Loots, Favor and Fire

Last night was a big night. First I won a lesser heart of wood from the lotto. Then the scramble to get ready for the bonfire was full on. Grab a few House D epics and run threw the Co6 chain on elite and fill my quiver/s. Side Note: Did you know that the Quiver of Alacrity is usable at level 1? I didn’t until I was looking at my TR bank and saw that is was usable. 1500 returning arrows and +10% ranged alacrity. Low level ranged should be so much better now. Knock out the last 50 favor to pick up a +2 tome. I like having a +2 tome from the last life waiting, Int or Dex depending on what I need for the next life. Very handy, that 1750 favor tome. Rolled up a storage squire for all of Samius’s monkesk gear that I can’t use this life. And turned in my heart of wood. Ran to the bar and made myself all sexy for my.ddo.

So I put my desire to try the Bowonk aside and followed my plan of doing my bard life. Spent an bit yesterday looking for a bard build that I thought I might like. I found a few that looked real good for end game or maybe for grouping but not a solo heavy speed runner. I want a build that will have a good xp per min ratio. And at the same time help any leveling partners, so they might stick around for the next life.

I already have a bard, Butterzotch. She is a single class level 20 Virtuoso. And while she is lots of fun and can kill anything that can be danced sooner or later. But she is not what I would call a solo build. Or at least not not according to my ideas of solo build. Mainly because her damage is not great enough to solo a “final boss” if it heals/regens. So I wanted something a little more tailored for me.

Keep in mind this is build for me, using 5 past life’s of gear. I want to have good damage, but I want to use my Lightning 2 Maul. If I didn’t have any gear I would us a falchon or great axe for stronger damage numbers. I also want to see how the Initiate of the Faith plays out. I need to know if it will lower my running costs or not.

So here is my bard build. I don’t really have a name for it but I think of it as “Samius is pissed and singing about it.” So if you want to name it, use the comments.
