SP gain: Darts vs. Spells
So I am trying to decide if spells give more SP than darts, I have done some initial testing and it seems like the spells do. Anyone else with an opinion on that?

From my experience spells give more SP, where as darts give SP more frequently.

In the end, darts seem to be the way to go sadly.
Not sure why they want mages to spam attacks instead of healing, buffing and debuffing though.

I agree with your statements the darts are more frequent/ spells give more SP. The devs also said that MP was something that was to be used sparingly. Reason they dont give a refresh spell or passive mode refresh yet. Darts giving SP more is probably another way to keep that in check.

On a side note... ive found that most times when I cure for 200+ i get a good 120SP or more. But sadly almost everyone in the game has con rank4 so they have their own cure, which cripples the Cons from casting BIG cures on folks and getting that much needed SP.

If it makes you feel better on PUG er... PGL or whatever, I get more consistant SP using Chakram than I do with my attacks, but my normal attacks net higher SP when they finally do net any. To me that suggets it's the way that throwing weapons are coded?
