This isn't a "one gear fix all" question. More that i am still new to the job and wish to learn.
Ok, I don't see much 75 bard's using relevant ele staff + ele grip in thier debuff/ sleep setup.. surely this is more benificial than the +1 chr grips, no?

I camp kings a lot and have recently ding'ed 75 Bard if that helps picture the situation

thnx BRD gods /bow

earth/light grip are definitely best for elegy/lullaby, yes. i'd imagine most people don't use them, because of the cost/inventory space, or because they're really not particularly amazing (but still pretty nice).

I've converted to using Light Grip for Finale/Lullaby/Requiem, Earth Grip for Elegy/Lightning Threnody, and Fire Grip for Ice Threnody (yes, I carry a Fire Staff just for that).

Does it make a huge difference? Honestly, I couldn't tell you. I haven't noticed any huge improvement or change in my landing rate, but regardless I'll probably keep using them (out of contrived superstition that "they're helping!" if nothing else :x).

Excuse my noobness lol, mind explaining this one to me (and other noobies^^)

So for Ltgn. Threnody, i'd use Earth(hq) Staff + Earth Grip by your example - only, i wouldn't know why lol

Im not mathematically/ statistically inclined - but if someone in the community was, would be great to hear from you
Nevermind, this would be asking too much

lullaby is light based.
elegy is earth based.
ltng threnody is earth based
ice threnody is fire based


look at the colored icons next to the spell name. this tells you what element the spell is.

also, i've done a very elaborate discussion on my opinion on how magic accuracy works in another recent post in the brd forums. the short answer however, is no one knows.

you use the staff/grip based on the element of the spell (or song). threnedies are the element that is strong against the element that it lowers resist for, not the element it actually lowers the resist of. you can tell what element any spell is by the color of the icon next to it in the spell menu.
