Swords of Legends Online reveals the trailer for the Bard, an ‘elegant monk’

Gameforge and Wangyuan Shengtang have been cranking out hype for Swords of Legends Online all week, but this game has only been on the MMO radar about that long, so you’d be forgiven for feeling as if it’s come almost out of nowhere. So far, we’ve seen glimpses of the Reaper, Berserker, and Spellsword classes; today, we’re getting a look at the Bard. The studios describe the Bard as an “elegant monk,” with a focus on ranged DPS and support.

“Bards have a deep and profound understanding of music, knowing how to combine the magical notes of their instruments and unlock powerful spells by channeling the forces of nature. They use this magic to hit their foes from a distance or provide support and succor to their allies with powerful healing melodies. Their versatility makes Bards a welcome addition to any ranks. Whatever the situation, they always strike the right chord! Highly attuned to the sound of the elements, Bards can harmonically tune to the Dao of their allies to heal and strengthen them, or alternatively provoke imbalance in the forces of nature, resulting in powerful attacks which can unleash the full fury of the elements.”

As we’ve previously noted, the game is expected this summer on PC.

I like the look of this game and I did some reading up on it. It passes every point I look for in an MMO. Think I’ll come out of my MMO-break with this one.

I especially love that healers can also be DPS classes and my favorite way to play is healer with pets. I love that playstyle, which Summoner looks like it might fit that bill.

The bard looks fun to me and reminds me of the Songweaver in Aion, except with a full DPS spec and a full heal spec. I look forward to trying it out!

I wish we had a game to fill the hole that Wushu left: A sandbox MMO full of eastern lore, but without the P2W shenanigans.

This should fit both of those boxes. As far as I know it should be full of Eastern lore based on the style and look of the game and I know it’s not P2W. It’s a sub based P2P game in China and people have stated there’s no remotely P2W items there so we’ll get the same here, just without a sub (B2P). P2W usually comes from a developer, not a publisher, so it’s doubtful they’d magically change what is apparently a successful formula for them at home.

Is it a sandbox?
