Need more information.

You're using a lot of numbers without backing up your claims.

What Scholars are nuking for 1700, and on what mobs? Are you nuking on those same mobs, under the same conditions?

Are you actually testing your equipment, or are you just eyeballing your damage on campaign mobs?

What is your damage gear set? Let's start there.

Right. A problem with your character, 1 of 1000000 only.

How many Elemental Skill merits do you have? Get them.
Invest in Genie Gages. Maybe try to get Yigit Gages.
Try to get Goliard Clogs.
Switch Immortal's Sash to a Penitent's Rope.

Do you need even more Elemental Skill? Look into Druid's Slops.

There's a reason people on HNMs shoot for 320 Elemental Skill and 120 INT, flopping around with 280 skill and 118 INT and then wondering why they're doing 1100+ and you are getting resisted all over the place is not really a mystery.

Not 75 SCH yet, but you might want to consider changing your nuke set slighltly.

This is what I will likely be wearing for my Dark Arts SCH once I am 75.

Just off the top of my head I would replace

AF+1 hat is nice for max damage, Relic is useful if resiting. Ree Hablo's Headgear is nifty as well, from Wotg.

ACP body can be made into a weskit of sorts, the downside is that it looks like a dress. Think there are other options but can't remember atm.

Errant Cuffs >> Goliard would be best +4 Magic Acc +4 Mab / Genie Gages +8 Elemental / Some Wotg Gloves that give +5 Mab

Elemental Torque is nifty, though you should try and get ahold of a Uggy Pendant for when you can proc the MP latent.

I would shoot for a Tamas / Omega / Balhran's

Moldy is spiffy, Novio would look nice next to it, barring that Wotg has a +2 Mab (Crapuad?) earring

Pentinants rope / Witch Sash / Sch AF belt for waist

Gleeman's / Prism / Errant / Astute(?) +5 elemental sea cape would work for your back.

I'd chuck those Cobra feet and replace with Goliard / Yigit.

If I missed any options sorry, Best of luck to ya.

Edit: And cap those elemental merits, on BLM they are useful, I can only imagine how much of a boost they are for SCH.

If this is your gear, then there is a lot of room for improvement. This pity-party attitude, however, isn't going to get much help from people. If you want help from those of us who are more experienced, then post your situation *gear used, mob targeted, and current merits* and we'll give you advice that will help you. After our advice, the burden falls upon you to actually listen and accept the advice.

Ugly Pendant ought to be particularly nice for SCH, because thanks to Parsimony they have the means to really stretch their MP out even while remaining below the 50% mark.

I recently rebought mine for my BLM for 700k after having bought/sold it a loooooooong time ago for my RDM (back then I only used it as a max MP piece and once I got a Beak Necklace +1 I felt there was no point in keeping it). The funny thing is, back then it only cost around 250k, so now I'm getting screwed on the rebuy. It's one of the few items I can think of that has actually risen in price since 2-3 years ago, at least on my server. Blah.

Should never nuke without your Obi's

As for the OP. If all else fails, use Klimaform. Alacrity+Klimaform if you need more constant nukes.
