i use a mystic/mage with provo, and can do any miniboss in abyss, hunt big creatures, and soloing a lot of stuff, wonderful char for big guys in a group.
Just a hint, you can provo the mobs to attack your colossus :p

mysticism does more damage than a GD, it have more life and you can cast them :p

I recommend you a minimum of 115 mysticism, being 120 the best option. You will need focus for mysticism as you need eval for magery.
The template im running is :

magery 105
eval 115
mystic 120
focus 120
music 120
provo 120
necro 20
spirit 40

I run with 105 magery, because you cast flames without fizzle. The necro/spirit allows me to transform into wraith for infinite mana and i have a crystalline ring that give me +20 magery and +20 focus.

is it solo farm? tmaps? any high end mobs?
Depends, I like to farm DH keys with my bard then run my sampire to solo dh. You can Provo cushides on swoop there also. I lure reptalons and prove them onto Miasma. Add lockpick and carto and you can solo any level chests. Or all of the above

Champ spawns, if done in certain locations can be very easy with a Bard. Such as Valor, you can Discord Meph (or whichever) and Provoke the nearby Greater Dragons (vaugely remember using Parragons) on it, along with left over level 4 spawn for a quick easy gank. Serrado is another good one.

Recently also used 8+ Diseased Blood Elementals to kill Discorded Unbound Energy Vortex's in Shame. Swoop & Miasma with Parragon Cu's and Rend respectively.

My favourite thing as a Bard is getting one big monster with tons of HP Discorded and Provoke ganked by 8 good meleer damagers, plus any additional casters around the outside, then add in my own pets/summons, Tribulation and Despair and watch the epic number scroll. Past invasions were great for this.
