We're planning to do Fu (we tried it once before) after we finish Kin. Kin's being an extreme PITA atm, with our closest attempt being 5% with 6 minutes left. Wish we could try more attempts but scheduling isn't easy for us. After Kin and Fu, we're planning on doing Kyou, then Gin. Doing these fights definitely brought back my love for SCH though! They made me fix my gear sets and lua functions that were outdated.

Hello scholars! Would you use Raetic Staff +1 for nonmb nuking? if not, which is the best nonmb nuking staff I could use? thanks!

Depends if you need to keep mp up with occult acumen tp. If you're swapping on each cast well, yeah probably best to use it, but it's likely a minute gain over a solid grio or an ambu wep + Ammu shield or ambu staff and enki grip. Whichever is not breaking your budget or inv space, is what I'd prioritise for that.

Emp feet wins on MB. On free nuking I dunno. On MBing a helix Amalric +1 beats emp feet for me atm. Since mb helix is in the ball park of free nuking, I would think Amalric would also be best on free nukes.

You're looking at a drop of 50ish MAB (60~70ish depending on your other pieces), so that's not surprising. (plus 10 Mdmg, but that's so minor)

So long as SE doesn't go full stupid and gives them 0 MAB (though my money is on them getting a MBB term too), then it won't be until the +2/3 that they win in all situations.

Edit: Nvm, guess it doesn't even matter if I'm capping FC without those slots to begin with.

here's a light weather set,
ItemSet 338349
cure power I think is either at 700 or really close with path A on everything but either body or feet. one of which is path D for the cure potency.

From what I see of Toralin's set, your focus is conserve MP after cure power/potency. Mine was enmity.

In both set I am missing the obvious Regal earring and +2 jse neck.

ItemSet 367704
That one is mb ACC it's only 36% MB dmg 1, but I find the macc and set bonus man from 2pc Amalric +1 was doing me better than a Merlinic body. I chose the Merl pants cause it's an acc set and amalric pants lack in macc. The Amalric is all path A, except gloves on path D.

ItemSet 367703
This one is the normal mb set.

Thinking of coming back to SCH in XI after a hiatus playing XIV. What's SCH's niche now? Are we still just a hybrid nuker/healer? When I left SCH was just used to Stun/Embrava/Regen for burning down Delve, Legion, ADL.

Elizabet's post is pretty much up to date from what I see. I just have a differing view on grip, 2nd ring & feet really.
this hasn't been added to ffxiah yet, but it is best in slot. swap a shiva ring for it.


There haven't been many changes to the sets. I personally think arbatel loafers +1 just doesn't cut it anymore mostly thanks to the loss of magic accuracy in that slot. That really depends on what you're doing and how many buffs the scholar is actually getting.

Unless I’m missing something, there is no benefit to even a max augment Merlinic Hood over a Pedagogy Motorboard. Swapping out legs or body for Merlinic and adding Static Earring + Locus Ring instead will net higher MB numbers.

They're the most likely candidate for the MBB term out of that set, since it won't be head or body.
Also: You're 3 short for cap... but that's an easy replacement: Merlinic feet w/+10 aug.
And like you said, the only improvement I can think of would be the new Odin ring.

There is no varying potency, so no, skill does not matter.

The reason why I asked this question is because for years now, I have been using weather spells like other enhancing spells which require skill. No idea why, I just never questioned it.

Also, I tend to forget to switch to my Idle or Sublimation Idle sets when I'm waiting on strategems, so I got in to the habit of waiting around in my Fast Cast(for the next Immanence). I do not use gearswap at all, so everything I do is with the standard macros.

With Scholar getting 25% FC naturally, I changed my Fast Cast set to include about 60% (super rare I am ever not /rdm) FC, along with other slots being filled up with idle pieces with refresh preferred.

This is why I asked the question, as I wanted to change my Weather set to something similar. So in the slots without enhancing duration, I've managed to find decent amounts of Conserve MP along with Idle pieces. This means I will naturally heal HP/MP more with my forgettable, manual play style.

Um.... That's not how it works. Like at all.

Assuming you are counting Arts for that 25%.

Arts isn't additive with FC. They're multiplicative. So you'll still need 78% FC (63% with /RDM) in order to hit that -80% casting time cap.
Assuming you're not using the Artifact feet or the Relic head in your FC set. And even with both of those at 119+3, you'll still need 69% FC.

"Casting Time Down" and FC are additive, Arts is multiplicative with that.
"Recast Time Down", FC/2, and Haste are additive, and again Arts is multiplicative.

You should just make a dedicated FC set (aka a Stun set), and use that /equipset before going into your w/e relevant spell cast set; and then a pure refresh idle set.

Did not give the exact value before as it was late, but correction, I got 68% FC if including AF+3 feet. Should be enough, unless /blm. There's so many choices for FC these days, and like I said, I do not play Scholar (or other backline mage) every day or week. Have idle sets for all the jobs I play, just don't always remember to use them.

Since I'm vanilla too, I like to have each arts on their own page in the book with the lines:
/equipset refresh
/ja addendum
/ja arts
/macro book #
/macro page #

(I like CTRL+ATL 0, but that's just me.)

That way I just hit the arts button whenever I have a second to not be doing something so I'm always in my refresh set.
