    A challenge. Make Bard more Bard.

    In layman's terms: Make a musical instrument visible when casting songs. Nothing more and nothing less.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I'm fully prepared to get flamed for this, and with all seriousness I'm disappointed with FFXIV's Bard.

    Now when I look at Archer and Bard in 1.xx and from the end of an era trailer, there isn't much difference or individuality that can distinguish them apart from one another. FFXIV Bard is still just an Archer besides the fact they wear Artifacts, and has access to a few extra skills that are staples to the job.

    I challenge everyone, the readers out there to get somebody who never played FFXIV before, and show them the end of an era trailer. I guarantee you that they'll never know that a Bard was in it. They'll be like "Oh that Miqo'te is an Archer."

    Square Enix, when I think of Bard I think of music that can be used to attack enemies, and buff allies and not just shooting arrows like an Archer would. I want to use that Harp, that Flute, and that Horn musical instruments we carry around.

    2.0 make it happen.


    You're free to disagree with me from the following:
    Look at this Bard. This is completely my opinion but, why other game companies is doing Bard right?

    I used Aion Bard as a reference only because it actually uses instruments to fight, and to buff. There is no need to compare what it looks like except for its concept.


    Discuss in the posting section below.

    I want to use instruments

    More musical notes integrated into the WS's.

    More songs (a lot more)

    If they added that I'd be happy.

    I want to actually use a harp and flute.

    And yes that video was awesome. I wish that they'd do a lot more with the musical side of it.

    Instruments sound awesome, attacking stuff with a violin would be so much fun!

    But let's leave out the penguins D:

    Oh gawd Q_Q you are so right lol. While the idea for an instrument wielding BRD was nice, that one looked like it got pooped out of Barbie's dream world.
