I'm trying to get my character to appear in my signature, but I keep having issues with the signature code.
Zam doesn't allow these kind of links in signature. They provide their own sigbanners, which you can get by looking in the HOME menu > Signature Editor
Anyway, to answer your question though, I do have Cure and Stoneskin already through my conjurer, but my main discipline is my lancer at Rank 14 and my physical level is 16.
Level Thaumaturge to 4 for Sacrifice
as well. This way you can cast them en rafalle
to heal yourself faster than waiting on Cure's cooldown.
You'll want either THM10 or CON10 for Damnation
for MP regeneration. I suggest THM10 as it gives you access to Punishing Barbs
as well, which is an invaluable solo tool.
Get yourself some rank10+ armor. Most of it should be fairly cheap at the Clothier's ward in uldah, since the weavers live in that city. Hempen shirts, Sarouels, etc. 4 rings for accuracy and some defensive stats is a must, and you can snatch those for 500-900gil a piece at the jeweler's ward.
Let go of Stoneskin, it's a waste of time for the most part.
You need lots of points in VIT for HPs. Some in MND for a minimal amount of MP for cures. The rest should go in STR/DEX (even split).
Bronze spear are expensive because they're used by goldsmiths to make brass spear, and they take a pretty hefty amount of synths to create. You should already get yourself the brass spear, at your rank, since you outlevel the bronze one anyway.
Make sure to always keep Speed Surge up if you're not (since every attack heals you when you have it up), and abuse Trammel's low TP cost. Doomspike is VERY nice on dodos, though, so if you can get a nice 3k TP attack on them, especially as an opener --- the first attack when you engage enemies never miss.
Circle strafe constantly during fights against dodos. You will hit them for additional damage as you hit their flanks or back, and they often start "charging" a belch, which means they stop moving. Mobs also start using their moves more often once they are damaged, so try to get them to 50% then begin the circle strafing. Also, belch is a frontal cone attack, so you can avoid it and not get blinded/slowed/slept if you do.
Good luck. Edited, Dec 12th 2010 8:02pm by Docent42
