I'll introduce myself here first, since I have never posted here. I got my Bard to 50 a long time ago for completions purposes. When I leveled it I hated it. I refused to level it beyond 50 in fear of getting pigeon holed on it the rest of my career. Moving two years in the future, since I have a PC and an Xbox right next to each other, figured i'd try dual boxing. Having a pocket BRD would be invaluable, especially since I spend a lot of my time on RDM.
Moving on even further, I got my BRD to 23, WHM to 36, and i'm soloing it through FoV's while I do other stuff on my main. I'm actually really enjoying it for some reason. I'm actually even looking forward to partying with it once I get it to 36. (Grr, gonna have to get NIN sub leveled too! ><). Huge change of heart, but I am glad i'm actually liking it this time around.
When I leveled it on my main I used 1 instrument the whole way to 50. (Feel free to tear me apart.) This time around i'm buying all the instrument's I can find. I noticed something, however, that I wasn't aware of before. Minuet II is putting me from 97 attack to 110 without a min+ instrument, and 97 to 115 attack with a min+1 instrument. I figured it was simply attack+1, I had no idea minuet+1 actually added a large amount of attack. I mean I know that's how it works for march, etudes, and things, but I had no idea it worked like this with minuet. I'm sure there is other things it works for like this as well. Wiki gave me no light at all on this topic, and I couldn't find anything in the sticky.
So, here I am, asking the BRD community. Thanks :D
