FF14GILHUB Goal is to Better FFXIV Gil Service,Cheaper Final Fantasy XIV Gil!

Another FFXIV Red Mage Kit Idea

Leaving this here for opinions.

 

Red Mage Theme (What I'm trying to accomplish):

- "Jack of all trades" Melee/Caster DPS hybrid

- Able to use minor Black and White Magic (-ra spells)

- Usually has a unique mechanic involving spells (Doublecast/Fastcast)

- Sometimes enchants weapons with magic (Enspell)

- Wields Rapiers

 

Utility:

- Emergency Healer (Tranquil Heart + Cura)

- Raid Haste buff

- Stun (3s/20 cd)

- Dispel (If this ever sees use)

- 10% magic/piercing res down (only one target)

 

Equipment:

- Int based melee equipment

- Rapier Mainhand (grants physical damage, skill speed goes here, if at all). Orb Offhand (grants magic damage as if it were a main hand weapon, no auto attack stats. Spell speed goes here, if at all). That solves part of the damage issue. Enspell handles the rest.

- Relic: Joyeuse has been used already in the Little Ladies' event this year, though it would've been the ideal rapier. Either the Last Letter or Diabolique would work in its place. As for the off hand...the Soul of Thamasa seems like a good Orb to give a nod to.

DPS Priority/Rotation:

- Lunge

- Use Daring Blow to stack to Temper V/VI

- Bravery:

- Reapply Thundara/Aera/Resolve via Thundara->Stonera->Aera

- Astral Cut/Umbral Sweep

- Osmose

- Faith:

- Maintain Temper VI via Daring Blow

- Cycle through elemental Combo

- Use Chainspell/Raging Strikes, spam Stonera/Watera and reapply DoTs till chainspell ends.

- Syphon

- Weave in Double/Triple on Stonera/Astral Cut for single target DPS, Watera/Umbral Sweep for AoE.

- Checkmate to consume Bravery/Faith.

 

Design Thoughts:

- Doesn't hit all the utility RDM is known for as much as I'd like. It's mainly the lack of Silence/Sleep. Refresh isn't a make or break deal for me.

 

- Slightly more unique melee weapon skills. Could use some tweaking, especially in numbers.

 

- Does give a nod to FFXI with the elemental combo chain. Debating if Fira should combo from Blizzara. Ideally you can start the combo anywhere, but lean towards Fira. Might need rewording to accomodate that.

 

- Has a BLM feel to it with the Brave/Faith stances, while still being flexible enough to dot/maintain buffs.

 

- Imperil might be a bit strong. Has to stack with Foes/Hypercharge as is. Should reward rdm/brd/smn/blm line-ups, though the synergy with drg is worrisome. Raw DPS might push out NIN/MNK.

 

- Haste really should be named Hastega, but that gripe aside, this gives them some decent raid utility.

 

- Numbers in general need checking. Opted for multiples of 25 in TP costs to avoid awkward TP situations in Bravery. Same idea with equal MP costs for each dps spell.

 

- Tranquil Heart was a concession to how healing has to work on a DPS with infinite MP. It's an emergency cooldown. Cura's main utility is being a cheap Esuna.
