Thread: Ranged Bard

  1. Default Ranged Bard

    I still have my fixed skills available and thinking about toying with ranged weapons. What Bard spells will be useful besides Tonis? Do any of our spells (songs) add to ranged AS (ie., 1007/425). Any other info would be helpful.


    Thanks in advanced

    Bards make excellent archers. They can do anything really.

    411 is a super helpful for your arrows.

    And 425 and 1007 both work as well

    I think with enough air lore and Tonis going you can fire aimed eye shots with a longbow in 1 second.

    The ranged review also indicates sonic bows are coming

    I hope so! I asked about this in the Bard subforum on the officials.

    I was actually toying around with a pure/ranged bard hybrid for when sonic how does something like this look at 57:

    It lets me Focus disrupt with a 2h instrument, has enough perception for archery, and starts picking up air lore as it can.

    Code:
    Armor Use	60	(1.1X)
    Ranged Weapons	114	(2.0X)
    Physical Fitness	57	(1.0X)
    Climbing	20	(0.4X)
    Swimming	20	(0.4X)
    Perception	114	(2.0X)
    Magic Item Use	15	(0.3X)
    Harness Power	57	(1.0X)
    Elemental Mana Control	10	(0.2X)
    Spell Research	87	(1.5X)
        Minor Elemental	30	(0.5X)
        Bard	57	(1.0X)
    Elemental Lore	21	(0.4X)
        Air	21	(0.4X)

    You'll be fine. If I were you, I would switch EMC to MMC and push it up to 24 ranks as points became available, siphoning them out of MIU unless you have a specific item you need it for. This will allow you drain extra mana from charged crystal and blue wands using 1013 as well as increase your ability to shout out of danger with 1040.

    I actually have the EMC so I can send mana to my wizard , but MMC makes sense -- I've mostly gotten my extra mana from wracking but that may mess with my AS too much.
