    Default Bard-simple meter hps-cadence not counted?

    Sorry if this is posted in the wrong forum section, here seemed the most logical place.

    Simple meter does not show cadence in the hps breakdown. Instead it shows it as dps .
    My question is, does anyone know if the heals from cadence are included in our hps totals?


    Thanks!

    cadence does dps

    invigorated soul does heals "based on cadence damage"

    the heals from cadence show up on meters as "invigorated soul"

    OP, why are you concerned with bard hps? Is that the reason you think bards are brought along in a raid for?

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.

    Why are so many experienced rogues determined that bards should not be played to their full potential?

    Let me break down the bard playstyle in any progression guild, run all three anthems, have motifs up 100% of the time, avoid mechanics that kills you, that's it. Bards are not a healing class, and never will be, they provide buffs and fervor/resonance, that's it. Their minor off heals is not going to save anyone, it's trickle hps that provides subtle patch work for the real healers.

    Let me guess, your progression raiding experience is zero? Right?

    Replace Motif with CD and anthems with buffs and u got the playstyle of Rogue in general and every other dps. I prefer a Bard that pays attention and shows interest on its role 100% over a guy like you that doesnt care. Same applies to every other role

    Congratulations on being carried to your achievement, probably by a bard, amongst others, that had a ****ing clue (unlike you).

    Pretty sure I was not carried, no one would put up with someone that can not avoid raid mechanics, and I'm pretty sure if I was dying to mechanics or underperforming, that I would not have multiple akylios kills under my belt. So grats on being bad at this game, this game is rather easy, noobs always try to complicate their lives for no good reason.

    You're really bad at any game if you think it takes any brain cells to play a bard in any raid.

    You are fail. Your statements are fail. You were carried (if your achievement is even real).

    I dub thee Sir Failalot, Head of the Order of Fail and Grand Marshall of the Telaran Armies of Fail. I salute thee, oh failing one.
