Is the bard song nerf in 2.1 intentional?
I'm a little surprised no one else has asked about this.
BG:EE 1.3 and IWD:EE have an un-nerfed bard song that has a good range and is easy to keep cast on the whole party at all times.
BG:EE 2.1 has gone back to the old vanilla nerfed bard song range, where it is no more than 10 in-game feet, and constantly winks out on party members while walking around, even when the bard is right behind the suddenly unbuffed character.
This is very familiar annoying behavior of the bard song to me from the vanilla game. One of the things I loved about the EE's was that they made the bard song range very solid and easy to use.
Was going back to the old behavior intentional? If so, why? Or, was this an accident of upgrading that can be fixed in a future patch?
