    Solar can we get some clarification on the adjustment to Jam Fest to match client behavior? And then is it true that only the bard receives the benefit from that AA on group or AE songs?? Ie Jam fast would only improve the resists of a song on the bard from 150 to 160 while the rest of the group would still be 150? Is that true? Thanks!

    It would be good to know. Even if just to say "ha ha, I have 10 more resistance than you do."

    err. I suppose that would be easy enough to test by seeing the delta between yourself and others in group?

    Ya, that would be easy enough to test, I guess a better way to ask the question is, is that a part of the intended change, was it there before, or does the jam fest adjustment have nothing to do with this and is something else entirely

    There is a thread that explains this, but I am not seeing it with search, you may have better luck with search than I am having. IIRC the server was giving the bonus to the group server side, but not client side.

    The way it works is that instead of the caster being considered as having a higher level for the spell formula, the target is checked. So it doesn't matter if the bard casting the song has Jam Fest, the one receiving the benefit of the buff is what's checked. Hence only bards can receive the extra benefit, regardless of who sings the song. This wasn't changed until after AK to work the opposite way where the caster is checked instead.

    The original devs should have named it "Killer Solo" or something similar :D
