This spec is designed for RIFT 2.0+ and last updated for RIFT 2.4 Raiding/PVE.
If you choose to use the alternative build, you will lose Planebound Resilience which is an endurance buff and Shadow Shift. This is a pretty big loss due to the more survivability you will get with more endurance and Bard’s are great support so you want to stay alive especially if you are lose on endurance and for specific raid fights such as Regulos or Crucia.
This is a pretty decent quick walkthrough to Bard to the few or none out there or as detailed. I may update this overtime with even much more information such as more details on what buffs or buffs do not stack then already mentioned or of course, if anything changes from patches and what not else. I also on rare occasion bard, so I almost never do.
I recommend finding out, some of what I have actually listed below as far as Coda’s go, on what buffs and debuffs do not stack with others if you are new to bard or your guild wants you to learn how to better or become a better bard.…
