    Default Bard and range ?

    After a lot of reading, I want to make a bard who is able to cast cadence on bow, not melee.
    I wrote 2 builds, but I am still wondering which of them is best for support, or if they are both wrong because there are still things I don't understand :

    bar 44 (for verses)
    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...b.V.icdqiqskVz
    bard 37 (more crits ?)
    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M....VM.VcdqioskVz

    an advice would be great please.

    The 44pt build you list is what I enjoy using in dungeons and events without a dps burn phase. Heals crit for 1132 very frequently and CoFury hits 1000. Motif of Regen ticks for 205.

    Not sure about the poison talents in the second build. I know Saboteurs charges are treated as poisons but I don't know about bard healing effects. If they are, I wouldn't see how that would make them crit more often. I would wait for comments from others. They should be able to better inform you on the second build vs anything I could say.

    To use your bow, you could simply fire off a Quick Shot.

    Uh dumb question, but if you want Cadence to use your bow/gun damage rather than melee, do you need to be using MM or Ranger?

    One or the other, but Rangers is the more useful of the two.

    Anyway; will the increased crit make up for the +15% and +9% Cadence damage/healing from Nightblade (And the +5% from Melted skin, should you go that far)?

    Poison : I read somewhere that they affect cadence too.
