    With the recent news on the near certainty of the bard class, I'd love to see pantheon's take on the bard class icon, and even add a Bard t-shirt and sticker to the redbubble store. 

    I think a white lute would fit in well with the artistic design of the other class icons, but lute/strings are also a little overdone for the bard class.  What are your thoughts on a great class icon to represent the bard class in Pantheon?  I've linked EQ and Vanguard's below for comparison.

    I think it should be a hurdy-gurdy.

    As much as I love the hurdy-gurdy, I would refer the t-shirt gods back to Amsai's thread from 2016 which discussed bard instruments where

    Sicario suggested THIS musical masterpiece

    Put THAT on the bard tee-shirt and I will buy a few dozen ;)

    Being VERY old school...

    Only change I'd make is to have that base be a stylized skull :)
