    Default 51MM/15Rng/0bard in 5mans

    Assuming there is no bard or ele pet present and you don't need Break Free for the fight, does anything beat 0pt bard for the 62 AP/SP?

    Also, is it worth refreshing during the fight? Or just lead in pre-pull and forget it?

    Considering you have to use a GCD skill every 15 seconds to keep this active, I'd say it's not worth it at all. If you're having that much trouble DPS'ing in a 5-man then you need to examine your party before adding an unnecessary skill to your rotations.

    If you need a bard it's one thing (under geared tank or healer). If you need that extra sp/ap then it's something else all together.

    Not worth the global every 13 seconds or so.

    Back when I used to have bard in my tank build I'd use that on bosses to help out but I don't even have that any more.

    I understand that, but Break Free and Shadow Shift do jack all on most fights. Surely using the Motiff on the pull and having the buff up for the first 15 seconds is better?

    Ok, then tell me what other reason you would have for increasing sp/ap?

    I'm sorry I know the function of those stats and thus the reason for increasing them.

    If there is some other reason besides increasing DPS or HPS then you need to enlighten this "moron".

    It's for more DPS/HPS to the group but you had to go and say,

    "If you're having that much trouble DPS'ing in a 5-man"

    which has nothing to do with it, that's you being a condescending moron... I'm simply trying to squeeze more DPS out and saw that 0pt bard would do just that, even if it's only for the first 15 seconds of each pull. But ya, go ahead and spin it however you like.

    And I also know it isn't much, but it is compared to Break free/Planar Shift you don't need on 95% of fights, it's not bad.
