    I've got a question about the ended valentine event boss. I have seen he is invulnerable to barding, does that mean bard players have no chance to fight against it? Are any other invulnerable monsters?

    Most high-end bosses (like the ones from events) are not successible to provocation and peacing (would be too easy). Many can still be discorded though.

    You would need to switch to other tactics for these, but the most effective way for Cupid is using tamers.

    I think it's unfair you can't use some barding in order to attack high level bosses, if the boss is strong will easy kill minions and will be difficult to kill it even barding, but you can tame other powerful creatures and use them to atack with them. As I told before I think it's unfair

    I mean, honestly, is it "unfair" that my RP cook/beggar can't participate in the event? Why won't Cupid give me holiday coins when I beg him to do so and why doesn't he pick up my poisoned cookies and eats them?

    All fun aside, no, it isnt "unfair" in many ways:

    1) Not "unfair" as long as there are enough other options for all templates to do something and earn good cash. Bards have their respective advantages in other events and other opportunities. Actually, bards are pretty valuable during tier3 and tier4 of the champ.

    2) It's also not unfair in general, because you have 15 character slots. You could, like anybody else use your tamer when they are needed, and use your bard whenever that guy is needed. Or make a bard/tamer combo?

    Now, I want some input from YOU: How do you think, a good inclusion of the bard skills vs. Cupid would look like? Can you describe me, what bard mechanics you would want to work on high-end bosses? What impact would that have on the difficulty of the bosses? Can you include the bard skills without making them overpowered? If you can answer all these question, and have good ideas, you could simply open a discussion thread and propose some changes. Or you send your ideas via PMs directly to Telamon.

    i'm not a experienced player so it's pretty difficult to tell you my opinion about it but I think allow barding it (maybe with much less success rate) would be ok. But i'll let you know as soon i reach a good level to battle any boss ;)
