Hey, I'm finally taking up trying a bard out so I need some help with a good solid drow build (28pt)

I want to be good at crowd control and buffs...maybe healing as well. What do I need to know?

Thanks!:p

Go high Charisma, get at least a 12 Con and take Spellsinger. Put your level ups in Charisma. Go pure and don't forget to put points in Perform. As a drow, the finesse path with rapiers is natural. You should be able to qualify for the TWF feats, but you may not want to spend the feats. In that case, either get a mithril light shield or go ranged, though repeater Bards are pretty feat intensive. Your combat style will be up to you, after all, it's not the main point of the build. However, neglecting it entirely would be a mistake.
