Erm, not everyone plays 5e?Bard is hands down one of the most powerful 5e classes. I have no idea why they'd need saving or uplifting. They kick butt in this edition. What is the issue?
Agreed. Bards should be separate and distinct from all the other classes, because they fill a niche: the social guy. Wizards: magic. Rogues: thievin'. Warriors: killin'. Who does the talkin'? The priest? No, she's the healer. The bard is the schmoozer.Meanwhile, the Bard should absolutely be it’s own class, and be magical.
Thanks, @LuisCarlos17f , but I can't tell if Lindsey is helping or hurting bards. I mean, being a necromancer-bard is pretty cool . . . unless they do choreography.
