    Default What Bard stat do you start stacking at endgame?

    So we all know that a Bard exists to be a utility player.

    In endgame, what is the stat that Bards want to stack? is it still dex and attack power / crit?
    I'm getting close to 50 and would like to get an idea of what I should be stacking so that i'm effective in a raid situation when I hit 50.

    Stat Priority for Bard:
    Hit (til cap) > AP > Dex > Str > crit

    Hit is to make sure Cadence doesn't Miss.

    This is correct.

    There is a common misconception that Crit > AP. This *may* be the case for DPS Rogue souls, but is *not* accurate for Bards.

    Id stack pr0n, so i could work on my manliness while letting my AutoIT macro working for the raid group. Coz noway in hell i can avoid turning into a zombie if i should manually keep all the motifs up and just plainly doing the tab+cadence rounds.

    i stack end. AP adds nothing to my heals, ive tested this. crit adds nothing too, nothing adds anything so i stack endurance so i dont die. i sit at 7000hp as a bard and im there to buff my party and that's about it. i never die and it works great.
