From the person who brought you the massive skill chain guide for sch. I now bring you a skill chain and MB that will bring BLM and NM's to their knees and deaths!!!! And I dedicate this to Our GM void.
While doing Sobek I would two hour and use Kaustra. 4000-6000. I did use the one temp for Magic attack acc + bonus.
So he would die as you fled for 60-90 seconds.
Thewn I took it to the next level. Luminhelix + stone = distortion + Shattersoul = Darkness MB Kaustra = 9500!!!!!!!!! That's about 2500 DoT every 3 seconds!!! Even 30M meteor taru's will have to bow to our power!!!!!!!
On side note, Almace is MINE!!!!!!!
Atmas used: Maybe a better combo out there: MM + Cosmos + Ultimate. I wish I had PW's atma :(.
BTW Mujin band owns for this, as it is 5% bonus to SC + MB.
So this brings me to another question. I am guessing no one has tried it Can We Skill Kaustra + Kaustra = Darkness? Then of course MB it a 3rd time, as it should be ready by the 1st person who did it? Assuming you had two members?

Skillchaining with spells on Scholar really isn't that hard to figure out, since as long as you know the normal skillchain chart, you can figure out how to skillchain with spells. Just match the element of the spell with the appropriate skillchain property.
Light - Transfixion
Darkness - Compression
Fire - Liquefaction
Thunder - Impaction
Wind - Detonation
Earth - Scission
Water - Reverberation
Ice - Induration
Luminohelix is light based, thus aligned with Transfixion, and Stone is Scission aligned since it's earth based. A Transfixion opener with a Scission closer will be Distortion given how the skillchain charts work. As long as you know the elements of the spells, then you'll know how to skillchain. It's not a special guide you need to have like Blue Mage, where it's unclear what all properties it has, so it's uncertain where spells might fit as far as openers or closers.
I also wouldn't downplay Meteor that much, since, in Abyssea, multiple Black Mages using Meteor are hitting levels that are otherwise brew only, whereas that combination you're listing with Kaustra is not much different than what normal DDs are capable of doing in there with proper Atmas. It's really good damage, but give a Black Mage a few solid elemental nukes during a skillchain and they'll put up just as much damage in about the same amount of MP expended. Not to mention that, barring something like intense soothing lights, you may not be able to use it again for a couple of hours, whereas Black Mages will be up and running with Meteor in 15 minutes, not to mention cannot be resisted, whereas Kaustra could.
