* * * * * 1 Votes (You voted 5)



With this pack you can freely switch your bard song in several songs, just like in Icewind Dale.
Jester and Skald song effects are modified and improved to make up for them not being able to switch between songs like Standard Bard and Blade.
Characters of all bard kits can learn Enhanced song and lingering Song after 3,000,000 exp.
Lingering Song allows all bard songs last for 2 extra rounds, and affect all allies wherever they are (except songs that only affect enemies).
For enhanced songs - lingering, extra bounses for bards themselves do NOT last for extra rounds.
Note: Only the effect of one song exists, even if several bards sing the same song (except songs that only affect enemies). If they sing different songs, they can get all effects of these songs at the same time.


1.    Compatibility

    Original BG2TOB and BGT are supported.

    Can NOT coexist with other MODs that modifies the 4 original bard kits. Install this MOD after others, then only modifications of this MOD remains.

    A special component is made to support Bard kit & HLA revisions in Rogue ReBalancing Pack. Choose this component and the Bard HLA revisions in Rogue ReBalancing Pack will remain with this MOD. Compatible with Rogue ReBalancing Pack V3.47. The reason why this component fails after Rogue ReBalancing Pack may be that update of this component is not in time. Just choose another component, and it only result in being unable to get Bard HLA revisions in Rogue ReBalancing Pack.

    Compatible with new bard kits, but can not give them ability of switching songs.

    A BUG of original BG2 still exists: If you enter Inventory interface then Character Arbitration interface without pausing the game, bard song may give strange effects.
