Is anyone else having a problem posting? This has happened twice now in a week. I get an error message right away when I start typing and when I post the discussion it gets truncated with most of what I typed eliminated.

The design of these events is to get looting rights on as many enemies as possible as fast as possible with as much survivability as you can fit on your template. In that sense, a bard with some ability to do area damage isn't terrible, but the survivability from the bard skills and masteries are too situational/overkill to compete with the speed at which sampires or more dedicated mages and archers are able to deliver.
However, I do think a bard would be more valuable on a shard with a lower population than Atlantic, where you might require more mechanisms to control the spawn.
I had fun with a discord weaving mystic with Magery for a long time.
Loop is correct about Provo mastery. You can survive a massive gank in PvP with it too. It's pretty comical.
I can leave a paragon easy with peace so I am not moving them around causing trouble to others.
It is a much calmer way to play. I get 10 to 12 drops an hour on my bard. 12 to 14 on my melee toons. With less stress.
It does cost around 600 to 800 arrows an hour tho.
As for barding a treasures of event; it's not going to be the most productive method but it's a change of pace. You should probably add SW on the template for wildfire/thunderstorm to help with area damage. On a low population shard like Origin/Napa etc where the spawn is kinda slow you probably will be fine but if you are trying to use a bard on ATL you will be disappointed because people will come through kill everything on screen faster than you can provoke multiple things so at that point the barding skills are wasted.
