I forgot the Light Arts category was specific to Regen. I'm sure adding that 60 seconds in will do it. I knew it was something simple.

Regarding your question on LA's bonus I read a BG thread but it may have been referring solely to Perpetuance. Either way, with the JP I should figure it out. Argh, can't believe I didn't think to look at JP. Could have saved so much time...
From BG ~2012:
Quote:
"Increase the effect duration of Regen while under the effects of Light Arts. Increase effect duration by 3 seconds."

1/10 job points allocated

Regen V base duration without Light Arts effect - 108 seconds

[14:16:26] blah Regen V → blah (Regen)
[14:18:18] blah's Regen effect wears off.

Difference of 112 seconds observed. 108+3 = 111 s. Consistent with help text

Regen V + perpetuance (AF3+2 hands) duration without Light Arts effect - 108*2.5 = 270 seconds (4:30)

[14:20:48] blah Regen V → blah (Regen)
[14:25:27] blah's Regen effect wears off.

Difference of 279 seconds observed. (108+3)*2.5 = 277.5 s. 108*2.5 +3 = 273 s.

It seems like the base duration is increased before the effect of Perpetuance is applied.

Couple questions that I got from reading through a lot of these posts.

What's helix Zombie-ing?

Also, with this possible new information about using helix in SCs for longer windows, should I stick all the closings of my SCs as helix? I already did for my macros but may switch back.

Not to mention I'm still new to a lot of the sch stuff, picked the game back up a couple weeks ago and somehow I have the MB staff, neck, and all jhakri+1 and trying to improve my gear from there. XD Shiroikiri on Asura and just made my macro sets, now going to work on GS so I don't have just the one set I use.

Helix zombie-ing is keeping a helix active on an NM if you are dying. That way, you can stop it not only from regen once you die and it goes unclaimed, but it continues to deal damage as you are Reraising, calling trusts, and buffing. Just be sure to reclaim it before, or as soon as the helix wears off, sonit doesn't heal for 10% every tick, and make sure you reclaim and stay alive once it's HP is under 10%, so your helix doesn't kill it while you are dead or when it's unclaimed, so you don't lose your drops.

Hey guys, looking to get SCH started here. I know this question is on every page for every damn job and no one wants to hear me ask it, but it's honestly easier than scouring 60 pages...

Anyone mind sharing their lua? I almost got away with using that old one a couple threads down, but it seems to lack stuff like a Klimaform mode and I'd feel a little better with something that's been maintained.

Thanks in advance (don't hit me, please!)

There's a lot of flavors to meet playstyle, some people like mine and others hate it.

Thanks a bunch, this is perfect. I'm not too picky with lua's as long as they work and reasonably accommodate the essentials, so this will be more than enough.

What are you guys using for DT sets? I'm not even sure how to start building them but feel they'd be crucial for trying to solo things.

D ring, Mallqis Body +1, merlinic head hands feet and legs all with -4/5 DT. If you can get -5 DT on merlinic in this set it hits the 50% cap. Terra's staff/Mensch strap +1, Staunch tathlum, slipor sash, soleminity cape also all equippable by sch.

I use a variation of this set on blm for mana wall tanking but it's also my oh shi set for sch. When soloing though you should still be idling in your refresh set unless your trusts go down^^

Heads up though, DT -4% is an incredibly rare augment, and DT -5% I think requires dark matter. I recommend waiting for a skirmish augment campaign and augmenting hagondes +1 gear for PDT+MDT -4%. Wailing stones +2 have a pretty OK track record of getting there. As for wailing stones +1, in my experience it can take around 150 per piece of hagondes, but that is nothing compared to the amount of fern stones you would spend going for DT -4%.

I do agree that a merlinic set would be more ideal, but it's also so much more difficult to get.

I got -4% DT once when going for FastCast and didn't keep it sadly. It's an "accident" off-roll so... ya good luck.

SKCNM campaign is dropping Wailing +2 and sacks of +1's, so it's a good time to work on Hagondes. It's raining Duskdim +2's for us duration junkies too.

DT-4 isn't all that rare. I spent about 16m on stones to complete my DT merlinic set. Nothing compared to what it cost to make a good Rng herc set ;;

Any fights for SKCNM that you recommend? (also, 16M? I've had like 4m max ever at one time XD)
