I've kept BRD in mothballs since before the December update to work on SMN more (skill and gear were falling behind). I intend, though, to get Bard to 90 before the next update. However, I don't really know everything about the new gear I'd want or whether Surya's/Kubera's Staves +2 are worth getting. So far, I have finished the Aoidos' Rhingrave +1--mostly by chance as I was after Caller's leg seals at the time--and am 3/8 towards the Aoidos' Calot +1.

One thing I'd like to know is how the Hongreline stacks up against other body pieces (I currently use Teal Saio) and whether the Cothurnes are worth looking for if I'm not kiting (I am 3/8 by chance on those as well while farming Caller's feet seals).

M.acc staves probably aren't necessary; not much really needs it. A Cure staff might be a good idea though.

Assuming the worst (where 2 brdskill = 1 macc, and 2 CHR = 1 macc as well), the relevant stats look like this:

Teal Saio
CHR 6
MAcc 4
Total MAcc: 7

Hongerline +1
CHR 8
Macc 4 (if using a harp, MAcc 8 if using a wind instrument)
Total MAcc: 8/12

If you want to carry around an extra inventory slot for lullaby only (due to the nearly-always-land-if-the-mob-is-not-completely-immune nature of Finale and lolRequiem) an Auger's Jaseran would be a solid choice, but personally I wouldn't bother.

The Cothurnes also have a massive wallop of CHR (+9-11) on them. I've made the +1s my default shoes just because running around faster is also better.
