    Default Barb Build which souls?

    Hi Everyone,

    I was looking at a bard to try out but there are so many souls you can choose from. So I made this build. I would like some comment on it or maybe there is another combo with others souls that work better.

    This is the build I was thinking of. http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0MicV.V.EIdqiqskqz.q . Now I was thinking of putting the last points in Coup de Grace or Unstable state of the nightblade tree. Maybe better to put 3 in Unstable state and two in Coup de Grace. Then you get 6% for both.

    Thanks

    This is what I run:

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...b.EIdqiqskqz.V

    51/8 Bard/NB is pretty standard. Leaves you with 7 points.

    Some will go RS, 5 into +%AP and 2 into Boosted Recovery. I take those two and put them in Coup de Grace, since Boosted Recovery only benefits you.

    I've also seen 7 put into Ranger (5 in Eagle Eye, 2 in Killing Focus or Bolster). My math has shown me that AP > Crit, so the +15% AP from RS, especially by T1ish outweighs 5% crit in Ranger. People say subbing Ranger allows your Cadence damage to be based off ranged attacks and that Killing Focus affects it. I haven't tested this to check it out, but even if it did, it wouldn't impact Coda of Resto, Motif of Regen, or Verse of Vitality.

    Overall, once you have the 51 in Bard and 8 in NB, the rest is up to you.

    Ahh ty for the info.

    But what about that hit from BD. Isnt that worth having at lvl 50?

    Also you get from BD the Dex buff for all in the group.

    You get a Str/Dex buff as a Bard. They don't stack.

    Hit is unbelievably easy to come across on gear. I haven't tried to stack hit on my Bard and I am only 2/5 out of the T2 Experts with 168 Hit. Nothing is runed for hit, either.
