Not if they don't have enhancing skilled up, then it's pretty useless.

According to the White Mage forums it adds 40+(Enhancing skill/5) to the resistance, and the base 40 is still better then the equipment you can get in the dunes. Yes its better to have it higher, i usually try to keep enhancing capped, but some is still better then none.

It not only helps, but is incredibly useful at lower levels and essential at high levels.

EDIT:
Not only that, but other skills can be defended against using bar-spells as well. The Bubble Shower skill used by crabs is a classic example of that. If you want a good listing of skills and what bar-spells work against them, check out the listing on Mystery Tour at http://mysterytour.web.infoseek.co.jp/ffxi/us/monster1/000mobinfo.htm . I don't know whether or not this is completely reliable, but it's worth a shot.

Cast time is 0.5, not 6.
