Were you looking for Song Potency?


Overview

Songs make up a general magic category available only to bard. Unlike other types of magic, there are two components that together determine the skill value for a song's effectiveness - singing skill and instrument skill. There are two different instrument skills--wind and string--and the type used in the calculation is that of the currently equipped instrument. The combined singing and equipped instrument skill is typically referred to as "combined skill" and is the value used to determine the potency and accuracy of bard songs. It is not entirely clear how song Magic Accuracy is calculated, although it depends on CHR and combined skill multiplied by a scaling factor.

Additionally, unlike other types of magic, songs cannot be interrupted by being struck by an enemy's attack while casting a song, so song skills have no effect on spell interruption.

There are two types of bard songs - party-targeted buffing songs and enemy-targeted debuffing songs. By default, with an instrument equipped, a Bard can place two active buffing songs on party members; any additional casted songs will overwrite the songs with the shortest remaining duration. Without an instrument equipped (e.g. with bard as a sub job), the number of buffing songs a player can cast is limited to one song. The Daurdabla (Level 99) allow a bard to cast up to two additional buffing songs for up to four total. Similarly, Terpander and lower level Daurdablas allow a bard to cast one additional buffing song, and the Camaraderie Harp allows one additional buffing song effect to be applied during Reive battles.

The same song cannot be reapplied until its current remaining duration is less than its base (unenhanced) duration. Unique songs will always overwrite a currently active song, but they will only overwrite the song with the lowest remaining duration.

Song Effect Duration

  • The base duration of a party buff song is 120 seconds.
  • All song effect duration bonuses are additive percentages of the base duration, NOT multiplicative!
    • Troubadour's double duration bonus is added after all other duration bonuses are applied.
  • This list does not include specific song bonuses, however, they do extend the duration as well as potency of appropriate songs.
    • For example, Ballad +1 on Fili Rhingrave +1 would extend Ballad by 10%, or 12 seconds, in addition to enhancing its potency by 1.
      • This means the Aeonic Instrument Marsyas does have a 10% longer duration than the Level 99 Relic Instrument Gjallarhorn, but does not feature the additional potency for party buffs that Gjallarhorn does.
  • Song duration equipment does affect offensive debuff durations!
  • Lastly, some equipment simple says "Song effect duration +10" while others say "Song effect duration +10%". Whether there is a % sign or not, these values are the same.
