this.For those that don't know, the bard in rift is a "support" spec, which basically boils down to short term buffs (30 second duration) a powerful cooldown (increases mana/energy/focus regeneration, and thus dps/healing throughput), combo points are built using a channelled low dps spell that also heals the group for the same amount of damage that it does, combo points are spent on a variety of finishers including an AOE heal, a physical damage debuff, a magical damage debuff, a single target attack and an aoe attack. It also has a couple of other spells, such as a cooldown that means finishers can be spammed without using combo points, an instant attack that grants 5 combo points and more.I cant comment on the other support specs as I only really played my rogue at level 50 - rogue tanking was incredibly fun too! Rift has (had?) a load of potential, I just cant put my finger on why it doesn't feel quite right. It might be the lack of obvious direction at level 50, but I came back to WoW after only a month or 2.
