Bard

From Thorium Mod Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Bard is a class added by the Thorium Mod as of version 1.4.0.0. The Bard class' weapons, armor, and accessories focus on providing short, stat-improving 'empowerments' while still dealing symphonic damage.

Although the Bard buffs themselves when fighting, a larger benefit can be found through teamwork; empowerments are also given to friendly players standing near the Bard, and is a great addition to a multiplayer scenario.

The Bard class is largely developed, with content spread throughout the game. This includes 8 armor sets, 30 accessories, 28 buffs and 66 items.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Inspiration[edit | edit source]

Instead of using Mana, the Bard weapons draw from a unique resource called inspiration, which is increased using Inspiration Fragments, Revelation Shards and Epiphany Crystals. Inspiration regenerates automatically. Although many of the Bard items are specific to inspiration, the fact that it's separate from Mana makes it a tempting choice for another class' backup.

Symphonic Damage[edit | edit source]

The Bard's musical weapons hit with a specific damage type called symphonic damage. Accessories and armor can be used to augment symphonic damage output, and generic 'damage' buffs, such as the one from the Ebon Wood Tambourine, still increase a Bard's damage.

Music Sheets[edit | edit source]

In addition to firing projectiles or swinging objects to deal damage, the Bard may also summon grounded instruments using Music Sheets. As long as the Bard stands near this instrument, they and their teammates receive a buff (depending on which instrument is used), along with another bonus. For example, Music Sheet: Piano summons a piano which increases inspiration regeneration and gives everyone Movement Speed II.
