    I started off as a Warrior/blackmage/whitemage/Monk

    I've only just recently progressed my Warrior to a knight (even though any class can use any other job) since they are similar but have greater defence and can use better weapons later. Everything else I have is still the same. I do recommend having at least 1 monk, since they will be the powerhouse of your party once properly levelled up!

    Um... don't you have to change jobs to a certain type to get past some areas? I'm at the Vikings Cove where you have to enter in the dragon's mouth by using mini and unless you only use mages its pretty much impossible to beat it. Right now I have Black/Red/White/Black.

    I'm gonna post my friend code so maybe a few of us can get the Onion Knight (which needs 8 messages). [​IMG]

    Curently -

    Luneth - Monk
    Arc - Red Mage
    Refia - Warrior
    Ingus - Black Mage

    (I like to go against stereotypes)

    Soon I will have the second crystal so expect them to change.

    I have to say investing in a monk is a very good thing. At first I was like meh but it now deals 400+.

    Also I find red mages much better to have than white mages. Red mages can take much more pounding, and can use very good weapons. My red mage is equivalent to my warrior in how much damage it deals. The lack of MP is sometimes annoying but I still think great attack and great defence and worth the loss of MP.

    My settings were

    Luneth - Red Mage
    Arc - Black Mage
    Refia - White Mage
    Ingus - Monk

    Warriors just cramp my style, everyone loves tanking casters or so i thought

    Right now I'm using:

    Luneth - Red Mage
    Arc - Black Mage
    Refia - Thief
    Ingus - Monk

    Good combo so far, but I'm not that far in and probably a little over-leveled on the job side.

    I'm probably going to get flamed for saying this, but I've never been a big fan of this series, or turn-based RPG in general. For some reason, though, I'm really into this one. Maybe it's the 3D on the DS. Great game so far.

    I started as a Warrior, Red Mage, Black Mage, Monk.
    It didn't take too long to realize that the dedicated colour mages suck, so I switched the black to red for awhile.

    Then I moved on to Knight, Red Mage, Dark Knight, Monk. I tried Geomancy and Scholar with the Dark Knight position, but they suck too.

    My final config is Onion Knight, Sage, Dark Knight, Monk.
    Ninjas are unfortunately ghey as they can only deal the max damage (which my Dark Knight already does PLUS self-heals with the Blood Sword) and they're limited in equipment - unlike the DK with her Masamune+Blood Sword combo [​IMG] The Monk can't be beat - I tried him as other things and he just kicks too much arse to be anything else. The Onion Knight is interesting, to say the least. Contrary to what some other douches have stated, the Onion is quite useful as early as you can get them....However, know that they are incredibly slow to gain stats. And once I started picking up the Onion items late in the game, he went from holding his own to straight holding it down [​IMG]

    p.s. : Keep swapping your Onion back and forth to Monk while leveling to maintain a decent HP gain rate.
