Neverwinter Jewel of the North brings new Bard class

Neverwinter Jewel of the North Bard class

Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios have announced the next Neverwinter module Jewel of the North. Launching on PC July 27 and on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Fall 2021, this expansion brings many improvements, but the highlight is the introduction of the new Bard class.

Neverwinter: Jewel of the North will introduce the new stylish Bard class, based on the popular Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition class. Players who choose the Bard class become daring heroes who possess the ability to weave magic into their swords, use music to inspire allies, manipulate minds, and even heal wounds. With the ability to select one of two unique Paragon Paths — the swashbuckling, close-ranged damage dealing Songblade path, or the master musician, ranged-casting Minstrel — players will find that the new class offers an arsenal of unique abilities that are based on the power of music.

“With Jewel of the North, we wanted to make it easier than ever for players to create a character and set out on adventures throughout the Forgotten Realms”, said Matt Powers, Executive Producer for Neverwinter. “The leveling experience has been streamlined, now better aligning with the Dungeons & Dragons tabletop experience, and we’re extremely excited to bring the highly-expressive Bard class to Neverwinter.”

Along with the Bard class comes a streamlined leveling system and a level cap that is raised from level 80 to level 20. This allows new and returning players to reach epic level content fast, in approximately 12 hours.

This module also brings additional quality-of-life changes, such as early game performance improvements, a revamp of in-game tutorials and a new Adventures system.
