I know they have a self blessing heal called solo of light but I was hoping if any1 has info if bards will get a single-target heal? I would like to heal my pet from time to time and people in my party. I think it is a balance to keep priests useful but um I really want it :3 what do you think? Will it make them OP? Aoe and self heal is enough? Please give your feedback~!

    I want a single heal as well but at the moment I don't think Bards get any even as a Light build. Maybe a small single-target heal over time or something.

    Instead of a solo heal, they should make our AoE heal/buffs affect pets as well. Afterall, didn't they say that there is a large emphasis on pets in this game?

    Aoe and buffs that effect pet would be super nice~! But I would still like a single target heal to have that freedom. Oh maybe even a PWI Ironheart kinda heal?! That would make the bard overtop. Or make solo of light free target :D Whichever is easier for the devs ^-^

    I think a single target heal would be severely un-necessary. Yes, it would be nice, but that is what a priest is for. Priests don't get the buffs/cleanse that bards do and we don't get single target heal. It works well this way imho. I would like the aoe heal to include pets tho.

    I totally agree, a bard is a flash buffer, I am not sure if added +heal would be added help, might be an idea, but I have 1 water and 1 light/wind hybrid, i dig the water bard, allot of critical hits!

    My light/wind bard is better help in the instances, forgot to mention that too.

    Again, I don't think giving them a direct heal would be good, I would rather they add a confusion song, like sleep, makes all the skills backwards. a Bard is a chanter! Confusion, flash heal, song of paralyzing, song of silence, song of the charmed (where you take control of plyer for 10 seconds) this is what a bard does! and more! A song of life too, where if you chant your enemy! with every strike he gives you life instead of death. What do you fellow bards think?

    OP is OP

    A Bard is fine as it is. The only thing missing is a "OHCRAP" skill, like Rocky/Priest AoE heal

    I dont see the harm in giving bards single target seeing as they are flagged as healers at lvl 30. so why not give them single target heal

    Bards already have uber buffs and an aoe heal. Along with some damage. If they get a single target heal then priests would be obsolete. Be happy with what the bard has. Its amazing imo.

    I'd be happy with just letting out AoE heal heal pets as well.. and maybe letting our light mastery increase our healing ability? :<

    Honestly I don't think bards have a need for single target heals, However I would also like it if their AoE heal would also affect pets because it does get a little annoying having your pet die on a boss >.<

    ...

    Given that our pets are poorly written/executed sub-routines running both client- and server-side ... no, I do not believe they do. They don't understand anything else, so why would they be able to understand this?

    Likely, neither do most of our fellow players. Does this mean the magical effect of the 'songs' shouldn't affect them either?

    Just curious, don't we get a single target DoT heal at 55? Hymn of Baptism?
