    the best bard suit.

    actually its really easy.
    i imbue up suits all the time for my guys.
    and they are cheap cheap.

    basically i go into shame and farm up stuff to melt down into relics.
    then roll those into making the suit.

    but for the suit ya just need to imbue up a 100 LRC suit with 40 LMC and 2 MR on each piece.
    then sink the rest into resists to give ya 70 across the board.

    then once your done that ya have to decide what your gonna do with your ring and watch and what is in your hands.

    personally i go one of two routes for this.
    either i imbue up a nice FC/FCR set with SDI and +magery.
    then i equip a nice SC mage weapon to use.
    the repeater fully spec'd out is nice and a distance weapon to boot.

    the 2nd choice is to do the same but to since the baubles into SDI and then the mage book into SDI as well (like a General Invasion book or a scrappers) and then a nice shield to match it all up.

    so basically you are left to decide if you want the SDI to drop bombs or the +mage to use a mage weapon.

    and look into a pack of Vollems.
    specially if your 'team' includes a tamer, cause he can res them for ya.
    and they are just like having 2 more nightmares in your party.
    they deal nice damage and are spell casters.

    every one of my bards carries 2 of them.
    wouldn't trade them for all the money in game.

    hope that helps ya?

    oh, a couple pieces that i commonly use in my suits;
    1. runebeatle carapace
    2. hat of the kaja
    3. a nice robe like the conj or condemned one, something with some spice to it
    cheers!

    yup yup!

    it has nice resists and has high SDI on it.

    and its cheap.

    usually in around 500k give or take a couple k

    if you can imbue 11 or 12 SDI on your ring and watch and then have 12 on your hat that gets ya to 36'ish then you get a nice 30 SDI spellbook and your nice and high for PVM.

    the suit is dependent on what skills exactly you have!
    example 1
    music 120
    provo 120
    peace 120
    disco 120
    magery 120
    eval 120

    now this template is ok except 1 thing you have no regen therefor you would want as much regen int/mana increase items as possible

    example 2
    120 music
    120 disco
    120 provo
    120 magery
    120 eval
    120 med

    now with this suit sdi/ and other mods maybe


    you either build the suit around the skills or you build the skills around the suit or a combination of the 2

    so its real hard to say USE this or USE that!

    and play style can influence all this to

    hope that made sense (almost confused myself)

    with the additions on the upcoming publish you will be able to switch masteries with a 10 minute wait between switching.

    and why would you need arties when you can make stuff that is 10 x better?

    ill pick my custom imbued suit every day over a suit made with arties.
    and pretty much all arties have crap resists, so making a suit around them sucks.

    have a look for a post that is up on the main bard board about the turn in bard suit that was imbued and added onto.
    that is how ya make a bard suit.

    with your reliance on arties you sound like your a old returning player who hasnt been converted (or perverted) to the new imbuing system.

    come to the dark side.

    Take the virtuoso suit and add LMC,LRC, and mana regen or mana increase etc and you have a nice suit just remember one of the pieces needs mage armor on it!
