BARD

The bard is the perfect group mate. They can heal with their fine songs, crowd control your enemies, slow them down and buff your whole group. They are support players but know how to hold their own in melee-fights as well. They wear studded armor, a short sword and a small shield while rushing into battle. They enter the battle with a song but often leaves it with their sword bloodied.

The bard is the crowdcontrol master and their mesmerize song is perhaps their best weapon both in one versus one battles and in clan versus clan fights. The healing song is the best group heal in the game. When it comes to one on one battles, the bard is doing ok, but is perhaps not the most scary class to face. If their crowdcontrol works they can win against any class though and as they level up and their songs are getting more powerful they become a scary opponent for any class.
