I finally got my bard skills done, Mage is still in the works, but 115 with jewels and I am bouncing between SW (if I can get a circle) and med/eval (whatever Im in the mood for). I can take on some junk but still learning the ropes. Thinking of maybe trying out my tame skills too just havent pulled it out yet. Issue is healing... Where are you hunting with your bards? I like to solo, Id like a challenge, but not a death patrol.
