Returning Bard.Follow

Lets see. I havent barded in like 7 months. Or played the game for that matter. However, i'm planning to return soon when everything is all nice and quiet like it should be.

That all said and done, I feel i'm completely out of touch with how to play the game again, or even bard for that matter. Most of the basics are slowly getting back to me in preparation, but i cant help but wonder i'm going to need some catching up for this ever-evolving job. I loved bard, and it's sure to be one of my first 85's again. Maybe after PLD, but still.

Last i quit, i remember having an Osode on me and most of my staves. Unless my friends pillaged my account, those should still be there. So...

1. Can i still use my Osode, or are there new things we use now?
2. Do we still buff a few times inbetween pulls, making pulling our main thing and buffing more of a secondairy thing?

I havent played since level 75 was the hottest thing since mithraflakes for breakfast, so...

3. With Abyssea, what new things are we required to do, do we do now, or do we cast? Still haste? Attack/Acc if needed?
4. Anything else i should need to know when i get back? Still crazy invites? Things i need to get?

Thank you in advance,

Suri

1. I still use Osode. I see many people still use Osode. There IS this new thing called Augur's Jaseran dropped from a timed pop NM in Abyssea - Tahrongi called Ovni (it's a UFO), it beats Osode at Debuffing, but Osode would still be great to use until you get it, (I also see you have SMN, looks like this might be a good piece.^^)

Augur's Jaseran (RA) (EX)
[Body] All Races
DEF:50 INT +13 MND +13 CHR +13
Summoning Magic Skill +10
Light Elemental Magic Accuracy +10
Enmity -5
Lv.79 WHM/BLM/RDM/BRD/SMN/SCH

2. Hmm.. Well in Abyssea, I'm constantly pulling, sometimes the party goes a while without buffs if I'm way too focused on pulling with a good party that kills fast. They usually don't seem to mind, but I usually buff every few pulls. Whenever you can find time :P There is no EXP Chains in abyssea, so you won't break one. Sometimes I pull a few mobs at a time and Horde Lullaby them to give me a chance to buff. We're not in the Colibri age anymore, they wont bounce back :D

3. What you did before. BRD usually isn't required for main puller anymore, though I always volunteer to pull. And like I said earlier, ometimes I pull a few mobs at a time and Horde Lullaby them to not slow things down so much when I buff. Usually I find the buffs are Haste X2, or Attack/Haste, I don't see Accuracy used much.

4. Uhh like I said earlier, there is no EXP chains in Abyssea :P and there EXP Rings don't work :/ And sadly, you'll probably go more than 30 seconds without getting an invite :/ I waited quite awhile the other day, about 30 minutes :( And things to get are just the Abyssea Expansion :D

Hope I've helped :D

You've helped tremendously. Just reading to how i can now Horde Lullaby again and how EXP chains are a thing of the past is really making me look forward to playing again :) Thank you.
