    Default Bard MM build

    I'm bored with the standard builds you see floating about, so I tried to do something a bit different:

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1M...zAudR.xhbVV00o
    It's more of a skirmish build, open maps only (codex, whitefall, oPvP).

    21 Bard to gain Improved anthem of competence - this means you have a permanent 20% speed boost, even when in combat. It does stack with improved SS, HD and on the double/get away. Speccing 21 points into here also gives fanfare of vigor and power two + coda of restoration which can crit for around 1k healing if needed.

    The 45 in MM lets you have most of the nice stuff including eradicate.

    I used this for the first time last night and took down two people at one point. I must have p***ed some rogues off as they constantly tried to jump me. But simply pop break free, hit retreat, and if snared simply hit on the double/get away. And start strafing with your 20% run speed.

    You wont do *massive* damage, but you'll do enough, and have enough utility to provide a solid support role. It's also a lot of fun.

    oops, I messed up the linked spec. Simply take one out of MM Killer Instinct and put it into Coda of Restoration.

    So the title should have read;
    Bard/MM build for PvP.
    I can already imagine some poor sap trying to do this spec in PvE.

    Indeed! It was too late to change it once I'd given it some thought.

    Remove one point from MM and you can take Riff in Bard. Normal Crap>Dead Eye>Riff>Dead Eye would be powerful.

    I'd like to keep 44 points in MM for eradicate, so later i'll try moving the point I had in coda of restoration into rif.

    So builder -> bullseye -> dead eye -> riff -> dead eye. or even better, start with strafe.

    Does the attack bonus from whispered silence work on ranged weapons? If so, pop that at the start.
