    Default Motif of Encouragement

    So what exactly is the point of this ability now? It used to be a class defining bard skill, now it's just a joke.

    They got rid of it. Now it only turns you into a pied piper.

    Lord knows no one would want any kind of flavor in their game. Oh no.

    MMO is SERIOUS business. Don't you forget it!

    It's still fun.

    They thought about removing it but instead turned it into a fun spell instead. Bards still get the effectiveness of this elsewhere.

    The point of it is to be a fun to use fluff spell

    Imo this skill is completely and utterly pointless. It has no use at all, none, zip, nada. Even if you can find some critters to 'charm' all they do is follow you. They dont attack anything you attack, they dont absorb any damage you take. Seriously Trion? you thought this skill would be useful how?

    Having a fluffy piece of **** filler skill is a waste. No other soul in the game, that i know of, has a skill that does NOTHING of use. Did they look at the bard and go, hey, lets give them a skill tht does absolutely **** all for the luls!

    No, its not funny, i dont want to waste points just to gt a useless skill. make it do something USEFUL or just remove it.

    my god.. the responses.. is this seriously the crowd that will be playing the game on my shard? hope not..

    take a chill pill folks.. there are people out there who love these kind of RP oriented fun "touches" here and there.. the rage.. the anger..

    i guess this is the long term results of the item based - LAN-isation of mmos today where everything is measured in stats and everything is goal oriented..

    sad indeed..

    Is that their stand? Have you talked this over with Trion, and they confirmed it? Good to know you have the inside info on things!

    I love spells like this too. Brings more flavor to an otherwise tired system of mechanics.

    Nothing wrong with fluff/fun spells. But for a 38 point ability to be 100% useless is stupid.
