    The bards music is based off attack power that is 50% STR 50%DEx over all I think you get more bang for the point on dex since dex allso does melee crit and dodge.

    Thanks for reply.


    I'll do some test on Beta 5.
    I'm really excited with the Bard Soul.

    Are you sure about this ? Is bard healing power influenced by "spell power" ? I really doubt it.
    Even damage codas, are not influenced by weapon damage, just "dex" but i recall someone saying that he saw no difference on his damage output with various levels of dex.
    Neesd further testing imho.
    And regarding int influencing bard skills, i'm more than sceptical and it would be a bad news indeed since no leather gear gives a single point of int.

    It would be extremely ridiculous and stupid for every other rogue soul to base their abilities on dex (and a bit of strength), where bards would use int. Rogue gear is all dex/str/end, none of it has int on it. Having to carry around int gear for a bard role and then swap everything to rogue gear when you're in a bardless role would be grossly unfair to pack space, quest rewards, pocketbook, and player sanity.

    Int is not used by bards.
