Re: DPS Minstrels
Did anyone even argue the point that DPS Mini's are better DPS than other classes? That doesn't preclude a DPS Mini from having fun in a group. "Non-ideal" groups (to those who are stuck in strict character rolls) are a lot of fun and are often very successful.

If you rolled a minstrel, did you really think you are going to be dps in any content that matters. Sure solo/pvp but not in instances. When i first rolled my minstrel in soa, i wanted to be a dps minstrel and i did. I soloed a bunch of things including torhammas and the other guy in forochel by using warspeech to its full potential but i understood that i would need to be healing in rift or cd.
*lots of your personal stats*
All that matters is that people are having fun. If you don't have fun DPSing in a group then don't, no need for the crusade filled with stat's (all of which I agree with, but it doesn't take into account the "fun factor") against it.
Have fun with your prefered style of play.
