The problem with buff threads is there's inevitably someone who doesn't want the class to be able to access the same things most other classes can access..
So when someone says give Barbarians Evasion at 2, someone else says "no way that would be OP" only it wouldn't at all it would just help Barb's be less mana sponges for healers and more durable. It would put Barbarians as LITTLE closer to Fighters and Monks, and Fighters+Monks. It would give Bard's (with a D) access to a 2 level evasion splash besides Rogue that actually has synergy with Warchanter (such as it is, it's an awful weak tree frankly).
Likewise removing Bard's unnecessary and highly arbitrary alignment restriction would allow it to be less weak... Not OP, not even "almost as good as other classes" just less weak. Because it would open up some of the options that other classes enjoy freely.
Now you will of course defend your stance that Only Bard's shouldn't have such great synergies with other classes (simply because someone at TSR, before WotC once decided that music is chaotic and Bard's are rogish archetypes, and for no better reason that that) as though everything I said isn't 100% true and you paid it no attention whatsoever... Because when someone entrenches themselves into a position it doesn't matter whats actually right... Bard's would be over powered if they could multiclass with Pali and Monk, and it doesn't matter that a Bladeforged Sorc can already do this and do it better. It only matters that you are going to defend what you said, the rest of the realities within the game be damned LOL
