neverwinter bard key art bannerBards seem to be all the rage this week as another MMORPG adds a bard class to their roster. Neverwinter will be rolling out their version of the Bard class on the preview server later today, giving players a chance to take it for a spin while the developers gather much-needed data.

“For players that choose the Bard class, they will become a stylish fighter who uses the power of song to enhance their allies and defeat their enemies. Weaving their way through their enemies with a variety of flashy attacks, Bards can seamlessly burst into songs burning their enemies with a blazing performance. Also, when in a more supportive role, Bards can dance around the battlefield filling the ears of their allies with rejuvenating carols and defensive minuets while preparing for the final curtain call.”

The Bard is the first class to be added to the D&D-inspired MMORPG since the Oathbound Paladin’s debut back in 2016. According to IGN, the new class will officially be coming out sometime later this year.

The third and final episode of the Sharandar expansion, The Odious Court, is also on track for release this month.

“In Episode 3: The Odious Court, adventurers travel to Dark Fey Mire to investigate the fetid swamp tainted by the mysterious dark magic of Magra Curse-Eye, the deceitful Green Hag, and her sisters from the Odious Court. With frog-like humanoids called Grungs claiming the area as their own, along with aggressive Dryads who have taken refuge within, adventurers need to restore safety to the region – all the while uncovering the role of the Odious Court. In addition to new story content, the last episode also brings exciting new features to Sharandar, including an epic battle against all three of the menacing hags, new bounties, new heroic encounters, new rewards and much more.”
