The Tune Up! update brings the new Bard class.

Bards embellish with relish, singing their song to assist their allies' abilities and enfeeble their enemies. Unleash a mighty kabong with your lute fist or cultivate a crowd with your cadence - playing to perfection powers your percussion.

These values have been set from PTS original update, and may need to be adjusted to match the current state of PTS or Live release.

Obtaining

Crafting on the Chaos Core Crafter (Advanced Classes)

Bardium (Crafting Material)

A pulsing gold and blue ore that when touched fills ones head with musical inspiration.

This ore is found rarely in lower tiers of Geode Caves.


Abilities

Melody (Passive)

Melody is used for bards abilities and is generated from the Bardsong buff. Gaining melody rotates through the bardsongs abilities. Having high melody will also increase the bards basic attack.

Nimble Dance (M2)

A parry attack dealing damage in a cone and grants the user an invulnerability bubble for a short time. Nimble Dance removes one Melody. If used correctly during Bardsong buff it will add one Melody.

Singing Crystal (1)

Throw out a singing crystal onto the ground. Whenever a song is used to buff nearby players, the area of effect is around both the bard and crystal. After using the ability Singing Crystal swaps into Crystal Pop.

Crystal Pop (1)

Detonate the Singing Crystal with an overloaded amount of musical energy causing it to deal damage to nearby enemies.

Epic Riff (2)

Starts the Bardsong buff and adds one to Melody. Bardsong periodically spawns icons above the bards head. If the player uses the ability that matches the icon while it is active, they will gain Melody. All Melody is lost when Bardsong buff ends.

The bard class is a bland name for a class, maybe change it to something more consistent and wacky feel to it like Vagabond Bard or something rhymes and matches its origin biome.
