The Troubadour is quite frail and should be put in the back rows. Its only use is to make the Luminary (Vocation) and then a Druid. It takes some time to make a druid and so has to be started as soon the player clears Alltrades Abbey. However, the rewards are great.
The hybrid skills aren't particularly worth getting as there are similar skills that do the same thing.
In IX, the Hero/Heroine always begins the game as this class. It has limited healing and damaging spells on top of the ability to wield fans, swords, whips, and shields.. Minstrel is a fairly balanced class, partly because all of a minstrel's stats improve each level, whereas only some of the other classes' stats improve on each level-up. Their Coup-de-Grace is "Rough N' Tumble," which increases evasion and counterattack chances.
