    As long as the enemy doesn't die in 2 seconds and your confident you won't get hit while casting...7 buffs. Sure. I still feel that people will be better off spreading support responsibilities between a few people though.

    Seems like the listed skills only works for gem runs aka end game aka scammer gems. Its a nichie like tanks since not everyone does gem runs (except mini boss farming)

    Full dps for common casuals, these current support wont help in short runs but might help with close people whatever

    Im currently leveling my support toon now. its a full support no luk stats with main weapon MD :D. many might say full support not needed but it doesn't hurt party having one imho. and sometimes i noticed having 2 types of dps in a party only slowing party dmg output in many situations. Ive been joining gemruns ( new fixed gems with corrected boss dmg boost ) and 2 dps more than enough to kill most of them. having a support in a party = instant resurrection if dps dies.

    here is an example that 2 dps more that enough in any grind

    If you’re going full support, I’d recommend staff and shield instead. Most people are just dps and ignore Aegis and Protection in favor of other skills, and those skill are very important as a support. Another plus to staff+shield is that you get the healing boost based on your int and matk from Bless/Advanced Bless

    shield is more for a tank/semi tank must for me since protection and aegis both lower tier skills of guardian. i think guardian will be needed soon for tanks esp when all the new high dmg, high mpcost/aggro generation, spam able tier 4 skills are released for dps. wish i could equip shield on MD

    On a slight related note, I've been playing around as a rather unique staff fu support.
    Key Gear: Bloom of Peace: -100% aggro & Nightcap (ChocOoze2): +1000CPSD
    Support Skills: Brave Aura & Chakra (I don't have any spare SP for more support skills...)
    Playstyle: Spam Chakra while staying close enough to the fight to offer the benefit of the significant boost of the attack aura. Although you are invisible, its pretty challenging to keep aura up (by not getting hit) especially on bosses who are crazy with AOE. Chakra takes roughly 1.5s, and everyone gets 1mp for it. You can spam in a 1mp combo (effectively costs 0mp), or just cast it straight for 1mp cost.

    Note: You can give someone else 2mp faster by casting 2x Chakra, than if they switched to a staff and used Lvl 1 MP Charge themselves. :cool:

    Its pretty different from your typical builds and rather fun... and so far noone's kicked me from pt yet :D

    Yup add in the Mana Support skill(forgot the name) that restores 50 mana every 3 seconds if you have 250 int and parties will love you.

    I'm maining Knux on mine for the occational armor break whenever I'm prorating as casting Chakra isn't really feasible on some bosses that likes to spam AoEs.
