    Default Healing Bard for PVE and PVP.

    I am trying to work out a good healing bard set up with the ability to mainly do pve but with some pvp capabilities as well. But I just don't know anything about the end game set ups or what I will mainly be facing.

    That is what I have so far. Enough bard to get up to Verse of Vitality, Some damage mitigation with Riftstalker and just enough Assassin to get stealth. If there are better paring then what I have or if the high level bard stuff like Verse of Vitality is worth it.

    Thanks for the help.

    Try that. If you want a stealth, don't go Assassin, go Nightblade. You still get stealth but with a 15% boost to your cadence which increases the healing it does.

    Also, you really don't need an AoE damaging finisher as a healer, so extend the duration of cowardice and distress to give you more free time for your heal finisher.

    OMG, I didn't see that! Thanks for the tip!

    And this will be my Bard setup: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1McNi.EIdqiqskqz.gh.V

    If you are going Ranger to have the pet to tank for you, it won't do you any good at end game. At level 30 the starter Ranger pet becomes useless. If you want a pet to tank for you post level 30 you will need to have at least 24 points in Ranger. This kind of kills the whole "full Bard" thing, imo. That's why i said Riftstalker. You don't need a tanky pet. You can tank for yourself.

    Wow thanks Finkle. I didn't even notice that about the nightblade. I will use that for sure. other than that it looks pretty solid? I hope so hehe. I guess we will not know till we can get high enough level to actually try out the last bard abilities.
