    My Bard uses chest blessing + super-haggle to make some nice profits. The chest-blessing stacks with loot gems, which also stacks with loot bonuses from the Devs. I like it on my Bard, and my Bard has a super-high charisma so it has never failed to buff the chest. The Knock ability of the second tier of the dragonmark is also super-handy. Also, my Bard can just UMD teleport scrolls and can outright cast D-Door - so the Travel mark was never very tempting. I've gotten some very nice items, and made some very tidy profits off loot runs while using chest-blessing.


    I like it for that specific character, but would not take it on a non-maxed charisma character. I fully understand the misgivings about the 'mark, and am only relating my own experiences with it. Again, if you are not prepared to max out charisma - I'd skip this Dragonmark.

    I got the dragonmark on my warchanter bard, her charisma is around 30, the chest buffs fails around half of the times I use it. With the knock it is still useful for me, but since it was an experiment I will exchange the feat some day.

    Wow that's a really stingy DC, considering it costs you a Feat and several AP to even get the skill to begin with....but having to add, basically, 2 CHA per level, just to keep pace? Thats almost as bad as keeping your DCs up on a DC caster.

    No wonder its only ever Bard hagglebots that take it...they should really change your roll to 1d20+1/2 char lvl+cha mod, so that you could use it on a non-CHA-class human too :P

    Or Half-Orcs since they're the only other race that can take the Dragonmark.

    Kinda bad on Half-Orcs since they get a penalty to Charisma.

    -2 doesn't amount to all that much in the long run.
