As the name implies, this sword can only be equipped by a Bard. The weapon is decent (averaging 1.5 points more damage than the Halbard), but as the Bard is not able to score multiple hits like warriors or paladins, its special magic is far more important in the game: when a Bard is wielding a Bardsword, he is able to play an unlimited number of bard songs, so he does not have to go to the taverns to wet his throat with a drink. His throat never runs dry.
