This was losely discussed in other threads, but I wanteed to get a better idea before investing any money... I am an 18 Bard very quickly on my way to becoming a Dirge, but I wasn't sure if I should upgrade any of the mid teen Bard spells I have. I upgraded what I could to App3 during my artisan training before becomming a craftsman (ie: quick strike, ensnare, sneak, pathfinding, etc...) I was thinking about upping Piercing Shriek to at least Adept I, becuase it is one of the main damage spells I use when soloing, but otherwise, I wasn't sure if any of the other songs I have are worth investing the money in. I thought about Walt's Singing Blade and Merciless Melodies, but otherwise am pretty clueless. I would appriciate any advice anyone has. I'm sure the majority of my problems come from a lack of deeper understanding of the game such as proper soloing/grouping techniques, but I just thought I'd ask.
