I'm a returning player after a 2+ year layoff. I decided to start playing my Bst again and I need some suggestions on what job point categories I should do next. Right now I'm 16/20 on Ready effect and I have a few points on Familiar Effect, Unleash Effect, Pet Acc, Pet attack speed, and Spur effect.

This list from a couple years ago still feels relatively accurate. If you're having any trouble with survivability, bump up the Reward priority at your discretion.

CategoryRankBenefits when 20/20
Ready Effect1Ready DMG+20%
Familiar Effect2Pet:STR/DEX/AGI/VIT/MND/INT/CHR+60
Pet Accuracy Bonus3Pet:Accuracy+20
Unleash Effect4Ready DMG+40% during Unleash
Spur Effect5Pet:Attack+60 during Spur
Run Wild Duration6Run Wild duration extended to 5min40sec
Reward Effect7Reward+20% (exceeds Reward% cap, stacks additively)
Pet Attack Speed8Pet:Haste+20% (not counted as gear Haste)
Pet Enmity9Pet:Enmity+20
Charm Success Rate10Charm Success+20%


You're basically on the right track, boosting all of the DPS-related categories as soon as possible. Good luck with the grind.

Wouldn't Pet:Haste go up a couple of ranks? I mean, while white damage isn't what pets are there for, it's still useful for building TP between charges, right?

As far as building TP is concerned, this category would only be useful in a practical sense if:

a) Your charge timers are 20+ seconds each
and/or
b) You have an Aymur.

Regarding white damage, you're right that it's probably more valuable to have some haste versus a nominal amount of enmity.
