    If you want to know what class is going to be nerfed next ... just watch the PvP min/maxers

    Think they'll make it so Warriors can dodge and parry musical notes?

    That's cute. I'm sure most bards won't care, which means it won't be nerfed.

    Insert quarter if you would like to try again.

    I am guessing this will be the case as well.

    I agree with nurfing bards!

    When they perform their abilities that racket they call music is far too loud and it blocks out my music ruining my PvP and my PvE groove!

    You min/max .... You gamble.. Dont whine when you know what happens!"

    I have seen you post this in a few different threads now.
    i could not disagree more.
    your basic argument is that players need to make bad soul combinations
    in an attempt to be a non-factor.
    it makes no sense in the slightest.

    i suppose i need to equip cloth and a staff just to be on the safe side. (warrior)


    (i posted this on another thread- but i think it belongs on this one more)

    yeah bards will be nerfed. their healing is 2 much compared to other healers. They can dish out some pretty nasty numbers and you can compare with full healing souls out there

    They are currently out healing about 8 or 9 out of 10 fully specced healing players I am seeing in Warfronts. This is because all healing was nerfed, save for Bards.

    Not that I feel they should be nerfed, mind you. But true healing specs should be brought back up to what they should be capable of doing. Bards are great as is.

    speaking as a rogue who has played a lot of bard in pvp, i'm gonna have to say i wouldn't give 2 s***s if they nerfed anything about bards. I love playing them in pve, and every time there's a healer shortage in pvp i go bard with a deep sigh. go ahead. nerf bards. you'll never see one in a WF again.

    we can't even throw direct heals and half the healing you get from a bard is from essence or trinket procs. heals from cadence suck and the 20 yard range BS is... well BS. And virtuoso/resto coda get's you cc'd, silenced or killed faster than you can say BARD.

    go ahead. nerf bards. you'll never see one in a WF again.

    I hope the people that are saying nerf bards aren't serious...you realize their healing is only good in close quarters combat right?

    They have to be standing still to use cadence, which is also at a 20m range, so a warrior can easily port/stun/charge you.

    They can also be silenced, which makes them almost useless.

    Ya sure they can be hard to kill at times and comparable to the chloro/lock...but have you looked at their damage output? In my raid bard spec I pulled off at most 3KBs in a WF out of pure luck.

    I really really hope they don't nerf the bards because they are "so OP" in WFs as people say...the only time I ever seen them run is BG and the new Whitefall!

    I also suspect mages will be the next up on the chopping block now that in almost every warfront I join, I see some chloro variation at the top of damage and heals.
