So, I recently got SCH to 95. (Yes, I did aby-burn it from 37 onward; please don't take my cap and tassel away..)

I looked through the stickies and stuff, but most of the information seems to be as old as the job itself, so I thought I'd ask current SCHs' opinions. I probably won't be on SCH very much, but I don't want to be completely gimp, so any help would be appreciated.^^

A. Where is SCH with subjobs? Is there one that you use 99% of the time, or do you switch between subjobs as you switch between roles?

B. Merits:I'm only looking at job-specific merits, but since a lot of my non-job-specific merits are geared towards BLM, they should help SCH, anyways. Looking at recent threads, I'm seeing 5/5 Helix and Sublimation for Group 1, and 5/5 Storm and Enlightenment for Group 2. (I know there's debate about Focal, but I have INT and enfeebling merits for BLM already, and probably won't be using SCH over my other, better geared and more in-demand jobs, for anything really nasty that would have an outrageous resist rate, anyways.) Do those merits sound about right?

C. Equipment that says "Enhances X Stratagem": Do I just macro it in for the JA, and then swap to my normal spell-casting gear for the spell, or do I have to wear it for both the JA and the spell?

A) /RDM is the big one. You can find some uses for /whm, /blm, and /nin, but /rdm is the most commonly used subjob by far.

B) Yeah that's what I went with. If they make Modus Veritas better (they're at least lowering recast) that's a possibility too, but it depends on what it looks like (and if it's still resisted a lot)/

C)It has to be on when the strategem is consumed (i.e. when the spell goes off). This is explained on wikipedia:
