Currently I am subbing /sam for my dancing for everyday things. I was wondering is there something special I should Sub at certain levels or not... I have also though about subbing RDM since it gives the ability to enhance weapon attacks with magic... Thank you!

/NIN for solo/tanking/general purpose
/WAR if you want to focus on DD side

/RDM En-spells shouldn't be so great with half capped enhancing magic skills and the lack of enhancing gear.

Is /sam still a viable sub? I am working on it now, so that I have it available, should the need arise, but I never see any dnc/sam. Well really, I don't think I see anything except dnc/nin. My guess is TP gain is so great inside Aby that it isn't necessary right now? I haven't tried dnc/war yet, but I did level up war as a sub because I read on here that it is a good sub for dnc. What is the main reason for this? The DA job trait? JA? Since I haven't used it yet, I am curious what you use from the /war arsenal.

Thanks!

/WAR is nice for Berserk, which makes it pretty much our best DD subjob. Its trait doesn't stack with Saber Dance when you're DDing, so that doesn't matter so much.

/SAM is nice for when you're playing support, but you take so much more damage /SAM than /NIN that you don't come out ahead on TP if you're going to be tanking.

/SAM is viable. I prefer it to /WAR when soloing or doing relatively low risk things. Extra skillchains for massive damage. /WAR's Double Attack JT goes away when I Saber Dance, Berserk increases the amount of self-healing I need to do since I can't dodge everything, and Aggressor just makes that situation worse. Really, any situation I'd be /WAR, I go /SAM instead.

/WHM is also viable. Haste stacks nicely with the ridiculous attack speed we can get. You will eventually need some sort of refresh to keep it going long term though.

Thanks!

I will keep working on /sam and then I will have all of the viable subs available to me!
