I've had SMN at 37 for the longest time and have been waiting till i get my last 3 HQ staves b4 i even bother going beyond 37.
My question is, what gear is useful for leveling (lol im sure there is a link in the compilation threads, if someone can toss me a few or point my in the right direction that would be helpful)
by what gear i think im mostly looking at
AF vs austere/Penance vs Relic
with some exceptions
YYR and Evoker's Ring
that being said how much of each set is useful and what is just junk that isnt worth the effort.
example is SMN magic skill useful for anything other than Elemental Siphon?
usually when i invite a SMN into a PT (on the off chance one is seeking) its as a Buffer for the PT, the way i see it the SMN can usually throw our Buffs and debuff the mob much in the same way a BRD or COR does.
Some smns seem to take more of a DD approach throwing out PC or Ecplipse Bite every minute. not that Rage is good for much else other than DD?
So what do you guys suggest? Do i turn your stomaches in disgust at my lack of understanding of your job? or Am i just a misguided soul that knows not what he speaks of but is willing to learn? or the 3rd option, am i somewhat right?
