    So I'm back and I've a tamer who's just capped a G/dragon. I've got two Sampires running. My mage is dusty and my bard is in *pieces*.

    But yknow, I'm kinda of bored of my fave tamers and sammies and I'm not even looking at my archers...and barding is so...foreign to me.

    I've got this chiv/peace/disco/archer/bushi mongrel in training and i just keep thinking, what should I do with her?

    I've never been able to decide, hence the mishmash. She once had magery and to be honest I'm mostly toying with the idea of making her a pure bard / mage bard / tamer bard as I'm darn sick of archers!

    What do you guys suggest? I've read sooo much about the other professions i can't bare to do any more trawling the forums all over again!

    I'm looking for somebody enthusiastic to set me a challenge to complete a powerful fun bard template. My skills are below:


    My think was uber damage from Bushi/Chiv/Disco and peace meaning less running/healing and for spawn control. Was raising chiv for Holy Light spam to deal with small spawn critters too...

    Thankyou for all your opinions and ideas - please excuse my laziness, i am after all a stupid warrior :p

    Edit - I could do an archer really, if someone can make the template work! I just hate being so vulnerable as an archer - run stop shoot, run stop heal peace disco and repeat...

    i run

    chiv (like 70)

    then i use balanced bows and carry pots.

    also use the bushy heal.
    suit is high resists with LMC and MR

    so i can spam lightning strikes and specials.
    course use honor all the time as well.

    i like it.
    its a fun template.

    as for what your doing, peace seems to be kind or a odd ball thing to have on a melee toon.
    cause as soon as ya hit the mob the peace is broke off.
    so it seems kinda a waste.

    so lets see.
    you dont wanna do a bard tamer.
    you dont wanna do a mage bard.
    you are reluctant to make a archer bard.

    yet you want a bard template, and one that will challange you.

    that is a bit of a poser, eh.

    im assuming since your even talking bard that this is a pvm template.

    have ya thought of any of the other magic skills maybe?
    mystic spellweaving bard gargoyl?

    i dont know.
    im just throwing that out there.

    roll up, disco the mob, then drop a few rising colosals on it, then a couple word of deaths?

    with what ya all ready have id go for a top shelf disco archer.
    making the bows and suit alone will be a challange.

    bout all i can recomend

    Why would the suit be hard?

    Thanks for your input.

    A little bit of me wants somebody to say "make a peace disco tamer" :p

    Peace is lovely crowd control for an archer who cannot parry the ankle biters at a spawn ^^
