The Pros & Cons of FFXIV Tank

Yep it is not the issue of not having enough Tank class but that Tank Role is generally less rewarding and satisfying when the cons of playing a tank role out ways the pros.

 

Pros

- Shorter DF waiting time

- less people trying to get the same gear in the group.

- Tank Job is higher in demand for groups.

 

Cons

- People expect a lot more from you

- If you die the group dies with you

- If something goes wrong then expect to be blamed

- Missing Tank mechanics is less forgiving than other roles

- Keeping up Aggro when teams are randomly hitting targets without keeping track on their own aggro

- Gear is expected to be up to date far more than other Jobs due to Defense and HP demand.

- people expect you to Speed Run dungeons or else you're considered a "Noob"

- Certain Tank players have caused a bad reputation among the Tank population for being "Too demanding" and "Impatient" as there are Tank players who would generally instantly leave a DF group if there is 1 new player thus the burden of proving to others you are not like those players.

- Demand for the Tank Player to already know mechanics a head of a DPS and Healer Job is higher as they must meet demand to stay alive more.

- People are less forgiving on New Player Tanks.

 

The introduction of more Tank Jobs will certainly not increase the tank population as much as people may believe as the increase in population is simply a short term result of people being interested in the Job itself and not the Role of the Job.

 

The Pros & Cons of FFXIV Tank

 

Once players have experience the Job itself then they experience the burdens of being a Tank Job which is where people make the choice if they will stay to play a Tank Role or move into DPS or Healer Job. 

 

Few people will accept the burden of a Tank Job but they also must not let it become a tool that they can use to threating DF groups they join just because they are a Tank Job as there still remain plenty of people who will abuse their Role as a Tank to threaten DF groups to meet their demands. However, DPS and Healers must also remember not to treat all Tanks as these "Improper Tanks" just because they are not meeting their expectations on what a Tank Player should be or what they would have done if they were a Tank Job

Returning FFXIV Player Confused

which class you wanna start with, depends if you want to FFXIV DPS, ffxiv tank or heal.I would recommend you to start with Gladiator if you want to tank, Thaumaturge for DPS or Conjurer for healer, as they are a bit easier than the other classes to handle in the beginning.
