I have both at 99, with a lot more time played on DNC but not really in the current meta/endgame. I'm trying to figure out what Thf gains to offset all the useful JAs that DNC has going for it... TP manipulation, WS/SC boosts, better mainjobbed heals, two good 1 hr abilities, etc. To me a lot of THF's JAs seem very situational, weak, or outright useless.

Am I giving up utility for 11% base (un-gifted) triple attack and TH pretty much? TA seems easy to use with trusts, but SA is tough to use because you're usually holding aggro. What am I missing in the appeal?

I like dnc more, dmg output is higher too assuming both job geared very well.

When solo, DNC has more going for it in terms of survival and damage output. THF is a stronger choice in party play (assuming there is coordination), otherwise it's really about the TH.
