    Default Bard tree help

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...bVz.qIdqi0soqz

    I read somewhere that Bard with off soul ranger makes me start using the ranged weapon for Cadences? If that is the case, i'll just grab that at zero point. I'm looking more for a gank squad bard. Mainly focusing on PvP.

    Yes, if you use cadence on range, ranged weapon dmg count, if on melee, melee weapon dmg count.

    Forgive me. So if i select a target and it's melee it will use my melee weapon damage? If i select a mage it will use my ranged weapon?

    Or are you saying to get rid of riftstalker and take ranger, a soul tree that focuses on ranged weapons.

    I'm willing to bet, that in the long run, it really won't matter too much.

    Cadence doesn't apply weapon enchants (poisons).

    Well, I have not tested with assassin. I have tested with the night blade fire weapon procs and they dont work, and someone else posted that none of the weapon procs worked.

    Thank you for the heads up. I guess the full stealth build wont work for bard .

    I wonder if cadence and codas are considered spells or physical attacks.

    Well, the tooltip says weapon plus life damage, correct? That would mean it deals life damage, not physical.

    It was probably triggered from your ranged auto attacks rather than cadence, which is why it was kind of random, instead of more frequent.

    That's true for many physical skills that add elemental damage but bard skills aren't physical in nature since they can't be blocked, parried or dodged.

    What if wonder is what kind of greater planar essences work with bard skills, the physical or the magical ones.
