So, I recently got SCH to 95. (Yes, I did aby-burn it from 37 onward; please don't take my cap and tassel away..)
I looked through the stickies and stuff, but most of the information seems to be as old as the job itself, so I thought I'd ask current SCHs' opinions. I probably won't be on SCH very much, but I don't want to be completely gimp, so any help would be appreciated.^^
A. Where is SCH with subjobs? Is there one that you use 99% of the time, or do you switch between subjobs as you switch between roles?
B. Merits:I'm only looking at job-specific merits, but since a lot of my non-job-specific merits are geared towards BLM, they should help SCH, anyways. Looking at recent threads, I'm seeing 5/5 Helix and Sublimation for Group 1, and 5/5 Storm and Enlightenment for Group 2. (I know there's debate about Focal, but I have INT and enfeebling merits for BLM already, and probably won't be using SCH over my other, better geared and more in-demand jobs, for anything really nasty that would have an outrageous resist rate, anyways.) Do those merits sound about right?
C. Equipment that says "Enhances X Stratagem": Do I just macro it in for the JA, and then swap to my normal spell-casting gear for the spell, or do I have to wear it for both the JA and the spell?
