It's been such a long time since I last played the class, plus I think they did a lot of AI changes. So now I'm trying to remember what the heck I'm doing and there's a few questions that stand out.

1) In regards to frame and head combinations, I've been doing some poking around and it seems like there could be some use for using some non-traditional combinations – on paper, anyway. Namely, I've been looking into how I could do a better job of forcing my automaton to cast certain enfeebles under Stormwaker, but he just nukes. I suppose that is one of the uses of Harlequin, at least early on, right? Right now, I'm fighting things that are fairly easy to kill and the enfeebs would help more than the nukes, like Paralyze and Blind especially.

Additionally, it also seems like doing a Valoredge + Stormwaker or Valoredge + Harlequin combination would force the automaton into a full curebot mode, right? Casts would be somewhat slower but if I needed to do some skillups with Guard or something like that, I could run VE/H and not worry that my automaton would cast anything but cures, correct?

----

2) Spell priorities have DEFINITELY changed since I played last. I have a good handle on most of it, though I'm still having trouble getting Stormwaker to reliably cast Paralyze, which is the one I really want him to cast. Any suggestions?

----

3) Are there any other major adjustments to PUP or the Automaton since, oh, 2008, I guess?

IF you have Soulsoother head, then using an Ice Maneuver will trigger Paralyze. But if you want nuking capability with paralyze being first...have to work on that.

Double ice maneuver with Stormwaker head will make it Paralyze when the mob < 75% hp
