Okay so I caved and am playing on Agnarr. (thanks Doctor) 🙂

Update: 6/2/2017:
Hey Bards. I am guessing many are back for Everquest’s latest progression server Agnarr. Unfortunately, RL doesn’t allow me to play EQ much these days.  However, I plan to keep the site live and am updating the software etc. on a regular basis. If there are updates needed for Bard Instruments, Songs, or anything else, I encourage you to contact me and help contribute to the site.  You can reach out to me via the contact form or on Facebook at

Cheers and happy Barding 🙂

Update: 6/13/2016:

I had originally hoped that the creation of this site would help bring the Bard community back together, help new Bards find needed information and perhaps seasoned Bards to share their experiences. It did not attract the following or contributors as I had hoped. I will continue to keep the site up as a static resource, but am too busy IRL to continue to add content at this time. If you have anything you want to have added, please reach out via the contact form on this site.  Thanks and Happy Barding 🙂

  • A modest request: reduce traveler spam
    by Traxen on August 24, 2019 at 11:15 pm

    With the TBL chase loot a lot of people are running all over every zone in the game, which has led to an irritating amount of screen-filling Traveler spam. I don't mind the continent/expansion traveler, like Antonica or Velious, etc., but any chance we can cut down on seeing every guildie zone into every individual zones? Not a biggie, not a hill I'd die on, just a little annoyance.

  • [Phinigel] Gnome Memorial Mountain Loot
    by Jaera on August 24, 2019 at 4:46 pm

    Now that Phinigel has arrived at Veil of Alaris, a couple of people have taken stabs at the downscaled level 95 heroic adventures in GMM and they're not too bad. The only real problem I have with it is the loot is all 110 required. Even the fairly nice chunk of XP we get is offset by the fact that the trash mobs have twice the health of VoA trash, even if they don't hit much harder. Any chance of getting either era-appropriate random drops ala COTF HAs or having these items required level lowered to 95 with recommended at 110?

  • Continuous Crashing
    by Raiena on August 24, 2019 at 4:28 pm

    I hoping I can get some help. I have been having crashing issues like crazy lately. The crash occurs when I try to enter world from Character Select. Yesterday I uninstalled EQ including all UI files and so forth so it was a fresh installation; all files newly generated. I was able to log in just fine yesterday. Today, I'm back to the same issues. Crash after crash when trying to enter world from Character Select. This is happening for all accounts. I'm at a loss on what to do. Any help/suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks.
