So what would be the point of this other than soloing at times?
Bard's Justaucorps is by far the best body armor for BRD melee, solo or in party. There's not a lot of call for BRD melee, but if you find yourself meleeing, this is the armor for it. I sometimes go DD BRD in a 2-BRD TP burn party, and am happy to have this armor. --Valyana 04:16, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
