Bards are the wandering entertainers of the realm, travelling from city
to city while playing songs of merriment and bringing information. In
that last respect, Bards are very important: few people travel far, and
for some places Bards are the only source of outside information. Thus,
they are often warmly greeted and usually stay free of charge at any
place they frequent. Bards are trained in exclusive colleges, where they
are taught a multitude of things, from swordplay, to stealth, to magic.
Bards practise a unique form of magic by using their considerable musical
talents to weave spells. These spells usually take the form of charming
magic. They can only use one-handed weapons, as they disdain heavy, slow
weapons, and will wear only leather armour.

Sneaking

Elf and Dark-elf are some of the best sneaking bards to go with followed closely by the Nekojin. Goblins work great for a lower cost, even balanced characters. The halfling will be able to dodge more but won't really pay off till the higher levels. When it comes to damage with the bards, the Dark-elf seems to deal out the most damage where the Elf ties for first after level 50+; Neko is a very close second. Any of the sneaking races would be great for a bard.

  • Races: Elf, Nekojin, Dark-elf, Halfling

Non-Sneaking

Much like the Mystics, the non-sneaking races don't suffer from the heavy exp table but also don't deal much in the way of backstabbing either until higher levels. The Dwarf is one of the best for the high strength and health as well as additional magic resistance and encumbrance not to mention the night vision. The Half-elf would also be a good choice with the additional mana and higher charm, agility, and intelligence. Gaunt might make an interesting bard based on the intelligence alone, potentially the best choice for a PVPing bard class.[1]

  • Races: Half-elf, Gnome, Dwarf
