I'm far more interested in offering my experience with /NIN, than I am arguing that it's better/worse than /SCH. I've had a much better experience with /NIN overall, and I just wanna offer perspective and some of its advantages. /SCH is fine too, it's just about adapting and using what you have ^^
But, since the forum is slow/dead (so is the game?)
, I might as well take a stab at some of these:
I've never, ever used celerity in campaign. It's not needed.
I agree that you and I
don't need it... ;) (disagree)
...but some WHMs will lack the skill/gear to guarantee landing stuff (even raised to B+ from /SCH)
, especially since you most likely won't swap staves in. Normal mobs may not be too bad, but NM's are a little different...
Some may have uncapped Divine, which can also cause interruptions when you have multiple mobs on you, and you're trying to Repose one. Celerity can be very helpful for someone with limited gear, with low skills, in heavy lag, or who is bad/inexperienced/unlucky at timing ^^
losing subli isn't that big of a deal
I think it's a pretty significant source of MP ... and yes, Body Boost won't always be available :/
don't think /SCH adds nothing DD-wise.
The bonus to Enlight is really very minimal, should only be 1 point higher(usually 16 -> 17)
Also, I would strongly
recommend using Solace instead, in my eyes the cureskin is worth much more than Enlight's damage.
You get Aspir [...]
You get a (Limited) Dispel [...]
Yay aspir/dispel! Yay agreement! :D
In the case of death/wipe, /SCH is still just as good at getting people up as it is in other scenarios
I don't know about others, but personally I don't raise much in campaign ... it doesn't give much exp.
I will raise others when I'm free, or definitely
after a battle -- just not very high on my list (campaign is my vacation, I'm here to be slightly selfish for once in my WHM career)
/SCH always pulled ahead in points by more than double what I could do on /NIN
I don't know what to tell you ... maybe just need more practice on /NIN?
Before Gully/KC, I used Martial/Perdu
and routinely capped my exp (you can usually tell by the ratio, or by comparing with others who tagged in around the same time, adjusting slightly by rank)
. The bottom line though is that you and I don't matter, except to say: /SCH and /NIN can definitely both max out EXP in campaign, without needing perfect gear ^^
Well that was fun ... regardless of which sub you choose, try to use variety and optimize the tools available to you. Hopefully our posts above will help /NINs get the best out of /NIN
, and /SCHs get the best out of /SCH
. :) *EDIT: I should probably mention, I absolutely LOVE <3 <3 <3 using /SCH for just about every other situation. Lots and lots. I scream and cry and break things when I see /BLM or /SMN when it's not specifically needed (for warp or carby).
I'm very experienced with it, very much a fan of it, a devout /SCH fanatic, love it to pieces.
Just not for campaign. O:) Edited, Dec 8th 2009 3:45pm by RyaWHM
