    Need what you think about..

    I m proud to be a Ninja , really enjoying the job and all.
    I think i m a good nin too from what people i have PT with says.
    But i have a problem:
    - As a taru, even if i am a good player, can i find a place in a HNM LS ?
    I really want to enjoy those big fights ^^
    Please post your thought about it ^^

    NIN isn't one of the most useful jobs in the big big fights (Kirin, King Behemoth, Fafnir/Nidhogg, Tiamat, etc.) so don't expect much from those.

    but outside of the big big fights NINs are great, they make lesser fights that would require 12+ people with a PLD tank doable with less than 6.

    the problem is while an LS may need 5-6 or even more PLDs for the big fights, it usually would need only 2-3 NINs for everything else.

    race doesn't matter.

    PLD amounts to more in the sum of all endgame, but NIN still has a somewhat large place. there are a couple big fights where NIN is better than PLD (but PLD can still do the job), and NIN is better for tanking gimp stuff like cassie and serket, and for soloing.

    level up any job except DRG and you can be somehow useful

    Thats rubbish.

    I've seen all those mobs being tanked by a ninja without any issues.

    i've seen them tanked with PLDs and no NINs. were these NINs main tanking without any PLDs?

    i wasn't talking about finding them a spot where they can be useful, i'm talking about telling the PLD not to join in the Alliance because the NIN will do a better job.

    i'm talking about one player who has 75 PLD and 75 NIN and asks "what job should i come as?" and the reply is "Come as NIN, we need you to ..."

    i'm drawing a blank for what "..." might be in those fights.

    are the ninjistu debuffs worth using on endgame mobs?

    Kirin & King B, yes. Dragons, was a team of pld & ninja.

    Ninja on Tiamat :

    Ninja on Jormagund :

    Ninjas can be used in ways that most people don't realise. Just.. requires creativity..

    A lot of people come here looking for advice, and there is some great stuff being given out. I just don't want ninjas to think that they're useless beyond camping the "lol-hnms" and such, when they can do so much more.

    Watching a ninja tank byaako is just cool ;x

    I felt the blink nerf on ninjas was unnecessary. It possibly would have been better if they just made that nerf apply to subjobs because I prefer a warrior/ninja post-74 over a ninja/warrior in xp pts. I’d say the only one out of the 4 gods that a ninja would have a chance of pulling off the whole battle would be Genbu. Suzaku seems too dangerous with triple attack, Seiryu’s breath and dispelga are probably too much for a ninja and byakko attacks far too fast. Even if a ninja could pull it off, you probably would have a lot of dead rangers and black mages.

    That being said, ninjas are good on Marlboros and Scorpions.

    As a nin you wont be getting hit much, but you have to avoid mobs with really strong WS's like spiders because you dont want to be one-shotted.
