    Does anyone have the "perfect" Stun set for SCH/Legion? I may be missing some item or not that I don't know of, or that's super situational. Also, how exactly does the Magian Staff factor into the equation? With Alacrity, March x2 (Ghorn), Haste, does gear Haste need to be capped / does capping it do more than cut off a fractions of a second? My recast seems to give varying results, between 4-8 seconds, and I'm wondering if it's possible to:

    A) Is 4 seconds the lowest recast possible?
    B) Are varying times caused by Spellcast having difficulty swapping all pieces in time for such a quick spell?

    8-9 seconds should be the lowest recast without alacrity, 4-5 with, so you should already be capped. Are you having spellcast swap in your stun gear midcast or precast? Midcast will give you variable results for low cast time spells like stun.

    Rule is set for precast in Legion. If that's the case, what's the highest Skill/M.Acc possible with lowest recast? There's virtually enough time with a 4 second timer to recast Thunderstorm if it wears off, so Obi/Cape is always an option too.

    You should be using thunderstorm already because of klimaform and relic boots.

    What are good blu feet to TP in, dont have Thaumas yet and I dont need a haste piece. I checked, but nothing really seemed to stand out (looking at AF2+2 since it looks like it has a useful aug either way)

    As soon a level correction exists or defense becomes uncapped AF3+2 is ahead of thaumas. So in reality thaumas is marginaly superior. Basically if you don't systematically bring your pocket daurdabla bard with dia2, stick to AF3+2. It's required for VS anyway.

    Currently using:

    MAcc Magian/DarkSkill Grip/Aureole/---
    Hyaline Hat/Aesir/Abyssal/--- (If you carry loq., would go here)
    Anhur/Avesta/Maquette/--- (If you carry Prolix, would go here)
    Merciful/Ninurta/Portent/Argute +2

    The Legion-Haste ear would be another option instead of Loq. if you've already bought it for other jobs.

    4seconds is the lowest it gets w/ Alacrity+Thunderstorm+Embrava+March, which is about as low as it matters - any faster and you won't have time to use alacrity again between casts.

    How does your equip affects accesionable spells? Stoneskin, phalanx, enspell, etc.
    Does for example stoneskin+ equip affects accessionated stoneskins or works only on yourself?
    Same applies for Phalanx?

    Iirc, the caster's MND is used in determining the potency of the Stoneskin, but any "Enhances Stoneskin" gear must be on the player when they receive the effect, rather than the caster.

    According to the synergy thread, Shura Haidate (+1), the only way to get STR is from the random pool, and it should only go up to 5. I'd chalk anything past 5 as POIDH

    Scored a tessera saio today. I assume af3+2 for impetus up and thaumas coat for impetus down during tp. And af3+2 for impetus up and tessera saio when impetus down for victory smite? Or will tessera saio beat af3+2 with impetus up for victory smite?

    Dunno about Stoneskin, but enhancing skill boosts Phalanx for everyone if you Accession it.

    Player stats, from native stats + equipment bunus affects everyone, I.E., 500 enhancing will let you Accesion 35 enspells on everyone. But "enhances whatever" equipment is player-specific: enhances stoneskin only adds SS HP to the wearer, enhances protect only adds defense to the wearer, enhances enspell damage only adds it to the wearer, etc.
