I finally found a class I love! I -Love- Bard! Its a great job and soloing isnt so bad with Army's Paeon recovering a small amount of hp and cure to help. Just wondering what some good +CHR stuff is. I know Monster Signa (Yea right like I could afford that, or get the drop >.<) and Bird whistle is the other. Any others? <b>ALSO!</b> Any good tips, instruments to use, tips for in-battle, out-of-battle etc. I hate being gimp (I always have to keep my sub leveled..underleveled subs just bothers me.)

Nobles ribbon and bird necklace are two good ones to get. Really I think getting the +1 instruments is better than getting +CHR gear early on. From what others have said CHR only helps reduce the chances that MOBS resist your attack songs(threnody, lullaby, requiem, etc) and doesn't really increase the effect/duration of songs. Those attacks songs are useful, but not nearly as much so as madrigal/minuet/minne. Those are greatly affected by the instrument you use. Invest in all the +1 instruments for all the important songs(or all the songs if you have the money, you'll use almost all of them at some point) and some of the +1 instruments you'll keep with you forever.

[edit] I would also like to say that your whm sub will be very useful to you and as a result getting +MP gear can be really helpful to your team earlier on too. I think until you start getting to the higher levels where it is important that your attack songs land (finale/elegy) then +MP might be more useful than +CHR[/edit]

well kudos onf inding something you like; it can be very hard in this game to do that. just keep on making sure you've got the best instruments and don't worry too much about CHR until you level up more, though you obviously want what you can feasibly get now.
