Scholar (SCH) Cross-class skills discussion

Cure – Useless, since you have Physick. Protect is also useless if you have a WHM.

Aero, Thunder – Always good to have more DoT’s. I’d go with Aero on this one.

Cleric Stance – People underestimate this skill… A must have to squeeze out full use of your Scholar.

Surecast – Never a bad choice. Use it when damage is inevitable, and a heal right after would be good.

Swiftcast – Need I say more about this skill? +Raise, or +Anything, this skill is a must have.

Ideal Scholar (SCH) Cross-class progression

  1. Arcanist to 15 for: Unlocking other classes.
  2. Conjurer to 4 for: Aero.
  3. Arcanist to 30 for: SCH Requirement.
  4. Conjurer to 15 for: SCH Requirement.
  5. SCH to 50 for: Maximum level.
  6. Thaumaturge to 26 for: Swiftcast.
  7.  Conjurer to 34 for: Stoneskin (All Cross Class Skills Obtained)

Nothing fancy here, you’ll get what you need as you level up.


  • Scholar use skills from: Conjurer and Thaumaturge.
  • Alot of great Utility. Stoneskin, Swift/Surecast

  1. I also have to heavily disagree with not having Protect. If you are the sole healer of the group, Protect is a must. It does have uses even if you have two healers and one is a WHM. You can just quickly cast it while WHM is healing other people on the person you just Raised/Ressurected.

    Also, SCH does not get Thunder anymore.

    I use the following: Swiftcast, Stoneskin, Protect, Aero, Cleric Stance

  2. You should clarify that Cleric Stance is only any use for DPS. Using it to convert INT attributes into MND doesn’t work as you lose 20% of your healing ability while it’s active, which far outweighs even 30 attribute points on MND. And the best healers use WHM, so the point is moot anyways.
