    Default Bard Solo Heals RotP General Silgen - Toughest Fight Pre-Akylios

    I'm often one to bag on bards, saying they are nothing more than glorified buff bots. I can also admit when I'm wrong. Tonight on General Silgen, I set up the raid with one healer - a Senticar. Unfortunately, he died 1:36 into the fight and was our only b-rezzer. Surprisingly, we didn't wipe.

    We had a chloro in the raid, but he was pyro-chloro for dispel and did essentially no healing. For about 4 minutes, the bard kept everyone alive.

    I was cruising along at 2.7k until a Heat Wave / Heat Funnel caught me near the end, which was too much burst for Faylinkz to heal, but everyone else lived. That puts him at world #1 HPS for that fight as well, by the way: http://riftlogs.com/riftlogs/ranking.../m/healing/c/2

    Nerf bard, I guess.

    When people understand the fight, it is not a *death-to-damage* fight, it is a execution fight where majority of the damage can be out right avoided. So, Bard should be able to heal it no problem at all.

    Grats on having people who can dodge Heat Funnel, I guess.

    If you thought bards were just buff machines, you probably just made the least geared rogues bard by default. I actually run into this problem quite a bit... we've been carrying a poorly geared rogue, so my raid leader won't let me bard since it would be a dps loss. If you've got the right trinket and greaters (like your bard's SHoE), they make for great healers. I'll occasionally solo-heal a T2 just for ****s and giggles.

    Ya bard is beast in RoTP actually, easy to sit over 1k hps as a bard on almost every fight. It's the most fun instance to bard in the game, you feel needed.

    Unless you only meant of Rogues.. but thats purely circumstance as no one expects bards to main heal fights..

    Try it on a fight where only the tank takes damage, see how bard does. See if you can replace a healer then.

    Less than half the heals on the tank were from the Bard... not really solo. It's still an impressive reflection on your group.

    That's cool and all about the bard stuff, but did you ever figure out how to kill that squirrel?
