Dancer is the better of the two when leveling up solo, since it allows you to be self sufficient in terms of curing. You don't need to worry about MP, and the cures you gain from waltzes are fairly potent for their level.
Samurai is the better choice when it comes to end game situations. Hasso and Seigan + Third Eye are amazing offensive and defensive tools (respectively), giving you Str, Acc, and Job Ability Haste (for Hasso) and a lower recast time for Third Eye as well as the chance of it lasting for multiple attacks (for Seigan). There's also Meditate, which gives you 60 TP every few minutes, and the Store TP traits, which helps you to reach 100 TP for a weaponskill in a fewer number of hits, in turn increasing your weaponskill frequency. Lastly, there's Sekkanoki, which causes your next weaponskill to only use 100 TP, so any extra you have will remain following the weaponskill. This allows for you the possibility of popping off two weaponskills back to back, if you have enough TP.
