Neverwinter Odious Court Will Be Released Next Week Together With The Bard New Class
Neverwinter Odious Court Will Be Released Next Week Together With The Bard Class.
MMOBEEP found out that the brand new Bard class has arrived and will be executing his musical première beside the Neverwinter Odious Court’s launch this upcoming week. The Bard operates as a DPS class or a support class, based on which players decide to go with the Songblade path or the Minstrel.
“For players that choose the Bard class, they will become a modern fighter who uses the power of song to enhance their allies and defeat their enemies. Weaving their way through their enemies with various flashy attacks, Bards can seamlessly burst into songs burning their enemies with blazing performance. Also, when in a more supportive role, Bards can dance around the battlefield filling the ears of their allies with rejuvenating carols and defensive minutes while preparing for the final curtain call.”
But that’s not all that’s coming to the game this upcoming week. Apart from a brand new class and Sharandar’s final story arc, next week’s update will additionally rebalance progression with a level decrease from level 80 down to level 20.
“Levels in Neverwinter were a big focus when starting, but then when reaching endgame, the focus turns to item level,” said developer Cryptic Studios. “As we looked to improve the leveling experience, we felt it was a good time to connect better with D&D while also helping players understand what to focus on to improve their character.”
“That brought us to bring the levels back to 20 and have them be milestones that mark progress in your journey, which all ties in better with core D&D gameplay. Those milestones are now a linear journey with new tutorials, gear changes, and a better experience for new players learning Neverwinter,”
the studio stated.
Several of the much older adventure zones will also be temporarily shut down while the developers rebalance them for the renewed progression. The team ensures to share more info in a future blog.
