    I'm looking forward to your guides, Helba. Are you still interested in the cartography aspect of XIV? I hope so, because I was looking forward to it :)

    It no longer became necessary as, that information became available on xivdb.com a few days after I finished collecting the maps, they were .DAT mined as well, so they are more accurate. Though we can take the time to put them in a separate thread if you wish, as their software is a bit laggy with the maps.

    My goodness, Succor + Barrier + Crit has the potential to mitigate so much damage.

    It's actually pretty ridiculous if these numbers are correct. Not to mention it will be stackable with Stoneskin and Protect and the whatnot.

    Wow. The effective healing of the SCH just skyrocketed. Instead of the pure healing number of a WHM, which a decent amount would go to overhealing, the SCH can top health off nicely and followed by a shield to block the next incoming damage.

    I wonder if the shield has a cooldown before it wears off. If not.. Homygoodness. It also does depend on what type of damage the shield blocks. If it is all.. Hooooomygoodness.

    So does anyone know if the gambit like system for pets can set fairies to auto heal on their own or if they pet skills or not on global cooldown?

    At first, I was reading this and thinking "SCH may very well replace WHM", but now I think I kind of understand: WHM is just an emphasis on AoE/party heals while SCH offers the buffs to help prevent some damage. I guess the ideal party would consist of both a WHM and SCH? But then, a lot of CNJ skills can be cross-classed into SCH, so aside from MP, I don't see what's stopping a SCH from replacing a WHM altogether xD Not to mention those Fairies....

    Well ideally an 8 man party will have both. SCH protect won't have magic def (shell effect) to it. Then they don't have the big heals and bigger aoes whm have like Medica, Regen, Benediction and Cure II and III, and in battle raise (unless arc/sch get similar trait for their resurect)

    4 man groups either would be sufficient. I can see later on in big fights it would be great if you could set fairy to heal non tank party members and have whm keep eye on whole party. SCH focus tank to keep the damage barrier on as much as possible with whm popping a big cure after a big attack or something. Just my 2 cents! But i'm planning on lvling both with priority on SCH!

    I think the point is for them to be interchangeable. If you couldn't replace a WHM with a SCH, then SCH is subpar. It is the same how MNK, DRG, BLM.. are all interchangeable for DPS. Each brings a little variety, but in the end serve the same purpose.

    You wouldn't want a WHM and SCH in a 4 man party; it'd take forever to kill anything. But for 8 man and the 24 man raids, I could definitely see major benefits of having both. Overall depending on duration and stacking ability of barriers from SCH though, you would be better off with 2 WHMs than 2 SCHs if you had to choose.

    SCH will be able to use Resurrect.

    Resurrect = Raise? Or are they completely separate skills. That's a neat feature for the SCH to have lol

    Yeah i know but no one knows if they can use it in battle like whm can because of their later trait. I'm guessing whm will be only one who can. Could be wrong though but since resurrect is ACN is classified as dps i see more of their traits going towards enhancing enfeebles and pets.

    That seems to be correct. Also, the abbreviation is "ARN." The one for archer is "ARC." Just so everyone knows.

    I'm really hoping so, but likely not.

    In 1.0, the damage requirements for some of the boss mechanics were so strict that groups only ever brought one tank and one healer, sometimes even just a THM with cure on heals. Something tells me this could be the case again, in which case the scholars passives + damage prevention (mitigation is ALWAYS better than soaking, see also Ninja in XI) may prevail as the go-to 8man healer, especially if its Aetheral MP recovery system is as potent as it seems, it could very well leave them open to be constantly spreading DoTs through the battle and adding to DPS.

    Warrior / Scholar is going to be a dangerous combination in PVP and also for a raid combo. Now, when we go 24 man it doesn't matter. We'll have a little of everything. Yay for big-boy raids.

    I do have one big question though.
    Conjurers can swap their INT and MND at will while Arcanists are lured towards putting all their attribute points in INT.

    Will Scholars have the same system or will they have an ability that makes INT work as their MND?
    This will have a profound effect on how much planning you have to do allready from level 10 as you start putting your points in different stats.
