Bards, tune those lutes and warm up those pipes: The latest update to Dungeons and Dragons Online is live today, and it brings with it a slew of improvements to the Bard class as well as a new questline and a handful of improvements to the game’s loot and spellcasting systems. With this update, Bards will now have an easier time than ever buffing their allies with their magical melodies, as all Bard songs are now consolidated into the Bardic Inspiration feat, meaning that Bards will no longer have to spend precious time applying every song’s effect individually.
And all players regardless of class can now delve into a brand-new adventure, The Khorvaire Shipment, in which players are tasked with aiding a Warforged salvage company in the recovery of some precious cargo from a ship that capsized off the coast of Stormreach. Of course, it’s unlikely that they’re the only people looking to claim the sunken treasure for themselves, so players should be prepared to fend off competitors if they want to escape with the cargo (and their lives) intact.
For all the details on the myriad improvements and additions included in the update, you can check out the complete patch notes over on the game’s official site.
