Keep buffs up, reapply your Higanbana as close to zero as possible, Midare goes brrrrrr.

Level 60

Level 60 Opener

Use the above and read Level 52 for the rest.

Level 62

Level 70 Bana 1st Opener
Level 70 Midare 1st Opener

Reserve Midare 1st for encounters that require you to move exactly as you need to cast Higanbana with Bana 1st opener (e.g. UCoB Twintania).
