Neverwinter – Bard’s Keybinding Guide

This guide goes over the Songs for the bard, as well as how to keybind each song. I googled around for a few hours in order to adequately write this up for those who wish they didn’t have to “guitar hero” the class.

General Introduction

To the Reader of this Guide:

I’m not a great guide writer nor do I claim to be a great player. Bard looked like such a blast to play, so I went and made one. Sure enough the dps is great, heals is nice… Only thing I didn’t like… having to go into performance and ACCURATELY press the corresponding numbers for a specific song… So… I did what I like to think most would do, and I googled ways to play the bard efficiently. This guide will go over each Song available to the bard, and there will even be a section on “How To Create Key Binds” There is absolutely no easy way to make a keybind in the options that allow you to activate all your songs with a press of the button except by quick slotting them. The way I am showing you will make it so you don’t even have to use quickslots. Let’s begin then.

Songs of the Bard

There are a total of 12 songs for the Bard. If I am correct, you can have 4 songs pinned and 1 quickslot for Songblade paragon (dps) and 2 quickslots for Minstrel paragon (healer) This guide will go over each song and the code to enter in order to keybind it.

Hotkey Coding

Urgent: Read This First

When keybinding, making sure you do not use a key that you use for anything else. Doing so will erase the slotted key for your other action.

How To:

In each song section on the bottom will be a CODE bracket followed by a strange looking string. It will start with “/bind (key)”. You copy that code using CTRL+C and open your game window. You paste that code by using CTRL+V and press the Home button. Then before you hit Enter to send the chat, where (key) is you replace with the key.

For example:

/bind F12 “invocation” –causes the F12 key to invoke instead of the Ctrl+I.

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.


  1. These keybinds do not work atm, and the reason is, your ” are in the wrong format for Neverwinter! So guys, if your trying to use these copy and paste them to a note pad and replace the ” symbols.

    I’m pretty sure I was the original creator of these keybinds…
