So with the dust settling from the dash through necromancers its time to turn my attention to a slightly less morbid topic, perhaps the furthest from raising dead as I can go: bards!
So as with the necro challenge before it the bard class will be taken for a test run across a selection of games and ill do a closing thoughts after a week or so of game time (deadlines, children, life depending)
As always ill rate the game on the following:
a. Feel of the class – how true its it to the general tropes of the class
b. Easy of play – intuitive for someone who hates reading instructions
c. Type of play – solo friendly, group based, tough support class etc
d. Fun – is it fun to play
e. Its place in its world – does the class interact in a special way with the world, is it shunned, revered, killed on sight or have a special club it gets to hang out in.
So the games I’m going to run with:
Dungeon and Dragons Online
Everquest 2 *
Lord of the Rings online
As per the necromancer challenge if I have missed off your favorite bard in a game then let me know!
Next post ill have some screen shots of the new challengers
*Everquest 2 has two types of bard, the troubadour and the dirge – I already have a 66th level dirge so Ill make a new troubadour and then compare both sides of the coin.
