Bards/Clown are made to be a support character in PvP and WoE as most of their skills are AoE buffs together with their opposite gender which is Dancers their buffs are truly awesome which can turn the tables in battles. However this guide will only expose what's inside the bard's potential to be a support/killer. You freeze the enemies using frost joke skill and Vulcan Arrow them with arrow of wind delivering insane damage. And this build is very annoying for other players (including your guild mates) as you can freeze everyone you see on your screen at 40% chance unless they are undead property or wearing unfrozen armors, ask your buddies to wear marcs then frost joke in battle and non unfrozen armor beares will surely get their a**es kicked. Another annoying one is their Tarot Card of Fate skill which cast random ailments on your target.

Note: You can also use this guide as a reference for dancers/gipsy but dancers stun their enemies at 50% chance instead of freezing.
