I have been using my bard to kill the minions and I use the bardic mastery spells of Despair and Tribulation. The problem I have run into is only one bard can cast the spell on the minion at a time. If I try to use Despair or Tribulation I can't cast them till the other person's spell is finished, there is no other kind of spells in the game that have this restriction. Two mystics can cast spell plague on same target, two necros can use strangle, two mages can cast explod, two spellweavers can use wod, but two bards can't cast despair at the same target? Even using despair and tribulation at the same time I am still not doing as much dps as my thrower or mystic mage can do.
