    All Bard spell songs have a range of 8. The reduction to 6 was quite unintended.

    Initial bard mastery draft had -invigorate- spell song with a 10 range that was set back to 8 with the other 5 at a revision after some potential for abuse was revealed.


    The beneficial spell songs have always had a longer grace period than the damage spell songs so party members can run out of range for a few moments without the effect immediately dispelling.

    A bard initiating the damaging spellsongs is engaging in an active and aggressive combat role and are less forgiving than the beneficial counterparts.
