Im a Level 50 (dinged few days ago) skald, 50 Sword, 43 BS and 2 parry with Foe Slayer...Started RvRing yesterday (2L8 so far)

Been reading up on Skald SC templates and was wondering about Quick?

Lots of skalds leave it off of template to front load damge on 1st few hits.
I know this leaves me with a huge swing time (seams like my SB can swing 3 times in same time period) so should I cap quick to rectify this??

What do the high RR skalds do regards quick??

I would seriously consider droping +power and increasing your energy resist and charisma.
Drop quickness as frontload with MOP5 hurts (Tivook is teh ouch)

If you want to do any soloing or going to hit a target more than 2-3 times, cap quick.
With the ToA melee speed items it looks like people are going for fastest spd possible ;)
I never regret capping quick on my template.

Soloing must be fun for sword users. Couple swing and you are ooe :D
Then again I was thinking to make sc with capped quick for a change but Im hammer user who's solo & duo alot (provoke for the win).

Get in a few high utility point jewels/items like quest items and TG items, and you will not have ny problems capping everything.

I even had points to get 7 in parry in my template ^^, w all stats(except qui which i left at 60, charisma 65), resists, skills capped.

With ablatives, self heal procs and a few TG armour parts. + AoF and AP3 you will be a stlong solo skald.
