Still undecided between Mrd/War and Gld/Pld.

I love the play-style of the Warrior, but my biggest concern is that come endgame, Warrior is going to be gimped compared to Paladin. I'm reading more and more about how PLD is the Main tank and Warrior is the Off Tank.

Anyone with any insight/advice?

Paladin. That's all I can say.

But have you seen Paladin's relic and AF?

I worry the same thing TC. BUT, I have heard that what the paladin has over warrior in defense, the warrior makes up for in high HP

Warrior has some concept flaws that don't make its future prospects look rosy in endgame.

-the high hp/ lower mitigation concept is terrible. Healers have to cure warriors more than paladins to keep their hp at a given level. Critical flaw in a game where mobs will take several dozen life bars from you by the time you beat them. Warriors waste mp. Again, critical flaw.

-the AoE/crowd tank concept relegates it to a small claims hero. You don't tank bahamut. You tank his imps.

I would go paladin. Warrior as 2nd job.

If Square pulls off this reboot of FF14, it'll be the biggest comeback in videogaming since the first Final Fantasy.

Depends on what you like. Warriors have alot of abilties that heal you over time. My thing is I dont want to be the boring tank that stands there in one spot and watches my rotation. I want to be the tank where the Raid leader says off tank! get those mobs! The main tank will have 1 job and only 1 job. While the off tank will have many things to do. To me that is more important. That is all.

Paladin will be easier endgame since like someone said they're better for single target...which means they will be on the boss and only the boss the whole time. War will have to constantly watch the group and keep aggro from the adds...much more engaging but it's w/e your play style is...both will have a place imo.

Thanks for the insight guys/gals. I guess I'll roll a PLD first and level a War second. I just hate how simple PLD is the first 20 levels or so.
