Scholar @ 75 is a job with a lot of potential but several things hinder this job from reaching its full power.
First of all most of our defining job abilities are based solely off of our support job.
Tp burn pty suggestion
grants sch Erasena, Poisona, Silenaga, Blindnaga, Stoneskinga Blinkga Aquaveilga and access to Divine seal which allows a sch/whm access to the most powerful curing in the game outside of whm main.Regenga and Regenga II we get natively.
Mana burn pty suggestion
gives an int bonus and Mab II trait along with all the elemental enfeebling spells. The only other real bonus here is Elemental seal and Bindga. Aspirga and Drainga we get natively.
MY Overall sub of choice
/RDM gives a Sch an int bonus Mab I trait and Fastcast bonuses. Also you get
Phalanxga, Stoneskinga, Blinkga, Aquaveilga, Bindga, Gravityga and all Enspellgas.
Im sure im forgetting some but these are the main aspects of each subjob.
Now for the jobs specific abilities
The Storm spells are nice but need a lot of improvement the most noticable thing is that they bump the % of damage slightly and help with resists and Helix spells.
Helix spells.... Sigh.
the Helix spells are not tierd as far as i can tell the only difference is in cryohelix because of the int bonus from nq/hq staff and elemental day bonuses.
My biggest complaint with the helix spells is the Long count between ticks. If they had the same tick rate as other dot spells they would be very powerful. In most exp pty fights a helix will only get 1 or two ticks depending on the pty so if your luminohelix lands on an imp for 150 and you use modus veritas to amplify it the mob will usually be dead before the second tick actually happens.
giving you a grand total of 150 damage. that is definitly not good.
In my opinion Se should re evaluate the initial damage of helix spells.
Hopefully our AF will give us a nice int boost and at least 10-15 in most magic skills . Se Said themselves that they intend to actually make sch more powerful and interesting to play. Lets all hope they do.
I believe this job has a ton of potential its not bad its not weak its just very very New.
