Since I got back to UO I have been able to get my character set up. I have a good armor and my bard skills are 110 with a ring bringing them to 120... However.... Either the bard professional has changed quite a bit or I simply for one reason or another can't play a bard anymore, something that I have been doing forever. It seems that I fail very, very often on high end monsters. Can anyone help me in any way for me to improve my playing with my bard? For exemple, an exceptional instrument was all you needed to be effective. Do I really have to start using slayers and super slayer instruments now? What about macros? It takes forever now to use the bard skill on a repetitive basis and if you try to rush it it takes even longer. Anything that I can do to improve on that? Once again, thank you for your help on how to improve my playing with my bard.
