that wasn’t just how much 1 level of the cook needed? I’ve never made a cook (bugs with the cook’s food and such, never got to that point as of late), but is that not because leveling once as a cook is the same as leveling 3 times as a farmer? or after leveling 3 times as a farmer, does it take as much for every other job too, i.e. it takes the same amount of xp to get a lvl 1 carpenter or hunter as a lvl 1 cook after getting 3 levels in farming
basically, I just assumed a tier 2 job (cook, shephard) would require more xp to level than a tier 1 job simply because the xp required was set differently, not that if you leveled 3 times as a farmer and then switched to another tier 1 job instead of a cook, you would require more xp than normal. or, in simpler terms, I thought the job ranked up, not the hearthling themselves leveling up, and higher tier jobs just so happened to be harder to rank.
