    Instruments, these should have to be armed (2 handed) to play and so should be visible to other players when armed.

    I'd also like bagpipes.

    I tell you the truth.

    Bagpipes! OMG I would love that..... but could you imagine the ghastly wail of that when you "fail" ...... *shudders*.....

    I think instruments should be "optional" to hold.... since I personally would rather hold my spellbook when fighting..... since I can do more damage with that. But would like the option to hold my instrument when I'm playing my Bard in more of an "RP" sense. Course I'd also like to be able to "dance" and such and visibly bow and salute in the EC like you used to in the 3d client.

    I'd also like to have a Horn as well... something along the french horn style and sound.

    I'd like to be able to play a different song once in a while.

    BTW, tambourines can easily be played with one hand.

    Spell book while slapping a tambourine on your thigh. Bull Horn or Cowbell solo handed. For macers a hollowed out club or bassoon. Split blade for sword and fencer with a tuning fork sound. Archer is easy. Already a stick with a string, Gourd Bow or flutes with fletching. Huge neck harness hung kettle drum with parry bonus. Numbchuckles for the SE crew. Two handed mace weapon that steals their sound from the Blueman Group.

    Yes I miss the 3rd dawn dancing. Just add in the Teabag Monkey Stump steps for the PVPers. For lesser CHAT noise.

    Untill shackles are added to the code mage desk all great ideals go on the list. Fold up that printed list and you can level out three legged couch.

    you going to allow properties on instruments? or would that defeat the object? Bards fighting in pvp should not have the benefit of properties from spell books or weapons?

    :facepalm: One of the dumbest ideas yet. When instruments can have the same mods as everything else in the game that can be held then come back with this.

    If you would allow them to have mods like fishing poles, those should automaticly get replenish charges. With an advanced sound/music system you could use harpsicord scrolls and/or dawns music gear as additional resource for making replenishing instruments. That way you would play part of that song/music when playing that instrument. You could get those mods when you craft them with runic dovetail saws. Other than fishing poles, it should be possible to roll slayer propertys as well. (Though to keep the existing balance, slayer bonus and except bonus should not add. Only the higher one should apply.)
    Thinking about it, this might be a project big enough for one of the future theme packs. :D

    What a great idea.
    If a bard dies in fel during a spawn, they should be punished with atleast 60min statloss. Unless they are in faction, then they should be punished with only 59minutes.
    I think blacksmiths should be able to smith runic items using normal hammers, at desp champ alter, when the champ is us :)

    Driving their GD into the front lines of the enemy like an old plow horse. Don't forget the whip clutched in the teeth graphics.

    Should be no casting or use of magic words by the user while music is playing on a flute.

    How about if they hold the instrument they get some form of bonus? I don't know how many people are mufti-class but I am and this would totally negate my archer bard. Now as long as I could not hold the instrument and keep line of site and keep them peaced or provo'd or disco'd that would be okay, but seems a lot. :( I am not for it being a must have.

    Maybe the devs could add chanting for the bards that would be like Gregorian type chants. This way we could play 'pure' bards.
