well, say what you will, but i like the new changes. i strolled out on one of my lesser used bards the other night and roamed that land looking for trouble. in total i clocked in several hours of play and i tried to make it as varied as i possibly could. and in every situation the new bard masteries came out working good. i did find that for smaller easier stuff by the time i got a disco off and dropped a EV or 2 and then went to use the masteries the critter was usually dead allready. so the disco ones i think are only looking to be good in bigger game hunting. and the provo and peace ones are more group orientated so i only tinkered with them a little, not much, ill try to get a group together this weekend and test them a but more. as for the changes in damage to the disco spells and the bard timer..... LOVEING IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! i was giggling like a school girl with how fast i was able to fire off my bard attempts. so far i havnt found anything that i dont like about the new changes. oh, and i havnt gotten to test them out on the T map guardians yet to confirm that they are working on them, but as with the peace and provo ones ill try to do it this weekend and report back. cheers!
