EQ Bards is home to the amazingly versatile and exciting Everquest Bard class! This is a new community created with the mission to have a permanent class resource site so Bards and friends a like can learn everything they every wanted to know about the Bard class.

2020 Update – I don’t have as much time to maintain this site these days and i’m also not playing EQ as it’s just too much of a time sink with everything else I do IRL. If you are active and are interested in purchasing the domain, or helping maintain the site. Reach out to muse at eq bards dot com


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

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 🙂

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 🙂

  • /note & notes.txt file - 1 more question
    by KKimchee on April 14, 2021 at 10:20 am

    I've tried to find this out but still searching for the way to edit the note.txt file. How do you put a hard carriage return editing the file so it shows up in the game /note window? i.e. An edit on the file looking like this: Extraplanar BAGs Ethernere Essence x 3 Foraged: Tailored Haversack Pattern (*) Befouled Animal Pelt Befouled Silk (2) Calcified Filament (*) Ethernere Essence (3) Ends up like Extraplanar BAGs Ethernere Essence x 3 Foraged: Tailored Haversack Pattern (*) Befouled Animal Pelt Befouled Silk (2) Calcified Filament (*) Ethernere Essence (3) Oh, forlorn what to do? Also I'm guessing that you have to log off then edit/save then log on to see the new edited changes made to the notes.txt

  • Overseer - Retire Agent Reward Bug
    by Lessw on April 14, 2021 at 5:43 am

    If you Retire an agent, and have a full inventory (No Free slots in bags), you don't get any message about a full inventory, and the item reward just goes poof. It would be helpful to simply add a Message "Your inventory is Full, Please have a free bag slot to Retire this Agent." and then not retire the agent at this time. Thanks

  • Who asked for potranq port spells??
    by Xeris on April 14, 2021 at 5:33 am

    This addition makes no sense. Who asked for this to be done? The wild thing about this is that it shows that the devs VERY CLEARLY can add stuff to the game at lower levels. Why not add more fun 65 and lower content? Why not make any number of changes or additions people have pointed out that would make the game better or add more flair to older content? Instead... Wizards and druids can now port to tranq? It's 30 seconds away from POK, where they can both already port and punt people to..
