<DIV>I know we have the 5 bubbles under our health that I assume fill up when you play certain songs. My question is say you play Rousing Tune (1 bub), Merciless Melody (2 bub), and Songster's Luck (2 bub). Does this mean that no one else can buff anyone in the group? In other words does this fill up everyones 5 bubbles or just yours? Am I making sence? :smileywink:</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Ive only played warrior types up till now and never realy payed any attention to my bubbles. Im not sure if they are effected by other peoples spell or not. </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Also, are Bards anything like in EQ1 where you have to keep hitting the songs you want one at a time over and over in a row? In EQ2 can you just hit 3 buttons for the songs above and your done until you want to change them?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>            Thanks for the help in advance.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>                          The Woodpile</DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

The 5 concentration slots are yours only. They are YOUR maintained spells.There is no "twisting" in EQ2, most of yoru songs will have a 3-10 minute timer on them.

<DIV>Bria's Stirring Ballad (power regen) and Performer's Talent (personal AGI and magic resist) are 3 minute duration songs. This sounds like a lot, but it's not. You will constantly be replaying these songs. BsB takes a slot, PT does not. You will use these two all the time. Period. You just will, get used to it.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Rousing Tune (AGI/STR/STA buff) has a 10 minute timer, and takes 2 conc slots. You will keep this up forever and ever. The only reason you'll stop using it is if you get a replacement song.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Everything else is adjustable.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>If you've used up 4 slots, and Rousing Tune has started flashing, meaning it will drop within 30 seconds, you'll try hitting the button to re-sing it, and discover you cannot. If a two-slot song is already playing, and you only have one or no slots avaiable, you cannot sing the song, as it takes 2 slots from the beginning, and the system doesn't recognize that you're already using two for that specific song. If you have 2 free slots, then when you actually do replay the song, it replaces the two slots already used with a new timer, but you need the two free slots to even start to sing it.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Hope these few hints help someone.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Welcome to the world of the songspinners and storytellers.</DIV>
