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 🙂

  • CoTH and Rez Breaks Charm
    by Liren_Lockheart on June 24, 2019 at 6:48 pm

    Hey Daybreak, As a life long enchanter, I was pretty disappointed when I heard you were changing how CoTH and Rez affects charm. It's been a decades long practice for an enchanter in a group to invis their way through a labyrinth of mobs to find a great pet and have a mage in their group CoTH them back to safety. (Invis breaks charm so you can't get back out the way you came in.) This is also a helpful tactic when a pet or the enchanter dies and you need to fish up a new pet far from camp. Removing this option means you limit our pool of pets, limit our pool of camps to those near good pets, or force us to slog through alot of pointless trash to get where we are going. Breaking a charm when rezzed seems to be another way for you to stop enchanters from going fishing for pets and being pulled back across a zone but practically, it makes recovery after a death or wipe more difficult. If I die and need to fight back in to my corpse, I'm going to have a pet with me. It's standard to take a rez with a pet and not immediately be forced to wrangle the pet back into submission with rez effects and no mana. You've effectively made it so that we can't grab a pet before we get rezzed during a recovery without risking ourselves or our groups. I'm sure you had a good reason for implementing these changes. Stealing important quest mobs via charm and getting CoTHed back to your waiting group comes to mind. But please do reconsider. There are simpler ways to stop griefing then by eliminating this every day part of enchanter life. Flagging the quest mobs as uncharmable for example is a much narrower approach that doesn't eliminate 20 years of enchanter charming strats. I'd be happy to help you brainstorm ideas for the rest of the griefing complaints if I knew what they were. Thank you for all your hard work, Melusine the Enchanter […]

  • shield of the dark dot dmg is pretty sad
    by tofu stir fry on June 24, 2019 at 6:25 pm

    so finally got the shield quest done for my shaman on mangler. Statwise its still amazing. but tested the dot out and was immediately disapointed. 110 initially than multiples of two per tic for 2 mins? (1, 3, 5, 7, 9, etc etc etc) thats pretty sad in comparison to the clicky on the FV quested shield. was this intended? or was it "fixed" recently? […]
