I would like to understand the rational behind forcibly removing the ability of bard (peace, disco & provo) from the exodus encounter. Frankly I have never been in favor of excluding templates from content and see no justifiable reason for it here. Ok, he is 160 difficulty so you will probably fail and the disco effect is halved, but why not let bards try? Here is a prime example... Last night I partied with a few strangers to do my first Exodus. They were all mystic mages so I thought I would disco the boss and use the bard songs for the party bonus. Almost as soon as we start fighting the party was dropped, strangers don't want to share looting rights... I get it = no use running bard song. Can't discord or peace Exodus so here I am on a 4x120 bard and I am completely useless... Oh I tried a few EV which were instantly dispatched. Devs I ask why? Is Exodus really so weak that a discord would ruin the encounter? Help me understand.
