I'm asking from a subjob point of view, so I'm not sure if this belongs with SCH or WHM forum, but I was here.
I'm a 75WHM leveling SCH for a lovely new subjob, and I've been really excited about the assorted job abilities and also Aspir.
But it suddenly dawned on me: even if the cap for Dark Magic is raised to 256 as WHM main, will I be able to skill up Dark Magic as WHM/SCH to a point where using the Dark Magic is any more worthwhile than /BLM's? Or does /SCH Dark Arts make the magic type count as a "native" skill?
Wouldn't make much sense if you can't skill it up as /SCH, but then it wouldn't make sense if you could.. >_<;
I currently do not have any jobs higher than 37 with native dark magic skill, but it is capped for 37. It would really be dumb though if I can't get it to a worthwhile level without leveling BLM/RDM/DRK. :(
