Bard job looks sweet

So far looking at the bard job, looks so badass with the bow, I am hoping this job can actually be more than supportive, and do some damage. I dont want to be singing all day to boost the stats of the party, it seems too boring and tedious. Hopefully they can make this job right in this version.

    Isn't driving to the bad part of town to solicit a bard job illegal?

    Bards were very capable damage dealers in 1.0, so you should like it if your idea of being able to do that plus provide support to your party encompasses that role.

    I was never a fan of Bards in any RPG setting, really. I thought it was odd you'd take a musician into a dark dungeon. 

     

    But I really liked the Bard in FFXIV 1.0. THeir Relic Weapon was a Bow combined with a Harp, it was super cool. :)

     

    Bards did do damamge, but also had support. I don't know how they'll be in 2.0 yet, but I am sure they will be just as awesome. 

     

    "The word "bard" ordinarily puts folk in mind of those itinerant minstrels, fair of voice and nimble of finger, who earn their coin performing in taverns and the halls of great lords. Few know, however, that bards in fact trace their origins back to the bowmen of eld, who sang in the heat of battle to fortify the spirits of their companions.

    In time, their impassioned songs came to hold sway over the hearts of men, inspiring their comrades to great feats and granting peace unto those who lay upon the precipice of death."
