Welcome back!

Having all 4 bard skills at 120 gives great bonuses using the mastery's, making it a great "support" build. I personally find it a lot of fun to hunt with my bard, but it depends on your play style of course. It's certainly not the most efficient way to hunt, and if you are solo, the bosses wouldn't be possible. If you are looking for efficiency, adding disco to a tamer is a great combo.

I run 120x4 barding skills, 90 mysticism and focus, and 60 magery. I wear a non med 55 lmc suit and craft a ring and bracelet with +15 mysticism, +15 magery, +10 focus, and FCR 3. Then I wear a mystic's memento talisman for +10 focus and carry a +15 magery spellbook. This gives you 120 music, disco, provo, peace, mysticism, focus, and 105 magery. I can run both bard buffs in a group without running out of mana. 105 magery lets you cast 7th circle magery spells when needed. It's a great support build but not super great for solo stuff.

I a much surprised that, with 90 Focus plus 30 on jewels and Talisman you can run BOTH Masteries' songs in a non medable suit....

I mean, already Focus is a slower Mana Regen as Meditation, it cannot be actively used as Meditation can and on top of that you use also a non medable suit ?

How can you keep up with the Mana Consumption considering that not only the Mastery Bard songs can use up much mana but you are also a caster and, thus, need to cast spells on top of all that for Mysticism and Magery ?

Considering that Mana Regeneration only gives diminishing returns past 12, even if you have lots of Mana Regen on the suit I am much surprised to hear that you can support all of your Mana needs without running out....

What am I missing to consider ?

Sorry for the late reply. I have covid 19 and have not been online until recently. As I stated it's a great support bard build. Not so great for solo. With 30 MR, 55 LMC, 120 Focus there is no issue running both bard buffs. I don't have eval int in the build so I'm not really casting many magery spells other than curing poison, the occasional heal, gates, and recalls. I mostly use Stone Form and throw out a Rising Colossus here and there. Plenty of mana for all that. If you plan on spamming spells then no you probably can't run both bard masteries. Since the build doesn't have meditation why would I run a medable suit? Getting the extra 15 lmc is much more useful. Again it's a support build. I usually have this char following my main char in the group running buffs and dropping an RC when possible. If I were going to solo with this char I would modify the setup some.
