DDO Bard Build: Crowd Control Captain

Posted Mon, Mar 06, 2006 by Ethec

Bard's the Ward!

Everyone loves the bonuses to attack and damage bonuses that come from the bard in the party in Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach. Many people consider it a plus if the bard can handle a weapon, too. But the main thing expected of any bard once he joins the party is that he will be ready with his cure spells to help keep the party alive.

Ralsu is a bard who focuses on crowd control. His battle strategy is to immobilize the enemy so that no one needs a cure spell in the first place. In fact, Ralsu doesn't know any cure spells at all:

Be ready for personal attacks and slander against your mother for not specializing in Cure spells. People expect bards to be healers...The CCC is dedicated to rendering monsters incapacitated so that the heavy hitters can deal with them in a leisurely manner...Extra Song V and Inspired Damage II are two Enhancements that combine to allow the CCC to keep the entire party buffed almost constantly with bonueses to hit and damage.
