    but again this build is unbalanced and is a big issue in pvp, its a hitkill AOE damage that can be casted while stealth. If people start using this in pvp poblably i need to respect to archer again

    Great video!!!!!! I learned a lot about Bard. Question - you don’t use Air’s Embrace? Why not? It helps with air shield a ton.

    The reason is simple, I haven't even trained it much for now, it only gives me 15 dex for now, which doesn't help my focus transfer rate. I am also hesitant between Airs Embrace for the extra dex OR Enlightenment for the extra focus, so that is stuff I am still trying out.

    I like ashen wands for focus (or staff) and high level embrace for my air shield. I can get to .2 transfer rate post changes, but now it is hard for me to get there. With .2 you can live with air shield with hard PvE, but it takes a ton of attention with air spells using focus. Health becomes irrelevant but I have only one pool for offense and defense. Attacks use focus and damage I sustain uses focus so the pool gets dry fast!
    Keep up the Bard videos I love this one and learned a lot. I love seeing what different players do and how they play.

    There's supposed to be more "balance" coming next release for Shield of Air. I expect that Chris might completely remove dexterity from the transfer equation. If he does that (and doesn't rebalance the skill itself) then you can expect a 0.7 transfer rate with a 6 stack and skill level 160, which will likely upset some players.

    If he did that it would be odd since Air Embrace is supposed to support the air shield / but we shall see.

    Yep, I use Fustian and Ashen gear, but my transfer rate is 0.7. The fact that I do not use any focus except for my buffs and Torpid Torment, I do not need it to be super low. I was aiming for 0.5 or 0.6 as an end goal for Air shield, with a focus pool of 4k that would give me around 8k effective health just from the focus pool, so more than enough hahaha.

    Thanks for the compliments on the video, I will do more for sure!

    I don't think this means canticle should be buffed but rather that fire is maybe really strong if things aren't immune to it :p

    Yeah its a point even if you have 0.5 focus rate (int+dex gear) +2 buffs and have 6-8k ehp(3k its a normal focus rate for advanced mage) you have zero risk, its one of the reason why i think transfer rate should depend from att not from dex, I don't play this way but it is possible.
