Swords of Legends Online is continuing its week of class reveals, showcasing the next class on its list: the Bard. The Bard class sees players deal damage from afar or heal allies, depending on the mastery they choose to pursue.
SOLO's Bard class brings the music-wielding support role to the MMO, allowing players to either damage foes with their music or "heal their allies and shield them from damage" according to the press release from Gameforge.
"Journey to the Mountain of Wondrous Creation and you’ll hear melodious sounds drifting through the peach trees. It is here where the students of Zhenren Chixia were split after ill-fortune befell prized student Zhengyang, which led to a group leaving Taihua Mountain to form their own Bardic school. Based upon a deep connection to nature, the Bards learned to hone their musical skills to create powerful melodies to use in combat."
Like the other classes revealed this week before it, the Bard also has two Masteries to specialize in: Dissonance and Harmony. The music-themed specializations allow Bards to either focus in on healing with Harmony or using Dissonance to use their music to damage and cause "distress to their foes"
Swords of Legends Online is revealing a new class every day this week, having revealed the Reaper, Berserker and Spellsword earlier. Currently there are 6 planned classes for the MMORPG, with the Spearmaster and the Summoner left to have the veil pulled back remaining. Swords of Legends will be published by Gameforge in Europe, North America and Oceania, bringing the popular Chinese MMORPG to the West for the first time.
