    Question Are we going to have an overpopulation of Bards?

    I realize that people can shift between roles on the fly and that probably most rogues will have a role specced out for Bard/Support. So my question to you all isn't whether there will be too many rogues doing that.

    My question is: what % of rogues will be playing the Bard soul as their "main?"

    If you're planning on rolling a Rogue for release, below is a poll you can answer.

    Thanks!

    I expect rogue will be a very popular choice. Its high survival, ranged damage...

    Actually, from the most recent BETA I see more melee rogues/warriors/cerlics/nerco mages than anything.

    Let them join. Any class that heals while doing some damage is alright with me.
    If I wanted to hear from a butthole, I would have farted.

    It could be because the Bard souls is a very good choice to level with
    I say wait for level 50 and see how things turn out.

    And on topic I'll pick Bard/Sab or bard/MM

    pretty much all my builds have like 6 points in bard, it is simply better than any 3rd soul out there, as far as that making it my main? i wouldnt classify dumping a few points in a tree my main.

    I'm planning to level as Bard/NB/Rift. Up to 42, it's by far the easiest and quickest Rogue soul to level with. Their damage is adequate enough to get quests done quickly and there is zero downtime along with extremely high survivability.

    Am I the only one that never sees bards in warfronts? It might be b/c I go in a group but the pugs are almost never bards maybe another bard every 5 games.

    The only thing you have to keep in mind is if you are a bard and in a group with another bard you have to kinda coordinate your songs so you both aren't canceling each other out. Was like this in everquest
    Online since 1994. MajorMud, UO, EQ 1/2, AC 1/2 DAOC, Earth and Beyond, Anarchy Online, Horizons, SWG, Lineage 2, WoW, LOTR, Pirates of the Burning Sea, Star Trek Online, RIFT!
