HP has no relation to Acidbomb, I don't see why you'd talk about it with that.
If you don't like the damage, tailor your vit to be different? O_o
Green Potion > Poison.
And HP is very nice for RK (Frenzy), RG (Martyr's Reckoning), Sorcerers (Indulge), and Wanderer/Minstrel (More Max HP, more damage needed to end their song)
And SP is nice for Shura (Asura)
And I can't believe you didn't add any scholar skill; Indulge, Exhale, Fiberlock, and Blinding Mist to that list.
Not to mention a couple other good skills: Spear Dynamo, Frenzy, Zen, Meltdown, Ganbantein to name a few more. (I'm not sure what damage skills are very useful in renewal, with the ATK changes, and Cast Time)
Main reasons for Trans: (imo)
- Skill/Stat reset (Well, you rebuild from level 1)
- Access to Trans Skills
- 20 More skillpoints then non-trans for 2nd class (Think Monk, and Snap prereqs)
- HP/SP Increase
The extra stat points, and avoiding the stat wheel are just extras on the top to perfectly fine-tune your character.
Main Reason for Non Trans -> 3rd:
- Your rushing your character, and already want 3rd class. (Not enough playtime, don't care to grind, idk)
There's no other reason for not going trans first.
