    > Will I get penalized if I do my job advancement at a later level?

    Short Answer: No. You're going to be totally fine.
    For many reasons players may choose to complete their job advancement at a later level. The most common reasons are:
    • They are currently weak, and want to do the advancement challenge when they are stronger.
    • They are leeching, and don't want to leave the session, or MP or don't want to travel there and back to their map again.
    • They forgot, and leveled up by accident.
    In most cases, there’s very little reason to worry about a late job advancement. As long as you…
    • …don’t mind waiting to use new skills.
    • …don’t spend your extra SP
    • …or wouldn’t have used the AP for INT
    …then there’s minimal penalty for late job advancement.

    Skill Points

    If you’re planning to do a late job advancement, don’t spend your Skill Points on skills of the previous job. For example: Let’s say we want to do our second job advancement at level 35. We’ll still gain 3 SP every level from 30 to 35, however we must be careful to NOT spend this SP on second job skills.

    1st Job Advancement - Level 10 or 8 (mage)

    After level 10 (or 8 for mages), don’t use any new SP until you’ve completed your job advancement.

    You should advance no later than level 14, as that's the latest you can advance to 1st job without losing SP.

    You must advance before level 30. Once you reach level 30 as a beginner, you become "perma beginner" and will no longer be able to do the 1st job advancement. You can thank fartsyfartsy for this.

    You may lose HP as a warrior if you do your 1st job advancement late. This is because as early as level 11, warriors can have points in their Improve Max HP Skill. This gives them a bonus to their HP gain upon Level Up.

    You may lose MP as a mage if you do your 1st job advancement late. This is because as early as level 9, warriors can have points in their Improve Max MP Skill. This gives them a bonus to their MP gain upon Level Up.

    Each class has a different formula for how much HP/HP they get during Level Ups, and how much HP/MP they get from Fresh and Stale Washing. Doing your job advancement late, means more levels using the beginner formulas, instead of the class's formula. It's worth noting, but in practice incredibly minor.

    Most notably, warriors and pirates gain more HP per level, while mages gain more MP per level than a beginner of the same level would.

    2nd Job Advancement - Level 30

    After level 30, don’t use any new SP until you’ve completed your job advancement.

    You may lose HP as a buccaneer if you do your 2nd job advancement late. This is because as early as level 31, brawlers can have points in their Improve Max HP Skill. This gives them a bonus to their HP gain upon Level Up.

    3rd Job Advancement - Level 70

    After level 70, don’t use any new SP until you’ve completed your job advancement.

    You'll get 5 AP when you complete your 4th job advancement. It's minor, that’s 5 points that you might otherwise have had in INT when leveling up.

    4th Job Advancement - Level 120

    After level 120, don’t use any new SP until you’ve completed your job advancement.

    You'll get 5 AP when you complete your 4th job advancement. It's minor, that’s 5 points that you might otherwise have had in INT when leveling up.

    That's all. You're gonna be fine.

    I've seen this question come up in the #questions channel of the Discord quite a few times. The worry of permanently messing up a character is intimidating, so I wanted to share this to help.

    What happens if you spend your new SP on 1st job skills after level 30 before you've completed your 2nd job advancement?

    Then you don't get to spend those points on second job skills once they're unlocked :)

    True! There are a few classes where you may wish to spend skill points on a previous jobs skill. Albeit, most of these cases it's the last few skill points of a given job that get invested to max an earlier skill.

    Related to this post... How do I complete the job advancements, if I have no damage? Often, all you need is an Amorian basket and patience, but here's some quotes from my past experiences:

    Doing the second job advancement on an archer:
    Doing the second job advancement on a rogue:
    Doing the third job advancement on an assassin:
