The Myrmidon will get a revamp in the next update with a reorganised talent tree, a few new skills and some skill changes. I will be looking at other classes one at a time, with the next one probably being the Crusader.

Myrmidon Stances (Tiger Stance, Dragon Stance and Phoenix Stance) now affect nearby allies (party members) making them far more desirable in dungeons and other team based content.

Skills are no longer tied to stances and can be used at any time meaning the Myrmidon can now use the Dragon skills whilst in Tiger Stance with increased Physical Attack and have a much smoother rotation without so many Auto-Attacks whilst waiting for cooldowns. It also means they can use the Phoenix (magic) skills without switching stance, doing lower damage without Phoenix Stance active of course, but still able to make use of their buffs and debuffs.

The single-target Physical damage output of this class should be quite considerable now that Shatter can be used in Tiger Stance and all of the Physical skills can be used without any stance switching.

A couple of new skills were added and the skill tree reorganised as the Myrmidon had only 20 skills and far less 1st/2nd job skill prerequisites for obtaining the 3rd job skills compared to most other classes. The skill level requirements were also updated in line with the new level cap of 100 (this will be done for all classes).

Several 1st/2nd job skills and passives that granted Physical Crit or Hit have been changed to grant All Crit or All Hit to make them useful to the magic based attacks of the Myrmidon, and the additional Magic Crit obtained from the Phoenix's Fervor buff has been removed.
