Juggling difficulty Medium (easy come, easy go) Mild Much
Benefits from one's cross-classables Some Useless Essentia (mandatory, damage buff)
Ease of soloing Decent R.I.P. squishlord Good

 

Game players have their sayings for their chosen jobs.

 

"As a caster main, I have the least issues with Dragoon. Keeping up Blood of the Dragon isn't too difficult, and if all else fails just say screw overall dps and abuse Geirskogul (mostly in the 'shit he's going to jump just use it' mentality). Also Battle Litany and your ranged will love you."

 

"I find MNK is super fun with having to hit positionals and forbidden chakra feeling like it hits like a truck, but it has poor raid utility. DRG can be fun, but I find BotD too strict and I simply do not like the 3.x rotation compared to the 2.x rotation."

 

"Ninja is the most flexible and useful. It only has a positional on its 3rd step of the chain, which means PUG tanks can't fuck you over by spinning mobs around unlike monk. More importantly, no fight breaks will ever make you lose Houton because it lasts 70 seconds and is renewed by a 3rd chain skill."
