In regards to instruments, we are currently looking into adding an instrument that will add another song, but I can’t promise a time frame just yet.

This obviously pleases me (as a 2 song bard) but I have to wonder - will this set off another firestorm in the community? Or it will be largely useless because it is locked behind content only people who already have 3 song bards will do? Who knows. I mean realistically as I said, it makes me happy in theory - but then I realize that I probably won't be able to access it so people who are oats monks or something will be getting it as drops making it even harder for me to scrape by as a bard in higher tier content...

It'd be better than nothing, but I feel that any Brd wanting to be any good would likely already have a Daurdabla to 90, as that also gives the song duration bonus that this new instrument likely wouldn't have.

I would feel that, given that it, right now, would be a poor man's Daurdabla, it's likely not going to be from content so high level that you wouldn't get it unless you were decked out anyway. It's likely that it'll be something at least somewhat "readily obtainable", such as a Bayld purchase or maybe something from the next set of Delve areas.

I want to be "any good" but I have no way of getting a dharp short of winning one in a bonaza. It's just not realistic. I only play a few hours a week, but that doesn't mean I don't want to be as good as reasonably possible when I play.

Anyway, I agree with you the trade off will be duration and the ability to upgrade to 4 songs. I'm cool with that.

They may make it one of those content-specific instruments. "Three songs in delve only" would be right in line with other content-specific bonus instruments we've had in the past.
