Use nodes now or later

Beyond will come to GMS eventually, and that brings a 2nd 5th job skill for all of us. Is this new skill core automatically given just like our first 5th job skill, or does it need to be gained through nodes?

Should I use my nodes now for a better chance for a good core (less in the pool), or should I use them later to get the new skill?

I don't think they will give a node that will give out second 5th job skills, so save up 140 node shard to craft it yourself just in case.

The way the nodestone give out node is like this (in my opinion, chance is made up based on my experience)
85% of being a boost node, with 75% chance of it being a node for your class.
10% of being a skill node, with 50% chance of it being a node for your class or a node all class can use.
5% of special node.
So the additional of new node skills shouldn't dilute the skill node pool as you wouldn't have a gotten a node for your class or a common skill node anyways.

If you need power now, use it now, if you can wait, then wait so you have a chance of getting nodes for your second 5th job skill (the chance is small, so unless you have a large number of node to open at once, I wouldn't recommend it).

Just save however many pieces you need. I need the 2 new skills and Decent HS, so 420 nodeshards total.

@twopointonefour: You actually want to max decent HS to 25 because it gets more experience and drop rate boost as it gets leveled. And don't you want to level your 2 new skills to 25 each? Might as well save 23,100 points to craft them all to 25.

@risingrain no one said anything about maxing anything.
