From reading the jp wiki on Auspice, it seems like the whm him/herself is the only one who gets the enlight + acc bonus benefit.

source here:
Quote:
ハートオブミゼリ中に使えば、パーティメンバーもエンライトや命中ボーナスが得られるかのような表記になっているが、実際に上記効果を得られるのは、『ハートオブミゼリ中である白魔道士のみ』である*1。

Loosely translates to "When used with Afflatus Misery, the blurb above(It's talking about the effect and the dmg on enlight effect and how you should confirm with your fellow pld/drk before using) implies that the whole party will gain the effect of enlight + acc bonus, but in actual fact only the white mage with Afflatus Misery active will gain these bonuses."

So if this is true then only the whm gains those effect if and only if he/she keep Afflatus Misery up(?).

Probably pretty easy to find out... if anyone cares enough XD


Spira, much appreciated I couldn't find the original text, unfortunately this is after I spent 2 hours testing.

Now that I'm starting to get some decent gear (forged relic, etc) I'm going to have to start using Gearswap it looks like, I've been putting it off for shear lazyness.

Will gearswap handle moving stuff around in your inventory for you as well? or do you need to have it all in inventory/Wardrobe?

You can make another addon do it for using /put and /get commands but its painful and slow. ie one thing at a time not 50 so I would personally stick to inventory / wardrobe.
gotcha, there a current one for changing stuff when changing jobs?

In case it wasn't clear, it mentions checking with your PLDs and DRKs before hand because auspice overwrites enlight and endark. Which is really freaking annoying. And rather silly.

So the PLD's and DRKs have to recast every time the WHM uses auspice. -.-

Only the whm gets the enlight but Spaghett code screws PLD and drk up. Long story short - auspice is terrible.

Lurid: INT+19 MND+33 Magic Accuracy+23 Enfeebling magic skill +18

Piety+1:INT+19 MND+33 Divine magic skill +22 Enfeebling magic skill +22

Same int/mind, so shelve that. Then 23 Macc AND 18 enfeebling skill, vs just 22 enfeebling. Lurid is leagues ahead.

Read the gear and its actual stats and then read Piety, it's clearly not even remotely close. Magic Accuracy is just as good as skill, there is no difference in the end calculation to your targets resist chance.

Conagh thank you for taking you time and making a guide like this.

I have a question.

I am using your GS file and my precast set works fine but when i cast any of the cure spells the Cure precast set does not seem to work. I do //gs showswaps and it only show my regular precast gear and not the cure precast set (heka, Pahtli, ect)

Please help!

Ah, I think I forgot to add else rules into precast... my mistake edited a few days for the Aga rule, mainly cos too lazy to make a curaga 3 macro...

Heres the code for you to copy paste.

Conagh thank you for taking you time and making a guide like this.

I have a question.

I am using your GS file and my precast set works fine but when i cast any of the cure spells the Cure precast set does not seem to work. I do //gs showswaps and it only show my regular precast gear and not the cure precast set (heka, Pahtli, ect)

Please help!

Really??

Let me have a quick look its for a mule so.....

Ah, I think I forgot to add else rules into precast... my mistake edited a few days for the Aga rule, mainly cos too lazy to make a curaga 3 macro...

I'll amend it now on Github...

Heres the code for you to copy paste.

Aren't piety Hands +1 better for enfeebling than Lurid?

Read the gear and its actual stats and then read Piety, it's clearly not even remotely close. Magic Accuracy is just as good as skill, there is no difference in the end calculation to your targets resist chance.

Above 300 skill, 1 skill is .9 macc, so macc is better than skill point for point.

Probably because it's not really needed. There's plenty of room to hit 500 skill without it. Although, as a piece with a large skill value on it, it is a potential inv saver.

I only even carry mine if I'm not /sch. Can hit 500 skill without it, and I have alternate uses for most of my other enhancing pieces.

Like, colossus torque doubles as a healing skill+ piece. Dynasty mitts have duration+. Orison feet have a higher skill value and auspice enhancement. And piety legs+1 have their specific barspell+ in addition to enhancing.

There just doesn't seem to be much need for Umuthi cap. <,< Well, unless you want SS casting time-, but I'm already capping casttime- on that too, irrc.

Undefinitive testing disproven here ~
http://kanican.livejournal.com/34049.html
http://robonosto.blogspot.co.uk/2008/12/on-magic-resist-rates.html

Have a read its 1 skill ~ 1 enfeeble proven wrong years ago as 0.9


And this "300" skill soft cap was determined at 75 cap vs 75 contant so its relevance at 119~125 content is questionable even if it was correct at time of testing. you could then assume that their basic "skill requirement" to get you on the same level was lower (exact math unknown however the Calculations are only truly known to SE) this could be interpreted as an Alpha value previously in WSC. so

(skill -300)x0.9 + Magic Acc skill(this includes dINT) +300 = total Magic Hit Rate where 300 is the soft cap and level correction applies then.

Could have been the old "assumption" however it was proven there was no "alpha" value in Magic enfeebling data.

Unless there is a more up to date testing than this.. I will stick with this empirical data.

I've added it because I have Nabu's in that slot however they really are not needed to cap enhancing skill, however arguably easier to get than some pieces.

I personally always use Dynasty Mitts mainly due to the enhancing time + on them and those allowing you to hit 500 skill as whm/sch so I never use Nabu or Umuthi for anything

A few of those pieces aren't needed to reach 500 with light arts if you have merits and are capped, it's still a good idea to have the highest available piece for each slot so people can mix and match with pieces they might or might not have. (Or if for whatever reason people aren't /sch or are part of the /rdm fanclub). It's also less of a pain in the butt to get than Nabu's if you have a group capable of doing Yorcia delve.

Agreed it's just not a piece you "need" to get 500 skill and not much of an inventory saver ....

Want to stress the point I'm not perfect I will occasionally miss a better piece so feel to ask!

Also, think might be worth adding a little blurb about macros? Still run into a lot of people who don't seem to know about <stpt> or <stal>. It's pretty handy knowledge for a mage, especially if you don't use blinkmenot.

I'd like to add to the Under Utilized item's Cura III is also a great spell I like to use when in close quarters good for conserving MP at a cost of 60mp vs. 180mp on a curaga III cast:

Notes:
■ Casting Cura while Afflatus Misery is activated grants a potency bonus to the spell based on the most recent damage you sustain.

■ The bonus from Afflatus Misery resets upon cast.

■ Appears to soft cap at 175 HP with a sufficient bonus value from Afflatus Misery.

■ This spell is affected by "Cure" related equipment (e.g. Light Staff, Cure Clogs)

would possibly be good to add to the healing group in GS could be beneficial. In my rotation of cures I like to use a large repertoire.

Very impressed with your guide thus far thank you for your contribution.

most of this is already in the guide, minus the soft cap and the fact potency gear affects it, I guess I overlooked adding that part.

I'll also note that Cura is worked out on the same Calculations as Curaga is and buloet point it

Quote:
Cura: Why would I ever use this....

This healing spell is the black sheep of the cure family. This spell is centred around the caster and hits all party members who are within 10 Yalms of the caster. Because of the nature of the spell, it can be potentially very dangerous to use, and at the same time, can also be one of the best spells possible to use in very select instances. Cura’s hard cap is very low but also has a very low MP cost as well. What makes Cura interesting is that it is enhanced by Afflatus Misery, namely by how much damage the White Mage has taken in their last hit of damage. It does not take very much damage to cap out the “Misery” potency of this spell - my own observations being that Cura III seems to cap out when the White Mage has taken around 250 damage.

You can use Potency received items on this as it hits the WHM as well and its easily the lowest MP cost Cure spells a WHM has, although its not very strong and why would you ever be close to the mob?? (Useful for Melee WHM sets but we will touch on those later)

Taking this from the last guide:

In terms of the gearswap, because cura is worked out like Curaga and I used tables it's incredibly easy to add it:
Code
Cures 									= S{'Cure','Cure II','Cure III','Cure IV','Cure V','Cure VI'}
Curagas 								= S{'Curaga','Curaga II','Curaga III','Curaga IV','Curaga V','Cura','Cura II','Cura III'}
Lyna									= S{'Paralyna','Silena','Viruna','Erase','Cursna','Stona','Blindna','Poisona'}
Barspells								= S{'Barfira','Barfire','Barwater','Barwatera','Barstone','Barstonra','Baraero','Baraera','Barblizzara','Barblizzard','Barthunder','Barthundra'}
Turtle									= S{'Protectra V','Shellra V'}
Cursna									= S{'Cursna'}
Regens									= S{'Regen','Regen II','Regen III','Regen IV','Regen V'}
Enhanced								= S{'Flurry','Haste','Refresh'}
Banished								= S{'Banish','Banish II','Banish III','Banishga','Banishga II'}
Smite									= S{'Holy','Holy II'}
Reposed									= S{'Repose','Flash'}
Potency									= S{'Slow','Paralyze'}
Defense									= S{'Stoneskin'}


Literally just add it in the Curagas as above and it would do it for you ~

Added these tables as it was more concise and if SE adds say Holy III it's 1 amendment and then it works in your sets, sorta like plug in and go!

Thanks, pretty much everything up until Melee stuff is done, melee sets are going to take a bit of thought (started with some TP sets which I posted as an idea for people but really gotta get a feel for what people actually intend to solo on WHM).

I've added Motes Geraswap.

Added mine and pushed an update for it to include:

Auto Curaga 3 rule (changes cure 3 to Aga 3 good fir Dual boxing)
Auto Sublimation depending on your MP with a Chat Alert after every spell to keep you appraised of your mp (easy to just glance and miss your mp).
Rules to stop JA running if in Midaction ie a Fast Cure/spell situation.
Rules to stop JA (mainly for sublimation) to try and be used if timers are down.
Added Melee rules and tested Gearswap is fully functional.

Added an AshitaCast for those users on Ashita 2
