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?
