I don't have many posts, actually could of swore I had a few from a few years aog, but I have some input to the story. Reading this post reminded me of when I tried this about a year ago. I found it works well if you are at Colibri camp with 2x BRD and a handful of DRG/mage. While it may not be the ideal setup, 3x DRG can heal any member back to full HP anytime a member drops below half for as little as 5mp per DRG (/blu). I haven't tried a full party of DRG, but I do remember getting 14K/hr or so with 3xDRG BRD, and having fun while doing so. Since you can roam around the area and mob or MP depletion isn't as much of a problem, you don't have to worry as much about stacking the pulls. IIRC my Eviscerations were meager, around 300-500 with Behe/Joy, mediocre gear, min/mad, and sushi (I think it was sushi). I'm sure most BRD nowadays could blow that out of the water, and with Pianissimo the opportunity for more DD is greater if you had a mage in your party.
Would a 2x BRD 4x w/e party do better with stacking pulls and focusing on our real job of enhancing other members? Most likely. If properly equipped (much better than I was), can this be an efficient way of having a BRD who is the march/ballad wh*re contribute some worthwhile damage? I'd like to think so. Is this a fun setup that breaks the monotony of BRD meritting? I'd say hell yes!
P.S.- If you are on Caitsith or any other server that has a Mandau BRD (Cluh), you'd be pleasantly surprised to see the potential in that, but that's kind of extremis :-P
