    Default Bardic Inspiration - Buffing Groups: A request

    Could we please, please (pretty please) get a version of bardic inspiration that uses 12 songs at a go that casts the buff on everyone in a 20 meter radius?

    Love the changes but they way it works now is just tedious when running raids.

    I totally agree, though even in regular quests this is tedious. There should be a better way. The single target version needs to stay as is for when you only want to sing for one person, but there should be a group version as well. My ideal group song would have some smarts to it though:
    1) It detects the number of people in range.
    2) It will play one continuous song. I’m so tired of super short clips of different songs and would enjoy hearing a little music.
    3) The duration of the song is based on the number of people within range, with each person adding a specified amount of time (such as the current duration.)
    4) The song buff is applied to one person at a time, with the buff applied at the end of their section of the song. They could run off once they get their buff.
    5) If someone that doesn’t have your song enters the area (you could run to them as well) the duration is increased so that person also receives the song buff.
    6) For every person that receives a song buff, one song is deducted from the number of songs you have, and this would be deducted as you play / a song buff is given out.
    7) There would be a separate “stop group song” button that you could click to end the group song, if you choose.
    8) If you don’t have enough songs left during the group song, you will stop playing.

    In this way, you could click one button to play some music. People hear you playing and come gather around to “listen” (aka receive their buff).

    Default Bard songs

    Yes we need song need to be group wide. just sitting there casting on each player is real pain in the ass. Everyone wants to enter and start not wait for the bard finishing there song on everyone.

    Why in the world isn't this song AOE to begin with? I mean.. it's a bard. It's music that everyone in the area hears.

    This buff is incredibly tedious, and it's annoying to check if people have the buff or not (especially since it uses limited charges.)

    Please change it to AOE, like other AOE buffs!
