Bardic Ballad

  • Usage: Passive
  • Prerequisite: Bard Level 1
  • Duration = 1 Minute *


You are constantly surrounded by a faint aura of Bardic Music, and it benefits you and your nearby allies in combat. You and all nearby allies receive the benefits of Inspire Courage as long as you are alive and not incapacitated. Certain Bard feats and abilities can alter or increase the benefits of your Ballad. In game description says Aria, however this is a left over typo from the original testing name of the ability from its time on Lammania.


Description in game states that the Ballad only lasts one minute. This is the length of the buff applied per refresh interval which occurs ~10 seconds at a time. This is only important to note if a party member wanders outside of the Ballad range, or if the Bard dies. The range on the ballad appears to be 30 ingame meters centerd on the bard.
