Advice on Current Gear
- If you are using gear for long enough, have it melded with non-sps dps materia
- Do not skimp out on iLvl just because a piece has more sps
- Main stat upgrades and WD > sidegrades until you can get BiS pieces
While gear is important, focus more on improving your play before worrying about gear stats
Potions in Progression
Especially if attempting early clears it is prudent to carry the highest grade healing potions as an additional safety net while learning encounters.
While pushing for the clear you’re more wanting to use your Infusions for damage.
MP restoring potions like Ethers are also useful for raid recovery to enable additional resurrection casts in order to salvage a run. Resurrection costs 24% of a SMN’s MP pool per cast.
