With a shocking 52-57% chance to Critically hit with magic Critical Magic seems to be what BLM are supposed to do now. The gear that increases Critical Magic Damage is exclusive to BLM, as is some/most of the Critical Magic Chance gear.
I'm pretty new to FFXI, spent my first two months running around and unlocking all the classes to give them a fair shake. I have decided that I want one of my end game experiences to be BLM/SCH and am still in the research phase. However I have never had an end game experience, my highest level character is 40 BRD.
What I'd like to ask is about gear, what people use, what is your one wish list to use, and why.
A census if you please.
My first instincts are to take a stat and just run with it but I don't feel I did it quite right this time but I am fond of potential being critically focused has.
Gear by Slot:
Secondary Weap:Wise Strap
Ammunition:White Tathlum Assuming I can use both throwing and ammo
Headgear:Selenian Cap With Augments: Magic Critical 10% Enmity -4
Earring 1:Hecate's Earring
Earring 2:Sorcerer's Earring Probably will exchange for +int -enmity
Body Armor:Yhel Jacket +1
Hands:Goetia Gloves +2
Ring 1:Galdr Ring
Ring 2:Excelsis Ring If I can find a better one then I'll macro this one.
Waste: Elemental Obi(s) Karin - Fire, Furin - Wind, Dorin - Earth, Suirin - Water,
Else:Moblin Cest - Spellslinger spell crit rate +5%
Legs: Initial -ja Goetia Chausses +2 follow up spells Cybele Pants
Feet:Nebula Pigaches +1 Though may be safe to substitute them for Goetia Sabots +2 without dramatically effecting crit chance.
My wishlist favors critical chance above all else, putting me at 52% (57% with Moblin Cest), and several items doing increased critical damage.
Thanks to /SCH, Twilight Cape, and Elemental Obis I will have 15% bonus to those elements normally to hopefully negate not using an elemental staff. Though I don't know if you can change a belt in combat.
If people have a wishlist built for 95 BLM I would love to see it to compare and get a general sense of what I'm loosing out on for this build.
Edit: This is apperntly my first post, I read and research more than I speak and publish. I like to compare as much info as possible, side-by-side every chance I get.
