Sad that you bring that into an achievement thread when you just posted the reason in a top of the line gear thread for a WS.

Leave them.


Things will get worse. Once you level another job, they'll never let you play DRG or PUP again. If they're like most endgame shells, they'll probably have events daily, and expect good attendance as well. It basically means you'll never even get to play the jobs you're getting gear for because you'll be too busy being their ***** 24/7.

It's better to leave earlier than later. You don't want to build up seniority or points, only to find out a few months later that you can't take their **** anymore.

No better advice was ever given. They are full of it. You should find a new shell that can accept the use of the jobs you have and not complain about you not being useful. What does your endgame shell do? Those 2 jobs can tackle a large number of tasks end game and be useful.

Tiamat- nuke as pup

Khim/Cerb/Ix/Sandworm - drg

ZNM-pup (some require nuking, others require melee)

KB/Aspid - pup, but I haven't taken either to nidhogg. drg might work there

Dynamis/limbus/Einherjar- no problem really for either job, angon great for bosses.

Sky- drg is good here and can participate in zergs

Ground NM's- either job works

I don't see where you would not be able to be useful as either job in any endgame event. I think they're trying to place the blame on your jobs because they don't know how to make use of them. I'd find another shell to join, and before leaving i'd tell them they could have my love halberd and i'll show them where they can stick it...

Ding ding ding. You don't see a lot of cookie-cutter strategies that say "6 BLM, 2 PLD, 2 WHM, 2 BRD, a PUP, and a DRG". Your leaders don't sound like they understand enough about game dynamics to utilize the tools they have if they don't fit neatly into the boring standard stuff they read from someone else's work.

You have a DRG with nice gear (Thalassocrat, AJ, Dusk gear) and 8/8 Polearm merits. They honestly have zero use for a powerful melee DD? If they have any SAM, WAR, MNK and they aren't giving them sh*t, I'd be *******

And PUP, while rarely the best for any particular endgame event, is also pretty much never the worst. Can you nuke as well as a BLM? No. But Tier IV elemental nukes from a merited automaton are certainly no joke, and you'll contribute a whole lot more than a non-mage on fights where magic damage is useful. Can you melee like a SAM? No again. But once again, certainly a competent DD (and hey, you can always use your DRG there too so there's not much point in even arguing about melee).

If you aren't in a shell that can accept your well-geared and well-played jobs for what they are and try to find a way to properly utilize them, you will indeed be forced into the mind-numbing boredom of repeating cookie cutter strategies and being a slave to the shell.

I understand stuff like "we have very few [insert job here], we should recruit some or if anyone wants to level it that would be appreciated". But I don't get "your two jobs are no good, level something else because we say so".

Ditch 'em now.

Kind of an old semi-achievement , but got 5500 WS points (which worked out to be nearly 4 merits in exp) and enough tags to unlock Stringing Pummel (Need 3 successful runs if memory serves correctly, and I have 4 tags).
