This is my rating on them.
fighter-very easy(suplex intercepts oponents attacks and has an aoe splash,and fast)
preist-easy(nice aoe, and can intercept attacks)
gunner-normal(I never tried it out yet but I heard it has some bad cooldowns)
mage-hard(hard if you get your self in a suicidal sistuation)
slayer-very hard(melee,slow every thing, and we can't intercept attacks most of the time)
I've only played two classes really but I agree with you. My slayer-- before he hit 15 was just awful. They definitely are the worst class until they get a subclass.
Now if we're talking about after subclass, I hate summoners. I refuse to group with them anymore because no matter who is in the party or whatever, if a summoner is in the party, we lose. They are just that bad but maaaainly I think it's because all summoners just happen to be shitty players because I can see the class itself being moderately useful but I have yet to see a single one do anything but make the stage 5x harder.
