The Bard

Jamming with the Combat Music

Quick demo of a Bard using “Song of Resurgence,” a channeled healing ability, during a boss battle.

From the Project: Gorgon dev blog:

“The bard’s music has required some extra technical care. If you ever played classic EverQuest, you may remember their bards as being silent — they strum their lutes but no sound comes out. Since EverQuest had combat music playing in the background all the time, a bard’s music would just be cacophonous.

But in Project: Gorgon, we only use combat music sparingly, mainly for bosses. So I asked Conor Brace, our amazing music guy, to make it possible for bardic songs to play alongside the combat music. He cooked up variants of each bard song to accompany the different combat-music tracks.”

Player-Controlled Tavern Music

Players who train in the Bard profession gain access to lutes, flutes, harps, drums and other instruments. When equipped, the player’s action bar is populated with music-related skills, each of which plays a few bars of music for that instrument.

Each of these phrases is carefully composed to work with all the others, and the game syncs these performances, so that multiple Bards wielding any combination of instruments can jam together — creating their own unique tavern music!

The video at right showcases just one of the two “Jam Session” / Tavern Music tracks currently in the game.
