Re: In case you still think Fulm Prism sucks...

Well it's tedious even for battle magic which is saying something. I think a lot of people skip it because battle sphere and dart annihilate things and are less noisy, not quite as tedious, and uses hexes. But since I usually go sif as a Cj I memorize it for packs of enemies and ditch it later.
