Minstrels are highly advanced Bards with years of musical experience behind them.

NOTE: On iRO, the Minstrel is localized as Maestro due to having already localized Clowns as Minstrels.


Many tales about how Minstrels came about have surfaced over the years, but none have ever really been confirmed as the truth. The most popularly accepted story goes like this:

Once upon a time, a particular Bard composed many songs during his travels. His charming songs touched the hearts of almost everyone in the world and were widely known as the Minstrel Songs.

These Minstrel Songs also moved many other Bards and they grew popular amongst them. People called the Bards that sung his songs Minstrels. These Minstrels travelled the world and dedicated their voices to performing these Minstrel Songs. Their listeners loved their songs and were swayed by their mystique, especially since the original composer of the songs remains a mystery.

Someone calling himself "Minstrel Song" has recently appeared to teach his songs to Bards and Clowns. Perhaps there may be a little bit of credibility to this charming legend.[1]

  • A minstrel was a medieval European bard who performed songs whose lyrics told stories of distant places or of existing or imaginary historical events. Although minstrels created their own tales, often they would memorize and embellish the works of others.[2]
