    Default Current State of Anthem

    Anyone who has had an anthem item in the past likely knows that it has had a dark and sordid past, usually accompanied with whispers of 'will it work this time?' This thread is intended to be a place to store the current state of anthem items.

    State of anthem as of:
    Update: 22
    Patch: ~

    Elyd Edge - working
    Stormsinger Cloak - working
    Blasting Chime - working
    Topaz of Anthem - working

    Testing method:
    16 bard / 2 fighter / 2 ranger female elf.
    Standing next to mailbox in Gianthold. Record base number of songs, sing Inspire Courage. Equip anthem item to be tested, and cast extended Rage. When rage timer has expired (5:12), song should have regenerated.

    Blasting Chime is Epic Blasting Chime Tier 1.
    Elyd Edge is Epic Elyd Edge with nothing slotted.
    Stormsinger Cloak is base item.
    Topaz of Anthem is slotted into Topaz slot in Epic Cape of the Roc.

    Thumbs up Thank You!

    Thank you for posting this thread. I hadn't tried an Anthem item in at least a year or two, but now that Bards have gained some recent popularity and I'm running one again... This is very helpful for all the bard players out there.

    Default Inspiring Echoes

    Does Inspiring Echoes effect work on Epic Elyd Edge?

    Yes. Or at least it did the last time I played my epic bard. Unfortunately, it does nothing to Spellsong Vigor, but since the description says, "Inspire Heroics, Inspire Competence, or Song of Freedom," this is probably WAI.

    Does Anthem stack with Bard Virtuoso II song regeneration? Someone just edited the wiki to say that it doesn't any more. http://ddowiki.com/index.php?title=A...0&oldid=144661

    That I am currently unable to test as that character doesn't have Virtuoso II, but if someone else wants to verify, that'd be cool

    Tested on my level 21 Bard Spellsinger with tier 3 Epic Blasting Chime:
    A. Sing 2 songs, Rage (6 minute timer), not wearing Epic Blasting Chime, 1 single song regenerates with 1m4s left on Rage.
    B. Sing 2 songs, Rage (6 minute timer), put on Epic Blasting Chime, 2 songs regenerate at 1m10s and 1m3s left on Rage.

    Spellsinger song regen does stack with Anthem still.

    It's working for me with Inspire Heroics. Have not tried with Inspire Competence or the other one it's supposed to work on.

    Sorry for the necro, but this thread is linked to via DDOwiki, so figured it's more viable for my little comment.

    Anthem does indeed stack with the bard Virtuoso ability. However, what wasn't clear in the OP was if different sources of anthem stack with each other (when I first read it I thought you had all 4 anthem items equipped and they all worked). Alas, it seems they do not. At least, the Topaz of Anthem and Epic Elyd's Edge do not stack. I have an item with the topaz and EEE and Virtuoso, and only get back 2 songs every 5 minutes or so. (spend the last 25 minutes testing it with only one and the other equipped then both to make sure... can't turn virtuoso off).

    Just so we all know.
