New Bard Class Announced For World of Warcraft

Combining the best of Guitar Hero and World of Warcraft, a new class has been announced for WoW: The Bard. Here's an excerpt:

Armed with a trusty axe, killer riffs, and a ton of attitude, the guitar-wielding bard is the second hero class to be introduced in the upcoming Wrath of the Lich King expansion for World of Warcraft. The bard excels both as a solo performer and as part of a solid group lineup, able to front in a number of roles as varied as his musical repertoire. The bard’s extensive Metal skill line grants the potent transformational ability "I Am Murloc," as well as direct damage effects like "Epic Solo" that will rock foes into oblivion while powerful Indie debuffs such as "Tape Jam" and "Shoegazer" keep them in check. If things heat up, the bard’s Punk tree can support the party with a wide range of abilities, such as "Nonconformity," which dispels fear, mind control, and similar effects, or "Mosh Pit," which briefly boosts the group’s movement speed while its members stay within range.

You can get more information about the new Bard class here.

The Molten Core was definitively hilarious, especially when I checked the concept arts and the screenshots.

the bard is still on wow website, which means it may not be a joke, i really hope it is, as it will really ruin the game if players start fighting with guitars. the games already cartoony but that takes the piss
