Anything I should know? For future reference
Maybe something I should get in advance.

As much +CHR equipment as possible, all the HQ instruments that you can afford... and therapy for the inevitable nervous breakdown. ;-)

It rubs the fewell on its skin or else it gets the thwack again.

Brd usually levels pretty fast, buy your songs far in advance. I couldnt get mages ballad 2 for a few days and I was past the level to use it by 10-20 levels by the time I actually did manage to get it lol

You still get invited but it's like an rdm turning up with no refresh or something, kinda embarassing.

Hope you like pulling! Bard is a lot of fun, but +CHR and Mary's Horn will be your best friend through the leveling process.

Hmmm seems skilling song and wind are simple yet rather boring......
And do I need to use a harp to level string?

HQ march, minuet, madrigal, lullaby, elegy at the very least. I have one for every song that has an instrument (excluding military harp...) and I so rarely use any but those five plus storm fife, I probably shouldn't take them with me everywhere.

Although, I'd hate to be caught with my pants down, even if someone didn't notice they were missing an extra 2 HP on paeon 12 or whatever we're up to now.

You do need a harp to skill string, but it's only useful for a bigger radius on ballad (outside of assault if you have storm fife) and lullaby. My personal outlook on lullaby radius is that if I'm sleeping so many mobs that radius is an issue, I'd rather the ones I do hit actually be sleeping.

And minne potency, I suppose... for the blus. And etudes, if you're ever so inclined...

Okay, I take it back. You probably should skill string. Besieged and finale are great for it.
