Overview

Instruments used by a Bard to add effects to fellow party members or a party's enemy. Most of the instruments give boosts to certain songs that can be sung by a bard, which is why it's always great to have the +1 versions of the instruments.

Buff songs sung with Wind have an area of effect of 10'.

Debuff songs sung with Wind have higher Magic Accuracy than songs sung with String. Mary's Horn and Piccolo +1 don't boost the songs' effects as much as Nursemaid's Harp and Sorrowful Harp, but the songs land more consistently.

Each +1 to a song on an instrument increases its duration by 10%, and also increases its effect. All buff songs have a base duration of 120 seconds, or 2 minutes.

The maximum equipment bonus to Wind Instrument Skill is +29, from Wind Torque, Wind Earring, Musical Earring, Minstrel's Coat, Bard's Cuffs, and Choral Cannions +1.

The maximum combined bonus to Wind and Singing is +52, from Chanter's Staff, Marduk's Tiara, Wind Torque, Wind Earring, Musical Earring, Minstrel's Coat, Choral Cuffs +1, Astute Cape, and Choral Cannions +1.
