How is it as a class? I've been kinda curious!

Surprising amounts of utility in a rather 'meh' package. They're useful, just a lot of things are outright better.

AoE sleep is pretty devastating. Threaten hurts too. Invite totally turns around a near impossible fight.

They're good if you need a faith or bravery boost, too, along with the above poster said

The female is drop-dead pretty, and they use guns?

They're great to mess around with. I actually did a Orator only playthrough. Just Ramza and 4 Orators. Was a blast. Most battles boiled down to inviting the either inviting the entire enemy team, or mass sleeping them and picking them off one at a time. Plus once guns become available in Chapter 2 you can just pick off everything from across the field. Besides that though I usually make Ladd into one, since I like to keep one around, and I wouldn't use him otherwise.

Orater= monster tamer at least for me thats about all I use them for. They do have some handy abilities but they don't really offer much for fun overall imo.

Consider them your "tweaker" class. They can tweak anything, from the Brave and Faith of units to the outcome of a battle.
At about 5000JP to master, do it and put Talk Skill on a mage. The basic stats of Orators are very mediocre, but their skills are invaluable.
