    Default @P8 Bards (if there is any lol...)

    These are where I stand in small maps currently, as a P4. (Mind you, I get into all P8 Wf's due to being with Fryday, so I am not going against similarly ranked opponents)

    http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/...shouldibe4.jpg
    I'm wondering if anybody can show me any numbers of where I SHOULD stand at the moment.
    What numbers at this point should I be seeing?
    What numbers should I be seeing as a P8?
    Right now I play as 17Assas/33Brd/16NB with 0 surviv. (Bar only marked out because of how empty it is and I hate seeing it rofl)
    Also, if anybody can offer any other Builds to help crank out more heals, I'd appreciate it.
    I'll try to get screenshots of larger maps later, though the healing tends to be less due to me having to go into builds with more mobility and surviv.


    inb4 negative nancies come in here trying to be negative/rude/dumb/ect. just go.

    Im not sure what type of comments ur looking for but I'd recommend being the more annoying tank type bard. Use CC, take a lot of dmg, provide buffs, and splash heals. Bard heals aren't significant enough to keep anyone alive in a wf so you should be in a pure 100% survival spec esp with normalized valor. You should be that rly annoying target that just won't die.


    Just my thoughts

    My Guild always told me to go bard Heals, and I've kept plenty of people up with my heals alone.
    Is that spec a RS spec? because I play that mostly for Whitefall. Rift Prison is great for carriers when my team needs to catch up :P
    If not, can you throw me the spec you're talking about?
    cause I LOVE pissing people off.

    What is the goal? to be annoying and do some heals? Or to debuff and be a pain?

    Would be pretty annoying,
    2 interrupts one being a silence
    speed and cc immunity after shifts
    shift or fos in DS for DD buff shift out
    Get some heal on deflect essences and a mirror, you would be the pain in the *** of the WF.

    True. But I'm not good at getting in the face of others and living rofl.

    It's only for a sec and you could even rift prison them and use the finisher as the buff only, then shift back out. The DS wont do any damage but itll still buff you.

    Bard/RS

    That's the spec I run at rank 6, although I haven't played my rogue since the first weekend of 1.5.

    Don't ever take bard without virtuoso <3

    You could switch sab with Infil if you want break free. Ranger would give you a pet (haha) um and an instant combo point builder when you can't stand still for cadence.

    I think it's good to think of Bards as part time controller/healer and full time buffer.

    I haven't touched Bard/RS since I passed R2 :P
    I like to use my Environmental awareness and LOSing to survive :P

    You could go offensive into RS, just to move around quicker.
    Also maybe some MM to get around quicker

    Go Bard/RS awareness and LoS means nothing when someone really wants to kill you. Going bard/rs means them focusing you is just silly because you are an annoying little **** who he will have to chase down, plus the mitigation and cc are good. And the heals are good. You survive, you will heal more ). I don't see any bards outheal me when i play it because they usually will spec into more offensive souls and die.

    I did a Port Scion run on my bard since it's the double this weekend and tried to keep my team alive the best I could. Vengeance stones wore off mid WF

    The spec I use is 51bard/8nb/7rs. I like the full bard spec if it's the mood I'm in. Bigger maps indeed make it harder on a bard to purely heal. Port Scion isn't ideal having to chase people around lol. I try to stay in the important spots though. It's all relevant to the WF your in. Looks like your either on top of team heals or close. If I can manage to live for most the WF/have good healers by me I can usually land 1st or 2nd on team for total outgoing heals. I like the 51 bard spec though because if heals are fine and I still want to bard, feels like I can provide a good amount of support for a couple groups. Lots of awesome stuff outside of the healing ability if ya focus on it, sure ya know this.

    Defiant won by like ~400 ^.^ They had top healer, but huge drop off after that

    It would be far better shown if I actually ran my parser during a WF. I should try it sometime so I can see how much weight everything is pulling as far as whats contributing healing or how much stuff is hitting for. I always forget about it, I'll see if I remember it next time I do a good barding WF.
