tell me about it! hit 75 around feb time, only yesterday i capped out healing magic....from 273 to 276....how?.....1 merit party for about 2hrs if that, i started throwing cures on Jnun, party was ok with it when i told them i was close to cap and all i wanted to do was cap it then wouldn't continue doing it, exp still happened and didn't compromise me doing my job.
Healing magic is way too hard to cap though through the normal methods, capping it on undead is ALOT quicker.
but to the OP, good work.
This. If you want to level curing magic, dont waste your time on being a PL or hoping it will cap through normal methods. Get into some situation where you are fighting DC+ undead mobs (unless you are 5 from cap of course, then EM). Cast cure on undead mobs. For some reason, I have found that raising a skill when directly cast on a mob works MUCH faster than when you cast on party members or with only yourself as a target (and yes, SMN's BP: Rage works like this as well for all of you SMNs out there, dont waste your time summoning and releasing carby, just use BP: Rage on an appropriately levelled monster).
Personally, I am going to go WHM/BST one day where there are charmable mobs and undead targets and just get my healing magic to cap.
EDIT: Wait, what? You can cast on IT mobs without aggro? Damn, thats much easier than I initially thought. Edited, Jul 20th 2009 9:10am by ManifestOfKujata
