Does anyone know the duration of Helx spells? Also, how do they perform on stuff like Sky/Sea Gods and up?

My ls low mans a lot of stuff and I was wondering if a SCH/BLM ES+Helix rotation would be good.

As it says in my sig, I'm not quite at that level yet, but I believe it's been mentioned that the Helix spells last around 5-6 ticks of damage, at 9 seconds per tick, that's around a 1 minute duration, and of course Modus Veritas cuts it in half.

Against Gods and stuff I believe that the helix damage gets severely resisted, to the point of getting "zeroed out" against something like Kirin.

If someone who's actually tested these could confirm or correct me, that'd be great.

Total damage dealt = Initial Damage x7

With weather, it makes it last longer, so maybe x8 or x9.
