It’s no secret that the Bard class needs some major fixes. Bards have been the brunt of most class jokes for a while now, and in many raid groups, being asked to go Bard for the evening almost seems like a punishment. None of the other support souls have this negative connotation surrounding them. What gives?
A lot of things, according to most players. The Bard’s lack of scaling, lack of interesting abilities, and extreme repetition rank among the important issues that need to be addressed. With patch 1.9 around the corner, many hoped that Trion would finally begin an overhaul of the Bard soul. In hopes of that overhaul, the community has created this thread on the official PTS forum.
