For all you D&D Insider subscribers out there, you can get a big, big preview of the Bard now.
How big a preview? Ten levels worth. Yes, it doesn’t have all of its powers, but there’s enough for anyone who wants to play a bard in my games to do so.
Let’s say this: They’re completely and utterly awesome. Their first level daily power Stirring Shout is the most astonishing power vs solos and elites. There are also bard-only rituals, although none are included in the preview (alas!)
What a nice thing to log in and find!
