If you plan on doing your damage at a distance you may want to consider another sub-job, especially when playing mages as your TP is usually low. For those that wonder, the delay in leveling jobs is because I haven't found a steady income stream in the game, not a lack of talent (although my beast/bard spent a great deal of time re-earning XP). For this reason, it is generally best when skilling the other defensive skills to focus on evasion down gear and food.
