probably something like this
ItemSet 326813
fTP neck should be slightly weaker if my napkin math is right.
didn't bother to napkin but I doubt 2% wsd in the ear would win against either of those MAB ears.
Could probably replace several slots with WSD dark matter augments... but no, just no.

likely similar to this. with potential swap to raetic staff +1 and merlinic body.
ItemSet 325975

Kaustra on the other hand. ugh...
Apparently someone discovered new stuff about it.
He suggested mizukage neck but that set may have been made before argute stole was available.
Looks like INT is super important. to the point where 2INT > 1 Dark element"MAB" until dINT of 300 where INT becomes worthless.
ItemSet 325978

Link to his post where he explains his set; I only think I understand part of it due to google translate.

Oh and apparently the DoT from kaustra can do 25k/tick?! link

Thank you for those set, Jhakri Feet are a good idea in those slot. Also I did not know Kaustra could tick at that high, I may need to use that more often now.

Hey guys. So while I wholly appreciate the ease of Akedemos vs augment hell, is it truly that hard to beat it with Grio? It would seem all you need to match or beat Ake would be >INT+10 >MACC+12 >MAB+24 MB+10 on non weather/day nooks and with >30 MAB (with same or greater int/macc/mb)it could stand toe to toe or surpass Ake. Granted it's a stretch to get those augmentations so I guess the real question is are the stones worth it?

We're SCHs -- when are we ever without weather?

which would be more useful for solo cping? a chironic melee set or occult acumen set? probably start in reisenjima then consider apex mobs and skillchains.

So its generally accepted that there is no way to beat Akedemos with Grioavlr no matter what you get on it?

Correct, You could use Grio for and Enfeeble piece or enhancing duration piece if you didnt have gada/ammurapi shield.

Grio for nuking is probably best served as a Death piece for BLM with nice MP aug and MBD

I don't think I've ever had Kaustra over 200 and I have a similar set to the above. Granted I'm usually only doing it because I used Rasa to restore strats. Is there any NM of note that actually takes decent damage from it?

Ok last question. With Emp feet being best on straight bursting, is emp head worth using when Ebullience is up? It would seem so as the bonus is a similar or same term as the Klimaform bonus from feet, and of so would it be better to still strive for MB1 40÷ rather than lose the ~11% in the feet slot? Similar int/mab/macc stats withstanding, of course.

with the lack of other stats on head and feet; they're both falling out of use. Feet are a pure 15% increase without having to lose out on a stratagem.
head is a 12.5% increase and requires wasting a stratagem.
Will wearing head increase your chances of a resist?
No? then does the INT/MAB/MB on the other piece of gear increase damage by at least 12.5%? probably

The guy who actually hit cap damage with it ... if I google translated all his buffs properly and target... did it against an apex crab with impact > (gravitation) MB + ebullience + bolster idris acumen, malaise, entrust-INT. to get his dINT > 300. I think he also had a RUN hit it with Gambit...
Against an NM, that'd probably take all the above + shattersoul + rayke + bolster focus, languour + burn. maybe toss in some bard INT songs for good measure.

Haha, so you'd basically need a whole party (GEOx2, RUN, RDM for Frazzle III, BRD for threnody, SCH) to support you to get decent numbers with it. At least at that point you can just laugh at it while its HP ticks away.

My Helixes make me sad.. I see people solo doing like 9k+ on the videos of SCH solos online, but when I try on the same mob with a Dunna GEO most I'll typically see are 6k+. Not using Noctohelix so I don't use the set above. I'll post my set and augments when I get home to see what my issue is. (Do temps and food make that big of a difference that GEO wouldn't be able to compensate for?)
