Default Trying to level a bard to 60 solo without swarming. What twink gear am I missing?

My setup currently includes: Seahorse belt for haste, Fungi, Swiftblade of Zek & Blade of Carnage. I also bought a Lute of the Howler for the 40% haste buff. Most slots are also filled with big twink items. Is there a clicky or twink item I may not be thinking of?

Are you also avoiding charming? If not get a Gobling Gazughi Ring. Maybe obvious, but I also suggest JBoots and Peggy cloak even for bards.

the fastest xp soloing a bard outside of swarming is charming. Since charm doesn't build agro, you can ping-pong charm mobs and they'll beat each other down. Charm mob 1, attack mob 2. When charm breaks on 1, charm 2 and attack 1. Repeat the process. Toss in some dots to speed it up, and use snares/fears as necessary to balance the damage between the two.

Or you can fear kite with snare. Maybe grab a rogue or necro to speed that up. But it's incredibly boring and monotonous.

Fungi face tanking will take you a decent way, but that ends pretty abruptly. Without double attack it doesn't really matter how much haste or weapons you have, your dps is still gonna be shit.

If you can afford it, get all the main hand instruments. trying to juggle instruments when you have a mix of main hand and offhand is a royal bitch.

Is the 40% haste from werewolf illusion a spell effect? so playing a bard haste song on top does not stack correct?

OP wasn't asking for RL advice.
