So... I just came back after about a year + of not playing... All the new changes are insane! I love it!

Anyways... I just unlocked SCH last night. Level 12 right now... working hard! What I want to know, is I know that a sch is somewhat dependent on its sub... and I know i'm going to level /rdm and /whm for it...

But can I get away without leveling BLM? because.. i really.. really hate blm....

I'm just going to say that /rdm is the only subjob you will need for the vast majority of the game.

other possibilities:
/whm is meh unless you need to cure a lot of status effects between nukes
/blm is nice when you need to sleepga a lot or stun is important
maybe some odd things like /thf or /nin, but these would be highly situational

But honestly /rdm is the sub I use almost exclusively.

edit:

Scholar isn't near as dependent on it's sub as it use to be. In the most current update they gave scholar blink, stoneskin, and aquaveil. Those three spells are what made /whm and /rdm so attractive.

The other big advantages for redmage sub is that it gives as much magic defensive bonus as whitemage, as much magic attack bonus as black mage, fast cast, and convert. It also gives access to the vast majority of enfeebling magic in the game, which scholar is sorely lacking. It's just a nice all around sub that compliments scholar well.

So aside from the utility of warp, and stun /rdm serves just as much ability as /whm and /blm both?

The only reason in intend to level whm is for teleport spells.... So full timing /rdm is perfectly acceptable in most/all situations?

I'm going to loosely say yes.

The only real thing sub whitemage brings to the table is being able to sit in add. black and cast -na spells at will. The times when you'll find this useful are limited though, and probably preplanned like a lowish man seal party.

Right now /WHM also brings haste to the table, which is not negligible.
