    I've tried different wordings in google to try and get a list of what the different bard songs do. I don't mean the special ones each kit gives. I mean the basic vanilla bard. There's 4 or 5 isn't there? Is there a web page that lists them and I'm just dumb when it comes to googling?

    * The Ballad of Three Heroes: All allies gain +1 to hit, +1 damage, and +1 saving throws.

    * The Tale of Curran Strongheart: All fear effects on the bards' allies are removed and they gain an immunity to fear effects for as long as the song lasts.

    * Tymora's Melody: All allies gain +1 luck, +3 saving throws, and +10% to their lore skill and thief skills.

    * The Song of Kaudies: All allies gain a 50% chance to shrug off the effects of spells such as Silence, Shout, Great Shout, Command, or any other sound-based attacks.

    * The Siren's Yearning: The bards’ enemies must save vs. spell or be enthralled, unable to take action unless 1 turn passes or they take damage.

    * War Chant of Sith: When played, the bards' allies gain -2 bonus to AC, +10% resistance to slashing, piercing, crushing, and missile attacks, and they regenerate 2 hit points every round. Works only in combat.

    I wasn't aware that kits were a thing for bards in icewind dale, i thought those were only introduced in baldur's gate. :confused:

    They were introduced in IWD:EE. But because IWD's meta is very different from BG2's, overall kit effectiveness is also very different in IWD:EE.

    Kits with abilities that grant them increased staying power are more valuable in IWD:EE, for example.

    By the way, you can get the same information if you go to the Records page of your Bard and click "Kit Description"
