Am not a bard, but a Ranger... but think me found at least part of the bard quest, maybe... Not far from the Wiz spires in dreadlands is a bard guy, who wants two 'songs' from a guy named Maestro, and a lute from a gnome in Ak'Anon (sorry, forgot the name). Anyway, he's pretty easy to find with tracking. Hope this helps

The bard one IS a sword, 1H slash and the particle effect is blue notes, dancing around the blade

Info for a druid or two....


"Well, the NPC near the wall in Misty is the second person in a "Race" quest that starts at T1 in WK, I did the quest which involves carrying torches across a couple of zones. I ended up with...

DRUM ROLL PLEASE....

A proof of speed ring ALL/ALL no stats at all : (

"

"Canis, take the ring back to the beginning, Fleetfoot wants it. You get half of Maestro's Symphony page 24. Bard quest.

I am camping the Bard in Southern Karanas on Rallos-Zek and there is a new bard near there... he is red even to a level 50, and talks about being very busy, he has work to do... I'm sure he has something to do w/ the new Bard Weapon

Good luck singers!

Below is a description of what I have found of the Bard Epic Weapon (Fiery Avenger style) quest.

It begins in the Dreadlands near the Wizard Teleporter.

In the Beginning:
Baldric Slezaf is the start of this quest he wishes the two missing pages from his symphony and an instrument to play it on. One page is in two parts is says. From this point on I will have sections for each piece. He says that Forpar Fizfla has the instrument but will not speak to him.

Part 1: Top of Page 24

Konia Swiftfoot, a bard in West Karana that is in the first guard tower from Qeynos Hills zone will send you on a quest taking a torch to each person. From West Karana you go to Misty Thicket. In Misty Thicket the guy you are looking for is on the 'low level' side of the wall right at the main opening in it. From there you go to South Ro, the bard there is at the zone to Innothule Swamp. From there you take your torch (which you have turned in twice so far) to the next NPC who is in Lake Rathe at the Arena zone. When you turn in your torch this time you get a 'Proof of Speed' ring. Sadly you can't wear it but it looks cool. You now take this back to the first NPC in West Karana at the guard tower. Turn that in and she till give you the top of page 24. She has the bottom but will not give it to you because it is so valuable. She says it is likely as valuable as one of Mahlin's instruments.

Part 2: The Instrument of Choice
The gnome you seek out stays unwilling to talk to you and even other gnomes. To get him to talk you have to help his friend, a female bard who is at the docks in butcherblock. She lost her horn to a cyclops in the Ocean of Tears. The cyclops who has it is Queg Maelstrome... if you kill him you get the 'Alluring Horn' and once you give it to the lady bard she will give you a note which once you give to the gnome will lead you on to the next big part of the quest.

The gnome is willing to make you an instrument but he only tells of how to make the neck and head of the instrument. The items needed for this are as follows:

Amalgym Tendril (Plane of Fear)
Phingel's Spine (Kedge Keep off Phingel Autropos)
'petrified skull of a lycanthrope' I believe this is gotten in kunark somewhere off a 'lycanthrope' and not a were wolf but I could be wrong.

Part 3: Uncertain
There is a bard in South Karana (Kelkim Menkia), she is between the centaurs and treants along the zone line that is a 'drop-off'. She needs strings for her lute. I am not sure what she gives you in the end. It could be page 25 of the quest. It could be Mahlin's instrument to get bottom of 24. Or it could be strings for the lute you need. The items she needs to make the strings for her lute are as follows.

Guts of a Chromodrac (Gotten off a named Chromodrac in Skyfire Mountains. Eldric the Old or something like that) A few notes on the guy... he is like a Chromodrac but tougher, higher than level 50 AND he summons.

Guts of a Red Wurn (Gotten off Nezekezena om Burning Woods)

Guts of a 'huge' Onyx Drake (Gotten off Shardwing, a named Drake in Lake Rathe) Around level 40 but he hits pretty hard for his con. Not too much of a problem.

Miscelaneous Notes:
There is another bard in South Karana named Baenar Swiftsong. A druid, ranger, and I killed him. The rumor of him not being killable was false. However when he got to low life he did pop back to his spawn point (but at the same life we had him at). Even though he was holding a lute in his hand he did not have any item on him. He was difficult to kill because he would hit in the area of 200dmg or so (He hit the ranger for that much in fact quite often).

P.S. Please post this where you will but give me credit for it if you do.

I believe this is the picture that they were talking about. This is believed to be the Bardic equivilant of the Fiery Avenger.

Tonight in Hate, there were a few changes. Every time we killed a Skorn Banshee, another mob called a Thought Corrupter (?) would spawn. It was level 55 and dropped a quest piece, I believe it was an ebon breastplate, but I'm not positive as I didn't get to loot one. 3 of these dropped in the coarse of the night. It also drops the shadow gem of corruption.

I mention this here, for those of you who do not know, because the Skorn Banshee is the mob that drops the Bard planes armor and weapons.

the "Petrified skull of a Lycanthrope" you mentioned drops off the drolvarg warlord in karnors castle. I didnt have any clue what it did till now, so if you want this item I suggest you sit your ass in the hand room for a while and tell your monk to pull the warlord =)

here is a rehash of all i ahve found so far

A) BArd Npc In Dl starts it Needs 3 items
1) page 24
2) page 25
3) instrument made by Forper Fizfla

b) To get top part page 24 go to Wk
1)Konia Swiftfoot starts the race gives u torch
2) take to Fajio Knejo in misty
3) take that torch to Andad Filla in Sro
4) take that torch to Misty Tekchita in lake rath
5) Take the ring u get fom there back to Konia Swiftfoot For Top part

c) To get page 25 go to sk whre u will find anther bard npc woodelf she wants 3 items
1) Guts of a named chromatic drake in skyfire
2) guts from teh new named wrum in BW
3) guts form the Huge Oynx Drake in Rath mtns (this one is theory so far)

d) Now u need forpar's instrument.
1) first u need to get horn from oot
2) take teh horn from oot to a npc bard in bb
3) take the note she gives u to forpar give he wil speak gives u a note and alist
4) now go get Phnaigl's Spine from kk
5) Ama Tendril from pof
6) Petterfied skull from Kannor soposly on dog warlord
7) take all 3 items and the note back give to Forper he gives u back the item the npc in dl wants

So the only unsolves part is teh botom half of page 24, there are a few theroies one is the 7 string lute witch is a posibilty since the fa quest dose make u turn in sf and gouldbane. The other is and im tsil trying to get them to talk but in quyen one of the bard npc talks about jeserans who is a master instrument maker who learnd from his father who is way better. That thoo coudl be a dead in.

Tell your monk to pull the Warlord? My good man, a bard is perfectly capable of breaking that room. I've been pulling it since level 57.

Just an FYI, Forpar(sp) is actually found in the Steamfont Mountains in the center windmill on the left side. He responds to your question about a 'mystical instrument' with the list of items he wants before he will make it.
Don't think you can skip the cyclops in OOT though because when you turn the note in to the little gnome he hands you a Note from Forpar to Himself that he wants returned as well.

Also of note is that there are werewolf hunters in NK (they run around the north part of the zone and stop not far from the northwest corner) that have been there a long time...perhaps now they have information leading to the skull. If it's the one that drops off the drolvarg warlord at least you'll get a bit of backstory I suppose.

Speculation: Since you already have to go to Kunark to pick up some of the items, it's altogether possible the instrument you need is the Nostrolo Tambourine obtained from the FV quest that requires you to gather several Ancient Coins all over the continent.

Anyhow hope this helps somehow even though I'm a ranger

I would edit my last post if I could with this info.
The woman on the docks in Butcherblock is actually on the house on the center pier that doesn't lead to any ships, half elven if I recall. I don't think she responded to hails but did accept an alluring horn and gave you a note to deliver to Forpar.

PS: by "instrument you need" in the above post I was referring to the instrument of value you might need to turn in to the bard in WK guard house 1 to get the lower half of page 24.

Ok... This probly has nothing to do with the bard quest, but it may, so here goes... I kill the dwarves at the docks in BB. I was there right after the patch and someone shouted "Anyone see any new NPCs about?" I hadn't really thought to check, so I hit Track. Sure ehough, there was a new name on my list. Vedico Windwisper was her name. I Tracked her and found her in the new house on the MIDDLE dock in BB. She IS a bard, almost sure of that, blue to a 46, but didn't attack me, and bards HATE me. (Ok, maybe I killed the bard in SK one too many times) She was indiff. Here's an excerpt from my EQLog... (BTW, I recomend you all turn you'r logs on when talkign to the new quest NPCs, makes relating what to do much easier...
[Tue Sep 19 22:28:49 2000] You say, 'hail Vedico Windwisper'
[Tue Sep 19 22:28:49 2000] Vedico Windwisper says 'Hello Akom . Have you seen the port master? I am here to complain about the shoddy service.
[Tue Sep 19 22:28:56 2000] You say, 'What shoddy service?'
[Tue Sep 19 22:28:56 2000] Vedico Windwisper says 'I was sailing from Freeport on one of the boats when a giant cyclops attacked the boat! No one lifted a finger as he stole the horn I was playing and ran off. Someone here has to answer for the loss of my horn.
[Tue Sep 19 22:29:26 2000] You say, 'what about cyclops'
[Tue Sep 19 22:29:26 2000] Vedico Windwisper says 'He was a huge cyclops! He came rushing up out of the water and stared at me with his big eye and said, 'Me like horn me take and play pretty music!' before he snatched my horn and disappeared back under the waves.


Yes... I have tried other things... I think this is all you can get out of here. BUT, there was another druid there who said that she had a friend who had just killed Quag (cyclops) in OOT and he droped a horn, which is new. She sent him a message where to turn in the horn, but he wasn't going to be able to make it on that night. I havn't gone to OOT to get the horn myself yet, I've been trying to level. I do not know the reward for returning the horn to here either. Quag is a level 45 clops in OOT that debuffs and mana saps. Need a group to kill him. Please post if you find out more.

i wish when big stuff attacked me it'd just steal something and run off...
ok ok i know that wasnt bard FA quest related so here ya go: theres some half-elf chick named Misty (i forget last name) right outside the arena in lake rathe that apparently cons red to a 50 and just "smiles and taps her foot" if you "hail" her. while i was killin birdies there some high lvl bards kept giving her something and i would just see the msg "Misty (whatever) hands you a ring" or something to that effect. oh well hope that helps someone.

Ah hah again... I was in BB again today and someone shouted for the loc of the new bard... I told him where to find her and he gave her the horn mentioned in my above post. She thanked him and gave him something to give to someone in Steamfont. I hope this helps.
