I have been putting off working my bard toon for ages. trying to force myself to work on the toon but have a few questions. Some info 1rst though 1-this is a human toon [would it be better to go elf or gargy?] 2-this is a toon for PVM [who the hell tries to PVP on a bard] 3-i will NOT have pets/taming for this toon 4-the entire guild i am in is factions so i do have access to the faction gear 5-i plan on having all of the bardic skills on the toon which i've allready eaten 115`s for all of them 6-this toon will probably used for solo hunting only 7-for anyone that doesn't know me i lag like hell and need to take an avg of 300+ ping into consideration 8-the account that this toon is on has a 710 skillcap [3-months till 715] now skillwise so far i have 1-music [have eaten a 115] 2-peace [have eaten a 115] 3-provo [have eaten a 115] 4-disco [have eaten a 115] what i also wish to add is 5-ninjitsu [50 for the smokebombs] 6-hiding [prolly will GM it] 7-stealth [40 real+20 from legs] [was thinking stealth up to things,,provo,,then rehide-smokebomb] and on top of that i was thinking possibly 8-magery [and hold a -20 mage weapon x-bow made out of bloodwood] now for armor so far shadow dancer leggings for the +20 stealth faction heart of the lion for the 15% dci the 300 luck mempo atm both ring and bracelet have massive skill bonuses [+13 all bard skills on both] was thinking of adding the faction dci 25% glasses for now getting the faction stormgrips/tally for hci or just imbuing some lrc pieces and imbuing whatever pieces i havent covered yet now,,,also was thinking of using arcane boots as i wont be at 100 lrc for now but i'd like to hear from an experienced full bardic player [if any are out there] on the pros-cons of the setup and what they use as complimentary skills what really is the best race for the template how effective will magery really be without eval/should i just drop it and go with archery? or can the benefit of some magery really help the char after i work up the skills to where they are maxed out i have a 120 imbuer so i can make hci-dci-lmc jewelry later on if need be or would keeping 104 skillpoints extra on the jewelry be a better idea to have more room for the complimentary skills?? How high should i take ninjitsu?Stats,,ect? This isnt a template i`m familliar with and wanted some pointers if anyone can help. Thank you for your time. Paps.
