    Default Ranged Bard

    Hey guys

    I know there is a 100 topics about builds atm, but if you were to search through them all for an exact build it would take ages.

    I would like a Ranged Bard build, but the catch is: Should be good for both dungeons, regular pve AND pvp!

    Really the swapping around different roles makes my brain go nuts :/

    Also a few comments on what rotations would be nice.

    Thanks in advance

    See my post here for what i prefer for a ranged bard role that still deals dmg and heals, only downside is having to mess with a pet. Once you get the hang of it the spec is very versitile.

    Here is the spec if you don't feel like reading what I wrote about it.

    We have a recent post I created ("Ranged Support for Dungeons" etc.) where I put a build of Bard/Ranger/MM I called "Bangman". It performs worse in a single target than the melee build, but Sozu helped parsing results and it seems like the real one to go for if you want to have a ranged build with 32 points in Bard (for fervor and Virtuoso).

    This one works for experts and is decent in warfronts with rank 5+ valor gear. You can drop bard to 32 or 34 if you don't need the rez, or don't want the AoE mez.

    Mellee version

    I pull 550-650 single target dps in experts and raids with the melee version. Can hit 850+ in a raid spamming twin strike and deadly strike on 2 mobs for AoE.
