Hello all fellow minstrels!
We will be getting a lot of changes so who knows how the balance between stances will go, but let's talk about it like it is for the last month we have about our dear minstrel, who is still the same.
As most of you know, harmony stance is a stance that makes two different types of players argue.. In my server, a lot of people are totally sure, that harmony is Not the best at healing, not the best at dps (Some even say that it's the Weakest stance of a minstrel and isn't good for anything). I don't totally agree with that because in some situations (Easier instances) you don't really need heals but you need group heals and that's where harmony is the best.
I myself am not an out of stance coda healer, I barely never use coda. I stack my healing ballads and then just start playing anthems without touching coda (It's my last emergency heal, but it's almost never needed). So what is bad when you don't use coda anyway at using harmony? Nothing. You can still stand still like before and heal as much as you can with triumphant spirit/raise the spirit (I like raise the spirit more personally) So harmony may actually be a nice stance.. you can also help with dps.
But as you look at the combat analysis, it shows that only by doing balladx3+coda, your dps is max 500dps and healing is max 1k hps (We're not taking into account that most use other healing skills too), which isn't the best. The people of my server are right about that, this is more of a support type of mini (They mostly play in yellow, I prefer blue though) but it's not that bad as your healing skills all are still unlocked unlike in warspeech.
PVMP HARMONY MINIES
I have played a warg recently a lot and what I have noticed is that I hate harmony minstrels. Why? Because they are impossible to reach because in every 6 sec they release a long-distance coda and break my stealth (hipsing before entering isn't really worth it) so they ruin my plans. Some wargs keep going, most run away. If they keep going they're great targets for freeps so you can really just hunt them down (most sneaky wargs are shadow full crit wargs.. yum!). If they run away then you're saved from evil attacks of terrible beasts, yay. While fighting with delving bosses, the fraid leader always asks to do big aoes to find stealthed wargs. Harmony is good for that too.
So it's the biggest annoyance to wargs so you eliminate an important part of the group (sometimes craids even are 1/4 wargs, so you destroy 25% of their ability to destroy you, which makes your need to heal smaller so you can just harmony)
I don't know if I made it to my point, but I really think that harmony is the most useful in moors and everything else is just the choice of a player and their playstyle
