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.

Expect to spend an houror more per point if you are way behind. They seem to go faster once you are caught up. I know once all my skills were pegged on my 67 bard, that he pegged them all again fairly quickley after hitting level 68.

On a brighter note you can gain skill while AFK. Not as easy to catch up a monk on FD, and mend, lol.

You can also sing a medley with all five types of songs going and work up all your skills at once if you have need. I tried it the other day and it worked quite nicely. Of course this will only work if you have defiant armor with the correct instrument modifiers, your epic, or other instrument mod gear.

Good luck!

Use lower level songs to cut down on fizzling. I find this to be pretty effective.
