    Default How to bard in Raids

    1. I select a good movie to watch
    2. Have auto mouse clicker downloaded
    3. Set all my auto clicks to my motifs and verse of joy
    4. Find a competent Ranged Dps to Auto Follow
    5. Watch movie and listen to vent to see if I need to release due to a wipe or when loot drops

    you fail in the need of that bit of healign you do. you still need to spam cadence and your finisher to heal

    if you could take those to into it you'd win.

    actually it might just keep that person allive. or it might just kill that boss the second before you wipe.

    (for some reason we've had alot of 1% wipes in greenscale)

    better than the anticipated bard in pvp scenario after patch 1.2. Match starts, close with enemy, play you motifs, enemy notices you, already immune to mez, you die, ressurect, switch roles, enjoy the match.

    Pretty sure you can do that. If it's a boss encounter, just target the boss and macro in something like:

    Cast Cadence
    Wait 2.5 (give or take for latency)
    Cast Cadence
    Wait 2
    Cast Coda of Restoration

    Do that like 3x, then refresh motifs. It won't be efficient, but it doesn't matter.

    That would be great if we could cast cadence while moving.

    It's fine. So maybe you don't always have 5 CP. You are watching a movie though, remember? If the contributions you made to the party were that great that you needed to be efficient and optimal, you wouldn't be able to watch a movie.

    Don't worry, I don't Bard when I raid. I wanted to, but turns out I do too well as DPS =/. They won't let me Bard.

    Correct. Usually the scrub rogue gets the Bard job, but I still watch them like a hawk. Bard =/= slacker

    either that or not fail at being a bard...

    I'm a complete noob and I still know how to run a bard better than the OP. There's so much more than just your motifs that a good bard can contribute. keeping both debuffing codas up, throwing your various heals (yeah they aren't great, but your main healer will appreciate you topping off people being hit by adds so they can focus on the main tank) using your pet to pull heat off the healers or dpsrs who draw too much aggro until the tank can get to them. Contribute dps with your secondary soul i.e. NB or ranger.

    I guess that's the difference between someone who plays to have fun and someone who plays for some mysterious other reason that makes you want to be able to "accomplish" something with the minimum effort required.

    wow first off your a **** sounds like your barding with out 51 points in bard so this tells me you dont raid at all or that your guild is bad you need 51 points in bard for verse of joy(intervate) second if you were smart you would put 8 points in Nb for the bonus dmg for cadence and 7 points in riftstalker for the bonus ap to make cadence hit harder...I was just joking around cuz bard is really only motifs...Next time know your **** before you come at me bro...kthxbai
