Alice rants about FFXIV: Helpful Notes About Scholars

So, recently I’ve been running into a lot of people (DPS and tanks, let’s not point fingers here.) who don’t seem to understand how Scholars heal. Here’s some tips to help those people out!

1) We are not AoE healers. We have access to two AoE heals: Succor, which has the breathtaking potency of 150 (300 when we factor in Galvanise, the same as a single Embrace.) and Whispering Dawn, which, unless we blow Rouse (1 minute CD) and/or Fey Illumination (2 minute CD), is a 100 potency regen on a 1 minute CD of its own. Don’t whine if we can’t heal through an excess of party wide vulnerability down stacks. *cough*Catoblepas*cough*

2) We rely on damage mitigation. We do not have any big heals. Well, that’s a lie, Adloqium is essentially 600 potency, and a crit Adlo is 1350, but you’ll only see half of that since the other half is you not taking damage. Lustrate is also 25%-75% HP, depending on how many Aetherflow stacks we’re willing to use on it.

3) We have a lot of MP. And I mean a lot. A Scholar’s MP bar not being half empty doesn’t mean they aren’t healing. Well, it can, but it’s generally safer to assume they’re actually casting Aetherflow and Energy Drain. You know, the spell that we can use every minute for 20% of our MP back and the 150 potency HP/MP drain. In fact, if a Scholar’s MP bar is low and they aren’t exclusively casting Adloquium or Succor, it’s a pretty safe bet the problem lies elsewhere!

4) Swiftcast has a cooldown. Now, this applies to WHMs as well, but I’ve seen it enough times to mention it anyway. Sometimes, multiple people die at once. And sometimes, those people would be much better off not dead. If you see a healer hardcasting Resurrection/Raise, that does not mean they do not have Swiftcast. And remember, Scholars also use Swiftcast so they don’t spend 5 seconds resummoning their fairy.


So there you go. Scholars, they aren’t White Mages. Or tanks, but that’s a topic for another time and place.

Don’t let your children drink water it might make them think drinking other clear liquids is okay do you want your child drinking bleach

don’t let your children walk, it might make them think its okay to walk away from home

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m pretty sure not even people who use heroin believe it is beneficial.

Don’t let your child breathe air. Studies have shown thatin the event of a fire, children who breathe in air are much more likely to breathe in smoke than children who’ve never breathed air.

Don’t have a child. 100% of children grow up and die. You’re literally condemning your own children to die.

… Because they’re significantly more likely to die young from horrifying preventable diseases?

what. the actual. christing monkey FUCK. 


can’t stop laughing. ohmygosh.

this is so fucking stupid

Ads like this are like, criminally negligent and misleading, and whoever made it should be fucking ashamed of themselves. 

They know they’re in a losing battle, but they’re still grasping at straws.

File this under one of the stupidest things I’ve ever seen.
And what the hell is going on with that logo?!

Uh, guys, it’s from Something Awful. It’s fake.

Fonhandle, An Accessory That Adds a Handle to the iPhone

Clearly it’s for those of us with teeny tiny hands. But then you have to solve the dilemma of getting it into your pocket, so I guess we’re at square one again.

You mentioned Garruk's pronunciation, would you be able to give official pronunciations for the others?

markrosewater:

Jace rhymes with “Face”.

Chandra is “SHAWN - dra”.

Liliana is “LILL - ee - a - na”.

Nisa is “NISS - a”.

Ajani is “a - JAH - nee”. “JAH-Nee” is “Johnny”.

SHAWN-dra? My whole life is a lie. ;_;
