I'm only level 39 RUN but thus far I've felt like the job is a very poor tank. I feel more like some kind of burst damage dealer.

So was wondering if anyone has tried just being a DD RUN? Like RUN/DRK or something? Use last resort for the haste and lunges for damage and just save your wards for AoE spells?

I mean RUN could turn out to be an awesome DD that can just cover itself from magic damage. Like how NIN was supposed to be a ranged DD but ended up being a tank.
