Bard pvp/pve spec help pls
Been reading alot of threads etc and would like sum advice on choosing a role for bard that could be viable in raid and pvp. I enjoy bard but not to the degree that i want to give 2/5 roles to it and would welcome some input as i do find bard abit confusing from time to time.
In the Rogue Bible there is the 51bard 8 Nightblade 7 Ranger spec.
The diff between the 2 i see is ranger one has:
5% crit bonus (does this count towards crit heals? and if so which ones and would i get a crit proc as i have Frozen Deep One tear (shield) and Crystal Vine (heal) as my greaters.
4% damage buff always nice.
Predatory Instincts nice buff.
pet (every bit of weak dps counts i suppose)
and Head Shot (does this 5% increase help work with bard skills or jus ranger?)
a 51bard 8 nightblade 7 Riftstalker ive been looking at:
Unseen Fury 15% extra AP (i have stalkers crystal and pre HK alot of 1st or 2nd BiS items so nicely geared) this would prob cancel out Predatory Instincts ?
Shadow Shift: very handy in pvp and pveish if i forget to see a ground aoe under me lol
Planebound Existence buff: extra 420hp always welcome in pvp and pve aoe intensive healing fights, i stay up and can help others do the same.
Exceptional Resilience or Boosted Recovery wha 2 points would be better? xtra healing or extra damage recieved? prob damage recieved to help survivability?
and then theres the weapon thing. Would 1st spec use ranged weapon and wha does this mean exactly vs 2nd spec going off melee weapon i presume? never understood how weapon affects the bard so help here be appreciated.
My gut says 2nd spec is better suited for me but i dont wanna miss out on summin blatently useful and lose major dps / heals.
thanks in advance!
