The Leading FFXIV Gil Seller - Uffxiv.com!

My healing partner really doesn't affect things; I'll stick with Nocturnal in A4 whether I'm paired with a White Mage, a Scholar, or another Astrologian in either Sect

FFXIV Astrologian skills: Diurnal Sect & Nocturnal Sect

I use Nocturnal Sect in A4 Normal Mode, because running around and grabbing exploding balls and blocking lasers is the only point in any current content where (Nocturnal) Aspected Benefic's potency, effect, and cast time intersect to fill a niche that isn't filled better by some other spell/ability.Everywhere else that I use Astrologian, I use Diurnal Sect.

My healing partner really doesn't affect things; I'll stick with Nocturnal in A4 whether I'm paired with a White Mage, a Scholar, or another Astrologian in either Sect, and I'll stick with Diurnal anywhere else whether the other healer is a White Mage, Scholar, or another Astrologian in either Sect. If someone throws a fit about how an Astrologian is "supposed" to be in a certain Sect when paired with a certain other healer, I'll usually switch just to indulge them, since there really isn't much effective difference between the two stances and I'd rather not waste the party's time with an argument. (Edit: Although I should make clear, it's not that it doesn't make a difference whether you have a regen-healer and a shield-healer in the same party; it's that it doesn't make a difference whether you have a regen-healer and a shield-healer in the same party in the content that I actually use Astrologian in, which is basically just Light Party dungeons, Trial Roulettes, unsynced level 50 content, and Normal Alexander.)

 

I don't honestly think that there's much of a difference between the two, though. The only skills affected in a significant way are Aspected Benefic, Aspected Helios, and Collective Unconscious. Collective Unconscious is such garbage in either Sect that it doesn't really matter that it's a little more usable in Noct, Aspected Helios is fine in either Sect since it mimics Medica II and Succor approximately equally well, and Aspected Benefic is just a choice between a general-purpose heal that doesn't do its job particularly well, and a situational/niche heal that doesn't do its job particularly well.

 

What makes the difference for me is solely that the 5% speed boost in Diurnal is a "fun" bonus, and the 5% healing power boost in Nocturnal is a "boring" FFXIV Gil, even though neither is particularly significant and they're roughly equally useful.
