Could easily top that with similar buffs; full Teal etc really isn't conducive to strong damage Maelstroms/Leafstorms.
Additional effects on some of our nukes are at least as valuable as the damage dealt. For example, Acrid Stream's MDB down is a great tool for enhancing everyone's damage in a manaburn setup. Our agas work like SMN's AF Blood Pacts in that damage is not reduced when they hit multiple targets, which is nice for things like killing Mother Globe's adds on the initial pull.
Our nukes won't spike nearly as high as a BLM can but you'll do consistent, MP-efficient damage. Regurgitation and Blastbomb make very strong soloing tools (read: how I got some of my spells, killed a few NMs, etc), and Regurgitation's low-hate properties are situationally beneficial. If you need a job for big shots (magic bursts and such) I'd probably look elsewhere, but BLU isn't a bad nuker on its own.
Now if they'd just give us something better than HQ staves... Edited, Sep 17th 2010 5:14am by Beleren
