    Default Bards, I have some questions.

    1) Does ranged weapon or melee weapon effect damage from songs?
    2) It seemed to me that the damage from the songs and the finisher was on par with other damage builds. Does this seem correct?
    3) Although it has been dubbed a support class, with good damage I do not see why it cant be considered a DPS class with some buffs and healing. Am i off the mark?

    This would be for PvE.

    From my testing and understanding it is primary hand weapon damage that is used.

    It is correct, all the rogues are pretty even in damage abilities

    Not entirely off the mark, where we start to fall behind, in longer fights, is missing dps while refreshing Motifs (5 seconds), and when we do use Coda of Restoration, which does 0 damage. So "pure" dps builds will be doing damage for those seconds that we are not.

    This would be for PvE.
