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 🙂

    Has anyone seen this new CoV aug drop off Ol` Grinnin` Finley (shark namer) in Cobalt Scar? We've killed him maybe 15 times and have never seen the aug drop and are starting to wonder if something is wrong?

  • everquest reset device failed.....
    by Gutt on January 28, 2021 at 12:55 am

    Hey folks! I have read about a bazillion how to fix "reset device failed" threads etc with no successful change. I recently, within the last week just finished my new computer. My older computer had no issues running EQ at all, windowed or fullscreen I have had no issues with it. With my new rig I have had nothing but issues. All my drivers, bios, windows 10 etc are all up to date. I downloaded DX9 as suggested by a dev on another forums to a similar post and played with the eqclient.ini with no luck. I am playing at 3440x1440 with a RTX 3080 on an ultrawide. The only thing that has really change from previous computer is the AMD Processor and the new video card. My game will NOT let me window it and then maximize it again without the reset device failed window popping up. It took a bit of messing around with settings etc to get it to even load up without black screening me then completely closing. what is going on?! plz help

  • Linking an old acct keycode to my new account
    by Riecheck on January 28, 2021 at 12:52 am

    Hello! I have an old product "Everquest Gold Edition" which includes the first four expansions up to Planes of Power. I have the CD multi-fold case with the account keycode and 'SONYON' number on a white sticker on the front. My goal is to provide proof of purchase from 2002 to update my new account with the original purchase date and ultimately claim the in-game rewards associated. Let me know if anyone knows what I can do to proceed or what other information I need to provide.
