I played as a BRD for a long time in FFXI and I wonder if the new BRD in XIV is gonna become a hot commodity like it was in XI. I created my character for early access and am working on my Archer to soon move to Bard to see what it's all about. Any thoughts?

I don't think it will be the same demand as Bard was in FFXI because they aren't quite the same, although they are very similar.

Bard will be able to provide group buffs which will undoubtedly be useful for tackling larger group content. They provide buffs that other classes cannot, whilst still being able to do damage and not pigeon holed into rotating songs all day. They do just fine in smaller content like dungeons but I have little experience elsewhere in the relaunch. Time will tell!

Be spoony,

It appears that the Bard of this game will be more similar to the Corsair of XI. Instead of just buffing, the Bard looks like it will retain it's dps abilities along with being able to buff the group. That definitely reminds me of my old Corsair than my old ffxi Bard.

BRD is a mobile support dps that doesn't have to stop moving to attack. <3 it.
