    Default Bard abilities, what the heck are they?

    Are they physical? Like blade dancer or are the non physical like a nightblade? And what stats have the most impact on a bard? Crit? AP? Or just plain Dex?
    I cant seem to find a strait answer anywhere.

    Non-physical (you can verify this by putting points into a talent that boosts non-physical damage).

    At the moment Cadence is scaling poorly with AP which would make me think maybe Dex/Crit is better, but I don't play a bard and endgame. Most of their contribution comes in the way of buffs (and a few debuffs) which don't scale with any stat, so your stats are pretty much buffing Cadence, but the coefficient is terrible.

    There's information out there, just hard to find it.

    Bard is non-physical damage, all of it.

    Dex, crit and attack power are all desired stats to find for gear but the general idea is stacking attack power as much as you can since we gain more benefit from it oppose to stacking crit. Dex will come naturally from the gear and thus, crit from Dex as well.
