Neverwinter’s all-new Bard class will be added to the game in its next major module launching later this year on PC and consoles. The Bard class will be the first new class to join the critically-acclaimed Dungeons & Dragons free-to-play action MMORPG after the Oathbound Paladin class was first introduced in 2016.
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.
Episode 3: The Odious Court, the final episode for Neverwinter’s latest module, will release on PC June 8 and on consoles July 6.
