    Default Bard Equality in Rift ? WHERE IS IT ?

    OK so Trion has not implemented ANY END Game Bard Weapons as OF 1.3 gear now ?

    GSB / RoS has Zero bard Relics.

    You got
    epic Axe from Johlen
    epic Axe from Pluto
    epic Axe from xAP Kaler

    RELIC TANK AXE FROM GSB - with a max of 129 dmg, Compared to the max of 106 dmg From axe of Pluto - yes with the extra Stats the Epic gives compred to the axe the Damage output is ~ equal.


    1.3 Screenshots of gear on RJ shown

    Epic axe at 75-140 Max dmg
    Relic Sword at 74-136 max dmg - with this NOT having any Proc ability...

    With this being SAID where the hell are the bard weapons in this game . Every other class have a viable RELIC designed FOR THEIR SPECIFIC class .

    Rogues Got Daggers in 1.0-1.2. No bard or Melee End game weapons. Now in 1.3, they finally get a sword that will be viable for Melee DPS specs, but with the changes NOW all the warriors will be trying to get this.

    Yes bards were proven to be Extremely OP when stacked AT the beginning of Rift. Since then, they have been scaled DOWN to where an Expert Weapon (epic axe From xAP) gives 3 Less Damage/Healing Than (epic xe From Pluto) on a Non Crit Cadence Proc.


    Seriously, Trion Please.

    I just did some math that i'm sure others have also done. For every 1 Spell power a weapon has it increases Healing Grace healing BY ~ .45 healing. So 100+ spell power = 45 healing points.

    If calculations are correct Epic compared to Relic quality clearic gear (sword and totem) 1.3 give a difference of 72 spell power (Not including wis/int) witch would = + 32 healing on a Healing Grace.


    WHERE DOES THE BALANCE OF BARD HEALING HAVE COMPARED TO A CLERIC ???????????

    Out Rage / Flame / Agree / PROMOTE CHANGES BELOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
