Magic Items for BardsD&D Insider Article
Bazaar of the Bizarre
By Rodney Thompson

Bards, like some other classes, need to split their treasure allotment between weapons and implements. Some, such as the songblades and songbows, present an option to combine the two into one. This article presents a number of new magic items that bards might find useful, including new songblades, songbows, and some wondrous items that can be used as bard implements as well.

The beautiful lyre of supplication is said to produce music so appealing that it could bend the wills of the gods. Bards can use this item as an implement for bard powers, bard paragon path powers, and this item’s power. As an implement, it grants a +6 enhancement bonus to attack rolls and damage rolls, and it deals 6d6 extra damage on a critical hit.
