>2. I am wondering have you done any BCNM's as rdm and would you say they are a good choice for it? BCnm 40 mainly but info about 50,60, BCNM's (if you have done them of course) would be useful also. In-game I am mainly told that rdm is not part of an ideal party setup for it (rather like drk).
I've done dozens myself and a rdm is just fine. For 40, we usually act as the BRD's healer, with backup in mind. In one of the 50s we are practically essential to keep the other mobs busy since they won't sleep. In the 60 we are also near essential mostly for refresh.
BTW, whoever said DRK is not good in BCNM is a twit. DRK are very good in the BCNM, bringing in 2 interrupts (stun and weapon bash). Mostly the tanks are the unnecessary ones in the 40, but can still contribute. Really, if you want the ideal BCNM 40 party, get 6 SMN's together, and every one of them blow their 2hr and nuke the mobs into oblivion. My server had one such party do bcnm 40 in 1 minute 14 seconds.
>4. I know you have to kill Maat for the last genkai, and you said that as an elvaan (or galkan) rdm it would be impossible to win. Is this really true?
No, it isn't. In fact, look down the forum a bit and you will see one of the Maat topics has a strategy from a successful Elvaan RDM to do it. As a galkan you're going to have to blow that much more money doing it, but I would bet it is still possible, but frankly you've made your life very tough.
