Not asking for a huge bladesinger buff, just that its spell progression be revised to full, or full -1.
I disagree on the bardsong AC stacking. Disregarding monk dip shenanigans and ICE and dex/str, the AC landscape post-change would look like this:
(thats just the base capabilities of the builds, not factoring any feats or PRCs)
- Spoiler: show
- Arcane: +5 (dodge)
Divine Nature: +3/6 (natural CL 30-40)
Divine Cleric: +5 (dodge) + 3/6 (Deflection CL 30-40)
Bard: +10 (shield/song cl 20) + ~2 (deflection)
Noncaster: ? (varies wildly, there is huge potential in the prcs though, swash gets loads out of the box)
Not to say that they "get AC" via curse song, have 60% conceal out of the box and get requiem. I'd say that bards are plenty strong as is, no need to buff them indirectly.
Edit: i agree with Cervantes, this will prevent the endless back and forth we usually get in any discussion.
