    Not defending the dagger itself, but that point is moot. It's not an equal drawback, it's a very, very minor, hardly ever noticeable drawback.

If mob doesn't do something like that, haste samba of course.
    I switched from 5/5 Saber to 5/5 Fan at 95. I like it.

    Saber/Haste Samba will help you kill something faster, but Fan will give you wiggle room and allow you to kill things you wouldn't have been able to otherwise. Fulltime Saber/Haste Samba's great, but there's nothing I could do with that setup (including self-healing, hilariously) that a NIN/DNC with Kannagi couldn't do much better.

    As a side-note, 5/5 Fan Dance DNC/MNK with counterstance up is pretty hilarious.

    I couldnt help to comment... DNC is a great Tank !! seriously if you think otherwise you should reconsider some other game to try!! SE made it clear that DNC as a job will be one of the best soloing Jobs in FFXI and they way this Job is designed highly support that! with full meretied Fan Dance a DNC can take most of the fight without the need to even Waltz!
    and when you support it with the right gear.. your practically GOD!!.. new updates now support that the amount of AGI that you stack will effect greatly the amount of Damage you will take from enemy .. specially from TP moves and lets not forget how DEX affects your over all damage ( critical hits rate ) plus the amount of Critical hits that you will likely to take from the Monster...
    using AGI + and DEX+ gear can improve your performance greatly in soloing or tanking ( hit more and harder with DEX+ ==> ending up to be the tank in the party / add more AGI and you got your self a stack of EVA and survive-ability from TP moves) simple ... isnt it.. no wonder DNC is meant for soloing activities -.-

    regarding Abyssea .. sure THF NIN would do much in terms of Drops ... but im ok with the idea of DNC procing Yellow and Red every once and while .. Plus its much more fun to solo on DNC anyway !! * better animation*
