Here's what "I" think, doesn't mean they'll suit for everyone, just ideas...
But my question is what am i missing from not having /whm or /rdm lvled since i was asked to sub these a few times in the last 8 lvls...am i expected to backup heal as a cor?
For those who /whm at 30+ they either wants to use those -na spells or dumb like a rock. Oh wait.. I just insult the rock, they are dumber.
For the /rdm parts, it's more use for boosting QD dmg at end-game. Or cures for the party, but it's as good as your lolrdmsub MP goes.
If your party require assist on curing at 30+, /dnc is way better, unless those -na spells are require where /whm "could" be better. /dnc also gets better as you lv up.
EVERY other cor seeking 30-44 on my server is either whm or nin...why?
For /whm part, it's the same as above.
For those who /nin is because they don't have ranger as sub or want to duel wear archer's knifes + 3 shadows protection.
Last question is what cards do I need to have on me when i hit 40 other than light/dark...like which do the most dmg? or is it independent of what mob I am fighting? like if a mob is weak to ice spam ice cards?
I suggest you to have ice, wind, earth, light, dark, at minium, our QD at low lv party has it's uses as boosting the enfeeble, ice = paralyze, wind = gravity and silence, earth = slow, light = sleep, dark = dispel. As you lv up, party stops enfeeble the mob, and it's where you start using QD as dmg output.
Just a side question... what kind of mob you are fighting that can 3 hits you?
(which is fun but i dont wanna gt hit since most mobs can 3-hit me)
