Classes: The Bard

Bards - the jack of all trades. Each level is a new song and a new way to play. Handy with a weapon and able to wear decent armor, bards can hold their own in a fight. Plus, the ability to twist two to three songs without using mana gives the bard a magical ability like no other class.

What are the strengths and weaknesses of the bard? Can they solo, and if so how? How should they best contribute to the group? What is the best strategy to develop your bard? What skills and songs are the most important for you to master? What equipment should you be trying to get for your bard.

Post your strategies on how to best play and develop the bard and read, rate and comment on what others have to say.

Heres the low down, if you dont know already.

Pull up the macro screen.

Name of Macro (your choice)

(type) /melody (here is the spell jem number) 1-8 (# space # space# space #)

example. /melody 5 7 3 8 1 (this will play the songs in the spell gems 5 7 3 8 1 in that order repeatedly.)

accept the set up and move the macro to your hotbuttons.

Now if you chose songs that use instruments set up you Bandoleers. (B or shift B will bring up the bandoleer window)

In your primary have a weapon. In the secondary put an insturment. Name the Bandoleer after the instrument. click add and move to hot buttons.

do this for as many bandoleer slots you wish to use.

Now when you play the melody all you have to do is hit the hotbutton for the bandoleer instrument congurient with the song in the melody. do this in the last 1/5 bar of the current song in the melody and you will maximise the song effect without useing up all the time with one wep and instruent.

If you dont understand this, i think you'll figure it all out in 15 levels anyway.

Thanks for this information. I was trying to figure out how to build a macro to use my bard alt as a background character for my main while two-boxing but I seemed destined to playing one song at a time. You went and took all the mystery out of it and made it easy. Not sure why no one else could say it plain!
