Bard Leveling Build

Bard is a support class that offers a lot of shields, heals and buffs to your teammates. The playstyle revolves around saving your teammates with tools at your disposal from damage and obviously increasing their damage output while also decreases your foes resistances. Even though Bard is a support class, with the right sets of skills, the solo leveling process isn’t that painful. Just a bit slower than most dps classes.

Leveling Gear

During the leveling process you shouldn’t be too focused on getting best in slot gear for each level or stats. It is recommended to always pick the highest gear score items that are available for you. Primary stats on your gear during leveling are: Crit, Swiftness and Specialization.

  • Crit – Increases critical strike chance by certain %. 
  • Swiftness – Increases attack, movement and cooldown recovery speed
  • Specialization – Bonuses from this speciality differs for each class, but generally it increases effects(damage, cooldown, recovery etc.) of your special and awakening skills
