I have a question, sorry if this has been covered elsewhere, but how good is shattersoul on sch? Specifically versus realmrazer. I have 5/5 realmrazer but I'm looking for a third merit ws to use.

Awesome thread, thank you for taking time to make it. On a hiatus from the game but when I get back in I have been interested in SCH so this is an awesome resource.

Also I always love your avatars.

Hello! You have done a very nice job with this thread, but I think there are some small changes that will make it better.
For stratagems, I think it is important to note that grimoire bonus they affect, they also overwrite.
Such as Penury/Parsimony: reduce spells to 1/2 base MP cost, without 10% cost reduction.
Celerity/Alacrity: reduce final casting and recast by time 50% (after all other fast cast and haste) as well as negating grimoire's bonus. For casting/recast purpose, relic hat and AF feet become useless.
Accession/Manifestation: double only MP cost and recast time. Again, grimoire bonus does not apply, so it is double base MP/recast time and relic/AF have no effect for recast.
Rapture/Ebullience: Though not as important, Rapture works with Banish line and dia. Ebullience works with Drain and Aspir.

For, precasting armor Rubeus glove and pants would grant .04 fast cast, over Repartie glove's .02.
For cure set you have suggested, I think relic+2 hat or zelus tiara would be more ideal without Iaso cap. We have only 2 cures, so I think being able to cast them quickly is as important as making them strong.
For enhancing magic, augmented earring is able to get +3.
Foï½’ helices because of the formula, staves are basically multiplier, so rainbow staff will not be better for helices any time it is not better for other elemental magic. 1.35*1.15 is better than 1.15*1.25
For merton, it is like a big helix. So, like helix spells, int is better than magic attack, even though it has such high damage. As per jp wiki, formula is:
Damage = (LevelFormula * INT difference formula)
LevelFormula = (CasterLevel * 2/3)
INTDifference = ((TargetINT-CasterINT) * 67/100) + 37} / 10

I think that is all, sorry for length.

I ~think~ the clubs sch gets access to are pretty weak compared to staves, but I wouldn't waste a merits on shattersoul unless you have no other WSs you want to merit.

STR, which mage jobs lack.

INT/Skill would of course be better.

It was actually a mistake, was ment to be Aife's annulet. I'm going to edit in some "potential swaps" soon to adress some alternative pieces.

Missed Moepapa pendant! Kimora said kaustra is a big helix, does any one know if that means it has a 100% weather proc like helixs do?

Don't think it does, and it has a different damage formula.

floor(floor(0.067*Lv)*(37+floor(0.67*dINT)))

dINT=YourInt-MobINT

Caps at 300.

So the max Kaustra dmg before MAB and Affinity/Staff/Weather bonuses is 1570.

KK, I think I addressed/edited in all points so far. I still plan to add some "easier to attain" gear/sets at somepoint, but have I have a bit more new stuff I want to add before I get to that.

Very nice!

Desert Boots definitely deserve a mention in the movement speed section once you get to the "easier to obtain" stuff.
