Engaging Banter uses the Bard's biting wit to distract an opponent from his combat prowess. He can skip melee attacks due to this. Usage: cast engaging banter at target


Use Soothe the Beast for NPCs that are unaffected by this.

Can give Bard Points. The difficulty of the NPC seems to affect this. Possibly it's a matter of how many attacks are skipped, how much damage the attacks would do, or the exp/dues value of the NPC.
