Bards artifacts?

    I am contemplating making a new suit for my bard. What I am having trouble with is what artifacts should I be trying to incorporate?

    the template:
    120 provoke
    120 discord
    120 music
    120 magery
    100 eval
    100 med
    100 resist

    As you might notice, I am going for lots of skill + to fit this and even try to cover the -35 resist from protection.

    What artifacts are a must for your suits and why did you pick them>?

    music/disco or mage/eval mark of travesty, skill bonus scrappers, maybe do the skill bonus talisman. Rest of the skill prolly on jewels for best effect.

    if you are going to put skills on jewels I recommend mage,eval,med,etc and not the bar skills so you get max effect from masteries

    With this thread I was kind of fishing for what others were doing on their bards.

    What artifacts did YOU use?

    on my home shard my bard has an Orny and a Staff of the Magi and of course a Pendant of the Magi.

    but on all other shards my bards dont have any artys.

    or....... kasa of the Raja maybe on a few of them?
    that coupled with a rune beetle carapace...

    then a suit built around those 2 pieces.

    I am new to the scene being a returning player and just started working on my bard. I like to figure out gear choices to meet the stated requirements so I gave it a shot. Please don't flame me if i miss something obvious, like I mentioned before I just came back.

    Mark of Travesty-Magery: +10 Magery, +10 Eval,SR3,MI8,HPR3, 8/5/11/20/15

    Tome of Lost Knowledge: +15 Magery, +8int, SDI 15, LMC 15

    Mana Phasing Orb-Mana Regen: MR1, DCI 5, LMC 6, LRC 10

    Lieutenant of RBG Sash(Rep): +5int, MR2, LRC 10

    Ring: +10 Eval, +10 Med, FC1, FCR3, SDI 6

    Bracelet: +15 Resist, +10 Med, FCR3, SDI 12, +3 int

    Shield: Spell Channeling, FC1, DCI 15, RPD 15, LR 50%

    Armor: 4-5pc Barbed Leather*(hands, legs, arms, chest, neck*)
    -4pc need 3LRC (20%) imbues, 2 LMC(5-8%) Imbues, MR/MI and resist imbues for the rest.
    *4pc is using Pendant of the Magi: +10int, MR3, SDI 5, LMC 10, LRC 30

    Getting the resists you want will be tough with 4pc barbed vice 5.

    Totals with 4pc: SDI 42, LMC 41, LRC 110, MR 14, FC2, FCR6, DCI 20.

    The skills totals i figured if you account only has 700 max vice 720. If you have 720 you can drop the Mark of Travesty and go with what Poo said with Kasa of the Raj-In: SDI 12, 12/17/21/17/17 resists, for extra resists and good SDI boost.

    Just my attempt at making it work Hope this is helpful in some kind of way.

    I run a Discord necro mystic and fare really well with him

    80 (105) necro
    110 (120) ss
    120 myst
    100 (120)focus
    120 music
    120 disco
    50 (85) magery

    with some efileds, disco, colossus, animate dead, invis, wither, ss for mana leech in wraith and alot of sdi, there isnt much I cant solo.

    Suit consists nearly 100% of artifacts, but resists are all mid 60's or capped:

    bloodwood spirit tali (necro and ss)
    luck garb
    luck soles
    (with luck statue im at 450ish?)
    lb sash
    quiver of infin
    protector of battlemage
    kelp leggings
    midnight bracers
    stitchers mittens
    Runic mempo with great resists and lrc
    crystaline ring
    tome of lost knowledge
    1/2 replica shield, but at spawns ill usually run with prot and use pots

    I am currently stuck on a 700 cap, hence the low magery. I also lower necro and ss if I want to run high eval/magery for some better offense spells for some peerless battles.
    Can also trade out disco for area peacing at spawns while wither spamming
