Bard selection of level 5 spells is very weak.

I've checked the list of bard spells in PnP.

Here are some ideas I could see converted to DDO.

Unfettered Heroism (Bard 5 Transmutation)
* PnP: Spend more than one action point per round plus gain one free action point per round.
* DDO: Allies gain temporary HP and benefit from a short duration Action Boost (for example, 30 seconds of extra melee / ranged / spell power, run speed boost, regain one charge of Action Boost when effect expires). Longish cooldown... 2-3 minutes?
* Why: Back in the old days, it used to be: wait for Haste and go. Everyone has Haste built-in these days, this would bring back some fun.

Sympathetic Vibration (Bard 6 Evocation Sonic)
* PnP: Deals damage per round to structures / objects.
* DDO: Aura deals damage to non-living creatures (undead / constructs, ooze?), maybe apply slow / fortification debuff?
* Why: Bards have no very few spells that affect these types of foes.
