Reaper Life 3 Sound and Fury Bard (Half-Elf 20 Bard)

Ina went to 30 this life to get her final Arcane PL needed for Epic Completionist, so this guide is to 30.

This is my usual Spellsinger evoker/enchanter build, but with Warchanter secondary ever since the changes to songs, and just enough in Swash for fast movement. The result is a fast, durable utility caster that can also raid heal with ease.

I re-spec the entire Spellsinger tree for epics; Suggestion for a SLA for heroics, switch to Reverberate for Epics due to charming suffering a nerf at that point. Any Arcane destiny is fine in Epics; I chose Draconic for extra Fire DPS to pair with the Warlock Dilettante. You can also go with Exalted Angel in epics and legendary content for better heals and DCs and wings for even more mobility, at the cost of a few caster levels.
