bard will be weakened so much it will be the weakest class after patch...

removing it is nonsense, the class is enjoyable to play

The main role of the bard is to be a support class. Actually he is: a tank, a heal a dps --"
A nerf seems really good

Looks to me like Bard will still be an awesome class and is just being tuned a bit to be closer in level to the other classes.

All of the changes are only slight, although granted there is a few changes all around.

I say, if you enjoy Bard the class is still fine and will still have its place(and role) in the game.

**Not as bad as people make it out to be.

figure to be valid, must be comparable to other...For example, healer .... use only heal? or is very strong dps?..or war ... dps 900 K stuns many, double life...to these two had never bard can not stand, never win...where comparability?

Now, bard reduce everything...healer + dps war .... strengthening and defense....and original idea ... all are equal ..... :D

Why such a strong dps? where is the balance?

does anybody know why bard has all buffs etc... cause its a SUPPORT class.
after a year being the most OP class they finally eqaul it to the lvl it should be. SUPPORT

so all who now alrdy complain about bards just need to accept that they choose the support clas and not fight clas.

For the FIRST time in allods history bard will be a REASONABLE class lol. Bard is in no manner a balanced class.

In fact, I am greatly considering Bard as my first choice of reincarnate.

Even after the Nerf Bard will still be beastly.

Taken together and as a whole, it appears to be a LOT of changes, and it is, but one must also keep in mind that a majority of the changes aren't that significant. I mean 9% as opposed to 12% and stuff like that isn't going to make or break the class, it will simply bring it to the power level of all the other classes and bring it in-line with it's purported original intent: a support class BUT with some decent dps and survivability.

Classes should have their own individual roles that they can excel at(tank, dps, support), this is what makes them unique, but it is also good that ALL classes can mingle these roles somewhat(in the name of leveling and solo play) while still specializing in their particular forte.

well be real atm its like

Warden->Bard->Warr/mage when it comes to top dps classes ;)

so if i look at the changes where is the R.I.P bard? 5% dancing blade and 10% on cantata? wayne? even then its maybe after the mage/warr but still a top dps class ;D i dont see the problem there O.o

Not quite sure why people think bard is the most op dps is still below that of a mage. i feel it is anyway(granted a good bard is very formidable). I enjoy the bard class and have played nothing but bard since they came out.. The changes of the next patch will in fact affect its out put but I look forward to this challenge. many of the changes to skills are skills i have tried out but chose not to use so no big deal there. Flying blade is now a combination of damage which would make putting down paladins tougher I am worried that the 7 second DoT it will apply will be a considerable nerf with a crazy damage formula between ticks but the theory of it seems ok. But i think Bards are OP if they out gear and rune you... but what class isnt op if that is the case.. Anyway i think the changes are a bit dispersed throughout the entire archetype which will make it a lil tough but i think a harcore bard can adjust and make it work. Pvp tactics will have to seriously change making bards a hit and run or evasion tactic fighter but i think pve will still be a viable class.

Hopefully this patch will finally end the wave of nerfs bard will have and finally be "balanced". It has been kind of depressing to play, when you know that it will all be even worse in next patch :)

Sooo...maybe in the future we will se other kinds of changes to this class than just nerfs...
