I'm just glad WHM can perform quite well under weakness and double-weakness :P with enough MP pool and against non-AoE spammy mobs it's a great hate reset xD

I used my whm/sch for nyzul static and discovered that I pulled hate easy on boss floors. So, yes, I got a trooper's ring, and swap lolaf2 hat on top floor too. Tremendously reduced hate and everyone happier. I started with max mp set, then switch to mnd/haste set after mp gone, and on top floor, put in the two -enm pieces.

I used to cure in sky and I did not find I need -enm. So it's really situation by situation. I wont bother with it in merit party at all.

You're either Curagabombing (needless to say, body boosts and subsequent HP topping should be done prior to engaging the boss), have some really bad melee, or you're gradually pulling hate due to too much Cerb Hoplon or Hydra phys barrier spam (which is still not something I'd call "pulling hate easy")

If one of the things forcing you to Curagabomb is Fafnir and his wing spam, try standing next to the melee and making use of Misery+Cura. Very efficient cure and is also very light on the enmity. You can use one of these for every wing he does. (Obviously, leave Stoneskin down.) Also, if it isn't already up, make sure Shellra and a Briaulted/merited Baraera is on everyone. Depending on the rate of wing spam, you'll probably still need to Curaga, but not as heavily as you would without Cura.

Generally, with Cure 5, WHM should not be having enmity problems on Nyzul bosses compared to other healers who are much more likely to encounter such issues. Given the fact that your melees will (should) be using body boosts, it gives you mostly free reign to abuse Cure 5 without risking deaths.

Yeah I had to curaga when situation demanded. Those -enm helped, did not hurt my mp, so I am cool with it. Only two pieces anyway. I don't do Nyzul anymore, I use whm for salvage, but I very rarely pull hate in salvage so -enm is no consideration for what I currently do.

I got -5 enm waist from assault later on, but never find situation to use it. thinking maybe I should just toss it to save space.

Yeah, that's kinda the point. Changing those two pieces should not be making all that much of a difference. Playstyle changes would go a much longer way. (Note that this doesn't apply just to you; better melees would also mean that they establish hate more quickly)

I **** Cure 5 and Cura in Nyzul whenever I possibly can, and I almost never have enmity issues on WHM despite paying exactly zero attention toward having a dedicated -enmity set (Blessed is all the -enmity I have that is continuously worn), whereas I often would have such issues in the past when playing RDM instead.
