The one that provides the most fun for you.

It's impossible to say what the best job is. Do what appeals to you. Try a few different jobs until you find one that suits your playstyle.

Good luck on your choice, whatever it may be.

If there was a best job, wouldn't everyone just play that job?

Every party I've been in for the past month or so has been a NIN tank and with at least 1 WAR/NIN. I haven't partied with a DRG/DRK/WHM(understandable because I'm Gimped Main Healer Job #1)/PLD/BST/RNG/THF/whatever else since I hit level 60.

I get the feeling pretty much every party I'll have from here to 75 will be like this as well.

Ok well.

By "best job" what do you mean? To main heal, well a WHM? To put all other DD to shame within 3 clicks? BLM... To solo, BST?

It depends what you want to do. They is no job that is "the best" as a job that would, well, be the best would in fact be able to be on top at everything. Healing, nuking, tanking, etc. So in my opinion, they isn't a job that is "the best." And Rdm isn't exactly on "top" before someone says that :x Sure they can solo, but take away thier sub job...

the yellow of course to convey that gorgius english smile, what with the yellow corn nuggets you call teeth and all, i think this'd be a **** smashing good idea for alla and the world it's self!

Well, being a PLD myself and taking great pleasure in my job, I can tell you for certain you won't find us around anymore, except for dying in Gods and such.

PLD is dead and SE's next patch won't fix pose a match to NINs' blink tanking skill, nor will it allow us to chain for more #6 constantly and rake 8k xp per hour.

Together with the fact that SE admitted NIN as tank ~1 year ago and gave them awesome tanking gear with +enmity, +evasion and the likes, they're now able to hold as much hate as we do, blink away dmg AND contribute with damge dealt AND debuff.

That being said, try and fit in the new standard pt formation for it is indeed, better.

The best main job is the one you like to play.
The best sub job is the one which gives you main job the most benifits.

The best job is obviously SMN who can do anything. The problem is that anything you do, someone else can do better.
