    Default Bard Gear Question

    I was wondering what type of gear would help boost bard heals. The only rogue gear i've seen is either dps or tank. I've seen the Greater Essence in Sanctum but that's it as far as bard enhancements go.

    What type of gear should I be looking for? Is Cadence considered physical damage or magical? Would any cloth armor that helps boost mage heals (if they exist, haven't looked) also boost bard heals?

    Cadence does non-physical damage, but is based off of your weapon damage. So yes, you use normal DPS gear for barding. Spellpower, int, all that stuff does nothing for you.

    Might as well start gearing toward Attack Power (probably already were if you are Barding alot) since 1.4 will bring gear scaling to the table for Bard healing via attack power boost
