View Full Version : Lets hope they fix the fight problem

Ok, high stats have been nerfed, the ability to create high stats has been nerfed. But neither of these issues where the problem. The problem is that lvl50 bards were consistently casting a level 10 song. Why would they use precious concentration on this? Don't they get any new songs? At level 50 they should be the best of the best, a quaint little song they learned 40 levels ago should just be a fond memory. But alas, none of that is true...and people are now crying nerf, that this is considered a nerf also makes me sad, I had such high hopes for this game. There are several ways of fixing this. They can make the upgrades so good that the extra boost from the level 10 song just looks silly. They could look at the other songs a level 50 has and make sure they are always a better choice then a level 10 song. The could restore the stat-bonuses to what they were, heck they could make them better than they were. There are many things they could do, lets just hope they sort it out. But as a community lets make sure we are asking for the right things, I personally want my old spells that have upgrades to become fond memories. Casting the same song 3 times, using 3 concentration, is just not my idea of a fun/challenging/interesting game. <div></div>

<P>Agreed.</P> <P>I don't want to use 3 slots on stat buffs as well.</P> <P>You are right : stats like agi and str need to be more effective again.</P>

Is this a bug? i see nothing in the update notes about this. How can you be sure this is intentional? <div></div>

I don't know if it ever was intentional or not. But Moorgard has posted in another thread that they are looking at it. I was hopeing to utilize as much of the precious attention we are getting from the devs. If you check the thread it appears they are going for the quick-fix and simply re-introducing stacking, although a bit more limited than before. Hopefully they will make sure stacking is also available to dirges & with any luck provide the movement buff to troubs. I just hope this raises enough awarness of bard-spells so that eventually they will do something about some of our very underpowered spells, health/mana regen, haste & damage procs <div></div>

<div></div>I have been playing 4 stat songs & bria for a long long time.  As nice as Swan Song and Minstrel Fortune are, I just cannot sing any other songs other than the 4 stat songs.  Have tried different songs and almost everyone wanted 4 stat songs and bria.  (They want bria mostly because they don't know it sucks ;p) Personally, I would like to be able to do more variety of songs.   Doing 4 stat songs at all time is no fun.  All other utility songs are not "important" in a sense. I don't mind stat songs not stackable if actually 1 song is as good as all 4 total (say at 50 the uber Raxxyl).  Then we will see more different combination of songs.  We might do fire or cold resist songs when killing some mobs; and do debuff at some tough mobs; and mezz when things go wrong.... You can argue that I can do all this already.  But my group would not be happy if they don't see their STR over 300. Oh... and I don't mind to be able to kill lowest green 2 arrows so that I can solo some quests before mobs turn grey   <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> <div></div><p>Message Edited by AllosZeldo on <span class=date_text>03-23-2005</span> <span class=time_text>08:51 AM</span>
