    Exclamation Bard complaint/suggestion

    I was lucky enough to be in beta 5 and I thought it was awesome. I already pre-ordered my collectors from Amazon. I enjoyed playing the bard but there was one thing about the bard that really bugged me.

    The bard is a ranged dps/support/buff class but it was really annoying after every musical blast my character would switch to his lame weak sauce daggers to auto attack. Most of the time I would use another musical attack before he even got a strike off. So it just looked really stupid I would be holding my lute then bam daggers the n lute then daggers.

    I just want to walk around holding my instrument, I don't want to see my daggers/swords and I don't want him to use them. Its really a visual issue of anything but one that is really vexing and constantly in my face.


    Using the Z key you can swap between melee and ranged weapon to be on your character. I was thinking for people with a bard soul please make it so the Z key will also cause you to swap so your just walking around holding your lute or horn. I know its kinda silly but to people with OCD like me it makes the bard almost unplayable. I dont want him to use any weapons except his instruments. Visually speaking of course, will still have them equiped.

    I would like this as well. My bard seemed spastic with his flailing between his weapons and instruments.

    I dunno why, but I always target bards first in Warfront. Damned Bards.

    nice idea, but i'd honestly prefer to see musical instruments in the game for us bards, with their own stats and sounds, drums, trumpets, saxaphones etc.

    That would be super awesome but theres no way their going to add a whole new class of musical weapons for bards to equip. I'm trying to think of something that would actually be doable before release. Musical attacks basically do weapon damage + life so using weapons are pretty ingrained to the class. I just freaking hate the way it looks.
    Getting an epic flute would be amazing but I think its alittle much to ask.

    Would be awesome to see bards swinging at their enemies with their lutes. On second thought, it would be even better if they all had tubas.

    Marching sousaphones, where they do a bow and smack someone over the head with it.

    I saw an indie film where the lead was a dude with a guitar sword. He would rock out with the guitar and then stab dudes with it.
