to be fair SCH doesn't get much gear before Emp and VW stuff anyway, its mostly the same crap BLM and RDM wear, and to be fair to BLM it is the nuking class and with proper Atma a 90 BLM should be out nuking a 95 SCH (or 99) due to native MAB traits.
Lastly, the only part about SCH (or RDM) worth complaining about is healing, a level 60 WHM can still (naked) out heal a 99 RDM or SCH (maybe not with new mechanics but they aren't active yet on Test server (afaik), or live.)
Don't be silly, it's very easy for a SCH to out damage a BLM when doing single nukes. The downside that while the high damage is nice, SCH is still missing nice utilities like stun, manawall, and aga farming. Oh and I almost forgot about yellow triggers.
