Closest we will probably get to rdm is a weaker blm with healing support. only way rdm could be in game. Just because Eos/Selene heal better than you, Jeremy? Don't be bitter, get better. & FFXIV Gil; Yeah, right, all development will stop NOW just to make RDM on XIV. Why not stay on XI, then? Go play your "samuri" job.
BLU would really make for a nice balance if they can make it work balanced dps/heals physical/magical spell potency cheap FFXIV Gil. MagicFruit for 5k plzzz. Remember redmage would be the best enfeebler in mobs and enhancer for crew I say and best solo job shouldn't be meant for over power dps or healers ya looking at it all wrong. I really do hope they expand the job system down the road. I like XIV, but in terms of job complexity (and story/lore/presentation) FFXI still has it beat despite having a far more shallow combat system.
It's a shame that the armory system ended up being as restrictive as it is compared to XI's job + subjob setup (and having multiple weapon types per class). Would love to see skillchains make a comeback as well.
