    That's 15 secs every 2-3 battles. Not to mention that he has to cast the drinks in the first place. That's adds up to a lot of time in the long run.

    still, you have downtime with fighters, when hp is low, when you don't have a priest in your party, you'll have to eat after 1 or 2 battles, just like us drinking.

    Actually no. Chars that are strength base regenerate their health really fast. I hardly have to heal myself at all after a battle because I'm regenerating at almost 100 health per sec. I only heal myself when life is less than half because by the time I reach the next mob, my health would be almost full. Rogues don't have to worry about their health too much either since they do so much dmg and kill so fast. Also they stun and all they do is spam Sinister Strike. Only class that have a lot of downtime are those that are mana dependent. When I joined up in a group with my mage, I had to sit down every once in a while to drink (you can ask Jake about this cause he does it a lot too) while the others go on ahead and kill the next mob.

    I hate it when I am the main damage dealer in a group and they don't appreciate the amount of damage I do. We are kicking ass, then I have to rest to get mana. The rest of them are filled with overconfidence because we have been doing so well, so they go on to take on mobs while I rest only to get themselves killed.

    Even if I am not the main damage damage dealer, overconfidence in general is what kills groups in instances. You have to take it slow and plan stuff out.

    All melee fighter classes you should learn first aid. It makes downtime negligible.

    Fishing is lame and cooking is redundant.

    With cooking you can make food that also gives buffs.

    My cooking is at 1 for both my chars. Never bothered to lvl it up even with the buffs that it provides. I don't even fish with my pally even though I should since you can get some decent stuff with fishing. Pally hardly have any downtime except to recharge mana after a big fight. I hardly use my mana during a fight and when I do it recharge back really fast.

    Actually I agree. Both of these skills are really low on my guy, figured I would work on it when I hit 60 and dont have much else to do.

    cooking is an easy way to make some good money. you get the meat stuff off mobs, then the other stuff is fairly cheap and sells for a good amount of money.

    all secondary jobs relaly sucks ass, well maybe not first aid, but I'd rather keep the stuffs for tailoring. besides, priests don't really need first aid... all mana dependant char don't need first aid cause they have to sit down and drink anyway, so might as well eat.

    Cooking is pretty deceiving, haven't seen anything else than stamina and spirit buff.

    fishing: well I guess that's just to lvl up your cooking by cooking raw fish, nothing really interesting there... it's not like any jobs supports the primary ones.
