    Default Bard build for PVP?

    Most of the bard builds that I see on the forums are focused for pve. What soul combinations do you all think would be best for pvp in warfronts? Bard/Riftstalker/Infiltrator would have very high survivability, I'd imagine, but would that kind of combination provide enough damage to make your cadence actually heal?

    Bard/RS/NB if you want more healing on cadence

    Bard/RS/inf if you want more survivability

    I run http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...kqz.Vhx0hVbokk personally. It's pretty difficult to kill, you can Verse of Captivation/Rune Prison someone and cap a node before it ends, tons of absorbed damage, a couple cooldowns for survivability, plus tons of mobility. I mainly use it for holding flags/fang/sourcestones or defending nodes.

    4 point for a weaker version of RIFT GUARD is stupid imho.

    Spend 2 point for RIFT GUARD instead of 4 then use this macro

    #show Power chord
    cast power chord
    cast rift guard

    use this when a fight start then proceed with your usual rotation. Easy and fast.


    Im not a big fan of RESONANCE in pvp either... 5% stats for 5 points are spent better elsewhere, thats always IMHO xD

    I agree with Atreiu. I play on a PvP server, and I would not survive without 11 in Riftstalker. Rift Guard is that important to my survival. I usually Riff/Riftguard early and sometimes Rift Guard again as a combo breaker depending on if I'm being focus fired.

    I didn't take rift guard b/c i felt like the overall damage prevention would be negated by the healing from coda of restoration. From a personal survivability standpoint I'm sure its better to take rift guard, but from an overall group perspective I'm not sure it is.
