    As a protector, Water Bards are impossible for us to beat. If anyone has a strategy of taking down one as a protector, I'd like to hear you. Because unless the protector can somehow get the first shot off before their stun resistant shield is up, it's game over for protector. After that it's just a matter of time before our mana is gone and we're pretty much helpless.

    I agree, but i'm still wondering what most people struggle with.






    Side Note: The only thing I see that bards have an advantadge in is sleep, and their water shield imo.

    If your marble its harder to kill a bard as they don't have much stun lock, Diamond Protectors on the other hand have that advantage.

    in my opinion .... human divine priest with divine shield , sharded and geared for full hp >than water bards at surviving and healing . with healers in a 6v6 its mostly about which sides healer dies 1st , water bards once ganked will go down super fast since the shield can take limited hits though ive yet to see a good one in arena , the usual tactics are to kill priest/bards together than focus on any vamps present

    and stunning water bards ?? really , unless the bard is stupid enough to see a 50 ton stone block hurling towards him and still doesnt pop his shield , you cant stun them .. the water bard shield provides immunity from stuns /silences but i believe it lasts for 15 ish secs and takes around 6 hits before it goes poof

    if you compare a water bard with divine priest you find , water is like a bait/dps any 1 target and pop a sleep in 1st and 3rd round , priest is healer /bait .. the better bait is the one who survives longer given ther both going to get ganked anyways

    shouldn't compare water bards with priest. water bards are considered a dps class by itself in pvp and if compared with, it should be against glacial priests. It should be more of light bards vs priest, of which a divine priest is probably a better healer.

    Priests just die at the beginning. I'm sorry, but our shields are SO NOT ENOUGH for surviving multiple stun lock and silences.

    elfs cant take stunlocks , its why i said human divine ... and i compared human divine with water bard because their primary role is NOT healing... its surviving the ganks and being a bait , they survive till the opponents healer goes down than its almost a certain win

    and water bards have best survival out of all bards and same goes for divine priests so thats why i compared the two , they are both not going to be able to heal anyways due to being ganked/stuned/silenced unless ofc a team is stupid enough to ignore the big light radiating from behind a pillar ...

    Bard == dps or buffs. Divine priest == healer. Glacial priest == water mage xD. Some ppl prefers to go in 3v3 with healer and some ppl prefers buffs/dps.
