So as I approach 60 Astrologian, I'd like to hear from my fellow Astro's what our end-game is looking like? Since I'm coming up on a big problem that I didn't see until 57. I understand Astrologian is the niche healer between White Mage and Scholar, the issue I am seeing is when we build our stats, what's going to become of us as a Healer? Since we take from both Scholar and White Mage respectively. What I mean to ask is this. If we build our Astrologian like either Scholar or White Mage and we end up being paired with another White Mage or Scholar and our stats reflect their class what are we to do? We can't possibly do Crit since we don't gain the shield bonus that Scholar does and we can't possibly build up big heals like White Mage. So if we build like either one of them and are paired with them we essentially gimp ourselves to a one-sided job. So I am wondering what our sub-stats are going tlook like. Piety doesn't seem to be an issue with Lumi. Aether. So building on Piety is out of the question, I almost have 10k MP @ 58. We also don't need Spell Speed due to Lightspeed and our Swiftcast Proc for Benefic I into Benefic II. So as a in-between job, what are our options? Because I see this being an issue. Queue for a Primal. Scholar is a Healer. Uh-oh I built like a Scholar. But have to switch to White Mage Stance! Queue for a Raid. White Mage is Healer. Uh-oh! I built like a White Mage. But have to switch to Scholar Stance! So I am wondering what we're going to do come end-game. Because as Healers our prime goal is to keep the party alive and I don't want to take up a certain stance, put loads of time/gear into it and then be told to swap the stance. I also understand Yoshi-P said to get used to healing in both stances, but I don't know. I think what I plan on doing is building both Crit/Det at the same time, balancing the two out so I can go either or, I think that's the only solution. Since right now, we are the Red Mage of Healers. Thoughts?
