    FFXIV Character

    Lagooshka Luvtruck (Balmung)

    Default

    Replace the thief with a black belt and you have it. Thiefs are a worthless class in this game. I never run unless it's against sorcerers in the Ice Cave and by the time they get black magic the magic is weak and pointless.

    I think the reason thief is good is because you can flee more often and you can use black magic like temper and haste which are helpful. I know that Blackbelts deals more damage overall but the fleeing power is just way too good.

    Fighter
    Thief
    Red Mage
    White Mage

    vs

    Fighter
    Blackbelts
    Red Mage
    White Mage

    Which do you think is better or do you think there is a better one?

    Thieves don't flee one iota better than any other class. They may have changed it for DoS, but in the classic FF they were completely useless. Even the Black Magic they get a Red Mage can cast.

    My personal favorite:
    Fighter - Fighter - Red Mage - White Mage

    I don't include a Black Mage because I found them to be woefully underpowered in the second half of the game. The most useful spells by far are Fire2 and Temper, both of which a Red Mage can cast for just as good of an effect. I always hear about how much damage Black Belts do, but playing up till the earth crystal I was still having him drag my party down. Even with a little less attack power in the end the having an extra tank is well worth it.

    Masamune to one Knight, Excalibur to the other and Sun Sword to the Red Wizard.

    Even if you are running with only one Fighter, you then have the choice of Excallibur/Knight - Masamune/RW or Masamune/Knight - Sun Sword/RW. Either way one of the two is performing sub optimally.

    #1 - F|F|RM|WM, #2 - F|Bb|RM|WM and F|T|RM|WM a far distant #3. From what I read about the game having a Black Belt instead of a second fighter sounds like it should be better, but I had a poor experience with it. In any case the two parties are very close.

    If you have Fighter, Fighter, Red Mage and White Mage can you still able to flee with high percentage?

    I have a question about Haste and Temper. Does it run out when it is cast? Because I like both spells and having just one Red Mage wouldn't I have to keep casting them?

    Best team. 'Nuff said.
    When we dance, it looks just like Fire.

    When we sing, it sounds the same tone.

    You remembered to keep them unequipped right? Cause frankly BB's have always done just as much damage as Fighter/Knights in my games. Yes the ultimate weapons make Knights pull ahead but I find BB's make the overall journey less tedious and they are still infinitely better than thieves.

    I usually like having a BB simply cause they are not only powerful, but because they are low maintenance. Unlike a Fighter who is going to require you to grind at every location to get enough gil to properly upgrade him, and then you have to factor in mages in your party as well, who need spell purchases, I like having one character who needs one piece of equipment and goes on their way. The fact he's the second physically strongest class is a plus as well.

    You never know. I run into tons of people who've played the game for years and not know that. Still, I've never had a BB under-perform from a Fighter beyond the very last stretch (literally the last dungeon) of the game so you can see where I'm skeptical.

    Yes, I know that the Red Mage is superior to the Black Mage
    but I just love the sprite.

    So I have heard from many sources. I think I just got a bad one.
    To be fair, I only played to the earth crystal before giving up.
