    Default Has anyone tried a bard as main heals

    Just curious if anyone has recently tried this and if so how well did it work out.

    Yes and it does not work. Bards are great for support and their buffs and debuffs truly shine in PvP. But you would not want to go into a dungeon with one as a main healer.

    Bards cannot heal through burst damage. It would be interesting to see 4 bards and a tank though. I know you would not get full use out of all the bards, since there is only so many buffs, but spamming 4 cadences, Coda of Restorations, would be fun to play with.

    I've heard of some Bards doing it in the lower level dungeons, but generally the group was above the dungeon level.

    yeah, it failed miserably. I rocked the house in PvP with heals/dps blend.

    You can't heal serious damage on a tank like in a dungeon but it's brilliant for support or Raid and PvP healing.

    Yes you can heal i healed fc just fine, you just have to have a cleric tank. You are mainly just keeping everyone topped off.

    Thanks for the replies. Got pretty much the answer I was expecting but I thought maybe someone knew something that I didn't.

    Cheers

    Default Yea....

    Our guild did an IT run with 2 bards and we were fine with a warrior tank, but there were a lot of 'oh crap' moments that a healer would not have had, not to mention my bard was high enough to have the healing finisher at the time.
