Truly a force multiplier, the bard weaves songs of glory and conquest, inspiring his comrades to ever greater heights. The bard knows secret and powerful words, is able to speak into being terrible nightmares, or convince foes to become friends.
Bards are a tactical support class and will have much of their significance based on mobility and placement in the battle scenario. This does not mean they are are only support focused and they will have a wide range of abilities to choose from. They will likely offer proximity-based or proc-based healing that is lower than that of a Cleric.
