Hey might catch some flack for this but i'm wondering if rng is still a competitive DD.
I know back in the day ranger's used to be quite good.. but I swear, I have not seen a single one in party since abyssea came out.
I've heard from someone that since abyssea the jobs DOT isn't as good compared to others, but is this true or are they just bad for triggers? (except for blue for piercing)
I try to specialize in jobs and am interested in jobs I don't frequently see around.
Very interested in leveling either this or sch as one of the last jobs I get to level 90, so was trying to get some opinions from any (if any) who still main ranger. Also looks like jishnu's radiance is awesome--yet i've never seen it ingame, any opinions are appreciated.

Late to the thread.
Yes, RNG is still a competitive DD...conditionally. You put in the effort, you pour in the gil; you will get very nice results.
And speaking to the main reason i posted, get Jishnu's Radiance if you are a bow RNG(or Wildfire if you prefer guns). Both Emp WSs are game changers for the job in my opinion. I got JR about a month or so ago now and let me say its just ridiculous. This is one of the few times since i've been playing FFXI that hype i've heard about something is truly justified.
RNG was my first 75 way back when, i'd lvl it back and forth with THF(get some lvls on RNG, farm more cash for ammo on THF, rinse repeat); and i have to say i have not had as much fun on the job since that initial lvling period. Throw in Bounty Shot(which i admit was a laughable JA when i first heard of it-but has been proving quite the gem) and the job just rocks now.
Only thing RNG is missing atm is some form hate management imo. I dont care who or what is tanking for you, dropping huge WSs on a mob every
time is gonna pull it to you. Then as RNG is atm, your face gets kicked in
, even /nin.
