I posted this on Gamefaqs but thought I should ask here as well. Here is my 2 posts i put on there.

Post#1

First of all this is my first Genkai 5 Fight meaning i have to fight it at 70 cap and i've heard Professor Schultz is even harder then RDM Maat.

I have almost all the gear that they suggested on wiki except maybe a Moldy Earring, and 2x Genius Earrings for INT+8 in my rings slots. My question is should I go with the Enlighted Chain for a Additional INT+3 MND+2 or should i try and get the Elemental Torque (Elemental+7) to combine with my SCH Gown (which gives me +15 to Elemental) to give my Elemental Magic from a B+ to a A+? Also should i go with Ice Staff for nuking him or should i use the approitate elemental staff with Stone IV and such? Thanks for your advice in advance.

Post#2

So I should definatlly get the Elemental Torque then. Little worried about this boss fight thought of doing another job to 70 first even though my SCH is its about 3k tnl from 67 due to the fact people say Professor Shultz took them 30-70 tries to beat as their first Genkai 5.

Personally i think i'm screwed has anyone done this fight as their first Genkai?

I did this as my first Genkai as well and its not so much harder than RDM Maat as it is more based on luck. If your first nuke heals the book instead of hurting it you're pretty much screwed.

Elemental Torque > Enlightened Chain for everything except non-resist Helix spells. The last thing you want to do is have a nuke resist. Just to clear something up Dark Arts + Gown = A- Skill.

Appropriate staves always! NQ staves are believed to give +15~20 MACC which would trump Elemental Magic Skill +10 on top of that the +10/15% damage bonus multiplier make them a far better option.

The fight is a pain in the *** honestly, the good thing is its really easy for SCH to solo a testimony unlike some other jobs.

Here's a quick run down of what I did:

Zone in > Cream Puff > Shell III > Dark Arts > Add: Black > Ebullience > Stone IV on book > (assuming it didn't heal the book) Watch for spell > Cast Thunder III or Blizzard III if the book is using Thunder Spells > Yagudo Drink > 2hour > 50%MP/50%Time/Ebullience > Blizzard/Thunder IIIs on Schultz > at around 30% MP pool I used a Vile Elixir > 50%MP/50%Time/Ebullience > Blizzard/Thunder IIIs on Schultz > Vile Elixir +1 (Untimely Drain on me) > 2hour wears off > Blizzard/Thunder III on Schultz > Win.

This took 8 tries and close to 300-400k in items wasted/lost. I definitely advise going in on a test run with only a Yagudo Drink and getting the kiting/timing down.

So would the Elemental Torque give me a A+ or a normal A Rank in Elemental Magic? Also should i replace my Ether ring and Peace ring with 2x Genius Rings for the INT+8?

A+ @70 = 251 cap.
@70 Dark Arts + AF Body + Torque = 233 + 15 + 7 = 255

So with Torque you'd have higher than an A+ rating for Elemental Skill.

If you can afford Genius Rings then yup replace those. They slightly boost your damage cap on spells and increase your accuracy of the spells.

If you can use spellcast plugin, that will optimize your 2h to the fullest.

check out this Link

Basicly you just need to spam 1 macro and it will apply buffs depending on what u have active.

So lets imagine you activate 2h and you using Alacrity as your macro spam.

This will first check if you have Parsimony active. if not it will activate it instead of Alacrity. Next you hit Alacrity macro again and it will check if Ebullience is active. If it's not it will activate it. Next it will check if Alacrity is active if not it activates.

So this really maximizes your 2h alowing you to spam 1 macro and getting the 3 buffs.

(The script does a little more like cheking what art you on but that is not important here)

SCH G5 was my first one. It is not as difficult as people tend to say, if you are well-prepared. This G5 probably is more about preparation than actually "acting" in the BC. The moment you enter, you just do your stuff and have about one key decision to make, if at all.

I had put together most of the things I know about SCH G5 on the Wiki forums. Most of the information should still hold true.

This is what my gear has been back then: Far from stellar.

NQ Elemental Staff
Lizard Strap +1
Phantom Tathlum
Scholar's Mortarboard
Elemental Torque
Morion Earring
Moldavite Earring
Scholar's Gown
Seer's Mitts +1
Zircon Ring
Zircon Ring
Black Cape +1
Penitent's Rope
Seer's Slacks +1
Custom M Boots

Elemental Torque: I have not tried without an Enfeebling Torque, but surpassing A+ is a good start and you really want to get your nukes stick in this fight, for one resist most likely will make you fail.

Moldavite Earring: Based on my numbers, I maybe would have lost without a Moldavite Earring, because I would have been about 15 points of damage short from killing the book.

I personally had not bothered with Shell III or a Yagudo Drink (but I had a Vile Elixir on me, just in case). All I had done for preparation was eating a Cream Puff and firing a Blink Band outside. After that, I did about this:

* Dark Arts, Addendum: Black
* Alacrity, Ebullience, Stone IV.
* Alacrity, Thunder III or Blizzard III
* Tabula Rasa
* Parsimony, Alacrity, Ebullience gank Prof. Schultz. He doesn't do much, anyway.

It is crucial to not give Schultz enough time to cast Shell III on the book; a virtual HP+20% is bad and will break your plan of finishing the book on two nukes. You could open with Tabula Rasa ganking the book and then Prof. Schultz thereafter, as well. The fight really is that short.

Good luck with that kinda luck-based fight. Though it's not more luck-based than most other G5s, I think.
