    Default Bard motifs idea.

    So, instead of giving people playing bard carpal tunnel syndrome.

    Why not rework it into a skill that casts over time and you can select the order the motifs are buffed.

    Or give us a skill that casts them all at once deep into the soul tree this would increase our damage output and healing output.


    OR


    You could just make bard damage/heals scale better.

    I personally like bard motifs and live with having to keep them up. If you've played any other MMOs, other buffing classes have had it considerably worse. Spending 20% of my globals buffing is worth it. I know some people like bards and some people hate them, I'm sorry if you don't like the bard playstyle.

    Also, did you make another thread about the same topic? I remember someone else put in their OP that playing bard gave them "carpal tunnel syndrome." All rogues press lots of buttons, bards aren't magically requiring more button presses. If motifs were suddenly on a separate global, THEN I could see your point. That would get frustrating.

    recasting the 5 motifs every 30 seconds isn't more button presses than any other non-bard rogue spec.

    It's all the same, I really do not understand why people complain about this.

    You get your first motif. It lasts 30 seconds.

    You get your second. Running a single motif lasts 1 minute, running 2 lasts 30 seconds

    etc etc til you have 6, 1 motif lasts 3 minutes, 6 last 30s. profit!

    hitting your motifs brings up a guitarhero-esqe interface
    from there on you have to hit correct notes, if you don't miss any whatever you are trying to do instantly becomes not only successful, but awesome.

    and epics rain down on you and your party/raid as well.

    Not if it's a good idea but something happens. Motifs system is outdated. more time , other spell ...

    Trion change the motif's system.

    People who say that is fine, I think playing two days a bard.

    The big picture is that our healing and damage is subpar, if not the lowest. And keeping all motifs up during fights is a big culprit.
