You get more raw healing from using potency head over duration head, yeah? Is this just a case of preference or is my math wrong? Assuming it’s preference, I guess it just comes down to wasted health from ticks and just wanting to recast it less?

Just make a toggle potency/duration. I tend to favor duration just to preserve books, ie: burning reisen/escha NMs you generally burn through stuff faster the more SCs you do, instead of switching over to (1)LA (2)perp (3)acces (4)DA burning up strats.

Elisabet's LUA has functions for potency, duration, or Hybrid. I use that set but with Bunghole and emo head and get about 10 minutes with perpetuance and around 80/85 a tick. If you've got Musa, it would be your call. I personally would rather have an OP tick for 10 minutes+ rather than dropping that 15% potency for 10% duration.

Thanks Toralin, I remember making my sets from yours a while back. Any chance you could post all your sets again? :) Or do you keep them updated on your profile for people to check? Cheers.

Is it just the barspells that benefit from hitting 500 enhancing skill? Everything else Sch can cast should be capped much lower than that, right?

Also Phalanx, enspells, and Embrava benefit from 500 enhancing skill.

Does anyone have a Max Noctohelix / Kaustra set?
likely similar to this. with potential swap to raetic staff +1 and merlinic body.
ItemSet 325975
If you were casting any other helix would you just swap to something like the Merlinic hood?

Yeah, I have a Merlinic hood, and a Shiva Ring +1 (for the Archon Ring) for the swaps to do normal Helix

AF2+3 (or relic +3) head has MBD II +4 with MAB and macc as well, might beat merlinic for some.

Has anyone tested Maxentius+Ammurapi vs Akademos+Enki for Burst / Helixes? (assuming you can benefit from the "based on skillchain length" part)

What about Maxentius+Ammurapi vs Musa+Khonsu for enfeebles?

I did this weekend to test how much Magic Burst Damage you get from the club for a 2-step (which appears to be 5) and Max is stronger without complimentary weather, Akademos otherwise. It was pretty close though.

Last time I tested helix the raetic+1 would always beat akademos but it was by 1% (100-300 dmgish)

Is Tupsimati worth getting? Was thinking of making another mythic, but not sure whether it be Tupsimati or Death Penalty.

between those two? DP
DP is OP.
Tupsimati is a show piece for a career SCH.
Aside from a couple high m.acc sets, I don't know if it's BiS for anything anymore.

I don't think it is for anything atm. Su5 staff has more *practical* macc, and bis for enhancing duration and regen. Akademos is still a beast of a staff considered how extremely avaible it is. Add a chatoyant for cure with weather and between those 3, you'd be hard pressed to find a need for a weapon not already covered.

Why not Telchine body? Is that because the base regen duration on body (not augment) is +12 seconds as opposed to +12%?

Correct, I mean telchine body with +10 enh duration is going to be in your inventory anyway, if your any type of half *** mage. I mean you use that on every enhancing spell you would cast. If you want to push SCH regen duration to the max, then youll need the relic+3 body

I guess it's a matter of personal preference between potency versus duration, but I was thinking maybe using +3 regen Telchine body. Do you use duration on all your regen Telchine pieces?

regen duration:
What's the order of operations? are arts, gifts and/or gear listed as duration +x seconds before or after gear with %s?

(60+arts+job points+gear#)*gear%*augment%*perpetuance=total duration
(60+48+60+15)*1.32*1.3*2.55=800.7714
(60+48+60+27)*1.20*1.4*2.55=835.38
vs.
(60+arts+job points)*gear%*augment%*perpetuance+gear#=total duration
(60+48+60)*1.32*1.3*2.55+15=750.1344
(60+48+60)*1.20*1.4*2.55+27=746.712

although if it's me, I'd probably swap back & head for the potency.

You're in the SCH section of FFXIAH. Welcome, we're SCH, we drink and we know things. Well, we mostly drink, and reminisce over the olden days of Modus Veritas. But if you're here now, you're late. The SCH train train left long ago, so it's likely that you ain't bandwagoning. Therefore I must assume you wanna join the erudite elite.

So take your inventory hit, and make your damn toggle. D:

Remove the cap on Embrava, make it JA haste & regain again & add mDMG to kaustra's dmg formula.
Make Enlightenment like Unbridled Learning.
IE: unlocks Embrava and Kaustra as well.
