    Default Bard damage?

    I can't find anything on what helps Bards...what increases the damage and healing of Bard abilities? Do they use attack power or spell power or both? And what about increasing their crit? Thanks for any help.

    Attack Power, Dex, Str, Melee Hit and Physical Crit all increase a Bard's damage output.

    same thing. the game does conversions of stats for us. such as the reason melee clerics can just pick up chain with INT WIS AN SP on it. There are some conversions that Trion just builds in to make itemization a bit more rational. That way we dont have to collect sets for every little thing. Its nice, although I am a packrat that normally has 5 or 6 alts just for gear and other non bindables, that they have done that as it makes the process easier for casual folks who dont want to spend time making sure they have the proper gear set for each individual aspect of their class. Although there are certain things you'd still want to itemize for. Such as dps vs tanking etc.

    But as far as Bard goes you can wear normal leather.
