  1. Chorus Elder

    Couple things to add that I did not see mentioned, or missed because I am in travel mode and not paying enough attention :)

    up to 85, the group regen song is cantata line, at 86 it changes to pulse.
    all of our mana regens stack (pulse, aura, chorus, crescendo, dicho and reflexive disc)

    The Ultimate Bard Guide 85+

    This set up is great for AFK bard boxes or group content, works for any bard 85+, and usually plays continuous thru the battle. The Songs upgrade ever five levels from 85 and up for the next set.

    Spell Slots
    01 Aoe Mez
    02 Lull
    03=Storm blades(69)
    04=Arcane
    05=War March
    06=Spiteful Lyric
    07=Aria
    08=Pulse
    09=Song of Suffering
    10=Spry Sonata
    11=Chorus
    12 is separate click for your aura usually Echo Hps/Mana
    Then switch to March of Wee(52) or Requiem of the Dead(104) for the rune proc.

    Once you add the 13 th song slot your Hps/Mana echo can be moved down the row one slot to 13.

    Solo Rally Call
    Line 1: /attack off
    Line 2: /g casting Solo Rally Call
    Line 3: /alt activate 1136
    Line 4: /sit

    I set my attack off and stop song key to my space bar for both actions.

    The rest of my hotkeys are the usual bard ones like a Fade hotkey and a mez key. I also have a key that does harmony of tone and Requiem of time. Bellow and sonic displacement are on their own key as well for pulling purposes. I have a few hotkeys linked to the same key as well but nothing of too much import.

    Now my song lineups depend on what group I get placed in. Melee DPS, Caster DPS, or Tank group.

    My Melody 1 when A tune stuck in your head isn't active, is the same spell gem rotation as before:

    /stop song
    /doability 3 - Track for me
    /melody 3 4 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 (12)

    My Melody 2 When A tune stuck in your head is active
    /stop song
    /doability 3
    /alt activate 8261
    /melody 3 4 5 5 6 7 8 8 10 11 (12)

    This is a copy&paste of something very old? It has 10 minute /timers on its 3 minute cooldown stuff, and advocates a mana aura. It's ... bad. Why are there double numbers in the melodies? There's no mention at all of Insults or Dicho or Crescendo despite it claiming to be for "any bard 85+"

    People ask me why I stay away from the boards reading some of these posts reminds me why. In my head I'm like do you even Bard bro. If that offends sorry but truth sometimes does that.
