Looking at all the new toys BLM is getting, I think SE is making an attempt to differentiate the two jobs (SCH and BLM) in the coming updates. It seems they'll be staying one nuke ahead of us, and a -ja line as well. Whereas SCH is getting its own unique tools (I'm sure those two new spells for us are enmity modification spells), which I do think is good. I wonder if BLM will ultimately get tools to pull away from us in the nuking game. I was hoping for a Helix II line in the coming updates, but if one more update passes without Geohelix II, my hope for that diminishes. I'd also be interested in seeing SCH get its own unique nuke of sort, like a Light and Dark elemental one, further down the line as well.
On the other, oft forgotten, hand - our Light Arts seems to be getting stronger. Regen III will be nice, and I do look forward to the new enmity spells. But I have to wonder how much use they'll find. If people really cared that much about who has hate when, then we'd see more THF or /THF action. Though of course, since it won't require nearly as much setup as SATA (assumedly), the spells should be more feasible as well. It would be nice to throw up enmity down on a BLM party, or enmity up on a tank. Either way, I am glad to see us get another unique role.
