Which of the three types of classes in FFXIV do you you mostly play?

DPS, in any game.

Why only FF XIV? :T

DPS. Healer is too much pressure :ohdear:

I don't play XIV, but if I were to, it would be healer. I've always been a healer in MMOs. And it's a horrible, terrible, not very good curse, but it's one I can't seem to shake.

What role would you play if not limited to FFXIV?

I'm a healer personally because I love Magic n Stuff. Tanks are a class I'll probably never play though.

I like DPS and Healing. Not tanking though, that's too much pressure. Healers not healing, tanks fault for dieing. DPS rushes ahead and dies, tanks fault for not holding aggro. Among other stuff. I'd just as rather stick to punching things.

And none of these roles are unique to FF14 anyway!

If I played, I'd probably play a tank.

But I really don't care to play MMOs any more.

I was a tank in the FFXI trial I played and when I play FFXIV I want to be a cat paladin.

I don't play XIV, but I do play an MMO and I play a healer. Is it for control over life and death? Perhaps. Perhaps....

I liked playing a Monk (healer) in Guild Wars 1. in 2 there are no healers! I play more of a tank/dps hybrid in GW2. I never got into the other big MMOs that actually use the unholy trinity :p

I play mostly DPS and Healer. I have played Tank too, so I guess all 3, I'm more comfy with healing and DPS though.

I was new to MMO's when I started FFXIV and had little clue as to what role to pick. I went with Archer without knowing about what each class was supposed to do. I knew nothing about what enmity was either.

I enjoyed it but decided to give Conjurer a try. I enjoyed it a lot. I liked DPS'ing with the heal class and reposing mobs in earlier dungeons. It was the first class I've gotten to lvl50. I did some end-game with it and got my Relic weapon, when I decided to give the tank class Gladiator a try.

I like tanking more because I'm better at it than the others. I use PS4 pad and this class suits it a lot. Healer takes up a lot of slots with different macros etc. and I have to switch between 3 slots to utilise them all. At least with PLD or WAR I only need to use two. I think I'm just a better fit tanking compared to the rest.
