DD PLD rantFollow

So I needed a buffer on PLD today and didnt really feel like going to campaign. Tossed my flag up and got a level sync invite to azouph isle @ 67. OK great equip DD gear grab a stack of echos and go have a good time, Hate was decent MP wasnt an issue for the most part mobs were dying was a faitrly good lvl 67 party.

Now here comes the "good" part. RDM and the blm we had leaves reps themselves with a scholar and another rdm. Midway through 3rd mob the new rdm says "wheres your af body?" I equip it for the rest of that imps short painful life and responded to his tell "right here I have it with me" His respone was "Id prefer you to wear a full defense set up to help with MP management, but I can work with it if you dont want to. If you want to be a DD you should go get a DD job"

I figure ok, Ill play along. put on my normal tanking gear, I had a whole 5 defense more.

Now Im thinking ok, maybe this guy doesnt understand pld DD or the concept of it, or maybe this is his 1st job to 75. I leave party to go to dynamis and check him just to see. Nope hes a 75 pld, iirc his comment is something about "PLD king"

I mean seriously, shouldnt someone that has pld @ 75 know that vs imps a DD pld with even halfway decent DD gear holds hate just as good or better than a turtle? Am I just doing it wrong?

youll find there are a lot of people out there who say dumb sh*t. I had one guy once tell the pld he shouldnt flash on colibris because all the hate of the flash is lost IF he was to get flashed back..

taking enmity+ and not getting hit for an attack round or two.. id consider it a good tradeoff >.>

Wearing a DD body at mire is probably the best thing you can do, a majority of the time youll be amnesia'd and therefore your DoT and ability to land your hits will come in handy. Not only for hate but also for for extra damage.

If pld had a higher damage rating for multi hit swords it would do a lot better. 35/34 isnt that high vs 49/42.

On DD potential, Id rank pld a 6/7 out of 10. Sadly being a dual weilder type of job its suffers a bit of acc like most do and therefor need to be geared toward acc which loses out on the att/haste most of the time. Im not sure which would be stronger pld/nin swordchucks or pld/sam.

Quoted for truth.

Most oldschool PLDs don't get DDpld either- It took me a bit to be sold on the concept. Friends tell me about getting kicked from PTs because they wear Hauby, that sh*t is madness. I can recall going at it with a few idiots when leveling about what gear I was wearing. Bottom line would be what's the harm in tanking naked as long as you were doing it well?

I boast, well advertise, my Craft Skills in my Bazaar comment ; ;

I think what you found was someone who leveled PLD in 2004 and hasn't really played it since.
Sadly I have a friend like this, He was 75 PLD in 03 or 04 and the only thing he used PLD for is Dynamis (plus maybe misc farming/running around) he ever refuses to level NIN to sub :(

Not all of us 'Old school' PLD have refused to move with the times though! I'm more then happy for any of my PLD's to slap on a DD set, oh please slap on a DD set, please.

Most of the time I get "Lol DD thats silly i'm wearing Def gear because it's better, i'm tanking not doing damage just because you have 75 PLD doesn't make you an expert!"

Highly incorrect. When determining the damage ability on a weapon you have to take into account its delay value. It looks like your trying to compare Maneater to Joyeuse? I can tell you right now, Joy wins that argument pretty handily.

DPS is (Damage * 60)/Delay. For Joy we can calculate the synthetic delay as 224/1.45. So 154.48. (35*60)/154.48 = 13.5933 (depending on how you truncate the decimals it comes to 13.59 - 13.6).

Joyeuse Lv 70
D35 Delay 224
45% for DA activation
DPS: 13.6

Company Sword Lv 70
D46 Delay 264
Latent: Each PT member (over 2)is +2D
Effect on Full latent: D54
DPS: 12.27 = (54*60)/264

Man Eater Lv 73
D43 Delay 276
Latent: Acc+5 Atk+18 D:49
DPS: 10.65 = (49*60)/276

Justice Sword Lv 73
D34 Delay 236
Special:55% DA from ammo consumption
DPS: 13.39 = (34*60)/(236/1.55) so (2040/(152.25)

And for sh!ts and giggles,

Perdu Hangar Lv 73
D38 Delay 225
Latent: Acc+5 Atk+15 D:44
DPS: 11.73 = (44*60)/225

Lesson to take away from this is, don't judge a weapon by its D value but instead by its DPS rating vs available stats. The fSTR formula favoring low delay weapons (because its irrespective of actual delay, more hits per minute means more D added from fSTR) combined with swords having some of the best DPS in the game, is the reason SE needed to do the 2H fix. 2H weapons still have low DPS, but gain in accuracy and attack, allowing for more haste or higher hit rates to balance this out. Also don't get trapped in the Big Number Syndrome (BNS), just because it had the largest number on the screen doesn't mean your dealing the most damage over a period of time.

Yep I've had people say the EXACT same things. And this was a few weeks ago. There are people in this game that seriously have NO CLUE what their talking about, and their usually the ones who thump their chests and list the HNM's they've "tanked" as proof they know how a PLD should dress in XP.

I could go on all night about know-it-all PLDs that I've watched tank, that would make your heads explode.

But I want to sleep, so I'll just note the Aegis PLD that uses full Mermans/Coral+1/Resentment Cape so he can take -86% Magic Damage Taken with capped Shellra V that his LS requires. >.>

I don't know if the relic holder without a clue, or the LS that encourages it, is worse.

.../facepalm

On a side note an LS buddy of mine convinced me to go level sync 64 with him on my WAR and get a few merits and kill some time. Our PLD we picked up had a kraken club with merits and capped skill but full tank gear on. Even with all that skill it was still a whiff fest at bird camp in the thickets.

PLD had to leave so I figured I'd swap to my own PLD and keep the party going, besides I was itching to see how I would stack up to the former PLD. Threw on all my DD gear, my sword and board, and headed out. Long story short with my full DD gear managed to outdamage the kraken club PLD, get better xp, and a hell of a good time to boot.

Moral of the story is just because people think they know what they're doing doesn't mean they know what they're doing.

#16hitoseijuro, Posted: Apr 03 2009 at 2:27 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You obviously missed the point. What does suggesting that if our sword of choice ie joytoy had a higher damage rating, that it would pump out more damage have to do with any of what you just tried to point out? The comparison was to what you would normally see on a war (change the 42 to 40). It wouldnt be game breaking if say joytoy had a higher rating, say around the 40s for a pld.

A) Paladin doesn't evade, the -evasion is moot 
B) The -AGI is negligible and won't be noticed for other defensive traits. 
C) Haubergeon is only 2 DEF less than Gallant Surcoat.  
D) +20 HP and 4 VIT is negligibly unnoticeable as well. 
E) Enmity isn't worth full timing.

Good night, I'm here all week, try the veal.

Imo, if SE didnt want plds to do some kind of damage, than atonement wouldnt of been able to pump out the potential damage it could, and instead had some kinda emnity rise affect. Like some kinda sentinel type of ws. However it being able to produce good damage and add on hate through it, just makes me wonder if SE has any DD thoughts on pld.

We have access to a lot of DD gear that drg drk and war have access to, and yet there are some pieces , stand out pieces like aces helm, and Ebody(just examples) that im curious of why we didnt get them. They dont feel game breaking for a pld imo, just curious :3



Actually, I believe Atonement was added specifically FOR tanking. Before Atonement, PLD's damage on anything with very high defense meant almost nothing for hate production. Job abilities, curing, and SATA were all the hate tools a PLD had.

Also, I would say that for a job that was intended primarily as a tanking job, PLD has huge DD potential when geared properly. I think that further increases in available DD gear or damage producing job traits/abilities would be nice, but somewhat unnecessary. In my opinion, PLD is extremely balanced as it is.

I never stated anywhere where it was specifically meant to be used at. I said that its able to deal damage. Damage we werent able to pump out at that speed(excluding excalibur). And because of this, Im intrigued to know if SE will ever have any plans to give us another damaging goody.

In the end the answer is - Excalibur (expensive answer at that)



@Siralin
Words cant describe it only dots lots and lots of dots
........................................................

Please tell me mog bonanza. I believe its been 2 years since a Dring has dropped on ifrit, its a crying shame for those who have one. Its not a game breaking piece, butfor any pld that wants to complete their job its one of those items to work hard for......only to read that :'(

I've noticed that the cockiest PLD are the ones that full AF it with the exception of Adaman feet.

I've tried explaining MANY times to people about why DD PLD is better. I've managed to convince ONE (yes...ONE!!) person who then sent me a /tell about much better he's holding hate and only missing a few points of defense.

/sigh

It really annoys me to no end seeing turtle PLD ;/

I believe SE added Atonement primarily as a hate building tool for HNM type fights. If you consider that in merit parties you may be able to get a few somewhat decent numbers by spamming Sentinel + job abilities, the WS of choice remains Vorpal Blade. The killing pace is usually just too fast to take advantage of Atonement.

I think this was SE's objective with Atonement:
Provide PLDs with a great new hate tool to level the playing field (somewhat) with DDs against very high defense/high level mobs, while at the same time limiting its usefulness in merit parties.

Why would they do this? Probably to ensure PLD does not become unbalanced. When you consider that in merit parties my PLD/NIN can already break even with if not slightly out-DD my THF/NIN with very similar gear on anything except Colibri (and even then the gap isn't that huge), adding more DD gear availability or DD abilities to the job could potentially break it. As much as I hate to say it, a PLD shouldn't be able to keep up with similarly geared heavy DDs. I'm willing to bet that SE will try to make sure that doesn't happen.

If SE does decide to add some kind of DD enhancement to PLD, I suspect that it will be in the form of hate related capabilities for HNM style battles just as Atonement was.

Nobody tells me how to tank. They want to tank, they can tank. If they say something useful, I'll think about it. I'm the tank; I'm getting hit; I'll wear what is in my and the party's best interest to wear. I don't care if you're 75 PLD and we're only in the mire; you cast, I get hit, that's the deal we made.

Maybe later over brewskis we'll compare notes, not in the heat of battle.

Agreed, im just pointing out that, this ability just happens to come in the form of damage(very decent damage to boot) and worthwhile on HNMs. And I hope SE will think about this and keep on track with it and something close in mind in the near future.

@ Siralin
Ah ok, Im still kicking myself for procrastinating so much last year and not participating (._. ) Still remember the wifey telling me, "dont forget to buy your balls babe" *sigh*

Just tonight I got into an arguement with a few PLDs in an ls of mine over DD vs Turtle, and some responces were just sad:
"PLD that wear acc rings are stupid"
"DD PLD are just mp sponges"
"HP+ and enmity+ are the best thing a PLD can use in exp"
"PLD isn't supposed to do damage"
"My PLD is 75, STFU noob"

and my personal favorite:
"I don't need acc on PLD. My acc is 95% because I'm mithra" -_-

I tried to convince them, but no luck. In any case, I'll be DD PLD until turtle yields higher exp/hr.

The first real instance I ran into where someone lectured me about wearing DD gear was at lvl 54 PLD taking on Colibri. I knew I was a level too low and even warned the group but they took me in anyway. Things were going well when I took a few Pecking Flurries to the face and the RDM had to actually cast Cure on me. Then, the lecturing began.

RDM: "You need VIT+ gear"
Me: "Ok"

We're raking in the EXP and the poor RDM has to cast Cure on me after another barrage of Pecking Flurries.

RDM: "Seriously, you need better tank gear."
Me: "I'll look into it."

I'm getting annoyed about this time and just waiting for this RDM to say something else (by the way I was leader of the party at this point...just a side note). So, inevitably, I see him say something else and without even reading it I flew off the handle.

Me: "If you don't like the way I'm tanking, you guys can find another tank. I really don't mind. You've been razzing me since I got here."
RDM: "I have?"
Me: "..."

Then the RDM promptly tells me to look up in the chat log and sure enough he was complimenting me on how well I kept hate and how he'd never seen a PLD in DD gear keep hate that well. So, needless to say, I felt like a real arse.

So, the moral of the story is...DD PLD rocks!

Couldn't be more freaking common... worst if it comes from a Japanese player, then isn't just true is dogma.

On the other hand we should get use to the idea that pick up groups aren't in any sense perfect, I usually stay as long as it's worth, I leave once it crossed the line between nonsense and sucky xp.

I tried to convince them, but no luck. In any case, I'll be DD PLD until turtle yields higher exp/hr.
Couldn't be more freaking common... worst if it comes from a Japanese player, then isn't just true is dogma.

On the other hand we should get use to the idea that pick up groups aren't in any sense perfect, I usually stay as long as it's worth, I leave once it crossed the line between nonsense and sucky xp.

It's pretty sad. I had my very first ever party with another PLD who used DD gear last week. It was pretty rad, he kept hate well even against my WAR/SAM Raging Rush spam lvl 63 at Colibri, even though we didn't have a RDM to refresh him, and covered me / cured me when it was hopeless.

Then, he got called away on RL business and got replaced. By a JP PLD. In AF except Marine M boots instead of AF feet. With >80% MP at all times. Who used cover on me while I was on the other side of the mob. /wrists
