Introduction

I am Muse (IGN). This is a guide on PvE Bard/Wiz. However, some of the information here benefits every class.

In this vast land of Aura Kingdom, Bards are not just heal bots. Bards are Soft Tank, CC, DPS, Buffer and Debuffer too. Don't be fooled by the countless comments that overrate the usefulness of Sorcerer's AoE Cleanse in PvE. The AoE Cleanse is not a "Must Have".

Be a Soft Tanker. Be a Crowd Controller. Be an AoE DPS. Be a Buffer. Be a Debuffer. Be an Efficient Healer. Be an Effective Healer. Be a Bard/Wizard.

Techniques
Back Strike

Hitting the monster from the back deal extra 50% Damage.

Animation Cancelling
Pressing ESC or moving away before you finish casting can cancel the animation while the cast is still in effect.

Jump Cast

Jump Cast is used to escape Animation Lock. It allows the user to cast skills while moving. You can also change direction mid-air to dodge Boss Skills or what we called "Red Carpet".

Cast Interruption
Cast Interruption can be used in both PvE and PvP. It is a technique which requires you to watch the target cast animation and stun them at the right timing. There is not really a need to time Stun for Normal and Elite monsters as these monsters do not receive Stun Immunity. In other words, it is a technique mainly used on Boss Monsters and Players.
When Boss Monsters use skill, there will be a cast animation.
Ex: GG 2nd Boss Linear AoE Stun Animation

The moment you see the cast animation, you cast your stun skill.

The boss is stunned before they can stun you. Please take note that Boss Monster and Player will receive Stun Immunity after being stunned. Boss Monster and Player would not be stunned if you try to stun them when they have the Stun Immunity Status.

How to calculate Stun Immunity Duration?

Stun Immunity Duration is the total of 30.0 sec + stun duration.

The stun duration of Ambient Drone is 3.0 sec. Hence, the Boss received a Stun Immunity of 33.0 sec.

Levelling
Stack Exp Bonus and follow the main quest line.

Envoy's Path
Quick Study 1


Quick Study 2

Both Quick Study passives increases monster EXP.

Blessed Set



+18 provides additional EXP Bonus.

Guild's Blessing

LV 1 Guild - 1% Bonus to EXP
LV 2 Guild - 2% Bonus to EXP
LV 3 Guild - 3% Bonus to EXP
LV 4 Guild - 4% Bonus to EXP
LV 5 Guild - 5% Bonus to EXP

Party Bonus

You need to be on same map and in the same channel.

Drink Buff
Dragon Soul Energy Drink


Revitization Drink


Vitality Drink
(Purple) EVA +280 and Earned XP+4% for 3 hour

Longevity Drink


Monster XP Book
The EXP given scales with your Character Level. The higher your Character Level, the more EXP you get from the book. Save them and spam it 1 level before the Cap Level.


EXP Party Trick
You receive EXP for your party member kill if you healed them while they are hitting the monster. Keep Ballad Buff Status on all your Grind Party Memebers. In a long run, you will receive way more EXP than not doing so. This is because the 4 other Party Members are bound to be hit by the monster sometime and you abuse this to gain additional EXP.

Formulas

Heal Amount = (((Base Damage + Skill Base Heal Amount)*Skill Modifier)*(Healing% + P-Healing%)) + G-Healing

Heal Over Time Amount = (((Base Damage + Skill Base Heal Amount)*Skill Modifier)*Healing%)

Damaged Received/Dealt = ((Base Damage + Skill Base Damage)*Skill Modifier)*(1 + (Attacker +DMG) - (Defender DMG Reduction)*(1 + 0.5*(1 or 0 depending on back damage))) - Static Damage Reduction

Attacker +DMG = Sigil + Ultimate Skill + (Deep Blue, Special Ultimate Skill with different calculation method) + (Additional Damage towards Elite Monster/Boss Monster/Player) + Enchantment Card

Defender DMG Reduction = Costume DMG Reduction + Sigil + (Additional Damage Reduction towards Elite Monster/Boss Monster/Player) + Enchantment Card

This instance is the only Equipment-Check for Founder's Beta/Closed Beta/Stress Test Bard. Follow the red line to pull all the Tiny Bunnyhop from the entrance till the last boss and suicide. If you can pull all the Tiny Bunnyhop without using HP Potion and not dying in the middle of the pull, your equipment and build is fine.

After you suicided, all the Tiny Bunnyhop will rush to the entrance. You and all your remaining party members have to spam AoE and revive locally immediately after they died to continue the AoE Spam. If all 5 party members die at the same time, all the Tiny BunnyHop will run back to their actual position.

This is the most effective method to clear instances when you have no tank and the 4 DPS are squishy.
