I, current leader off all chruchers, have to say that the overpowered build known as 'The Bardcher' suffered from a horrible nerf with the enhancements pass.
While I have always recommended to make such builds for easy quest completions, I will now no longer recommend it. Bard got a nerf and so did bardcher.

On a side note, I now expect everybody to make purple dragon knight melee sorcerers
