With the recent nerf to VS and the upcoming changes to fade. There definitely needs to be some changes in order for the Bard class to not just be a #melodybot. Here are some ideas or suggestions that may help suffice those changes. Bards are a support class and we just make everyone better except ourselves. We are the lowest out of the melee class. SK's can outparse us yet we can't tank worth anything even as plate wearers. Our disc hasn't been updated in what seems to be a millennium, still using a lvl 69 disc. I bet rogues can also chime in on that as well on updated discs but that's a different story. 1) Breather - Bellows, VS, Dissident requires endurance. We have never gotten any type of endurance regen except for self rally. But how useful is it when you need to be out of combat and below 30%. 2) Meditation - Increase meditation skill past (1). My mana pool is 250k without any buffs. So with the new changes to fade (12% of maximum mana to activate). It will cost me at least 30k mana to fade without any buffs. Fade, synergy, alliance requires mana to use. 3) Jonthan's Mightful Caretaker - Make that a AA self only like the song. 4) Amplication - Make that an innate AA. 5) Thousand Blades - Lvl 69 disc. Definitely needs an update. 6) Selos - Improved ranks. No mount or anyone should be faster than selos. 7) Twinsong - Improved ranks. Currently only at 5%. 8) Lasping Lullaby - Make an AE blur song. Lasping lullaby single target has a rare % to blur and with the bard mez not lasting more than 36s. Take for example 3 mobs mezzed. Takes a few casts to blur 1 target. By the time you have 2nd mob blurred, the mez on the 3rd mob will start to wear off & you need to remez. Once you remez, the 2 blurred mobs are back on aggro. Lets not make Bards obselete!
