Bard Changes ● Bard spell songs are no longer interrupted by spellcasting. ● Bards with either provocation or peacemaking mastery can have both their mastery spell songs active at the same time. ● Bards with secondary bard skills above GM (Real Skill) will receive a slightly reduced mana cost for spell song upkeep. ● Bards with a mastery get a 5% bonus to their success chance at using any bard skills, and a 10% bonus to using the skill of their mastery focus. ● All bard songs receive a slight bonus to their effects if the bard has additional bard skills over GM(Real Skill). ● Discordance spell songs are now affected by the target's magic resistance. (PvP and specific Mobs only) ● Despair Damage Tweaked: 1.5x vs Non Player, 3x Damage with Slayer Instruments ● Tribulation: Damage bonus modified by 1.5 with Instruments ● Bard Skill Timeout reduced to 8 Seconds. ● Having a bard mastery reduces all Bard Skill Timeouts by 1 second, and an additional second for the Skill of the mastery focus. These are all great, especially the unexpected +5-10% success bonus and reduction in timeout!
