    Default Bard/Ranger/Riftwalker... some thoughts?

    So I made my first character last night and ended up choosing Bard/Riftwalker/Ranger for my souls. I was mostly choosing based on suggested roles, though I did know the basics (RW is a "tanky" soul and Ranger is a Pet soul).

    I mostly want to play a Bard. I love being a buffer/debuffer/off-healer in MMOs. And as such, it's been my experience that ranged weapons tend to be more synergistic with that type of role. Hence the reason I chose Ranger (and the pet helps with solo). And the added defense of Riftwalker seemed cool.

    However, it seems the majority of RW skills can only be performed with a Melee weapon.

    So I guess my question is: If I want to primarily be a Bard, are my current soul choices good for what I'm looking for, or should I consider other combinations?

    For example, I've heard Bard/Ranger/MM is good, Bard/RW/Nightblade is good... What are your opinions?


    Disclaimer: I know I might get some "play what you want" responses, but I'm looking for suggestions on what combos have the best synergy... I'm aware that nearly anything is viable.

    Bard/Riftstalker/Nightblade

    Riftstalker for Attack Power(better heals), damage reduction, planar shifts, and increased healing received.

    Nightblade for +15% damage on combo point generators/finishers(better healing).

    I'm in the same boat. I've found that the Bard / Ranger combo is the bee's knees, but I'm still hung on that last soul. I'm not in love with the bow, but the pet keeping the mob off me while I sing him to death (a RL skill I have as well according to my wife) works great. In fact I rarely pull out the bow, but I'm sure I'm missing some DoT skills in there I should be making use of.

    All that being said, what's a good 3rd soul for this combo? As I mentioned I'm getting plenty of what I need out of the bard line, so I'd imagine this would be more for the passive gains that anything. Thoughts, suggestions?
