Bards often serve as negotiators, messengers, scouts, and spies. They love to accompany heroes (and villains) to witness heroic (or villainous) deeds firsthand, since a bard who can tell a story from personal experience earns renown among his fellows. A bard casts arcane spells without any advance preparation, much like a sorcerer. Bards also share some specialized skills with rogues, and their knowledge of item lore is nearly unmatched. A high Charisma score allows a bard to cast high-level spells.
A bard is a class that takes practice to master. Because each bard is diffrent depending on player styles and server rulings. A bard contains skills as a warrior, scout, healer, and buffer all in one package. On Amia bards are useful to almost every party and roleplay. In battle a bard can first buff(enhancement magic) a friend and himself then sneak up or rush in while making use of his Bard Song ability. The song improves with levels and ranks on performance and better songs may be found thoughout the realm. A good bard should always have a mix of great fire power and tanking in his party.
Multiclassing: Due to the bard having a little mix of everything it is possible to use a few levels of this class to fine tune another. Remember that both bards and sorcerers also gain access to the Red Dragon Disciple class.
