    Default Low level Bard video

    Just put up a video of my rogue when he was level 12. Build is Bard/Ranger/Saboteur.

    Nothing particularly interesting, running about and doing a quick rift fight but might be interesting for anybody who hasn't played yet and wants to get an idea how a low level Bard looks.

    I assume the answer is no, but can Bard songs affect players outside of a party/raid?

    Unfortunately not, they really need to implement some sort of auto raid or open raid system near rifts.

    Yea, Cadence + Power Chord = 5 point for a finisher which could be any Coda!

    When grouped or ae puling, open a fight with power cord, use the coda of distress, then use cadence and use the coda of cowardice, then PC and Cad for 5pts and AE nuke the crap out of everything. Wash and repeat. Also I suggest a ranger and sab as your other souls for the pet and additional AE powers.

    That was my soul choice also: I put points into +dex sabateur vs. ranger.

    When hitting a rift i'd grab every person that had invite available and would refresh each entry.
    The auto raid would be nice as you are completely dependent on a "raid manager" but everything happens in 3mins...

    As you arive if there is no raid manager and no 'raid'.. just a mass of people fighting.
    You should be able to right click the rift and be able to volunteer? I would all the time.

    WIthout the Raid/Group, the bard is just another pretty face.

    I managed to get to 23 on my rogue by the end of the beta weekend. Tried a load of builds over the weekend and didn't really get back to testing the Bard some more but I'm really looking forward to testing it out again during the next beta phase especially now that I have more points to spend.

    I also didn't realize how good the Bard healing really is until I rolled a Cleric for comparison. Its not suitable for being a main healer in a dungeon group due to the lack of a spammable single target heal but it sure does output a ton of aoe healing in Warfronts
