Best Dancer Rotation In FFXIV: Openers, Abilities, & More

Each job in FFXIV has tons of abilities. Some of which can be activated repeatedly, whilst other abilities have a GCD (global cooldown). Players wanting to optimize their damage, tanking, or healing must ensure they are performing the right rotation of abilities. This ensures that your buffs remain active for as long as possible, and there is no downtime in dishing out DPS. 

Dancer is a Physical ranged DPS class that foregoes the typical huge numbers associated with other DPS Jobs in favor of providing sizeable damage buffs to the entire party. 

So, if you are curious to learn more, you've come to the right place. This article will cover the best Dancer rotation in FFXIV.
