I sincerely hope that bards won't be useless hippies, but a sought after support class. Might be a bit of a short post, but i had to get it of my chest

    I could live with bards performing in taverns^^
    Give me hot stew and a drink with a bard in the corner performing the bear and the maiden fair, I'll give a hefty tip!

    It has been stated that they want all the classes to feel wanted/needed in every party. Still think that includes the bards.

    I think (and hope) they will be mostly effective with buffs, CC and healing/damaga prevention

    Definitely hyped for Bards, that's what i'm going to play first, and i'm sure devs will do a great job designing classes. I'm fan of games where everyone has a specific role to play in a team.

    @Playful2504 Yeah, the only thing I'm afraid of is that it might be hard to level a bard if you are alone someday

    The dead do not squabble as this land’s rulers do. The dead have no desires, petty jealousies or ambitions. A world of the dead is a world at peace

    It would be great to just get a squad of bards playing really bad screeching music and place them underneath an enemy castle, best tactic works 10/10

    @autumnleaf Making them kill themselves before the siege even starts... I like the sound of that

    Yeah it might be, we'll see how the second class we can choose will influence our autonomy, but we might be forced to group with other people for certain quests, personally it suits my playstyle.

    Of course it would be even better if they went invisible inside the castle and just creeped out the enitre enemy team, so much potential but well at the end of the day they still burn like a torch when hit with a fireball c: alas no body is perfect...

    I don't want them to heal at all. I love the idea of a full support class with buffs and debuffs. Maybe an attack or two to get you by but nothing powerful. Thinking along the lines of a Ragnarok Bard or Shiroe from LH (in the support aspect)

    Damn someone beat me to make the first bard post...
    Well i am going to play Bards no matter how they will end up.
    Siren or Soul Weaver most likely, and of course melee tank or support dps.
    (As if there is any better combination then a plate wearing and spear/helbard swinging singing bard on the frontline *pfffff*)

    I think they once said that melee bards will most likely buff allies around them with crit buffs or something in that direction, which would be pretty nice in my opinion ;D

    They just have to give us the ability to play backpipes. It will sort itself out eventually. xD
    Imagine it... Suddenly they hear the sound of backpipes in the distance, and over the next hour or so it just gets louder and louder, until everything they hear is the screeching of backpipes.

    Well, you can combine them with any other class to make it the "support" you want to be.
    There will be people wanting to play as "useless hippies" aswell. Let them have the Bard/Bard :p

    Well bards with augmentations might fucking kick ass, not sure about bard/bard though.

    I have to say, as someone who had a bard-necromancer with a pan flute of the dead. (animate dead spell able to be cast twice per dawn.) then he dipped into bard/10 levels wizard(necromancy)/6 (before the campaign ended.)

    this is an accurate image to represent how it basically worked.

    To add to it, a great song that embraces the type of bards I hope to meet in my journies of Verra.
    Although this could be anyone ;) if creative enough.
