    Need for DPS - which job is the most damaging?

    Which job do you think is able to do most damage in long/short time? My call for speedy damage dealing is a Blue Mage with Azure Lore up and skillchaining with:

    Vertical Cleave -> Tourbillion -> Quadratic Continuum -> Goblin Rush -> Amorphic Spikes -> Quadrastrike

    (combo by Prothescar of BG)

    For short time with 2hr count BLU, SAM、SCH i'm not sure with Sam power now how far it's can go, but blu i'm not wonder a bit, since after use blu will die =D, Even i not play Sch but form some Vid on Sch's 2hr so far i'm sure can't deny it's power.
    For Long time not 2hr or so i guess no job can beat war with Emp now. and for very well prepare WAR with 2hr can also be very powerful short time DD.
    All just IMO, (´_ゝ`)

    I don't see any mage jobs getting close to heavy DDs. How do you figure SCH is in there? Is Kaustra that much better than any other nuke they have? I didn't play around with it much, but from what I've seen it's by no means spectacular.

    Anyways, it'll always depend on the mob too, and whether "pure damage" works in the first place (as in, if survival is an issue). WAR, SAM and DRG should all be up there with the best DDs, not sure how MNK compares these days.

    This thread has great flame potential. I can see it going places.

    .
    I also never think it's that powerful until i see it's can kill Melo Melo in one shot (Yes with DoT) even Melo Melo have very powerful regen when in shell also can't beat it's DoT. BTW as you say it's just up to mob i'm totally agree, also it's up to condition of setup you do on each job also. such as subjob, time to prepare, item use, ect.
    Which i choose Blu, Sch, Sam sicne this 3 can just go in and start 2 hr to do that dmg with no need any TP storage or can just use it's ja to get it. and it's very potent in short time. =D BTW again as i say it's just IMO

    On the right time on the right situation and right condition, RDM with Chainspell also can be one most powerful DD also.

    DD Tanks -
    Monk and War , War out dmgs all * with ukko* save for a mythic drg. Monks DPS is nigh impossible to top even with our aftermath gimped on VS.

    Straight DD
    Mythic Drg
    Empy War * mythic sam with a 99 wep*
    Empy Monk * with hate* , Sam * with empy and great gear*
    Nin * kannagi* and assuming proper gear
    Nin / monk
    Drg * with drakes*
    Blu / Dnc * both empy* , extremely well geared O chain + w/e sword pld on any fast hitting mob/mobs
    Etc...

    on any mob that can be countered Monk and War will be king as long as they have hate , monk more so just cuz its less likely to instantly die.

    That's a pretty one-sided list there. You don't even mention DRK. Now granted DRK isn't as high up on the chain as it used to be, but a good DRK should be able to keep up a respectable pace just fine. I use LVL. 90 Redemption and I feel I carry my weight just fine. My WS's only average about 2-3K with spikes of upwards to 4k in VW, but I make up for it in DoT.

    ODD with Scythe is really nice. I break 1k-1300/1400 crits a lot, upwards to 1600/1700 depending on buffs. Give me haste and double march and those ODD's add up really nicely.

    EDIT: My signature is a lucky double ODD proc on Qilin, Redemption Aftermath + AF+2 DRK set bonus proccing,
