I hit post by mistake. Still working on how to put all the gear together. Unfortunately I can only create 6 characters per account here so still working!!!!
I have taken a high interest in scholar and while looking around this forum I haven't seen anything about different gear sets.
So, I decided to look at all the gear that scholar can wear and put something together. In the following sets, I didn't take in consideration race and special events like gear that only works in campaign or has a latent effect that won't work in other expansions. Also, some of the pieces are hard to get or very expensive.
I hope this at least shows where the potential is. Also,on a side note, the ffxiclopedia site doesn't have the right base for mp/stats/hp so don't look at the total value.
This is MP Set.
As you can see the above set will give you at least 503 MP plus depending on the race or sub job you can bump that up. You can also add another 90 MP by eating one of the following food:
** Squirrel's Delight (90)
** Vermillion Jelly (90)
** Bijou Glace (90)
Total MP: 593 and up.
This is the max Int set.
The database in the game is apparently missing tortoise shield which would give you a total of +78 int. This set up doesn't necessarily mean the best, it just gives you an idea where the max you can get is at. Of course again some pieces are hard to obtain or very expensive.
You can also add another 14 intelligence with fully merited hailstorm and by eating the following food:
** Cream Puff
Total Int: + 92
The Magic Attack Bonus Set!
On the set above, I have left out staves because if I am not mistaken they don't give MAB but actually Magic Dmg Bonus. Also, no food that we know of gives MAB.
Total MAB= 67
The next are all skill sets
Ok, the sets above show where you can get the most out of the magic skill. For enfeebling the site doesn't have thanatos baselard under scholar so I couldn't put it. Also, on elemental I choose seveneyes for weapon because it doesn't have any element to it. As will all those sets, the amount of skill you get will depend on your choice of arts.
Total Enfeebling= +52
Total Elemental= + 59 or 62 (Depends if using Aquilo's Staff)
Total Enhancing= +37
edit: Coming soon Magic Accuracy set, mind set and mp while healing set.
