- The caster must be in view of the bard at all times while the spell is being cast. It is not necessary for the caster to be able to see the bard, but the bard must be able to watch as the spellcaster prepares his spell so that the bard may adjust his performance accordingly.
- The bard must be able to engage in a performance of some type - if he is silenced and bound, he's not going to be augmenting must of anything until he has gotten himself free and able to use his skills.
Just as bard may attempt to augment the effects of an ally's spell, they may also attempt to impair the power of an enemy's spells. Using one of these effects requires the same steps as augmenting an ally's spells. This means the bard must begin his performance before the enemy spellcaster he wishes to impair - if the spellcaster then chooses not to cast a spell, the bard will have wasted his action for the round, though not his spell slot as these are only expended if a spell is cast and an attempt to affect it is made.
