Here Is The Basic Final Fantasy XIV Roles

  As you know, in the game of Final Fantasy XIV, the combat roles include all three facets that classes and jobs might perform. In other words, Final Fantasy XIV's classes and jobs, and roles are a whole.

  The very first role is named: Tank

  As you know, tanks are most specialized in enduring damage and generating enmity (or we can say aggro) so that your enemies will not chase healers or Damage Dealers (usually we abbreviated that as DPS). They have self buffs to support in aggro generation and damage reduction. And of course, you can identify this role just by the blue-colored class/job golden frame icon.

  And right now the base classes and the jobs who own this role are just as follows:

  ①Dark Knight

  ②Gladiator

  ③Gunbreaker

  ④Marauder

  ⑤Paladin

  ⑥Warrior

  The second role is named: Healer

  And when it comes to healers, you need to know that they are specialized in healing your allies with area spells, heal-over-time spells, and target spells. What's more, they also can cleanse conditions from allies and then cast restorative buffs on them. And of course, this role could be identified by the green-colored class and job golden frame icon.

  And right now the base classes and the jobs who own this role are just as follows:

  ①Astrologian

  ②Conjurer

  ③Scholar

  ④White Mage

  ***Arcanist (NOTE: This is also considered as a Magic Ranged DPS (Damage Dealers))

  The third role is named: DPS

  As you know, Damage Dealers (usually we abbreviated as DPS in this game) includes physical damage and magical damage. And what you really need to know is both are aimed at dealing damage in a multiple of ways: area bursts, damage-over-time, magical area spells, precise single-target attacks, summon spells, etc. Some DPS jobs also have the properties of Tank and Healer, but usually, these are quite occasional and these are not the main focus on endgame content. Last but not least, this role can also be identified by the red-colored class/job golden frame icon.

  For more, Damage Dealers (DPS) is divided into three parts and they are:

  Magic Ranged DPS: This means classes or jobs that perform magical ranged attacks.

  Melee DPS: This means classes or jobs that perform closed range attacks and abilities.

  Physical Ranged DPS: This means classes or jobs that perform physical ranged attacks.

  And right now the base classes and the jobs who own those three roles above are just as follows:

  Magic Ranged DPS:

  ***Arcanist (NOTE: This is also considered as a Healer role)

  ②Black Mage

  ③Red Mage

  ④Summoner

  ⑤Thaumaturge

  ***Blue Mage (Limited Job For Magic Ranged DPS)

  Melee DPS:

  ①Dragoon

  ②Lancer

  ③Monk

  ④Ninja

  ⑤Pugilist

  ⑥Rogue

  ⑦Samurai

  Physical Ranged DPS:

  ①Archer

  ②Bard

  ③Dancer

  ④Machinist
