    Default Improving Bard Motifs

    I believe we need to rework how Motifs are applied. 5 GCDs to apply raid buffs seems too long to me. So I came up with this suggestion:

    Clerics get Decays, Give bards an ability that builds up like decay. This buff builds to somewhere between 10 - 20, if it reaches its max buff then the 5 motifs become Off GCD. If the bard moves before he uses the buff then it resets.

    Ultimately, I'd just like to see the 5 motifs reworked in some fashion for it to be easier to apply. This is the only alternative I could come up with other than make them perma OGCD (which is definitely a no-no.)

    There was already a sneak peak at PAX that showed that motifs are refreshed via finishers (I missed it so correct me if that is wrong, just going by what I heard in game) in SL.

    Yea SL's Barding on the run is gonna be a game changer in the bard soul. Motifs have been shaved to 3 and they refresh on finishers. I'm gonna play my bard till his lute breaks! In not sure how much the tactician soul had to do with any of this tho.

    Oh wow, great. I missed that part. I watched the livestream, but I noticed that his motifs were falling off somewhat frequently and peeps were reminding him to redo them. I missed him mentioing that the finisher refreshed tho. Will be a great improvement.

    is there any news however on things such as:

    1. The distance / range on cadence/cadenza?
    2. The initial duration of the motifs? Still 30 secs?

    Thanks Trion for those on-the-run abilites and the refreshing
