    What I mean is that you should not try to use your bard soul for dps, but that does not mean you shouldn't be using "bard" for DPS. I am at the top of damage/healing done/healing taken/damage taken in most of the warfronts with my NB/Bard. Its ridiculous even in 1v1, and the only time I've been annihilated was vs. stormcaller with codex double-damage buff. However even if I do have few points more in the NB soul, I still consider myself a bard.

    Attack Power is the most important stat if you want to add to Cadence and the damage finishers.

    I did a test with Riftstalker +15% to ap passive and switch roles to a build without it.

    My Cadence was ticking for about 8% more from having +15% AP

    Motiffs that add AP and the Fanfare which adds AP (str/dex) also adds damage to cadence.

    Since cadence is a heal as well as DPS even an 8% boost to it is significant because that's increasign the healing as well.

    The finishers damage also shot up from ap.
