    Default Some questions about the bard

    I have a 29 rogue and have played with most souls but the bard. My question is if you were going to level solo on a PVP server what two other souls would you take with the bard? I know they will level slower than a pure dps class but I would like to have a nice mixture of decent dps and survivability for all the ganking that happens. Its been my experience that a lot of bard encounters 1v1 in the open world they are somewhat difficult to kill due to the buffs and healing and they slowly kill you....thoughts from any bards are welcome.

    You want survivability and soloability when it comes to PvP AND PvE with focus on Bard? Riftstalker and Nightblade make great compliments.

    Give this a try:

    Riftstalker gives survivablity.
    Nightblade gives damage.
    Sab gives some utility.
    Ranger gives pets.
    MM gives some more ranged dps.

    Overall, I feel that if you're going to mainsoul a bard, pretty much any other rogue soul can compliment it in some way.


    Edit: Note that Bladedancer gives you up to +5% to hit in the first tier. This is going to be MAJOR. I already notice the misses much much more than any other soul I've played.
