hello everyone, wondering how many bard's out there actually melee in a party?
I'am now a level 32 bard/whm and every party I have been in I have drawn my sword and joined in fights...never had a complaint from pt members but I don't seem to see any threads with bards ingaging in fights and if not, why?. As for food I use meat kabobs in Pt's and still do my songs without missing a beat. Do bards fight or just stand back and cast songs? what is the best weapon of choice for a bard? I have used a dagger at lower level but now using a sword for awhile now and doing half decent damage, my sword is capped right now but dagger has fallen behind...should I concentrate on dagger and bring it back to wear it should be?
My next question, songs!! do bards check with pt members as to what song they would prefer or you just use your judgement? I use my judgement and my standard songs for melee is acc/def and ballad for mages...should I use different song besides def for melee? thank you for your time..cheers
