    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.

    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)

    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.

    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
