The Troubadour is quite frail and should be put in the back rows. Its only use is to make the Luminary and then a Druid. It takes some time to make a Druid and 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.
