Guide Link:

These were originally my internal notes on how Bard DPS mechanics worked, but I guess they became a guide at some point.

Update Notes:
  • Fixed some out of date references to bugs, such as amending Ballad of the Hero's critting situation or Ready to Exploit's buff being corrected to its expected 50% value (not that most people care about that feat).
  • Changed the module to the correct module (no change to general function).

    Hi @rjc9000, thank you for this great guide I will use it.

    Now that devs are working on fixing the bard, I will be back on my bard.
    I stopped playing it when they introduced the bug that playing ballad cancel elemental song.

    My play style is very similar to your Superstar Build.

    Personnally I keep the build for AoE and play Ballad of the Witch, like you said special AoE setup is not necessary when mobs are dying too fast.
