Considering a TR into bard and have a few questions about the tree:

1) What are the cool downs on blow by blow, en pointe, and low blow?
2) Am I assuming correctly that Bard fast movement stacks with striding but not monk or barb movement?

Anyone have experience with this?
Thanks.

Good questions. Heres what i learned from one and a half life as a swashbuckler:

1) blow by blow cooldown seems to be around 10 seconds. Its for sure longer than stunning fist (6 seconds) and shorter than coup de grace: see below.

En pointe sorry but i cannot tell u, used it a bit but not regularly.

The cooldown for slap in the face (the variant of the buckler knockdown but with an empty offhand) is for for sure 2 or most likely 3 seconds longer than the coup de grace cooldown (which is 12 seconds (according to wiki)).

2) no clue. Othet than that the stacking of monk and bard foot speed is irrelevant since they do not mix.

I hope for u that somebody comes up with better answers but heres for now ^.^

Well, considering monk / bard combo is still impossible, that's a moot question. :)

Swashbuckler Fast Movement is listed as a Music bonus to movement speed in the Effects log. On my barb 1 / bard 9, I tested both with and without SB Fast Movement to see how far I could run in 10 seconds without any Striding bonus. I definitely ran further with SB Fast Movement enabled, so it looks like they do stack. I don't have any bard / druids or bard / barb / druids, so I don't know if either Fast Movement stacks with wolf-form run speed.

Thanks for the responses. I'm considering a THF build that takes advantage of the various special attacks in Swashbuckler chain and the Warpriest core ability with divine might. Getting ready to post my thoughts for dissection. Thus helps and I appreciate it.
