    Bards don’t have many songs to choose from compared to a mage, so the ones they have should at least be useful

    Lets start from the top:
    Song of Light – Useless since Every client now filters light
    Song of Haste – A quite decent dex buff
    Song of Defense – A strong armor buff, the one buff that is stronger than a mages
    Song of Glory – A weak ass bless
    Song of Cloaking – An AOE hide, the duration is very short though
    Song of Life – An OK heal
    Song of Remedy – An AOE Cure

    Song of Sirens – AoE Paralyze which breaks from damage
    Song of earth, fire, water, air – Attack spells which work quite fine for killing trash mobs
    Song of Fright – AoE fear, which is useless. Bards have peacemaking
    Song of Dismissal – AOE Dispel
    Song Beckon – Summons a wisp…
    Song of Salvation – Does nothing I think

    Suggestions
    Shepard’s crooks are the worst weapon type of all, perhaps make them 2 tiles
    Switch Song of light for a str+ int buff so bards doesnt not have to be complemented by a mage to buff
    Buff Song of Glory to the same level as Song of Haste
    Increase duration of Song of Cloaking
    Turn Song of Sirens to a Paralyze similar to Necro paralyze
    Turn Song of Fright to a magic damage song which isnt protectable against to give Bards something in PvP since all other songs can be protected against. Make it a little weaker than the element songs so it wont the be chosen song for all occasions.
    If you want to keep song of Beckon a summon song, Make it summon wisps that cast strong single target spells so bards have a way to kill bosses, Maybe holy spells?
    Turn Song of Salvation to a curse-type Song or maybe something completely unique for Bards
    Since bards can no longer casts songs from hidden Song of dismissal is most likely to only dispel yourself and not your target since they can run, hide etc in order to avoid it, but you cant avoid it yourself. Maybe remove the self dispel function as it’s probably never going to be used to dispel self, maybe keep it so it still dispels your own party or it will be too OP

    Would also like to see Bards benefiting from Magic efficiency since atm there’s 0 use of gear for a bard. so if they were to benefit from magic eff and were able to use nag/sages and be able to hit with the staff as well, they could start coming in handy for more than doing Destard champ trash and buffing armor

    Also since they don’t benefit from magic efficiency the duration of songs and buffs are much shorter than those from a mage

    Same here – I think the book is highly outdated and needs a decent re-visit. Bard as it is right now is pretty useless…perhaps the book can change things?

    I also do believe that to make the book not “copyable” is useless – especially taking into consideration the rarity of some of the scrolls, IE song of water

    Also. Your songs are getting interrupted by the tiniest thing. And you still lose your dex
