Hi, I'm sure this has been asked before, but when doing a search I couldn't find a thread on this. Probably just didn't look long enough, but anyhow... I'm making a bard with all four bard skills. (No point in arguing how useless peacemaking can be, it's a concept that I'm sticking with.) I'm aiming for 120 in six skills, so that leaves me with 240 to toy around with. For me, magery is a given, so that leaves me with just one more skill. Hence: 120 Music 120 Provo 120 Disco 120 Peace 120 Magery 120 Fun and games I'm not planning on doing much solo-work with this char, so it's mainly a support char. I'm thinking that meditate would allow me to heal and spam EVs quicker, but... I was hoping to get more out of the char. If I went with Eval Int instead, then I could offer even more crowd control with paralyze, and actually help doing damage. So - long story long - could I pull this off without meditation? With 40 lmc and say 15 MR? Anyone running a mage without meditation who can share their experiences? Also, just a side-question that popped into my mind, can you soulstone spellweaving to a char that hasn't done the spellweaving quest? I know it's very mana-intensive, but would be a very fun addition to the template, and if you don't just use it for WoD then it isn't as mana-heavy as many people say.
