I tested out a DP set+ Empelol set combo on the test server, with 12 AP for Air/Earth. It was nice, in terms of damage and shielding... but I found the costs of the spells to not work out so well. Grasses+Grasses+Woodland+Woodland worked out nicely but Sudden Chill and Bramble ended up kind of taking a back seat. The water dolls still did what I needed them to do, when they were out. The armor was nice but it didn't seem to work as nicely as my Starry Armor stacks. I still have more tinkering to do... but overall, which combo would be better? I don't really like one more than the other.
The insane grasses damage on Voodoll was interesting but I dunno... never been huge on zomg big numbers.
Outside of Voodoll, I rarely summoned with either build... unless I really needed something surrounded. Seems to almost defeat the point of the Sadi, outside of his Voodoll use.
Also, hybrid is the only way I play. :v So no pure air or pure earth suggestions.
