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.

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

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.
