DPS classes from best to worst

#1SuperZayPosted 1/17/2014 3:40:07 AM
Those with third party analyzer programs, how classes generally act in DPS department? I don't need exceptions like when a good high-geared tank easily outdamages bad newbie DPS, I want to see the data from average standard runs for all classes.

Now this is just from personal experience running several dungeons/trials/raids with a lot of different people.Only counting the boss battles and not standard trash.

5. BLM
4. BRD
3. DRG
2. MNK
1. SMN

Not sure how to read this, lol. BLM is the best DPS or SMN?

Your parser is broken if you have SMN as worst dps.

Obviously 5 is the worst and 1 is the best.

I think the single target DPS rankings would be, from best to worst:

MNK
DRG/SMR
BLM
BRD
WAR
WHM/SCH/PLD

BLM and SMN have the highest and most reliable DPS of the entire game.

Topic was about DPS classes, not DPS potential. List is a few classes long.

I was running ACT last week. It's pretty cool, but as a BLM I think I'm missing some damage done by others. On TitanHM as 81BLM I was topping out at about 180. Next best person was DRG at ~165.

Anyways, lately I've been in plenty of parties where someone says, "Our DPS is good" or fine, or great so I assume I'm doing something right.

BRDs damage seems low only because their songs lower their damage considerably. They are still very fun to play.
