    Default Idea. Guitar / Trumpets for bards.

    Good evening forums!

    One thing I find rather annoying with bards, is the constant attack animation after you used a spell.

    The daggers and bows are completely useless for a main Bard, that decides to stand at range playing his guitar / supporting his mates.

    My suggestion: Add trumpets and guitars as weapons, which would play a single note when autoattacking.

    Or atleast do something about the annoying forced attack animation.

    prolly too late in the game now but they should have made a separate ranged weapon class for bards...instead of being able to equip bows and guns make instruments only bards can equip...that would have been better imo

    You can buy lutes and other instruments in main cities with some kind of currency. Lucky Coins? Not sure on the instruments' use.

    I'll bet my last bucks on the fact that Stravinsky is going to be the composer of the Bards epic auto-attack melodies.

    In all seriousness,

    Wouldn't it be awesome if you could buy "nodesheets" for your character, to play from while doing exactly that?

    People would be jammin' good (and different) music all over the place!

    I do find it kind of weird that I pull out a bow or melee weapons for a split second in between casts.

    This way your char still feels like a real rogue. Albeit shortly.

    It should be something under your Trion profile. I think when you setup the account for the beta and stuff there is a spot that asks for a forum name.

    Send them an e-mail and request a change.

    Bards auto-attacking should sound like this:

    I would *love* to have that play during warfronts.

    Bards need a piano for melee and bells for ranged.
