    "Why do we need to grind so much?" - "You are not supposed to learn everything, pick what you like, specialize and cooperate with other specialists."

    "Why do i need to level 20 skills to use 2?" - "Shut up and learn everything."

    Should bard also be a painter, a sculptor, a calligraphist, a chef, a writer and whatever sounds like art-related? No way you can get on a windy road to bring a music to some faraway village without that art college. Hmm, but flower arranger also should have artistic sense so he must become bard 70lv first. Now that's a conundrum. What art should go first?


    But srsly, can't bard hardships be actually bard-related and not some plucked from the air dependency on Art of Potato?

    Make Dancing and Performing at high levels a requirement, make Bards do the vocabulary game till their fingers bleed and it's no problem.
    All these are thematically connected to the class.

    But Gardening? You start your career by plugging potato seedlings into the ground? Where's the Errol Flynn in that anyways, even if it was relevant?

    It's okay now that we know it's a placeholder, just to make it a PITA on a comparable level. Let's not try to justify Gardening as somehow bardic - won't work.

    Yes, a Japanese bard would totally have gardening (and bonzai) as pre-requisites!

    No. They would know their one instrument in and out and try to master it. Japanese culture is about focus.

    While this is about Bard prereqs, I wanted to comment on gardening since a lot of the concern was with it. Gardening is currently mind numbing. My first 2-3 weeks I mostly gardened cause I found it fun. The problem is once we get high level in gardening we are still required to sit there basically like a zombie and click stuff to get crops/flowers. I for one just gave up as I found this skill to be far too mind numbing to repeat after getting it maxed, and most anyone I know feels the same.

    I'd suggest that we be allowed to make crop boxes or something that grow over 24 hours (like with mushroom farming) once we get high enough skill (50, or 70 in gardening). This would reduce tedium while also allowing high level gardeners to get some flowers/crops. It would also be a nice reward for those who leveled this just for Bard since they could unlock the class and also have a passive source of items. One final point, something like this would feed the economy. Just look at mushrooms, before the mushroom farming was added it was somewhat impossible to find most mushrooms for sale, now there are plenty but they are not so common as to be devalued.

    Update: got Gardening to 50, bought Flower Arrangement. Couldn't just start though, now I had to:
    - get favor with the textile guy
    - unlock textile creation
    - level the skill to 9 (3 quests a 1k xp were helpful) to make the wrapping.
    So in order to unlock Bard 70, I now had to learn 3 crafting skills.
    All I wanted was a class to kill monsters with. You made me jump through hoops for it - and I'm not even done :/

    Just which trait of the Bard justifies this grind? Not the support abilities, Psychology or Pig are better. Not the damage, most everything else was stronger, and that was before the Discord nerf.
    What is it that makes you want us to work so hard for?

    Is this really necessary? People who worked on maxing their Poetry Appreciation didn't do it to be able to read high-level books. The grind would certainly not justify it unless there is nothing else to do.

    Why not unlock bard 70 when you feel like it's worth the effort?

    Poetry Appreciation at least fits. How high it has to be would depend on the sadism level of the designers, but at least it's a straightforward, intuitive route.

    We've already said that the pre-reqs will change further along in development and you know that so continuing to complain about it is unnecessary and not constructive.

    You guys keep ignoring my questions. Wonder why that is.
