SMN and SCH gear 45-50Follow

Putting this in the ACN forum instead of SCH or SMN since I am working on both jobs. Up until this point, I've been using the same set of gear for both jobs. (Yes, INT gear on SCH because I was getting higher MND using INT accessories and Cleric Stance than using MND accessories. That has changed now).

I got level 45 last night, something I wanted to accomplish before I ran the first Garuda fight. Got my AF for both jobs, and am working to find a good set until I get to 50 and can use Darklight and stuff. (FYI, the fight for SCH AF is more than just a bit rough when a FATE pops right on top of you).

Is AF acceptable for those last few levels? What do I use for a body piece? I picked up a Harlequin's Acton for my SCH fairly cheaply on the Market Board. In fact, I was on SCH when I logged out this morning, so you can see my current gear here: http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/character/1556953/ - Ignore the body picture of a red woolen robe if you see it; it's actually the Acton.

My SMN's gear is similar, only I'm using a HQ Woolen Robe (no materia), and HQ INT accessories instead of HQ MND. And SMN AF instead of SCH AF obviously. I was thinking a Coliseum Shawl for my SMN, but I'll have to run Darkhold (unlocked that last night too) for that since they run more than I can afford on the Market right now. However, I might be blinded to something better by the fact that I just really like how the Shawl looks :D

Any suggestions between now and the truly good stuff?

I haven't crunched the numbers, but I'd think that you'd have a hard time getting enough MND from cleric stance to offset the -20% healing potency.

Just picked up my AF for SCH and SMN. Really not a fan of the SCH AF. We look like we are graduating university. As soon as I put on that hat I just imagined how many dungeon bosses would be busting my balls ; p

This again... Lets not do math but look at it this way. MND = Healing Potency. if MND=INT when you swap you now have - 20% MND
In order for you Healing POT to be equal when you swap, you would need to have 20% more INT then MND. This is just to have it be equal. If your
INT is not more then 20% of your MND you are doing less heals. So multiply your MND times 1.2 and see if your INT is great then that number. If it is then by all means go for it you DPS scholar you! If its not greater then 1.2 of your MND then you should stay in none Cleric stance for healing. In my curent gear I have 396 MND and 229 INT. In order for Cleric stance to be equal to my current healing POT I would need INT to be 396 * 1.2 = 475. I would need 246 more INT to just be EQUAL to my current healing POT with the stance on. If you want to see what gear I have on you can look at my sig.
