I am slowly discovering the strengths and weaknesses of different classes in this game.
In Icewind Dale I liked the Felicia bard character, but after some playing there, I decided I liked the open world of Baldur's gate more than the more linear story line of IWD for now, so I started a new BG campaign with a bard based on Felicia (took her picture and name).
I saw the Skald kit, and it seems to me that her chanting is pretty strong: in a party of six, when the other five members are fighting, each of them doing +2 to damage alone makes the skald dealing 10 damage per turn through chanting, and that is even without the extra To Hit modifier taken into account.
So only if she can deal more than 10 damage herself (which equals 1d6 + 6.5), chanting will be better than fighting. (When she levels up to do so much damage, her chanting skills will also improve though?)
Do I interpret this ability correctly?
