    If you want to abuse Accentato Scaling, max STR with lvl 3 rapier is pretty obscene damage.

    Bard doesn't benefit much from Int or Dex. Con, is con. Always is a good option.

    Doesn't change the fact that you can abuse people with it ^_^

    Don't skimp on int, voicecraft uses mana

    Does Dex spec makes them harder to get hit by physical classes?

    the problem with dex is, that it only helps when you don't need it defensively, and most classes have ways of negating it entirely (paralysis, proning). It slows down a BM's prep a little bit, and might keep you alive against a damage druid. Otherwise it's only good if you are serpent

    To just rezz this, because...

    I may have to read back through le classleads to get back into Bard... But this confuses me... Atalkez said:

    Was always INT scaling accentato damage. Do I now only have a lvl 3 sash because it makes me look more Greco-Roman and diplomatic or what?

    Clarification would be appreciated. Got a while before I'm effective as a Bard yet.

    It scales off of both. If I remember right from my testing str is slightly better scaling just 'cause it also modifies how much damage you do per jab. Honestly though I don't think it matters much now since accentato damage has been reduced pretty significantly. It now scales very very quickly with mental affs so it's more about stacking those on than just abusing stats and jabbing prefarar singing limerick till they stop moving.

    Min/max ftw. Max str, then int and stack them mental. Con is for defeatist and loosers!

    In PvP, accentato is affected by int, same as always. Against denizens, accentato is purely based on jab damage now, so it's not affected by int or collar, and is affected by str and rapier damage.

    Shit wish I had have gone here rather than asking on the clans before choosing my traits.

    I didn't know that about denizen damage. Ah well.

    Traits are traits though, right... I think the way they are beginning to balance them means that their truly is flavour for individual styles of play.
