I used to play a minstrel back in the good old, bad old days, before the Minnie was revamped and when we still had Ballads that actually did things rather than just be building blocks for other skills. I have been thinking about giving the Minnie another try and starting a new one, but am rather put off by the fact that I never see any minstrels around anymore. Not only that, but when I asked my Kin about them, no-one could help me with advice as there is not a single Minstrel in the Kin, but there are over 50 Rune Keepers. So what gives? Are Minstrels not worth playing anymore, are they not able to compete or something?
