So we're starting our alt runs for FL normal modes, and my Elemental isn't the best geared. Currently I have a ZA/ZG main hand and the Elementium Stormshield. I'm debating on purchasing Spire of Scarlet pain (378 staff), but I also have the choice of nabbing Chelly's Sterilized Scappel (378 dagger) and sticking with my 359 shield.
Running the numbers in my head, it seems the staff would lead to more INT and SP. However, I was told by my GM that Ele is 'tied down' to one handers and shields. Honestly it seems rubbish, but seeing that we have no Ele in our main raid for me to ask... Well here I am. Is there something unknown to me that increases our viability with 1H + shields over staves?
Thanks in advance ~
