Song of Valor creates an aura of protection around a bard, increasing defensive strength (DS) by a base of +10 against melee, ranged, and bolt attacks and a +15 bonus to elemental target defense (TD). Training in the Bard Base circle provides an additional +1 DS for every 2 ranks above 1010. Song of Valor also helps defend against sheer fear.

Mana (MP) cost = 10 + 1 per 2 additional DS bonus

Renewal Cost

3 MP, +1 for every 5 DS bonus over +10.


As you begin to sing of valiant legends, you feel more protected.
You no longer feel a sense of protection.
