[Guide] How to: DPS Bardo

  • Hello everynub!


    I am currently writing on a DPS-Bard guide and I need your help! I am finally done, writing this!
    In my guide I'd like to cover most of the basic things everynub needs to know to become a DPS-Bard.

    If you have any ideas or other feedback please leave a comment here or on the sheet itself~


    Link to the Google Sheet: How to: DPS Bardo


    Thanks in advance~

  • I have finally finished the guide~ It is now, like I wanted it to be.

    Please keep up the great feedback and keep asking questions~ I will make sure that the guide stays up to the task.

  • * Guide Update
    * I updated the Secret Stone and Trophy Section. (Only small changes, due to patch, bigger changes will come with future patches on those).

    * Also I added a section for foods and drinks, since so many have asked me.


    comfyy enjoy

  • Tfw you see an actual up-to-date guide for DPS Bardo *FeelsGudMang* :3


    I've one major objection though; You should put Alice in the same tier as Diao.

    *8% Defense Shred from accessory, that procs almost always

    *Flat Defense Shred from spell

    *Raw Damage Buff

    These are values Bardo doesn't get easy access to even with churiki as sub.

    In terms of a solo player - carry in party Alice is one of the best options hands up since you hit 50% Def shred on your own, without Gold Break Defense, plus all the extras.


    Also you should maybe include the storm song - shuriken toss animation cancel in the skill rotation section (just a suggestion :P )


    But yeah overall really solid guide Cookie, can't even hate xD Cheers! :v

  • Thank you very much about your feedback :AK9:!

    I am not sure if you talk about Holy or Storm, but I guess we do talk about Storm here.


    About Alice:

    I've looked into your objection and put down a detailed list on why I can't put Alice into S Tier, but rahter in A. I've added my Eidolon's level, and some comments. This is for Storm build.


    Smol comments:

    • Overall I still think choosing an Eidolon is personal preferece. It is wise to put the skills, accs, element, ult and also if the eido is ranged or melee (ranged ones tend to die less) on a table like this. That way you can check for yourself which is the best for your needs.
    • The dual drive of Diao is worth alot. That's why I personally think it is the best Eidolon skill in the whole game. (After this would probably come the Noc effects and the DMG against Dark skill of Michaela)
    • For Storm build, having a Storm Eidolon is amazing. Depending on playstyle ofc, but I actually use the eidolon ulti a lot to dodge immbolizing etc.
    • I've put Alice's element as A tier, but I wasn't sure how to judge that. Any other element than Storm is lower than S tier. So every other element would have been A (worse than S) too.
    • Dots and skills without effect are automatically lowest tier.

    (I can only upload 10 attatchments, so I uploaded the Alice pictures on imgur)


    For some people these stats are important too:

    (Keep in mind that party buffs, the eidolons accessories, your own buffs you give the party as bard, and other party members buffs are counted in those stats. I've took all these pictures with a lvl 106 Shuri party buff)

    Diao Chan

    (ofc the stats of both others would change drastically too, if they would have more accessories, would be lvl 80 and 4-Star)


    I hope that kinda makes it more understandable how I build up my tierlist on the Eido-recommendation.


    About the skill animations:

    I didn't put any of those in the guide, I noted it down to maybe at it later to the guild. (smol edit to this: in near future with the next class balance the animation time of Stormsong will be changed, so I am not sure if it's nessecary to put it in the guide. My idea is to wait till we got the change and then add it, if it's still viable)
