Yes, it is especially helpful in a solo or duo setting where you aren't playing a pure DD role.

Mefistofele. Yay! Charming Ochus and Goobues dead scorps and dragons.

I've been taking a break for a couple of months but most likely will be coming back. BST is amazing on this server and is very fun. Especially with them working on the BCNMs coming back I feel they will have a good place.

If this was a different era. I'd play Dancer, but other than that my main Jobs here are BST/WHM/NIN/RDM/BLM/THF/BLU

Thank you, a couple of question:

- will they still want me in a exp party or I will be ostracized because I am BST?
- I will be using some online guides, what doest not work respect to retail? (at least for the low levels 1-50)

Thanks ^^

So BST Parties are def still a thing.
You can still get in Exp parties pretty easy, especially if they need a puller. Do try and get NIN for increased DMG in melee.
Jug Pets are extremely helpful for not being useless.
If you are Elvann always have Sushi for Acc as you will miss pretty much everything.

Buy an Axe every 10 levels to keep up with dmg. (Look at the start of this post for Gear info for char stuff)

I know Nasomi changed something about forced Level Cap zones. I haven't played since then so I don't know if that is still a great area for BSTs.

Join a BST shell it will help with alot.

So I have updated the 70-75 pre-endgame Melee gear. So most of this is going to be stuff you can either Buy/Solo

Nothing from Dynamis, sky, or sea unless it is soloable.

Minor nitpick but the Peacock Amulet is from BCNM 40. Charm is from Argus.

Someone in my LS said they got the Charm from BCNM40 (And we specifically asked if it was Amulet or Charm because I thought the same thing).

This could have been closer to when BCNM40 was just reintroduced and Nas might have just overlooked it briefly, but I will double check and update.

Be prepared to make your own parties if you want to play BST in a standard XP party. We're pretty much the last choice to invite to a party and are probably only going to be picked up if there is nothing else or if you're the right level to be sync. I have all of my subs leveled and while most parties seem to want /NIN, I think /WAR is much better DPS and will tend to choose that sub unless asked otherwise.

For food, skip the sushi and go with Akamochi, it helps your pet too!

Outside of standard XP parties, you can definitely get BST or BST/SMN parties going pretty often. It used to be a lot more common when sync range was wider, but they still happen. I'm usually up for one if I have time.
