    Default Bard question.

    if you use cadence, it works for 0-20 meters. so what weapon does it use as the weapon dmg?? i suppose i could test it by taking off weapons but i cannot right now.

    which weapons affect the bard's dmg?

    It's up in the air. A lot of testing shows melee main-hand only, though some Bards with Ranger have found that it uses your ranged weapon if you are not in melee range. Check in the Rogue forums. It has been covered a bit there in a lot of threads.

    i see. i think i understand now. ranger has a passive that lets them switch to ranged when out of melee range. so it must be the weapon that you are using effectively. now i wonder if i can set it to ranged and still be ok at melee range. i think it would work since the melee works at ranged.

    thanks for the info.

    My personal testing has shown that it's most likely the weapon you are auto-attacking with.

    the ranged weapons tend to be better dps vs 1handers of same levels so bard should really always take the ranged weapon's dmg. :/
