I get the image of a mailman named Bill in my head. Itís weird though, since Bill wears a knuckle that covers his right arm completely and he hits people with it...
said in the opening of the Assist chapter, Bpís are by far the most self-sufficient class out of all of them. Because of your ability to buff yourself, you can have a leecher and just destroy things in your path by yourself. This continues all the way to... well, forever. Thereíll never be a time when you absolutely need a support character behind you. Of course itís better if you have an Rm with you, but unlike other classes, you donít depend on Rm assistance.
This may seem great, but all in all, a Bpís damage input will pale in comparison to others past lvl 90. Till then, itís on-par with a Yo-Yo Jesterís. Unlike the Rmís, Bpís have a strict stat & skill build, which is naturally changeable if youíre loaded with cash.
is a speedbreak for Bpís. Well, 63 is, but you get that extra 20 from maxed Cannonball. You can go for lower Sta if you feel confident, and you even get a skill which stuns enemies at a certain probability. I recommend following this exact skill build, put enough points in prequisite skills to unlock the max-able skills: Max Heap Up --> max Haste --> max Beef up --> max Accuracy --> max Cannonball --> max Mentalsign --> 19 points in Stonehand --> max Asmodeus (Bp skill) --> max Quickstep --> max Cats Reflex --> max Prevention --> max Patience.
Those are the only skills/buffs you'll ever need, since Assists nor Bp's use attack skills. You can do whatever you want with the points you get later on.
