I don't think dancer's support capabilities will be any more impactful than other ranged dps, though.

Current meta is basically just don't repeat dps classes, don't use machinist if possible, run astrologian plus scholar, and run paladin plus warrior. My group cleared the current standard hard endgame raid with machinist and dark knight though. No one class is especially op, and you're encouraged to use a variety.

Also, as an addendum to what I said before, almost every class but samurai, white mage, and black mage (iirc on the last two anyways) has some kind of unique (though, sometimes only stylistically so) support capability. Monk has brotherhood, red mage has embolden, ninja has trick attack, summoner has both a buff and a debuff depending on pet out, bard has foes requiem, scholar has chain stratagem, astrologian has cards, machinist has hypercharge, etc. How good each one is varies, though. Like hypercharge is ass compared to trick attack.

You want different classes so you can synchronize these support buffs to happen at the same time and multiply their effectiveness.

Yeah there's no class that's nonviable. Every class can clear anything. It's just some classes are more desirable than others.

If you want esoteric but vital support roles, FFXI is still kicking. Every party pretty much needs a corsair (role the dice for different magnitudes on buffs), bard (song buffs), and geomancer (buffs/debuffs specific stats by proximity) in the current meta. And while they might open skillchains, pull/debuff mobs, etc, their damage doesn't actually matter too much.

That's the only reason I ask

If you're coming from XI to XIV expecting it to be like XI, well, that was XIV 1.0 and it flopped so bad the entire game almost just died right then and there. The game director was recently asked if there were going to be 1.0 legacy servers and he died laughing at the question.

I play both pretty casually and they're both fun in their own ways. Neither is that comparable to the other, as both are products of different times.

I mean I am thinking about resubbing for Shadowbringers but I probably will stop as soon as WoW Classic comes out. Gotta do those sweet BRD runs.

Also Nade Duck

milley? :<

Maybe >_>

Also I decided to resub for Shadowbringers. I am going to play a Dancer. I stopped playing a little while ago at like i387 Astrologian or something, I was just doing casual normal mode Omega runs and dailies and nothing else so I was kind of bored.

I logged in today and immediately my right mouse button stopped working correctly, so that's nice.

We did it! We were up until like 1 AM, but we cleared Final! I got the weapon coffer! I think I'm going to hold onto it for ShB and open it for GNB or DNC.
