“Your eyes are like puddles of cool urine”: dwarves and swearing bards appeared in Baldur’s Gate 3

“Your eyes are like puddles of cool urine”: dwarves and swearing bards appeared in Baldur’s Gate 3

Larian Studios held a new edition of Panel From Hell, where they officially announced the eighth patch for Baldur’s Gate 3 . As expected, the main new feature is the bard class, which inspires allies with the power of music (and hurts opponents with insults).

The bard class branches into two subclasses: upon reaching the third level, players can choose whether the character studied at the College of Valor or at the College of Knowledge. The former fight with simple weapons, while the latter are capable spellcasters.

The bard of the College of Knowledge can unleash a wave of insults on the enemy. There are a total of 97 curse words in the game, here are a couple: โ€œ Your eyes are like puddles of cool urine โ€ and โ€œ Your idiot mother dressed you up like that? ยป

The developers also added five musical instruments: the hero can play the drum, flute, lute, lyre and violin, or just whistle. Tools are available not only to bards, but also to other classes. The funniest thing is that players can form a group and play together, and earn money by playing in front of NPCs.

 

Along with this patch added a playable race of dwarves. As a starting bonus, gnomes gain +1 Intelligence and advantage on saving throws based on Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma.

The authors also made turn-based battles faster, improved the character editor, reworked lighting and added new animations. In general, the patch turned out to be so voluminous that the entire list of changes took 19 pages. The update is already available in the game.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is currently in early access. A full release is scheduled for early 2023.
