Bryan was a very good BP back when I played in Ares. assuming it's the same Bryan although i read he plays in Olympia?
To Rialix: You can't say BPs are fucked. The thing that fucked up STR BPs in CZ was krowaz armor and in new servers the inexistence of rare weapon defense armor. now other classes have too high HP and AC compared to how it was say 4 years ago. So unless a BP is uber geared with +10 armor, +10 weapon, ROFs/ROCs +3, etc he's going to have a real tough time in CZ. Even more in the new servers.
In DCZ and RLB STR-BPs still are powerful. not so much in the new servers where there is no 25 DD caps.
Now onto INT BPs in CZ, they're one of the most usefull classes in your party provided that you got a buffer and a debuffer with you. if he's the second priest then they're not of much use. That is asuming your enemy is as strong/skilled as you.
