    Honor March

    Marsyas, the Aeonic instrument, grants you the ability to use the special song “Honor March.” This effect of this song is quite close to combination of Sword Madrigal, Archer’s Prelude, Valor Minuet III, and Advancing March all rolled into one.

    SE is there a reason why Prelude is the higher tiered song, while the others are the lower tiered one?

    Sword madrigal, Advancing march, Valor Minuet III are all the lower tiered versions of songs, I would have thought it would be Hunter's prelude that would be included, not Archer's Prelude.

    To be frank, Honor March is pretty darn terrible, even more so when you consider that the instrument has no + songs on it. You are basically getting an unbuffed, terrible, low tier set of songs. To cap magic haste without having to rely on Marcato (which is TERRIBLE), - assuming you have a standard party setup where Haste1 is your only other source of magic haste -, you'd still need to cast Advancing, Victory, and Honor March. It's ok for a 4 song bard, but for a 3 song bard they'd probably be better of just using Victory and Advancing and a high tier Madrigal or Minuet.

    I guess if these weapons are stupidly easy and cheap to make, them being bad is to kind of be expected. If, however, they are somewhat/difficult to obtain, this is pretty disappointing :<
