Splitting your skills into two categories: Support & Damage, can improve your performance in PVP rather than focusing on one aspect of Bard Class.

Stat Tuning

This type of Stat Tuning is exclusively for PvP.

Swiftness750
Domination249
Crit1

Stat tuning in PvP is mostly fixed on all the advanced classes. The reasoning for this setup is that Swiftness increases your Atk. Speed, Move Speed, and reduces Cooldowns while Domination increases your damage against enemies who are affected with debuffs crowd control effects. The 1 point in Crit is used to enable critical hits in PvP.
