Wind Instrument Skill


The timbre produced by Wind Instruments is especially good for harming enemies. Many Bards prefer to use Wind Instruments when performing Lullabies and Elegies.

  • One of the primary magic skills of the Bard. It is used when a Wind Instrument is equipped. Singing Skill is also taken into account when the Wind Instrument Skill is being used.

Note: Since Wind Instruments are only equippable by Bards, this skill is disregarded when subbed.
