I wanted to just say thank you for giving Bard a buff. I've loved him and been playing him since he was on PBE. In Live though, I had to stop after a while. He has some very strong counters that, no matter how good someone is, you just can't seem to do against.
I believe this buff will really help him out and attract more players to him. Currently patching so I can test out these changes.
Edit: Boo for taking new range away D:
