Haha, yup. That's about right.

I have very mixed feelings about this dungeon. It can be very annoying but it's a lot of fun when done with competent players.

True, And really, just one player not paying attention for a few seconds can mess up the whole thing. I realize that I must gain some levels before reattempting. I am thinking 3-4 levels higher with better gear I will be able to nuke those staves in 2 hits versus 3-4. I also have to set up reservations in my household so that no one talks to me for 90 minutes while I am running this again.

Smiley: lol

"Hey look peeps, I'm going to be playing this game here *point to game* and for the next 90min I need you to pretend I'm not "here." The only way you bother me is if [insert something/someone huge here] is at the door, or lava is spewing out in the front yard. KKTHXBIE"

I've done this place many times and as a SCH. I'm not sure why I still read that SCH can't heal anything or as well as a WHM when they can on other thread and forums. Every time I do this I tell everyone, ignore the boss and fight the adds. No one listens to me then we whip. When they do, we win. Is as simple as that to be honest. Last night my group could not get past the first boss. They didn't focus the bees and got one shoted. Then they could not mult-task kills bees and run to the glowing floor square to cleanse Doom. I watched and spammed YOU HAVE DOOM, while I was healing and marking bees at the same time. Oh and on the finally boss you need to kill the faces on the squares of the come back to life and you will have a room full of them.

Just to be clear, I beat this one with 5 minutes left on the timer the first time.

I'm sure that SCH does just fine. I'm thinking that it was player skill related. Killing those bees while running to the squares is essential. And good point about the faces. I did not know that.

i thought the final boss of sunken was really easy, the golem on the other hand... his jump attack hits everyone no matter how far you are and it had a bad habit of stunning our WHM and then doing that jump which added only more pressure to it

i also died first time to the doom boss, i had no idea i had to step on the plates to get rid of it

It made me really happy that I leveled ACN to 15 so I had my own personal black mage cure spell. I picked myself up to take pressure off the healer after that aoe jump.

Maybe I just had bad luck with the final boss or the system broke down somewhere with the tank and other close range DD. I can't tell.

How hard is titan vs that golem mini boss? I pretty much solo Titan for 5 mins straight after WHM died as WAR. WAR is imba :O

Tl;dr

However, thus far Sunken Temple is the best dungeon in this entire game. It actually requires skill from each member, actually has good mechanics, an is actually difficult. Every dungeon before and thus far, after, have paled in comparison.

Scholar/White Mage difference here is negligible, as the player is way more important than the class.

That being said, I went in with 3 others in my FC, so we actually did a custom group instead (WAR/LNC/WHM/SCH). I went SCH because I wanted to play with the spell haste from the support Fairy for once.

The bees/hornets/whatever do FINAL STING...that is why they need to die ASAP. (For those who actually aren't familiar with the effect, it's a suicidal hit-you-for-massive-amounts-of-damage attack that's pretty guaranteed to kill whoever it hits.)

The only real difficulty for Scholar over White Mage is if the Scholar did not go do his/her job quest for Succor first. You really want AE heals on the last boss. Otherwise, I'd say the Scholar actually has an easier time because of Aetherflow, Energy Drain, the Fairy and the capability of tossing more effective DoTs when things are more slow. I know Regen's supposed to be crazy strong, but Scholar's got more effective MP recovery options.
