noobs have it on their Mirke's or w/e becasue they don't know any better).
Just my take on it tho Viska.
Or you could just give them the roll.
Unless they speically ask you not to. Or you ask them not to. I would prefer you to give them the roll. Its about what...20seconds? You can spare that.
I mean really.
As sch I have had brd+cor parties and expected both. But in certain areas,(bird camps) I can live without either buffs. But if we're talking mamools then ya probably gonna need both.
Dont forget why your there.
You obviously have little idea of how Cor works, and just see us as buffs (much like some guys just look @ women as sex objects).
I really don't see how they'd be fine without evokers... were all the DDs gimping it up by subbing NIN or something?
Thing is, most meripo setups still need DD to have some form of dmg mitigation in the group. 2H's /SAM, others /NIN. Are you saying your RDM can successfully heal a couple of mnk/war's and a sam/war in a RDM,BRD,COR,MNK,MNK,SAM setup? DMG mitigation is part of hate bouncing meripo's.
