    Default Lesser/Greater Essence Recommendations for T1/2 Bards

    Would it be best to stick with normal rogue dps oriented essences or should I be aiming for something else?

    I use a healing Greater. It does make a difference.

    Most bards go with the Heals provide a heal over time or the Heals provide an absorption shield greater essences. Both of them work very well. This is assuming you have a Source Machine set up for healing. Otherwise honestly I would set my Source machine for your DPS build.

    Putting together a source engine for it was the plan. Thanks for the links Kalima, that helped quite a bit.

    Prioritize those with the highest Dex with +AP as a secondary bonus.

    I would say a high dex with crit as a secondary aspect on it, since the majority of bard's heals are based off of combo points, it's better to have the crit chance on heals as opposed to AP, which is ONLY what cadence would be based off of, not your codas.
    So dex/crit

    At this point all essences I am setting up are resistance based. As an example my current Marksman Source machine has 62 Life Resistance on it. As we are raiding Greenscale's Blight. The Life Resistance hasn't gone to waste.
