    Depends on the fight

    15BD
    6RGR/9RS
    10RS/5 SAB

    come 1.5: 8RS/7MM

    personally not a fan of NB offspec. If you want cadence damage, go BD, else max AP.

    Ranger for predatory / using bow for dmg

    Rest RS for survivability, dead bard heals noone.

    Aside from the 51 points in bard, the rest of it really doesn't matter.

    The other 15 points are usually just spent on situational utility for whatever fight.

    Your 'burst heal' is simply virtuoso + coda spam, which isn't currently influenced by any other soul.

    Deadly Dance + Cadence gives you bigger, but ultimately still useless healing numbers in a raid.

    Your largest contribution to raid survivability is the -5% dmg taken buff, resonance for 5% stats -> stam -> hp, the shield procs from greaters / trinket and possibly +movement if your raid needs it.

    Your largest contribution to dps is fervor, verse of joy, +ap/sp/crit/stats motifs and fanfares.

    You gain nothing significant for bard from any other soul currently. Pick and choose side souls for utility / survivability.

    51bard 15bd, now your raid doesnt need to waste a DPS's time by having them dedicated to interrupts, you can do it. Not like your cadence heals are actually required )
    picking up the 15% dex from BD ofc, since deadly dance isnt going to be used ever

    (Gear)
