So I have heard a LOT of talk lately of Bards locking people and whilst I am an alright combatant I just can't seem to get a lock.
Even testing with someone standing there it seems impossible. I've heard a few things but the latest advice I'm following is @Jovolo - "A salve lock is impatience and anorexia while off salve balance. Can't focus, eat or applu. From there you stick paralysis and then the rest of the lock affs before salve balance is recovered. As a bard, you can stick impatience, then minuet apply restoration, jab curare pesante and sing qasida. Or slike and recite epic, doesn't really matter. Then jab kalmia martellato, jab gecko. Need a jab faster than 2 seconds."
So I have a 1.6-1.7 second jab and I can't lock following this advice even when the victim is standing there with uncured impatience. I'm just following this to the letter. Currently the victim gets impatience, anorexia and paralysis, then asthma and slickness afterwards as the others start getting cured. My minueting is working well, the whole thing begins as soon as they apply resto. My ping is fine. There is NO way I can see to Bard using the server side queueing, as it doesn't respect envenoming.
Halp much appreciated KK thanks
