a pie focus isnt necessary.. SCH only go mind, SMN only go int, both than split the point 15 to each... pie is nothing more than mana pool and most of the time isn't needed... also if the equation is similair to 1.0 than 1/3 of overall points actually increases mind... so those 30 points are actually 10. if you want just think of it as 10 free pointsJust to tack on a question to this thread on Scholar stats (as my scholar and summoner have both dinged 31) - if you're looking to focus Scholar and don't care too much about a sub-optimal summoner, is MIND actually the best option? We're classed as a Piety class on the group finder (the class bonus you give), and i've seen some guides advocating Piety > Mind. I've seen more saying go 30 Mind though.

Except fairies are nigh useless without a way to choose what they auto-cast and what they don't. They immediately waste the AoE regen the second you tell them to cast anything, making micromanagement impossible. Either they cast everything automatically, or do nothing. There is NO way to have them cast only the things you want.
Also, that's what Cleric Stance is for: instant-swap int and mind with 10% damage boost. Not swapping DPS stats from int to mind when switching to a healer job is just... lazy? Or a huge oversight. Either way I can't continue to play and enjoy leveling the class until they fix these issues, especially the faerie thing.
If you play Scholar most of the time, put all stats in MND.
If you play Summoner most of the time, put all stats in INT.
If you play a mix of Scholar and Summoner, put stats 50/50 into MND/INT.
Does anyone have any resources this information is being pulled from or is this speculation. i would be interested in seeing where this info is coming from. it seems unlikely that you would gimped for switching. from what i've heard each does have it's own stat allocation.
Just wanted to point out that when you equip the Scholar gem you gain a decent chunk of stats. I go from 193 Mind/202 Piety too 274 Mind/242 Piety just from equipping the gem without any gear by a Grimoir on.
Ah probly should mention that's going from Arcanist - scholar.
