Good in the higher lvls as stated b4 with blink and all that good stuff but dual wield and stuff is pretty much a joke below lvl 74 cause u need Utsemi: Ni to shine with Nin sub. War/Nin below that lvl is usually made a laughing stock in my pt's with meh - low dmg.
I wonder what parties you're in. Probably poor ones. Judging from your other - fairly low-quality - posts, I do not take your statements seriously, but will comment on them to avoid them making a wrong impression on newish people.
NIN sub is good anytime. Basically when your WAR is 24+ and you get Utsusemi, you become a very good tank. 50+, when you can dual wield really powerful axes and get delay reductions, double attack AF bonus on both axes, etc, your cumulative damage is enormous. I outdamage DRKs on regular basis subbing NIN.
Samurai is a great subjob 60+ up till that point its ok but not the BEST possible choice.
SAM is the best offensive sub. WAR/SAM is the most powerful melee in the game regarding cumulative damage. DRK/THFs SA-TA'd Guillotine is more powerful than a head-on Raging Rush, but a WAR/SAM 60+ can Raging Rush every couple of seconds, for incredible total damage. You pay for that with only sub-par defense, however.
Below lvl 60 this has to be the best combo if u wish to tank or be a 2ndary tank in ur pt.
No. WAR/MNK is an okay tank, but not the best. WAR/NIN is better. With NIN sub you take less damage, have a lot of power with Dual Wield (devastating when you get Rampage), and have the whole range of ninjutsu to grab hate and enfeeble at your disposal.
With Great Axe and Trick Attack + Strumwind u got a winning combo my friend.
This is what I have been doing below 50. Dual Wield and Rampage are better. You just haven't seen it yet.
If ur WAR can sometimes out dmg a DRK in ur pt then ur doing something VERY right
I regularly outdamage DRKs. I gain TP faster, have more attacking power and accuracy with Dual Wield and powerful axes, and they just don't have anything that compares with Rampage. The first thing they get that is of the same caliber is Guillotine at 60.
will be very much appreciated in the pt cause if the PLD gets into a bind
What do you need a PLD for? :D Tank AND do damage with NIN sub ^.^
Nin is meh truly its meh i've been Nin and i felt so useless its not even funny but then again i only went to lvl 26 so plz dont take my Nin experience seriously cause i prolly dont have any compared to some ppl lol.
Don't take him seriously at all, he has no clue what he's talking about.
Although from pting with War/Nin i wouldnt invite them into my pt unless i was dead stuck
I wouldn't join your party even if you invited me.
Mnk, Thf, and Sam all have their advantages making them equals past lvl 60.
Let me reiterate again:
1) NIN #1 sub overall.
2) SAM #1 for offense post-60.
3) MNK mid-of-the-road, okay at both, not top at either.
4) THF reasonable attacker, poor tank, fades post-60 to make way for SAM and NIN.
5) Everything else: either for soloing (WHM) or simply esoteric.
