    Default Bard scaling question

    A few questions about how bard abilities scale with gear.

    First off: Cadence - does it only scale with weapon damage or does attack power play a role?

    Second, and more importantly: Verse of Vitality and Coda of Restoration - do these scale at all with any stat?

    Finally, and I doubt this one, but hey it's worth checking: Motifs - do they happen to scale with anything other than skill rank?

    Thanks in advance.

    Cadence scales with your main-hand/ranged weapon damage and your attack power.
    VoV and CoR - not sure on those but I'll test it later today or this week and get back to you.
    Motifs - I'm not sure on these either. I'd guess that they do not scale and are just static buffs but I'll look into that also.

    I used cadence at ranged and at melee and no difference in dmg not even the littlest and that with my ranged weapon being dbl the dmg of my melee.

    It depends on which weapon you're auto attacking with.

    Ok so I would have to switch to ranged weapon manually to see it. Thanks.

    Yep. Toggle ranged auto attack and your ranged weapon will be used for Cadence.
