I use Sylvie. I used her for DRG, DRK, and now MNK soloing Apex pretty much fulltime. She has light-years better MP efficiency than any other non UC mage (minus Shantotto II), but she's heavily hindered behind Cure4. She is not the best self-healer, but if you use KoH and possible Joachim, she gets the job done for apex. She is quick about removing debuffs on you first, and she always stands in range, so Geomancy always takes effect.

Honestly, when I look back at it, there isn't much Apururu/Yoran have done for me in the past that Sylvie+KoH couldn't do. Perhaps soloing D~VD HTBF where you need the extra firepower, but for Apex, Sylvie is generally the best option for a DPS IMO. For SAM specifically, you can 4-step or spam Jinpu to heaven if Qultada is using Chaos/Fighters and Sylvie is using Frailty/Fury. Keep in mind her Frailty is entrusted, but you can cheese it by recasting her every 5~8minutes or so if you want. But for Apex which die in 15 seconds anyways, she's really efficient for a heavy-hitting DD.

For my MNK, the kills are much slower than SAM for sure, but it has high counter to fall back on, so I never notice the lack of curing at all. As long as you're not linking 3+ monsters at once and have horrible kill speed, Sylvie is going to improve your fights a good bit.

One small anecdote about Sylvie is that her spell list pattern is very small, so she usually will cast Haste 1 immediately at the start of battle. If you're using Arciela1 this won't matter much because she'll always overwrite haste 1, but if you use KoH like myself, KoH will never replace Haste1 with his Haste2, which is kind of annoying. So you have to get used to cancelling her haste in favor of 2, if you're using both.
I see, that's what I understood on paper.

Unfortunately I don't kill mobs that fast, granted I haven't tried the SC advised above but I hardly see myself killing that fast if I follow it. I'll try after I'm done with Omen.
I don't take crazy amount of damage but still clearly too much.

I don't have King of Hearts, unfortunately. As it is, I usually run Ulmia, Koru, Qultada, Joachim and Kupipi (changed to Sylvie earlier but haven't unlocked her yet).

I may be missing some WS gear to make things that much efficient, hopefully I get that soon.

I think joachim+koru caps magic haste assuming he uses March and you get haste 2, so ulmia may not be worth using with that combination. In either event, shantotto adds a bunch of damage to skill chains

I was so focused on the SC that I didn't pay attention to Shantotto being able to MB. This should be much faster, I'm gonna finish eating and go out to try this out. Hopefully I unlock Sylvie soon.

shantotto also great at messing up multi step SC.
but honestly good jinpu set + cor / geo 2-3 step apex easily for apex spam.

Didn't think Jinpu spam would be viable at this point.

Jinpu works if you have a good set but honestly a good 4 step double light with shantotto kills everything

Well, I tried Koru, Joachim, Shantotto II, Qultada, Kupipi. Fudo > Kasha > Shoha > Fudo.
I also tried Jinpu but it was noticeably slower.

Worked like a charm, was really fast, good surprise. I just unlocked Sylvie when I had to leave, I'll try with Sylvie instead of Kupipi in a few but I'm already pretty happy with this pace.

Thanks for the tips.

You're welcome.

For sure, replace Kupipi with Sylvie. She's light-years better for SAM, and she won't be doing any amazing healing anyways. Sylvie will give you a huge attack boost and entrust you frailty occasionally when it's up as well, plus will cure4 and remove status ailments as soon as they are up. Only drawback of sylvie is she will cast haste1, which may interrupt koru/koh casting haste2 on you.

Also, she only have access to Cure4, so any large amounts of damage means her healing will be slower. But she has Nott, so she'll never ever run out of MP, except for times where you're taking so much damage that she can't do anything but spam cure4 for several minutes.

Good luck.

Koru overwrites Haste with Haste II thankfully (and Phalanx, too, unfortunately this time). Should be all good with this setup.

Hmm? He's never done so with me, which is a problem when using him and Ygnas together.

That's why you use Arciela. She will overwrite haste, and gives a refresh sphere with Ygnas.

On the stuff I generally need Ygnas on, having as few melee trusts as possible to reduce AoE damage and TP feed is essential, and she's pretty unreliable with the enfeebles.

I dropped Qultada for Ulmia in the end. I take too much damage, which means that Joachim is unable to keep March up. When March isn't up, SCing reliably becomes an issue.

Also there is something I don't understand, I guess it's Ulmia, she insists on giving me Madrigal. I switched from Masamune to Amano and ate sushi in hope I could force her to drop Madrigal but no, she still uses it.
I don't have stellar gear/acc but I'm fairly sure I'm high enough that the AI would default to Minuet or double march instead.

But anyway, having those two BRDs allows Koru to heal quite a bit with his double/triple Ballad, though if I pull non stop I end up dying eventually from Koru running out of MP (usually chain 21-25). I guess this will solve itself once I reach Su3 (though dying allows to dump points and receive useful bonuses so far so I'm not even complaining).

The bards interact weirdly with each other. They'll use songs they normally wouldn't because they see a song effect up and it just assumes it's that song or something so they move onto the next one.

I see. When I do fodder content on the same job and check songs, I usually see Ballad, Minuet, March, March. Only on Apex did I notice a difference. But I may not have paid enough attention before and taken the Minuet for granted.

I'm just curious, does everyone still use af+3 hands when capped magic haste, I feel like relic or a decent aug'd val would win over them rather easy. Or are the used to maintain the X-hit? sorry i have a very well geared koga sam and don't use zan/hasso build, will more than likely be finally giving in and building masa or doji after update (whichever wins after augs!)

Also I am not sure what the Required store tp is on zan/hasso masa build as I don't rely on zanshin procs for my build and the delay difference.

You aren't haste capped unless you're either using 1 piece of +Hasso gear, are getting Hasta Samba, or are using Last Resort.

Ya wasn't sure if the 1.25% was worth it that's all your gaining in capped haste from magic/equipment

Haste becomes more powerful as you get closer to the cap. Also ignoring the 7 STP and high amounts of Accuracy.

SAM TP gain is so fast it’s all about maximum over TP. All our WSs scale so you pile on zanhasso and stp for your basic set.

Kenda for meva,ma and acc.

x-hit builds only really become relevant when you need to wear more defensive gear.
