AoOLute Banner

Part of the Agents of Oryx Abilities.

In addition to the Inspired buff, this unique lute also deploys a stationary banner that gives Berserk to allies in range, functioning in a fashion similar to the Marble Seal and Battalion Banner. As a bonus, it will also inflict Slowed on enemies within 4 squares, making this lute incredibly flexible in usage, as you can use this lute both as a DPS buffer, or as an escape tool.

With the aforementioned Battalion Banner also equipped, the Bard can achieve the very powerful combination of having Berserk and Damaging simultaneously on their own, making this lute a supreme choice for solo or small-group play where there are no Warriors.

Compared to the T6 Skyward Lute, this lute grants +3 DEX to increase the DPS of the Bard. You will be missing out on 1 DEF along with the group defense buff on activation, as well as the +20 HP and +20 MP that all T6 abilities posess. This lute also costs 20 more MP per cast than the T6 lute.

Because the cooldown is equal to the buff durations, you can continually apply Berserk and Inspired to all allies within range of the banner. Only the Deafening Blast that slows enemies has a downtime.
