Aelunira is a versatile Human Spellsinger capable of CC and raid healing. With strong songs and Master's Touch for THF, she can even pitch in to help with trash mob cleanup. Not your typical stuck up Diva at all!
This build to me, is the perfect Spellsinger for my playstyle. Very versatile and fun build, capable of taking on multiple roles in any group. The gear is pushed as much as possible towards melee so she can contribute *something* when the primary aim of CC is really not that important and there's already a good healer around. This is not so much a newbie build anymore, as I've grown as a player it's become a wee bit more complicated. At the bottom I have listed what's attainable as a new player with much less grind than I've put in.
The Diva: Human, True Neutral, 20 Bard
Better Stats for people NOT addicted to too much INT on their Bards:
STR 28 (14 +2 tome +1 Litany +6 item +3 exceptional +2 rage spell)
DEX 15 (8 +6 item +1 Litany) or 16 (with +1 exceptional or +1 tome)
CON 30 (16 +2 tome +6 item +1 Litany +1 Human +2 exceptional +2 rage spell)
INT 9 (8 +1 Litany)
WIS 16 (8 +1 tome +6 item +1 Litany)
CHA 42 (18 +5 levels +2 tome +1 human +1 Litany +3 bard +2 capstone + 7 epic item +3 exceptional)
Revised Actual End Stats for SuperGrindy Goodness:
I got a +3 cha tome and ated it so updated stats. Really can't recommend the below stats, it was a noob mistake that was somewhat useful as I was on a new server, but really isn't that great at cap. For INT would go 10+2 tome or even 8+2 tome if I were to do this over, for those extra points in CON. Bards only get d6 like Rogues, but unlike the latter we don't get Evasion. Squooosh. I really regret not having that extra 20 HP.
STR 28 (14 +2 tome ((+1 Litany +6 item) OR (+7 item)) +3 exceptional +2 rage spell)
CON 28 (14 +2 tome +6 item +1 Litany +1 Human +2 exceptional +2 rage spell)
INT 13 (12 +1 Litany, could eat a +1 tome to hit runes in subt)
WIS 16 (8 +1 tome +6 concopp +1 Litany)
CHA 42 (18 +5 levels +3 tome +1 human +1 Litany +2 bard +2 capstone + 7 epic item +3 exceptional
Ending skills, HP, and SP in this post
Feats: Extend (1), Toughness (1), SF: Enchant (3), Maximize (6), Heighten (9), Quicken (12), Spell Pen (15), GSF: Enchant (18)
Skills: Aside from the usual, also has high Move Silently and enough in Jump to still jump over most mobs while dispelled. A bit in Spot to see hidden enemies before had Tharne's on (I would drop this on a future build/incarnation, it's really not worth it). I didn't have access to +2 tomes when starting her, would probably take 10 INT +2 tome on a richer life. Had a few points in Diplo for leveling.
Note for new players: "The usual" in skills is - Perform, Concentration, Balance, UMD, Haggle, and at least one point in Tumble. Starting INT of 8 will get that.

Note for new players:
Decent End Stats Attainable without Grindiness:
STR 26 (14 +2 tome +1 Human +6 item +1 exceptional (Warchanter ring) +2 rage spell)
DEX 8 (8)
CON 26 (16 +2 tome +6 item +2 rage spell)
INT 8 (8)
WIS 14 (8 +6 concopp)
CHA 38 (18 +5 levels +2 tome +1 human +2 bard +2 capstone + 6 item +2 exceptional (Warchanter ring)
Gear should be standard enough: Minos helm, Warchanter set, Bard's Cloak, Glacier set, one of the CON+6+GFL belts from Amrath, etc. Try to get a Dreamspitter and a metalline of pg two-hander at the minimum.
