I can not think of any bard template that works in pvp in any sort of role. at 120 music and discord despair does 10 dmg for 11 mana upkeep... which in itself is too little. Strangle and bleed both do close to that damage for MUCH MUCH less mana So maybe you can stack them? No, not really because any sort of mage can not use the bard skills effectively. Archer then? Not really... at only point that despair would be any good is when they are running.. and if you have to stop to cast they are gone. In order to fix this skill some limitation needs to be removed. The casting time and the spell casting interuptions are the worst part.
