    The Martian build is brilliant. Loving it so much. I wish I had a little more healing/survivability during combat, but thats a small complaint considering! Love it.

    Been questing along with Martian, just dinged 51 this afternoon. It's easy to play, kills anything I've faced so far, and seems practically indestructible as far as normal grinding goes. I can usually solo three or so mobs with zero health loss. I'd solo more, but I'm finding it hard to get them to stay in a bunch and not run back to their original spots lol.

    I also have a problem with the survivability/ healing. Any suggestions on that? I try using the curative core, but that doesn't always work. I only have this problem with 3+ mobs

    Just one question. Why are you using RS in the bard build? HP isn't an issue and NB will bring the same stuff for 5 points while giving more dps. Yeah a bards job isn't "dps" that is dps' job BUT it just seems that if you can get the same buff with a greater dps benefit that is better than nothing.

    Also just a little quibble. You say "fervor if NO ARCHON". You mean Cloro right?

    Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorius triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

    rs or nb for bard is just preference, shadow shift is really nice to have when you are running around doing mechanics which is typically what bards do.

    I am used to barding. A bard doesn't need to run around for mechanics any more or less than other roles. Hamstringing performance to get a crutch seems off. If I did RS instead of NB in BD it would be darn silly. If I said "I need the port" people would say "pay attention to your screen". Same seems to apply here to me.
