I'd play a Bard but my family has a history of arthritis.

That being said...they do intrigue me.

It's about the only class I've never touched. The highest I've ever got a Bard was level 2 when I accidently tried out my level 2 AOE DoT song next to Freeport guards.

Mez, charm, slows, dots, mana, haste, everything depending on the group comp. Sometimes having to sit to swap out different things repeatedly on the fly depending on the situation. My favorite times as a bard are when something has happened, such as a train, so I wait for everything to get into range and AoE slow them to pull aggro and kite them so everyone in the area can pummel them in the back and clean up the mess. Can't count how many times I did this in KC. That zone is amazing. Despite the cramped areas, I'd literally pull the entire front end and everything on the bridge and swarm them all down. Often inviting melee in the entrance that were LFG and let them backstab and beat down the pack. Hands down favorite class in the game, unmated versatility.

This is how I played my bard and it is how they are meant to be played. They are play makers with so many tools in their kit.

My issue with this is your relentless I'm doing something overfills my buff bar and screws up my buff order, when really I just need you to + my atk and let me forget you're there.
hahahahahaha, guilty.

I just wish people would make bards without stupid music-related puns as names.

I wanna see a bard named "Employedperson" or "Stablefamily" or something like that.

bards are incredibly frustrating to play on current-state p99 due to the "dropped song cast" bug, where your casting bar sometimes doesn't register you singing the song, which makes keeping a consistent twist going a pain in the ass

this comes from someone who leveled a bard on both blue and green to 50+ (with lots of grouping)

It could be worse, you could be dealing with Luclin cat bards with armor tinting (you can pick anything, but everyone picks pink).

Thought I was the only one going through this.

The casting bar drops, even though it says you haven't missed a note. It's EXTREMELY annoying.

The casting bar drops, but the song still completes. You see that song icons are greyed out. I don’t think much about it anymore. The duration is known. The songs are greyed out. All is good, enough. [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]
