    Love the rogue hate, in classic yah...

    An epic rogue and then a geared rogue onward is solid dps, then once backstab mod becomes a thing they are competitive with monks. At least on parses I have seen/done

    Spoilers, you're posting in the TLP forum not the veteran's lounge Mr. Necro. So you came to the TLP forum to say who cares about TLPs? Thanks I guess.

    Alright. I'm bored at work anyways so why not. I gotta chime in here.

    As someone who has been the literal #1 player on a server (Mayong) as a class who ISN'T EVEN MENTIONED IN THE QUOTED POST

    Lol.. I gotta say, Bards are consistently under estimated.. Name another class that can cast spells, potions, clickies while running. I'll wait.

    Do you know how broken this mechanic is? Of course not, the majority of EQ players are pretty lazy, lets be honest. We like one person to bring our mobs to us we don't even like to dungeon crawl. (A lot of people hate LDoN)

    The majority of bards are boxes, afk /follow melody bots.

    Lets talk about some facts (yes it changes from expansion to expansion but in general):

    1. Bards are the fastest moving class BY FAR. Meaning (gonna get some hate for this one) they are better pullers than monks. I have never been out pulled by a monk, period. Argue this as much as you want.

    2. Bards can do more DPS than any other class. (Wait WTF Vetis? Tall Tales much m8?) Lets recall that bards used to kill entire zones with PBAoE dots. (Okay Vetis that was nerfed, they can't do that anymore.) Too true. But have you heard of charm swarm kiting? Round up 9 mobs, charm one, send into the fray, it gets knocked down in 1-10% in a matter of seconds, instant click invis (goblin gazughi ring for example) instant charm break, charm another mob, send it on the 1-10% mob rinse repeat.

    3. Broken mechanics such as being able to make mobs GATE. (Song of Highsun)

    4. Lets talk about enchanters, why are they the best class in the game. They can charm and they can CC. What can bards do? ....Yeah okay okay, not to the same level. But hey lets say we pull 4 mobs, charm one, send the charmed mob on the MA's target, CC the other two.... Badass? Yep.

    5. Mana regen that stacks with clarity... hp regen that stacks with chloro... Over haste... the best resists in the game BY FAR.

    Infinite single mob CC (manaless), infinite invis (manaless). The list goes on... and on... and on..

    I'll end with this.

    Sorry the bards you have played with are either melody bots or lazy. I welcome anyone to come group with me on Aradune (Bard is named Cronos). I have no doubt I will change your mind about where a bard falls in the tier lists you all have put together.

    Anyways, rant over. xD This was fun.

    Stopped reading when you claimed to be "the literal #1 player" on a server. Guessing the rest is just as much nonsense

    I don't think that invalidates his opinion. Someone's gotta be #1. On Mayong, especially early on, it was pretty easy to objectively make that claim. There wasn't much competition. For a while I was literally either the #1 or #2 player on Mayong. How do I know? There were only two of us flagged for Korafax for about a week at the start, and before anyone else showed up I had farmed a full set of gear.

    None of that makes me or the other guy an expert on TLP class balance, but he does make some valid points about bards. They are underrated.

    Who were you on Mayong? The only people who paced my group was Damon, Exzile, Goose and their group. We were definitely the first two groups in Korafax.

    Rogues are dumpy in classic and get better with each expansion till OOW then we start declining again, and from what I can tell, it never gets better then it is during the level 70 time.

    Also forgot to add... for grouping... have raid gear then literally group with any combination of classes that includes heals. Most of the dps can tank, a shaman can easily heal a raid geared tank etc. It's dumb to worry about what classes you bring to a group.
