... Why? Just been in a totorak lvling roulette. There was a tank mass pulling stuff grabbing like 12 mobs at a time. I was playing DRG and the other dps was a NIN. We had no aoe whatsoever. Healer had to spam heals on the tank and could not dps.

Am I missing something here? Why would you do this?

Its faster than slogging through it all. And if the tank was already overgeared for the content even if the gear is downscaled their AoE alone will likely be shredding the mobs decently hard.

With a Dragoon and Ninja being the DPS, how much faster was it going? If the tank was a Warrior, they could've put out some AOE, and a Dark Knight could technically do it, but if that was a Paladin then there was no AOE going on.

That was a bad tank not realizing his composition.

I think the default setting for tanks now is "pull everything."

It's hard to switch that off. Must have been a slog.

big pulls are fun but not really needed in low level content

the real question is what happened to big pulls in lvl 50+ dungeons, i havent gotten a single big pull in lvl 50/60 roulettes since stormblood came out

Shame that the TC said that he and the other dps were at a level where they had no dps and if the tank was a Paladin, they probably didn't have any real aoe either which means the whole time was spent with the tank having a massive amount of mobs hitting him and spamming flash while both dps could only single target and the healer was forced to heal spam the whole time instead of being able to help dps. Even if the tank was a War or Drk, I doubt their one aoe alone would have been enough to make such a large pull worth doing. In the end it was just yet another tank not having a clue what they are doing and making the run far more tedious than it needs to be for no reason other than "oh look at me, I can do big pulls like a big boy. Me me big boy."

Sorry to hear you had a bad tank TC, my experience with low level content recently hasn't been nearly as bad, I've just been seeing the obligatory newbie tank that hasn't grasped how tanking works and refuses any and all advice given, no matter how much of a nice way it is given.

Should have mentioned tank was DRK. I mean even if it was a WAR was it really a DPS gain? We had NO aoe at all, except Unleash. I'd think DRG + NIN + DRK + WHM single targeting stuff would be quicker. Not the first time seeing this, even with "better" compositions
