FFXIV Mage's Ballad Icon

Mage's Ballad is a Level 30 Bard spell. Completing the quest "A Song of Bards and Bowmen" rewards the player with Mage's Ballad and the Bard Soul Crystal. Mage's Ballad deals unaspected damage to a target with a potency of 100. It increases the critical hit rate of all nearby party members by 2% for 30 seconds. Mage's Ballad activates the Song Gauge, where it displays the time remaining for its duration. Every time critical damage is dealt by Caustic Bite or Stormbite, the trigger effect Repertoire activates, resetting the recast times of Bloodletter and Rain of Death, allowing Bard to bypass the long cooldown of the skills.

Etymology Edit

A ballade is "a poem normally composed of three stanzas and an envoi. The last line of the opening stanza is used as a refrain, and the same rhymes, strictly limited in number, recur throughout."
