Bard can equip both blau and joyeuse as well as full hecatomb. While they can't equip homam they CAN augment their 3 expansion items just like we do our mirke anwig and tassets, and they can add dusk to the hands and feet creating a seriously wicked melee. Bard dagger skill is B-, but unlike our lame sword skill theirs is C-, and if they have 8 merits in both sword and dagger they can throw out some serious damage. It's damn scary what a bard can do when given the right DD gear and using evisceration. Blau/joytoy, full heca and peacock charm, expansion trio and dusk, rajas/toreadors, charger, swift and brutal/suppa, hollow and pixie, cuchulain's mantle and cuchulain's belt. They get it all
, AND they come with their own double songs so they (and you) will always be buffed.

Blau/Joyeuse, they can equip Mandau.
They can get 25% TP haste without hard to obtain items: Turban(5), Goli Body(4), Dusk(3), Dusk(2), Haiadate(5), Swift(4), Angel Lyre(2).
The don't need Cuch really, their relic cape has 7 Accuracy.
KOsode, AF+1 legs(8str/dex), and hecatomb makes for one mean evisceration setup.
They can fulltime marches on themselves for 20% haste.
The only problem is that 220 sword skill really hurts if you don't merit it (and I haven't). 256 Dagger with merits is manageable but compared to the 225 (suppa), it can be problematic.
To give you an example, my Bard currently uses:
And in Dyna Bubu, even pianissimo a madrigal on myself and using crab sushi, I was still sitting around 70% Acc on some harder stuff.
However, in Einherjar with Pizza I am comfortable with my Acc.
