I was thinking the same thing as you. I dont see why it is so bad, From what i gathered, BST/BRD can solo rather well through the whole game, and sence this game was designed to be a group game, it is looked down apon in it. I hve gotten a lot of @#$& from other ppl when we talk about what ADV jobs we want and i tell them i want to be a BST/BRD. I just say sorry i want to solo, i like doing that. I play for fun, and thats all that matters.
