If you want to abuse Accentato
One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important
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.
I don't know how long ago races were adjusted but it seems like the changes didn't achieve what I guess the goal was if trolls, xorans and horkval make the best bards.
Perhaps it's more the fault of dexterity and the bard class itself then, and less the races. It does seem weird that strength would affect rapier damage - I would expect it to be a combination of dex + int.
You've been playing too much D&D. Strength is the stat which determines how hard you hit things.
