Pan's Horn vs. Nursemaid's HarpFollow

#1 Sep 10 2011 at 7:11 AM Rating: Good
I got Pan's Horn last night and I was wondering if the extra +1 to lullaby is worth losing the radius with Nursemaid's. Do you use Pan's with Foe and Nursemaid's with Horde?

Wanted to get some expert brd opinions on this, because as much as I would love to alleviate some inventory room, I would rather keep/have what works best.

Thanks!

Technical answer- it's situational. Unless you're fighting a ton of mobs that path all over the place, go for the Horn. If you've got mobs covering a large area, like Einherjar (I know I know, loleinherjar) then harp is probably your best bet.

Practical answer- Grab the horn and use it for all situations. I have full lullaby merits, so even if I miss a mob or two with Horde I can hit them with Foe, and recast timers are always up before things can get hairy.

Sweet, I have full lullaby merits as well and inventory space is a good thing! Pan's it is. I have actually only done Einherjar once and it was on bard, so may be a good idea to keep nursemaid's on me just in case. We will see though!

I use Nursemaid's for Horde, Pan's for Foe. I find it tedious keeping 4 different sleeps on mobs, so I like it when Horde hits absolutely everything in the group.

/sigh LOL that is what I was afraid of. I will keep them both around for a while and see how much crowd control I actually do. I am the sleep queen on blm, so my guess is when on brd I will be as well!

IMO, especially after the upcoming patch and the Horde Lullaby 2 it will bring, I'd just want to carry a harp around if I were to only choose one instrument to pack. Horde Lullaby 2 is going to be a nice addition, but my complaint with Horde hasn't been duration/accuracy issues; it's always been the small radius and missing a mob or two with it.
