Default Questions for the Bard folk.

Does swarming make you sweat or uncomfortable or is it just me? I noticed that my feet got sweaty and cold while kiting. I do more of a jousting style than one constant circle and every time I turn back into the mob I get pretty tense. Also the feeling of dying mid swarm or around 20% mob health feels soooo bad. I am only level 23 so hopefully it gets better as I improve my kiting.

I use drive by method. Btw when you get to burning woods the buzzing sounds of bee swarms really makea the butt cheeks clench.

The drive by method seems so clunky to me. Is there any benefit to it? With circle strafing I can twist my 3 songs and change instruments to boot.

You should be able to do all of that either way. Its just the pattern you get yourself used to.

I wouldn't see it as a problem.. enjoy that the thrill feels so real to your brain that it actually affects your body. Isn't that why we play videogames? :-)

How fast is swarm kiting? And is it true you don't really need any gear (other than vendor instruments)? Thinking of making a bard alt since I have never played one, but don't have a lot to spend on gear. There are some nice guides on P99 wiki but sometimes they seem a little dated!

I'm learning, but if you're swarming then you don't want to be hit. It is likely death if you are hit. The damage all comes from timing your songs properly, and staying just out of reach of the mobs. Naked with instruments, maxed skilled in the instruments and practice. That might be enough.
