    I guess that entry needs some more work then. I don't know the specific recipes, but you probably still need the cooking skill to make jugs even if you're doing it through Synergy.

    You're literally sitting there hitting "Enter, Feed Earth Fewell, Enter" "Oh, it blew up, reselect it. Feed Earth Fewell" and just spamming it until you cap. It's the most boring thing I've ever done. At least crafting has some breaks where you go and gather materials.

    Edit:
    I understand shooing newbies from crafting in general, but the entry reads that synergy is not worth doing period. I planned on using it for BST jugs since the main reason I was going to level Cooking was jugs..and Synergy is likely much cheaper to cap than Cooking.
    You still need cooking skill to do jugs with Synergy.

    I just got done getting to synergy to 70 and I totally agree w/the boring aspect. I'd just set a goal to do 5 levels per session. It took around 10 days or so as I don't really play that much. While it's subjective if it's "worth it", I think so since I can do my own augments and I've easily made back the cost of leveling it from breaking down abjurations I've got from farming sky for items and money.

    Is there a thread/post somewhere that lists what each job "does" nowadays? Like I have 76pld but it sounds like pld has kinda become lolpld (I never got to really do a lot with it anyways). Mainly looking at which melee class to go with, not sure I want to go back to my blm...

    Welp I'm retarded. Didn't realize you still needed cooking for jugs. Either way, for the effort involved and the cost..its nice to level as a side thing every now and then. I'll probably still do it.

    Don't let it put you off of Synergy completely. It is something that I am doing slowly when I have the time. But there are a lot of things that are of a much, much higher priority than it. (But my Galley Kitchen looks awesome.)

    Um...

    WAR: Smash stuff, red procs in abyssea
    MNK: smash stuff, tank in lowman abyssea stuff, blue procs at night (any fight you want blue procs for it's best to go @ 22:00-06:00 for blunt time, cover everything with MNK + WHM)
    THF: TH whore everywhere, alternative dynamis soloist
    RDM: extinct
    WHM: best healer by far now
    BLM: yellow procs @ abyssea/voidwatch, occasionally best damage in vw depending on which fight
    PLD: hold adds in voidwatch fights with adds, tank in some fights where a PLD will survive better than others without fanatics
    DRK: top-tier DD for neo-nyzul, VW also favors them heavily for DD
    BST: dynamis farming, old Odin, soloing some older content (Tiamat, Vrtra, various others)
    BRD: buffs, but not necessarily the same as before (due to SCH's embrava), light-based dispel where needed (old odin)
    RNG: procs in vw (vw more or less wants you to cover as many jobs as possible)
    SAM: top-tier DD @ neo-nyzul, good DD @ vw but falls behind DRK or WAR depending
    NIN: procs @ vw (both brd and nin yellow procs for abyssea can be done with them as subjobs), soloing various abyssea mobs
    DRG: one of the last DDs taken for vw, can be a potent DD with mythic/relic, one of the better DDs @ abyssea xp
    SMN: perfect defense, also vw procs (with pup sub smn/pup can hit procs of either pet type now pretty quickly)
    BLU: procs @ vw and abyssea (often have blu/nin to cover those 2 types of yellow proc), can hold its weight as a DD until the most high level fights, best job to solo limbus on, potent DD vs old content or anything level correction's in your favor
    COR: buffs and 2hr resets for various things (you should unlock this if you haven't, only 2hr that can make you money in town)
    PUP: much improved, can pull off some remarkable solos due to improved whm puppet AI
    DNC: alternative dynamis farming, soloing certain content, still most of its use is as a sub (most dynamis soloists go bst/dnc)
    SCH: need 2 for neo-nyzul, embrava basically replaced soul voice marches and added regain/regen to it, various content (AV, Pandemonium Warden, legion) is done with embrava+perfect defense strats

    ...not an exhaustive list

    If you are coming back, you'll probably be doing a lot of Abyssea to start out with, in which case I'd say WAR NIN or MNK if you want a melee.

    WAR and NIN both can cover almost all red proc by themselves, with WAR + NIN covering all of them. MNK not only makes a great tank, but as mentioned, can cover nearly all of Blue proc WS during blunt time - what they can't do, WHM can.

    BST or PLD or probably others, but as always the real challenge is finding it up.
    ??? but likely BST
    The 21-24hr one, can't see anything 99 losing - the sandworm one, haven't tried but due to damage reduction doubt anything can solo.
    Khimaira, dnc/nin nin/dnc pld/dnc bst can all very likely solo

    Planning on making my triumphant return soon, but going to reroll instead of picking up where I left off. It seems much funner that way, that and I forgot my password so fuck it. Bismarck, I'll be comin' to chill pretty soon, just as long as there's room for a nigga.
