    I don't see the total duration listed on this skill like other skills do.. ie: every x seconds for x seconds, or duration: 15 seconds.. so I can't determine if it lasting less is intended or not..

    Also, when charging this skill, I don't see the numbers info update like other skills do when charging..

    Repro Steps: Charge anthem of alacrity and notice the %'s don't update on the skill description. Also the skill description doesn't contain the total duration info, just how long each 'tick' of the skill lasts for.

    Updating the title of this thread to reflect the issues I pointed out, and perhaps the duration can be reviewed by the devs at the same time. Giving you credit for the bug since it led me to this discovery :)

    Title: Some bard skills are missing duration info and don't update the stats when charging
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker? No
    Details: Only Atonal Aria lists the total duration, and none of the bard skills update the statistics on mouseover when charging the skill

    Steps to Reproduce: Observe the bard skill glyphs, and compare to other skill glyphs which list total duration, such as atonal aria, healing grace, soothing rain. Observe that charging a skill doesn't update the statistics on mouseover, such as other skills like Air's Embrace or Dash for example

    Charging will now update stats, but after talking to Chris, there is a limitation on how these stats apply to primary skill tooltips when the nums are pulled from subeffects such as with this skill. Normally this would be okay as charging effects are typically uniform in concept, but these subeffects include a charging multiplier which will not reflect on the primary tooltiip as you charge the skill BUT will show in your final results when you mouse over the actual buffs applied. This isn't something we will fix currently, as it could cause unintended results with other skills with subeffects. I've changed the verbiage of the skill's description to hopefully capture this by calling the charging effects "extra" after a successful application.

    Anyone trying to see these charges reflect in the tooltip, be sure to use a hotkey and wiggle your mouse a bit while mousing over so your tooltip updates, but it will only show the standard increases for now until the greater issue is addressed which is not specific to this skill or ticket.

    Also, duration now properly shows for the overall skill's trigger volume, which if players stand within the volume (caster always does), it'll apply the pulses to the applicable characters.

    So here's the new tooltip, only slight changes. If anyone has better wording for the "extra" charging effects, please suggest.

    "A high-energy marching song that periodically pulses a movement speed boost to all friendly targets within the song's radius. Bard specialization grants an additional dexterity bonus to those affected. Extra skill charging bonuses are applied to affected targets upon a successful charged cast."

    Just needs to patch in.

    Just a suggestion, put the part about spec as the last sentence.
