Been playing WHM since launch and though I enjoy the class, it's starting to feel too... "Standard", if you will. I need something different so I'd like to try SCH. I'd like to know people's feelings about the two classes.

No reason you can't play both... they have virtually the same gear other than weapon.

Wow. Evenly split, huh. This makes me even more curious about the job.

I play White Mage and honestly, as much as I love the abilities and whatever, a BIG reason I like it better than Scholar is the specific equipment.

The White Mage Myth boots are adorable. I love them so much

The question is, how many people who have both at 50 answered this poll?

Im a scholar main but have also played whm quite a bit I find both really fun to use but I have to give it to the scholar for me, its the job I keep going back to :) I do find myself missing the big aoe heals of whm but If I went to whm id miss the lustrates, the sheilds, the fairy and the ability to dps a lot easier so yeah! :)

I find SCH more fun, but as my mana pool's increased I'm finding WHM almost as entertaining.

On the whole I like scholar better. I have both at 50 and I've done some endgame fights on both, and they both have strengths and weaknesses. I find scholar more fun because I feel like there's a bit more thinking and planning involved. You manage your resources and try and mitigate big hits whereas white Mage healing is really just a war of attrition. All that being said, having both is the way to go so you can be an asset to any party. Most 8 man content benefits from having one of each. Although if you have to double up I think two WHMs are better than two SCHs.
