if you arent first, youre last!
There's always gonna be "better" classes/jobs, but all the top DPS atm are very similar atm other than maybe one melee class(Dragoon). Utility is a huge factor as well, some groups will take certain classes with them on raids because of certain abilities that boost others' dps or helps support the team. I would try out the game first, it's much more different than WoW.
