    I reviewed all the publish notes and fit them all into one document. Logrus can you confirm this is correct?

    I wanted to verify before answering.

    So Lets see:
    Inspire:
    HCI/SDI: 4 - 16 (Base)
    - +1% Bonus per 10 points in a secondary skill above GM. (So thats up to 22% HDI/SDI for a 4x Legendary Bard) (PvP Cap is still 15% SDI)
    DI = 20 - 40% (Base) + 3% Per 10 points in secondary skill above GM (58% at 4x Legendary)

    Invigorate:
    +2 -> 8 To each stat (Base)
    (4x Legendary = +14)
    Healing 4-16 (Base) , 4xLegendary (10-22)


    Resilience:
    +2->8 to all Regens(Base), (4x Legendary +11)
    Curse Duration Reduction
    10-40% (Base), (4xLegendary 60%)

    Poison Resistance (I won't go into the math for this one but it does scale)

    Preservance:
    Casting Focus 1- 4 (Base) (4x Legendary = 6%)
    DCI 2-16% (Base) (4x Legendary 22%)
    Damage Reduction 2-16% (Base) (4x Legendary 22%)


    Tribulation:
    Bonus damage is no longer physical. Its a flat % of damage taken.
    Duration (5-11 rounds) - 4x Legendary =14 rounds
    Bonus Damge (8 - 32%) Base, 4x Legendary ( 50%)
    Bonus Damage Chance ( 15 - 60%) Base, 4x Legendary (84%)
    HCI/SDI Debuff (5 - 20%) Base, 4xLegendary (32%)



    Despair:
    Duration (5-11 rounds) - 4x Legendary =14 rounds
    Damage (9 - 36) (Base) , 4x Legendary (48)
    PvM Damage Modifier 1.5x
    PvM w/Slayer Damage Modifier 3x
    Strength Reduction (4 - 16) Base, 4x (22) (Subject to modifier for PvM and slayers)



    Bards can use both spell songs in their mastery at the same time. The upkeep cost is combined.

    Each additional bard skill above GM after the mastery skill and musicianship grants -1 to spell song upkeep cost.


    Party spellsongs affect the bard, party members and pets of bard and party.


    Bards can freely cast spells from any school without it interrupting their spellsongs.



    **Couldnt figure out how do do strike through text***

    Hopefully thats clear enough.

    Logrus can you please provide the current costs for each spell song. both initial and upkeep. Also, FYI I think the spell song books need to have these figures updated and probably should check the mouseover help screens for each spells icon while you're at it to be sure it reflects current design.

    BTW, a big THANK YOU for lowering the skill timers on the bard skills AND removing the timers' effects on other non-bard skills.

    In case, no one else has noticed that last part, some of you tamers should now notice you can disco something and immediately lore it. I do alot of disco training of pets and that skill delay had annoyed me everytime.

    The bard spell books are a bit behind in iterations. (Wanted to get it stable first)
    I'll edit this post as soon as I get a chance to go back and look at the mana costs and upkeep costs.
    (I can confirm Tribulation/Despair costs are 11/13)

    Logrus,

    would spell damage increase ever be part of damage calculation for Despair and Tribulation?

    Thanks,

    I'm neither for or against SDI being a part of the bard damage. Though that would probably require some re-balancing of abilities so I wouldn't expect to get to that any time in the near future.

    Logrus,

    Does the new chance to peace/prov/discord % from mastery stack with bonus chance from slayer instruments?

    Also only despair gets damage bonus from slayer instruments right? Tribulation does not get the bonus?

    Mastery %Bonus Chance stacks with slayer bonus.

    Both Despair and Tribulation get bonuses from Slayer instruments.

    Slightly different though.

    Despair damage is 3x when using a valid slayer
    Tribulation damage is 1.5x

    Since questions/answers are collected here for bard masteries ...
    I soon have to put together a suit for my (wannabe) full bard.
    - sdi dont works for the new masterys? (i think, i ve read it here but not shure about)
    - does lmc work?
    - how about fc?
    - When comparing upkeep costs with mr, is it a 1:1 ratio? (before dimishing returns hits in for mr)
    - And since slayer spellbooks working was already mentioned .... so those with mr would fit best?

    Dammned me ... but its fine as i dont have a collection of slayer spellbooks. *g*
    What I wonder is, if there is a difference between slayer and super slayer instruments? (When it comes to damage done with discord masteries)

    unless they changed something and didnt tell us, then they are both the same.
    bard instraments are the only thing that got left out of that big slayer vs super slayer change last year.

    so magic spellbooks, super slayers got nerfed.
    all melee weapons, super slayers got nerfed.
    bard instraments, we are still golden!

    I have to disagree ... actually single slayers got buffed and not the super slayers nerfed. :p

    Besides that .... playing around with the new masteries is fun. Now i only need the patience to train my bards skills fully up.

    i shouldnt have said nerfed.

    its just makes my backpack more cluttered.

    my bards use to carry one of each Flute of Renewal, and my macer's carry a Exiler imbued to each super slayer.

    now if i wanna do optimal i need to carry a ruck sack with 128 different maces in it (thats a exageration)

    so nerfed wasnt the right word.
    it just makes it so my little 8 flute world got more cluttered was all.
