    for what purpose? pvp? raiding? solo pve? experts?

    at the bard tree i would take riff and coda of fury. fury for some ae spamming dps with virtuoso.
    skipstreet smart for that.
    put the last point from street smart into bd for double coup. put it in counterbalance for example.

    ugh, that spec almost makes my eyes bleed, what are you trying to do with it?

    if you want to be a cadence healer ditch the following in blade dancer:

    Blade and Fury - your only using cadence - 2 points
    Blade Tempo - cadence isnt physical - 1 point
    Blade Hustle - no rythmic cooldowns - 3 points
    Vivacity - not using blade dancer skills - 2 points
    Dancing Steel - its crap - 1 point

    that frees up 9 points

    ditch the following in bard:

    Street Smart - its crap - 3 points
    5 other points (virtuoso / resonance) and take riff

    Take 17 points in sin

    ruthlessness, serrated blades +2 filler, crue vengeance and magnify pain.

    if you want to be a support bard, go 51 bard 8 nightblade 7 ranger, theres no other option

    for pvp, ask someone else.

    but that spec, it just doesnt synchronize, it looks like its trying to be melee dps and support at the same time, yet failing heavily in both

    Without knowing the intent of the build it's hard to say too much, but this is incorrect. Cadence is weapon + life damage, and cadence gets a boost from blade tempo.
