Now were talking! Go go bards! I may have to play a bard out of principle. Do they have mez too? X-)
Well....At 34 points spent in the Bard tree, they unlock the ability "Verse of Captivation" which is a single target 8 second mez. Instant cast, and only one target can be mezzed at any given time via that skill.
However, at 25 points spent in the tree, a talent opens up called "Verse of Fascination" which is described as this:
Plays a Verse that mesmerizes surrounding enemies for 8 seconds. Any damage on affected enemies removes the effect.
That takes 1.5 seconds to cast, and has a 30 second cooldown.
In short, yes, Bards get a mez or two :D
