    Oh and here is my standard 51pt bard spec;

    Soul Tree Calculator: Bard (51) / Nightblade (8) / Riftstalker (5) :: Rift :: ZAM

    I left the 2 points open in RS for whatever you guys would like, either more HP, less damage, or increased incoming healing. (I have less damage right now, may change, pending HK raid encounters)

    Someone else post their battle bard specs because I'm still tweaking mine. Its not "battle" enough for me yet.

    After playing around, I think this one has the best dps. You could also take out backstab and pickup blade tempo, but I don't think precision strike is that hot and worth it.

    I changed my 51 bard spec (51 bard/ 8 nb/ 7 ranger) when I checked out spells and noticed if I choose ranger at 6 points I get a self buff to attack power for 46 + the 5% crit chance bubble you fill out to get it. The other 2 points go into 2% hp increase. Found that to be a good combo of gains for 7 points worth.

    Ya I noticed that too, but I just love having the planar shift (has gotten me out of many bad situations) and the extra HP/damage reduction which keeps me alive during raids, not that its a problem right now, but I'm hoping with HK its going to be harder to stay alive.

    I've noticed cadence doesn't scale well with AP. I've been goofing around and trying to pay attention to which abilities scale, and think it depends on the type of attack.

    Anything channelled scales the worst, followed by dots, followed by dd... which makes me wonder about warriors. They keep trying to jack all the rogue gear in my guild citing that crit is best for them. Aren't they mostly DD? I wouldn't be surprised if AP scales ok for them, they're just all noobs like clerics going after crit from mage gear.

    After one warrior spent his dkp on a 34 dps weapon and had a 33.6 dps weapon already with better stats, you can tell most haven't done their research. Most players are greedy and noobs... guess he hasn't figured out there's no difference in base damage from the two numbers, it's just rounding based on speed. When you see stuff like that you have to question everything the person's doing.
