OK not sure how to say this but 80% of the dnc I partied with in Abyssea play GOD AWFUL. 50% of the ppl that I play with in Abyssea play horrid. But back to DNC player's I partied with. I played as DNC main last week in Abyssea went from 76-80 capped on Bugards. I was DNC/SAM and I pulled when the thf went afk (so I pulled for 5-15min when the thf had to put kids to bed ect.), cured anyone in alliance that was in yellow/red hp as well as curing the puller, at the same time still doing 700-900 DE on the mobs, keeping sambas up to help the party as a whole do nice damage over time.
Well the last 2 days I've played as cor trying to go from 76-80 and this is what I've seen. Dnc not using sambas at all. They are using Saber Dance fulltime and ws when they can (wich is pathetic when you see them do 200-300 DE). I suggested to them maybe useing Building Flourish will help out your ws #'s and they did and did better but still how do you not know this at that level? The dnc's I partied with didn't so much as cure unless it was themselves. Poorly geared (str+2 rings) except for the Aurore set. As a result with no help with the cures ppl would occaisionally die usually the same ppl the puller or the person curing the puller. When I send tells to these diff dnc's they all same thing "They are full time DD's and let the healer jobs worry about the healing"
I know alot of ppl half-ass in Abyssea and pretty much everythng game related.. but c'mon.
Sad thing is I noticed this type of play in other jobs. Like cor using lvl 1 ammo even ws's, I played with a bst that didn't use a pet at all for 4hrs, blu that fulltime in relic or Aurore set. These are jobs I play as so I pay attention to how ppl use them. But is this Abyssea messing up the already tainted skills of ppl that play and making them play even worse than already thought possible? Am I playing DNC wrong and just worry about Saber Dance (wich to me doesn't do much over Haste samba), ws, not cure? If I didnt see 7 dnc play like this in 3 days I would think they suck. But maybe I'm playing dnc wrong.
