Hey guys, I have been leveling my blm recently, and I have now hit level 78. I am having some issues and wanted to run some stuff by you and see what I should do.
First, of course my issue is this is my first mage job past 50, so my skill is woefully low. As of the end of my session last night, I had gotten it to 201, I had 6 merits built up already, so before I logged out last night I dumped 3 merits in elemental magic skill, so I have 207 right now. My issue is with magic accuracy. I started initially using Minkin, Ultimate, Brother wolf because I don't have beyond. However, I was getting nearly 100% resists on blizzard III's only doing about 1 in 20 for 1/2 damage, the rest were 110 damage. I noticed that Aero was getting fully resisted a lot less, so I went back to the atma guy, and swapped brother wolf out for gales. By the end of the party, with ascetic's tonics, my Aero IIIs were landing regularly for 1160ish and my Aeroga III's landed upwards of ~1800. My question is this.
The only magic accuracy atma I have is Kirin, which also gives +40 int. Should I swap out gales for that atma, and then start using blizzard and aero while I am skilling up, or should I stick to aero spells, which greatly benefit from the atma of gales?
