I played for a number of years and due to some unavoidable circumstances (divorce, moves, etc.) I have been off the horse for about 2 years now, but lately I've really been missing the thrill of the game and want to come back... herein lies the problem, I left ffxi as a SAM75 and after looking at all the new additions to all the jobs, coupled with a few of my personal preferences, I very much want to be a pld main when I rejoin, however everything I am reading about the added content gameplaywise, by players, seems to be very anti-pld, and almost outright making the job obsolete... my questions are simply this: 1) is there any actual merit to this impression I'm getting or is it simply ranting? 2) either way, will it be worth joining the ranks of the pld when I can or will it simply waste my time and I should consider taking the reins of sam again or another dd job?
playing other rpg games I simply fell in love with tanking and tho I know the tanking in ffxi is a little slower paced than in other games there is just something exhilarating about being responsible for keeping everyone else on their feet to keep doing their part of bringing the mob down, so some good news about pld would make my day lol...
any answers to my two measly questions or constructive comments would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance
