How good is Frog Bard?

Checked the racial passives for Frog (Anuran), and saw that "Bard song duration +2 second" and I'm having second thoughts on continuing leveling my human character (lv75).

 

So, how good is Frog Bard actually? *speaking in False swipe gaming's analysis video tone*

I was thinking that with Music of Life lasting for 16 seconds, Spirited Melody and other good buff songs lasting for 19 seconds is probably amazing. Consequently, does Burning Metal also have their duration increased from Frog Racial passive?

Race is not that impactful anymore, if you where to force my hand into recommending a race you'd have to give more insight on what you're aiming to do.

 

My advice though don't worry too much about race anymore and play what you wanna play. If you give me an example of what you're aiming to achieve by end game I can help recommend the best race but honestly it very rarely matters because usually Zumi is the best in most cases but there is still plenty of none Zumi's.

Nah, not aiming for anything except 'convenience' in particular. Mostly its just that Bard gets shackled by buff duration for skill rotations, so extending buff timers means squeezing in more Vocal Bombs/Cure/Other things. So for example when all the buffs last for the default 12 second and needing to account for all of their respective cast times, it means around 5 buffs max (without casting Cure, or other things), with extended timers its probably 5 buffs and bunch of other skills too once cast speed goes higher.

But anyway, seeing as you probably know more about Bard and all, I'll refrain from airing my niche interests. My wish for convenience is mostly fulfilled by Engineer anyway (and that's what I mainly use when not trying to boost class levels for other things). It's nice to know that Zumi seems to be the one to handle most of the min-maxing thing for ideal builds. 

 

PS: I seriously never recalled that certificates scaled on flat numbers after playing Eden Eternal on the original servers for two years when it first came out, I also never recalled Tornado being a ranged skill and not a close ranged one like Lightning web. I always just used whatever certificates were appropriate and knew that those stats never gave enough to make much difference. Oh well, shows what I know after only getting to lv50 on the original exp rates.

When you reach the higher level you should be able to reach a state of instant cast when fully built so naturally you'd bypass some of those shackles you're feeling.

As for the certificates, most people didn't know much about the game really until the 75 level cap. The things people know now are thing that likely couldn't even be conceptualized back then, to be honest though back then these things didn't matter as much either since in things like PvP normal points based dots where a good form of damage vs now when they are irrelevant.
