Prepare to play a class that is highly-skilled and adventurous in the Dungeons and Dragons world, as Neverwinter introduces the Bard class in the new module that is coming later this year to the game!
Check out the reveal trailer courtesy of folks at Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studio.
Here are the details on the Bard class and what this seemingly carefree player type can do via press release.
Neverwinter players who choose the Bard class can become daring heroes who possess the ability to weave magic into their swords and use music to inspire allies, manipulate minds and even heal wounds. Bards dress to impress, carry an instrument — like a trusty lute — for performances and never leave the tavern without a rapier or cutlass at their hip.
With the ability to be Songblades and Minstrels (the two Paragon Paths for the class) no two Bards will be exactly alike, as the class will offer one of the largest selection of spells and playstyles Neverwinter has to offer.
Songblades: Stylish swashbucklers who are as charming as they are deadly, that can dispatch their foes in style with swordplay, magic and music. This path is for those who want to be damage dealers who are comfortable close and mid range, and who want to make use of dramatic spells and supporting songs to enhance their natural combat ability.
Minstrels: Master musicians who prefer to use the power of their instrument to support their allies from afar with songs of bardic inspiration. These healers can also use music to unleash psychic attack spells and illusions.
Regardless of the Paragon Path adventurers choose, every Bard has an arsenal of unique abilities that will make them a versatile and powerful party member.
