to be fair SCH doesn't get much gear before Emp and VW stuff anyway, its mostly the same **** 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.
