I posted in this forum once a while back and you guys helped me determine that, yes!, /sch was worth doing as a sub for COR (my main). Anyway, I'm back for another piece of advice.
The situation: I have 7 75 jobs already and not a single other job past 37. I'm content for the most part with my job selection (COR, SAM, WAR, BLM, THF, RNG and NIN are my 75s). However, I'm reaching a point where leveling an 8th job to 75 is almost necessary. Everything but my NIN is MAX merited and NIN merits suck as is (I have subtle blow and nin tool expert maxed on it). Plus I actually LOVE meriting on COR and SAM and it would suck to do it for absolutely no purpose.
So I'm considering a few jobs to be next, SCH among them. I think SCH and DRG are the leaders in the clubhouse at the moment. I like the idea of SCH because it would give me a legit healing job (COR/WHM is the best I can do in that department for now) and I could easily switch gears and become a nuker on SCH also. DRG appeals because it's a little different than what I already have and has some kickass merits like Angon.
Another factor is that I don't have a ton time to play (at least not at NA peak hours, I find myself on more during EU peak hours because I work nights). I've plowed through sky, limbus, nyzul etc and gotten all I needed from there so I'd like to avoid a job that would necessitate me going back to them if possible lol. My main focus is and always will be strengthening my COR and my SAM gear-wise. That being said, I also don't want to lvl a job and suck at it. That's not how I play (obviously by the merits I've put in).
For DRG, I already *know* I could put together a pretty solid set of eq at 75 as is. Unfortunately I'd be missing homam body and hands but I have legs and feet. I have 3 pieces of askar, 2 pieces of aurum and 3 pieces of hecatomb. Also have the standard stuff all-DDs use so I think I could lvl DRG to 75 and have some nice gear already.
My question is how much gear would I need to acquire to become a quality SCH? I don't need to be super-omg-wtf elite but I'd want to be considered good. Obviously I'd need a diff gear set based on light arts/healing vs. dark arts/nuking.
My BLM is pretty well geared. I have 7 HQ staves (obviously I'd need to invest in an Apollos to do SCH but for BLM and COR it's not that necessary). I have 7 obis (heh, again light the one I don't have BUT I have the tissue for it and plan on getting one when i'm bored). I guess I'm wondering how a typical SCH nuke eq set differs from BLM. What pieces are the standards etc etc. Obviously on the healing side, I'd need a lot of new gear or can SCH use (and do they use) errant pieces for healing? idk if SCH can even use and i'm at work atm so forgive me if they cant lol.
I'm mainly looking for what gears I'd need to acquire otw to 75 (37 now) to be a pretty good SCH. Thanks in advance.
