You guys cover a lot of reasons why jobs are good DD, but I read all the posts I couldn't help but wonder why nobody spoke about Ninja as a DD. Requim post I really liked since he listed jobs and their ace. Even then he doesn't have ninja on the list so does this mean Ninja endgame is craptastic?
I'm a 75 nin and <3 the job but even I wonder at times where do they stand Endgame. It seems only good for /drk or /rdm tanking, hell even if you get a kikoku still fail @ DDin a HNM. You can say ninja have enfeebles and nukes but nukes just fail and enfeebling is left to the rdms (and rightfully so). So where do ninja fit into the equation or is when it comes to endgame your just a back up tank to pld/nin cuz they acutally do dmg with Atonment.
P.S. as I read what I posted it a rant but wth post it anyways maybe someone can shine some light on the topic lol
the more an HNM/god fight is like a merit party (read: lots of buffs from BRD, COR, food, and feint/angon), the more NIN can get up there as a decent DD. in merits they don't particularly belong "at the top of the parse" (especially since they usually sacrifice some personal DoT for the good of the party), but they are very strong when played well, geared right (haste/DW), and properly buffed. これ Edited, Mar 10th 2009 3:48am by milich
