This is a list of bard skills and trainers. For those of you that are
'special' it's organized as follows:
-Things are listed by level with the skills you can get at that level listed below
-After each skill is listed there are parentheses. In these parentheses things are listed in this order: number of prac points needed and then trainers that teach the skill
-After the parentheses most skills have comments unless what the skill does is obvious and doesn't need comments. If you need an explanation on those kills, go buy a brain (they pop in grells).
-You may see something about reagents after this if the spell needs a reagent. If it's something that's sold in town and not in the one you checked, try another. If it's one you need to pop where it pops should be listed as well.
Also please keep in mind that I have only gone through this as a lightie so I can't actually confirm trainers in darkie towns and have to go off of either word of mouth or where things were taught in based off the original code.
PLEASE DO NOT PESTER ME WITH QUESTIONS ABOUT SKILLS. I DID THIS TO BE HELPFUL, NOT TO BE YOUR BITCH.
That being said, if you encounter any errors or anything you think should be changed post a note on the info board with the details.
Anyway, I hope that this is helpful in some way. -Naia

Level 55 Skills:
-Fear (9 pracs, Ice Princess-> need a phial of moonlight from Aurelia to get to her), keeps enemies from fighting back or makes them flee. This spell is fantastic and highly useful. It is worth all the effort to get it.
Level 60 Skills:
-Tumble (12 pracs, in Tireths), goes off more often then dodge
Level 65 Skills:
-Paralyze (12 pracs, In frosties, same place as ice shield), I never actually learned this one because I heard it wasn't very useful against mobs (it uses a con check and many high level mobs have a 30 con). This skill would be more useful in the arena against other players then in a regular fighting situation.
Level 70 Skills:
-Trip (12 pracs, in Tireths (same place as Tumble)), This is one of the best skills on the mud. At higher levels its entirely possible you'll keep your opponent on their ass the entire fight. This skill is self-explanatory and if you don't understand you're a moron, get the skill anyway, its god.
-Song of the Ward (12 pracs, Swami) When you first go to the swami to learn this skill he will hand you four silver coins and tell you to give them to the following people within an hour:

>>Dwarf near the entrance to the mines that lead to warlocks (east of knight stone)
The person you wish to ward to must be consented. You can also ward to your pets but not if there is no light in the room they're in.
