Is there any grouping at all? I don't mind a grind as long as it's not solo.

    The only grouping is grind at 60+ in Kama killing tree mobs, or gyffin temple - usually done in groups of 3 members - since if done right that is the most efficient XP at that level. But you have to be in the 240ap+ bracket to make this work.

    But there is no proper PvE grouping mostly because all 18 classes in BDO are pretty much DPS, there is no proper healer so it's all just spamming dps as fast as possible

    Also the fact that best gear in game is identical for every class - and it's all about stacking as much AP as possible. 

    There are no DP builds at all nor evasion builds anymore because for some reason Pearl Abyss decided to make anything other than AP stacking pure trash.

    The amount of basic design issues with BDO is really mind boggling - amazing world, great animations, really good action combat, diversity of non combat activities...

    But then adding the dumbest design decisions like

    All classes dps
    All classes have the same best in slot gear
    Dumbest RNG gear upgrade system yet
    /faceroll PvE
    Everything leads to cash shop
    Only 5 classes viable in PvP

    It's almost manging to make the most delicious meal in the world but then before serving it deciding to top it off with cat turds.

    Just like WTF where they thinking?

    Kano explained it pretty well.
    You can group for guild bosses and scrolls as well, and a handful of other things. But for the most part you'll definitely be soloing. It's not like WoW, SWTOR, FFXIV or other games where on most days you'll be doing group content.

    My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)

    There is some grouping in the harder portions of the game, and to kill whales and such on boats.  There are also going to be quite a few more group monsters coming soon when the next area is released. 

    While it is a mostly soloable game, if you want to group there are reasons to do it, and it doesn't generally hurt you in many places where most players are soloing.
