I just got the ability http://xivdb.com/?skill/100082/Observe Any idea what its purpose is? It kind of seems pointless to me.

If you aren't happy with the current Condition you can use this to wait it out.

Cool, I didn't know that was an option, thanks.

To be honest I rarely use Observe, if he item is in poor condition I'll generally complete a standard synth or re-stack Steady Hand. If the standard synth procs there is no penalty from the poor condition.

The only time I'll use observe is to gamble for a tricks of the trade (sometimes that extra 2 CP makes all the difference).

I use it when I am making base ingredients, like ingots and cloth and such, where one Careful or Basic Synthesis will finish the synth. If I fail an Excellent Touch and I haven't yet gotten the quality I want, I will use Observe to get past the Poor and not waste a Touch. Steady Hand is not a bad option, it just depends on what you have left in your CP pool.
