I just got Sch to 90 last week. I have full merits but my skill lvls are still a bit low due to Aby lvling but I have been soloing and bringing up my lvls every night. I have also searched the Sch threads for any and all info I can get about Sch. This brings me to making this thread. I keep reading on how ppl want Sch to get Cure V so they can help heal a party. I feel that healing in parties most of the time does nothing to set Sch apart from Rdm and even Smn as far as them being backup healers.
I came across a thread about Sch being able to self skillchain and I have been working on this aspect of Sch for the last 4 days. I have been soloing the worms in Aby La thiene and I can now skillchain and magic burst a worm to zero hp most of the time. If the worm survives the Distortion skillchain then normally the next tick of Luminehelix kills it. This brings me to my question. Wouldn't Sch be better utilized to enfeeble and DD with self skillchains instead of backup healing? I figure if u are inviting a Sch to heal then you most likely have your procs covered. Getting azure and pearl lights with Sch/rdm is really easy and the potential for melees to create Light and Dark off of our skillchains should make us even more desirable I would think. Am I wrong?
