I made an research before posting and i found this thread
about bard songs from july 2012 (posted here for future references). Unfortunally it's closed so i'm opening a new one.
Actually bards are one of the weakest classes of the game, if not the weakest, and i mean in everything. PvM, PvP, AoE, tank, hitman... in almost everything they're not the 2° best, they're the worst. The exception is the Blade Class, but still not enough to make that class decent.
I revived this nightmare a while ago, when i made an evil bard and compared it to my awesome team with Dorn, Viconia, Edwin, Korgan and Hexxat (that sucks also but still is better than a bard).
For the above reasons, i'm here asking the devs to completly reword the bard class system, or at least improve them to an enjoynable level. I'm not asking for another Kensai/Mage overpowered character, but something that's better than ctrl+q a peasant and elect it as my main char.
Ppl do not need to agree with everything below, but if the improvment of this class is something you member of this community desire, then i would appreciate your vote and support to this idea.
In terms of suggestion i propose:
1° - Change Bard Song maintenance system.
There are many ways to work with the bard song. They could endure x rounds per x levels of the bard after the music end. They could be cast as special abilities as it's done in Neverwinter Nights 2. They could just keep the music on while casting spells, but not while fighting.
The possibilities are many.
2° - Change the Bard Song Cast System.
Give To bards songs a menu options to choose which song to play at each momen based on level and kit. This would make bards more versatile, exactly their main point of existance.
3° - HLA of improved song should be different for each class at least.
As the title says, i would prefer that an jester to not have the same song that an skald when picking the HLA improved song. Also i believe that if HLA song gave immunity to imprisonment spell when being played, the Bard class would be a lot more valuable to any team.
4° - Give Bards exclusive spells.
Not necessary powerful spells, but bard only spells would be nice, and would make the class more valuable for a party.
The option 1 and 2 can be sum to display the opinions toward the enhance of this class. The option 3 displays the opposition to this idea.
, by mistake i posted this on new members area, can you please correct it to "Feature Requests"?
