This is a repository of changes for Bards under the DragonRealms 3.0 changes.
Note that the majority of intended changes for Bards will not make the initial 3.0 releases.
Most of the Bardic abilities (screams, practices, evokes) will teach Bardic Lore as a stopgap measure.
Unlike previous incarnations, Bards will passively regenerate mojo. This has been released to Plat, so it should make initial release.
Major revisions to the recall system are in the process, to sync them up with evokes, though it may not make the initial release.
It should be noted that the intention is to release recalls to general use, with Bards retaining a hefty bonus. It is hoped that the additional inclusion of other guilds will spur more widespread use.
While screams will remain as is in the near future, the eventual plan is to move them into spell(s) with a similar set up to Dragon's Breath, and additional metaspells unlocking additional screams.
Eventually, all voice throws will be open to both Bards and Thieves.
New Circle Requirements
Bards will eventually have a Bardic Lore req.
Tactics is a soft Req.
Performing is a hard Req.
