No seriously what do you guys do? Juggle the jobs around between the characters a lot?

I'm playing through this for the first time and just got the second batch of jobs and I'm already overwhelmed. @_@ I really don't know how someone is supposed to do this. xD

You don't have to use all of them though. Just use the jobs/combos that interest you. Most any combination can beat the game. (Though some are much easier than others!)

Just stick to what you think is the best. FFV is pretty open. There is no wrong way to utilize the jobs. Of course now that I said that someone is going to say otherwise.

Just only use the ones that you like the sprites for. Duh.

Movers. End of game. Complete jobs you didn't want to before. Fragmented sentences. 100ABP. Real easy.

Normally what I do is make a very FF1-esque team with the first set of jobs, and then when I've either mastered a job or have the abilities I most like, I switch them to another job which would benefit from the abilities I got from the previous one, or just kind of "fits" somehow. For example, giving a former White Mage the Time Mage job so that they'll have all of the buffing of the Time Mage and all the healing of the White Mage! Sometimes I do things like give a Knight or other sword-user white magic since it makes me think of paladins, too. :P Plus there's things like giving the Sword-Magic guy dual-wielding of the Ninja.

Stuff like that. =)

There's no wrong way to do it, except for one: DO NOT stick with a job until you master it before moving on. Diversify, grow your skill set. You can't really know when to "stop" with a given job unless you refer to a guide.

The three most important abilities in the game are Barefist (Monk), Throw (Ninja) and SShot/Rapid Fire (Hunter).

You're forgetting Dual Wield (Ninja). Really, what abilities are important differ, depending on what kind of character you're trying to build. Throw, for example, is better for those w/ higher magic.

Barefist is the most important ability by far. No mater what job you are using, or how much it sucks you can throw Barefist on and have them contribute something.

The great thing about Barefist is that it makes all physical attacks better, even weapon attacks. I think it's strength +30 or something ridiculous.

Likewise, I think equipping !black also raises your magic power, but I might be wrong.

I didn't know this either. If it's true, it's probably strength +26, because the descriptor is "gain same attack power as monk" and that's the stat boost for being one.

I think you're right, gloria. In fact, when you master the Monk class, you get the barehanded & +26 strength automatically w/ the freelancer & mime classes (as well as counter). Monk's have the highest strength of any class & when you master a class, the highest stats are inherited (this is why you should try to master all the classes, then go back to bare or be a mime [for magic users]).

I did not know Barehanded granted a Monk's Strength O.o
I did know that some menu commands (notably !Black and I think !White) grant the original class's Magic, so I guess it's only natural.

But yeah, mastering the Monk immediatly gets your Freelancer's Strength and Vitality as high as it can be, and mastering Thief does the same to his Speed. At that point Freelancer is just stupidly powerful, especially once you get to mastering other classes as well.
