    What do you see as your purpose on the battlefield?

    You're missing some pretty decent Bard abilities.

    this build is healer build, simple,
    spam cadence aoe heal and use rift guard evry 30 seconds,

    ppl will start to focus you and u can use your defensive buffs to survive it all, while still spamming heals

    I assume the point is to buff AND heal. In that order.

    Either way, you're missing a pretty significant heal and some decent buffs accessible to a Bard.

    nope i will try and buff when ever possible but it is primarily a build for keeping everyone alive and keeping myself alive,

    buffing when i have spare 2-3 global cooldowns , buffs means nothing if the team is dead cause of lack of heals.

    and the buffs would be the 5% healing 5% less damage taken and the healing motif . there the only ones i would try and keep up

    and not to mention that significatn heal your talking about is on a 60 second cooldown....

    All this says to me:

    Go cleric.

    For the bard your buffs should be primary, heals secondary, loldmg tertiary.

    rofl i do have a cleric for heals, i found bard fun to play , and very efficient, no mana (no downtime)
    i can keep groups healed with ease

    unfortunately i think bard is going to be one of those unappreciated classes that no one realizes does anything until they lose him... the way the buffs are simply always up on a good bard, and the way the heals just flow, the benefit they bring the group would be masked, but believe me on how awesome they are to have in your group

    I like the build on the whole. It is a little similar to something I was doing.

    I will agree with some of the others that you are lacking a couple of Bard skills that are really great for support.

    You don't have Riff which is a great 1-min CD ability to get 5 CP. You can use this to setup the killing blow or pop a heal in a crunch. I would consider it essential for PvP support. The healing ability you're missing is more personal preference really. You have to put 44 points in Bard to get Verse of Vitality which does about the same healing as a 5 CP Coda of Restoration.

    It looks like you are definitely leaning toward the more defensive/survival side of playing a Bard so good luck with that.

    As a comparison for you I will link the build I'll be going with.

    especially when a good bard " ie: me" outheals every cleric and we dont lose a warfront then i go dps spec and we start losing then i go back to bard and we win, i think that proves points

    also when 4 ppl are hitting on me and seeing my health not drop they give up after 30 seconds and go to the next target lol, but its funny watching that 1 person who just stays on u like 4 minutes and im telling everyone on vent to watch this guy hitting on me see how long until he gives up lol and he was on me for the entire game lol was hilarious
