Hello there! As you can see in my signature, my SCH is only 50 right now, but I am trying to get it to 75 as quickly as I can. In the mean time, I am trying to plan my gear sets ahead of time so that I can start working on collecting the pieces I will need for it. This is my firs mage job at a reasonably high level, and I'll admit I am still learning a lot of the mechanics of gearing mages, and I'm somewhat unfamiliar with all the gear options that exist.
Here's my problem. I'm a Galka. I don't have a whole heck of a lot of MP. As SCH75/RDM37 wearing the standard damage-based nuking set I was planing on using, I would have somewhere around 480mp, with 8/8 MP merits. That is obviously going to be pretty limiting on my ability to pump out damage, and even moreso on my ability to solo as SCH.
I was thinking of putting together 3 different nuking sets for SCH (please keep in mind I don't do any HNMs). The first would be a Max MP set that wouldn't really have many useful nuking stats, except by accident (or when possible I would choose items with both MP and INT or MAB). After I had used up the excess MP from that set, I would switch to a sort of middle-ground that still has some MP+ but is more heavy on nuking stats, and once the excess MP from there was exhausted, I would switch into my full damage nuking set.
Does this sound reasonable? Is it too much to go through for the benefit I would get?
Also, any suggestions for particular setups to use for any of those 3 sets would be most appreciated. As mentioned, I am still learning about all the endgame gear SCH can use.
