NOTE: A patch on April 22, 2015, added a work-around to obtain bottleneck items from Phinigel Autropos (Kedge Keep), Gorenaire (Dreadlands), and Talendor (Skyfire Mountains).

- In Kedge Keep, a harbinger of the seas can help adventurers get their epic 1.0 pieces that would normally drop from Phinigel Autropos.
- In Dreadlands, a harbinger of frost can help adventurers get their epic 1.0 pieces that would normally drop from Gorenaire.
- In Skyfire Mountains, a harbinger of flame can help adventurers get their epic 1.0 pieces that would normally drop from Talendor.


NOTE: A Patch on June 22, 2016, removed the Undead Bard from TLP Servers only and put the Undead Dragongut Strings back on Trakanon himself.

Full Walkthrough
  • Visit Baldric Slezaf, located inside a pyramid at +775, +9665, around the portal area of the Dreadlands.

    You say, 'Hail, Baldric Slezaf'

    Baldric Slezaf says 'Hello. Don't you think this would be a wonderful place to perform a symphony?'

    You say, 'What symphony?'

    Baldric Slezaf says 'It has been my dream for years to perform a symphony that would be remembered for ages to come. I have run into a few minor snags, however.'

    You say, 'What snags?'

    Baldric Slezaf says 'Several years ago I bought sheets of the most beautiful sounding music from a traveling merchant. He did not know the author of the work as it was simply signed 'the Maestro'. The melody I played from them was wondrous and invoked feelings in me I have never felt before. However, as I reached the middle of the music, I discovered it was missing two pages!'

    You say, 'What pages?'

    Baldric Slezaf says 'The pages that were missing were pages 24 and 25. I have been searching the world for a spot to hold my symphony and I have finally found it. Without the music and a new lute crafted by the famous instrument maker Forpar Fizfla, I do not think I can pull it off.'

    You say, 'Who is Forpar Fizfla?'

    Baldric Slezaf says 'Forpar Fizfla is an eccentric instrument maker from Ak'Anon. He makes enchanted instruments that enhance the sound of the music. If I am to perform the concert of all concerts, I must have one of his instruments. I went to Ak'Anon, seeking to purchase an instrument from him but he wouldn't even speak to me.'

    You say, 'What music?'

    Baldric Slezaf says 'It makes me sad to know that the pages of this music may be spread across the world or destroyed. If you find and bring me the two missing sheets as well as a new lute, I would be happy to repay you in some way.'

    You say, 'How will you repay me?'

    Baldric Slezaf pulls a fantastic looking sword from its scabbard and says, 'I might be willing to part with this wonderful sword if I were able to perform this symphony. You would also gain recognition at the opening of the symphony.' Baldric sheathes his sword and begins to hum a haunting melody.

  • Baldric Slezaf wants these four items:

    1) First Half of Page 24
    2) Second Half of Page 24
    3) Page 25
    4) Lute made by Forpar Fizfla

  • To get top part page 24 go to West Karana and see Konia Swiftfoot, who may be found inside a guard tower at -500, -2400. She gives you a Torch of Misty and starts a race. Take the torch to Fajio Knejo in Misty Thicket (close to the wall guards). He gives you a Torch of Ro. Then take that torch to Andad Filla in South Ro (close to innothule zone) who gives you a Torch of Rathe. Then take that torch to Misty Tekchita in Lake Rathe (by arena zone). This will get you Proof of Speed. Finally, take this back to Konia Swiftfoot and you will get the top part of page 24.


  • You say, 'Hail, Konia Swiftfoot'

    Konia Swiftfoot says 'Hello there, ______. I am hosting a relay running contest. Would you like to participate?'

    You say, 'I would like to participate.'

    Konia Swiftfoot says 'Great! The prize will be this silly old music sheet. Let me know when you are ready and I will pass you the torch and tell you where the first stop is.'

    You say, 'I am ready.'

    Konia Swiftfoot says 'Here you go. Run with this torch as fast as you can to the misty thicket and hand this torch off to Fajio Knejo. He will tell you where to go from there. Hurry! You do not have much time!'

    You have entered The Misty Thicket.

    You say, 'Hail, Fajio Knejo'

    Fajio Knejo says 'Greetings, ______. I hope you are having a fine day.'

    Fajio Knejo says 'Run onward, my friend, to the far off Desert of Ro and give this torch to Andad Filla.'

    You gain experience!!
    You gain experience!!

    You have entered South Desert of Ro.

    You say, 'Hail, Andad Filla'

    Andad Filla says 'Hello, traveler, please do not bother me right now. I am waiting for someone.'
    Andad Filla says 'You still have a way to go! Seek out Misty Tekcihta near the arena at Lake Rathe. Run like the wind!'

    You gain experience!!
    You gain experience!!

    You have entered Lake Rathetear.

    You say, 'Hail, Misty Tekcihta'
    Misty Tekcihta smiles and taps her foot.
    Misty Tekcihta hands you a small ring.

    You gain experience!!

    Konia Swiftfoot says 'Excellent! You are quite a runner. Here is half of the sheet music. I decided to keep the other half because it has this wonderful signature. I think it might be quite valuable. It is probably worth as much as an instrument the great Mahlin used.'

    You gain experience!!

  • To get the bottom half, you need to give Konia Swiftfoot Mahlin's Mystical Bongos. Talk to Baenar Swiftsong at location -15, +100 in South Karana. He will give you an invoice after you ask "what doll?". Go to Solusek A and give the gnome vendor Marfen the invoice and you will receive a doll. Take the doll to the Estate of Unrest and find Serra (next to the gnomish spelunker):

    You say, 'Hail, Serra'

    Serra says 'H..h..hello? Can you help me? I lost [something] and I need it so I can go back home.'

    You say, 'Something?'

    Serra says 'I never got my doll for my birthday. Before he could bring it to me I was h..hurt by the bad man. I cannot leave without my doll. Will you please help me?'

    You say, 'What doll?'

    Serra claps her hands. 'Oh goody! But... I cannot seem to remember his name. He gave me this note before I...'

    You say, 'What note?'

    Serra says 'I hope it will help you out. Please find him so I can leave this place?'

  • You receive a Ripped Qeynos Bards Guild Flyer.

  • Give her the Mechanical Doll:

    Serra says 'Oh! You have the dolly! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I can go home now. Please give this to my father, Baenar. He will understand when he gets it.' Serra begins to fade away. 'Bye bye!''

  • You receive a Note for Baenar.

  • Take the note to Braenar, who will give a new note for Maligar. Take the note from Braenar to Maligar, who is in West Karana at loc 1200, -10900. Maligar's Enraged Doppleganger will attack at this point (bring a group). Kill the Doppleganger and loot his head. Take the head back to Braenar and receive "Mahlin's Mystical Bongos". Take the bongos to Konia Swiftfoot in West Karana to get the bottom of Page 24.


  • To get Page 25 go to South Karana and talk to the wood elf bard named Kelkin Mekia.

    You say, 'Hail, Kelkim Menkia'

    Kelkim Menkia sighs as she looks over her lute. 'My lute was mangled by those damnable gnolls! I have no idea how I'm going to get a new set of strings for it. They were so rare.'

    You say, 'Why are they so rare?'

    Kelkim Menkia says 'I only use the finest lute strings on my lute. My uncle got them for me from across the world. His name was Zendrik the Wurmslayer. As his name implies, he killed many wurms and drakes. The strings for my lute were all made from the guts of the wurms and drakes he slew.

    You say, 'What wurms and drakes?'

    Kelkim Menkia says 'The strings were from a chromodrac, a red wurm and a huge onyx drake. It always sounded so wonderful.' Kelkim sighs, looking off to the horizon. As she shakes her lute angrily, she says, 'I'll kill all of you dirty gnolls!'

  • Find these three items and give them to her to receive Page 25:

    Chromodrac Gut
  • (dropped by Eldrig the Old, a named chromodrac in Skyfire)
    Red Wurm Gut
  • (dropped by Nezekezena, a named wurm in the Burning Woods)
    Onyx Drake Gut
  • (dropped by Blackwing, an onyx drake in Rathe Mountains)

    Kelkim Menkia snatches the gut strings from your hand and immediately begins to string her lute. 'This is wonderful, I will be able to play my lute again soon! Take this old sheet of music I found - I don't think I will have much use for it. My new desire is to bash gnoll heads in with my lute. Safe travels to you, Kenayne.'

    You gain experience!!

  • Now you need Forpar's Lute. This is rewarded as head, body and strings.

  • First you need to get horn from Ocean of Tears (Alluring Horn from Quag Maelstrom). Take the alluring horn from Ocean of Tears to a half elf bard in Butcherblock, by the docks (Vedico). Take the note she gives you to Forpar. He then gives you a note and a list of items he needs:

    1) Backbone of an Ancient Fishman - Kedge Backbone from Phinigel Autropos in Kedge Keep.
    2) Amalgam Tentacle - Amygdalan Tendril from Plane of Fear.
    3) Petrified Skull of a Lycanthrope - Petrified Werewolf Skull from Karnor's Castle off a Drolvarg Warlord.


    Take all 3 items and the note back give to Forpar.

    Forpar Fizfla says 'Wow! I didn't think a Human like you would be able to gather all of those things.' Forpar rambles around and works with small tools for a good ten minutes before handing you a very fine looking lute head. 'Now, do you want to gather the next pieces for me?'

  • He gives you the Mystical Lute Head.

    You say, 'What next pieces?'

    Forpar Fizfla says 'The next pieces are a little harder to come by than those. To make the body of an instrument that will last ages to come, I need something very special. The scales of a big red dragon and the scales of a big white dragon will make it unbreakable, as well as giving it a unique look. Some metal bits will allow me to hold the body together. Please, if you gather up these things, bring them to me as soon as possible. I have not felt this good in years!'

  • The body requires the following items:

    1) Red Dragon Scales from Talendor, Lord Nagafen, or Echo of Nortlav.
    2) White Dragon Scales from Gorenaire or Lady Vox.
    3) Metal Bits (regular smithed metal bits). (There's been some confusion because the name of the item is plural, but you really only need one copy of this. Verified in-game.)


    Forpar Fizfla says 'Woooooo! You are doing a wonderful job, ______. I wish I could go out and gather these things myself.' Forpar sits back down at his desk and pulls several very strange looking tools out. Eventually he looks up at you and says, 'The body is done! Only one more piece to go!'

    You say, 'One more piece to go?'

    Forpar Fizfla says 'The lute has a head and body. The only thing missing is a set of strings that will never break! I have heard rumors of a living dead poison dragon in the lands of Kunark. If your were somehow able to get your hands on his guts, I could finish the lute. You would have to bring me the head, the body and the undead dragon gut for lute strings!'

  • Find and bring a raidforce to Trakanon's lair in Old Sebilis at -2085, -705.

  • Kill Trakanon and loot the Undead Dragongut Strings from him. On Live servers, spawn the triggered version of Trakanon by giving the Undead Bard the Mystical Lute Body.


  • Once you have all three lute parts, give the following to Forpar to receive the mystical lute: the head, body and gut strings.

    Forpar Fizfla says 'Goodness! I can hardly contain myself! This will be my greatest creation ever!' Forpar sits down, slides the lute head into place and screws it together. After a few minutes, he begins to string the lute with the gut strings of the poison dragon. A wonderful sound fills the air as he strums the lute once and hands it to you. 'I hope you find a good use for that! I bet you could play it from the mountaintops and the people below would hear you. Thank you, ______, for making my lifelong dream come true!'

    You gain experience!!

  • Now head back to Baldric Slezaf and give him the following items:

    1) Maestro's Symphony Page 24 Top
    2) Maestro's Symphony Page 24 Bottom
    3) Maestro's Symphony Page 25
    4) Mystical Lute from Forpar


    Baldric Slezaf looks shocked as you hand him the pages and the mystical lute. 'I will put on a symphony the likes of which the gods have never seen. Thank you so much, ______. Please take this sword as a token of my gratitude.'

    You gain experience!!

  • He will reward you with the Singing Short Sword.

    I watch over the shoulder of a 56 druid friend as he tried to kill the named wurm (Nez something) in BW. He rooted him, dotted him, then died screaming. The mob summons (51 min), casts wizzie spells and hit the druid (820ac or so) for about 150 a whack. He was blue to a 56. Btw the druid's last words were "NO NO HIT THE BARD!!"

    Well, we killed Phin in KK last night.. no spine. This means either he doesn't drop it all the time, or he's not the right spawn. A friend had an interesting comment.. phin is an ancient fishman, not an ancient fisherman.
    Also, with that new drake in the flight pattern, it's going to be interesting killing all the other drakes to get our onyx to spawn.

    I got the onyx drake guts from Blackwing in Rathe Mt (been working with Crip on this one, thanks for the tip bud). Haven't hit BW or SF yet, but will soon.

    The bard in Qeynos is Jusean Evanescue, and Joffrey has been telling us for months that Juesean's father was a master instrument maker. Jusean himself claims to be out of the flute making business. However, nobody knows who/where his father is. It's certainly possible that Mahlin or the Maestro (or both..) are his father.

    I personaly think it is more likely that the Maestro is Kellin. Turning in the 7 string lute is both too obvious and doesn't ring true (wrong name).

    Question? Has anyone checked MM for any new mobs?
    RE: What we know so far
    # Sep 21 2000 at 5:19 PM Rating: Default
    From reading the other class's progress on these boards, it seems that there are new mob NPCs in MM, but I have not seen any info on what they are or what class they are or what they are named. In other words, I'm not that big o' help. :P

    We know that Maestro is not going to drop the bottom page of 24. The girl in West Karana has it. She even tells us she has it. She wants to keep it cause she thinks it is important. We are going to have to find a way for her to give us that page.
    RE: What we know so far

    No she says she has page 25... or at least that was my impression, but I'm not great at impressions.. :^)

    Actually, she says she's keeping the bottom of the sheet she gives you...And she gives you the top of 24 (Got it last night)

    I have run the first part of this quest and can confirm 100% that when you complete the bard test of speed you receive the top 1/2 of page 24 and Konia Swiftfoot (the initiator of the Test of Speed) states that she is kepping the bottom 1/2 because it has a wonderfull signature on it

    She also says that she thinks it is valuable and worth as much as an instrument the great mahlin (the maestro) used.

    The second part is quite possibly a hint that we need to aquire an instrument (be it made by a new npc or a new drop or something from the planes, I do not know yet) and give it to her in trade for the bottom 1/2 of the page.

    I still think is the seven string lute. Who wants to test it? ;)

    Mahlin's Instrument?
    # Sep 21 2000 at 1:37 AM Rating: Default
    Just a thought, and I'm probably wrong, but I thought I'd share the idea...

    What if the Alluring Horn IS one of Mahlin's instruments? Has anyone tried giving it to the relay quest giver in WK in exchange for the second half of page 24? She does mention how it's almost as valuable as one of his instruments. <shrug>
    A possible solution
    # Sep 20 2000 at 10:54 PM Rating: Default
    I believe you have all answered your own questions. Keep in mind, this is mostly conjecture, an educated guess, but I believe it to be well-founded.

    You know you can get page 24 through the relay quest, and that she'll give you page 25 for one of those instruments. My theory: The new bard in South Karana. Perhaps this is the instrument that will yield page 25. Then one simply gets the items the instrument maker in Steamfont asks for, and gives both pages and the two sheets to the fellow in Dreadlands. Viola.

    Good luck finding out if this works. :-)

    # Sep 20 2000 at 11:35 PM Rating: Decent
    Lol no way
    a) the npc in wk gives u top of page 24
    b) sk npc gives u page 25
    c) npc in wk will give u bottom part for mahlins instrument thats what we need.

    who teh hell is mahlin
    RE: A possible solution
    # Sep 21 2000 at 6:18 AM Rating: Default
    who is the npc that gives page 25?

    do you mean a shadowknight npc or a npc in south karana.

    Are you referring to the drake and wurm quest? Is this confirmed as page 25 or just a guess?

    Could be for the long missing practice lute.

    And i think Mahlin is Mastero from PoH. At least thats what is said in the thread below.

    # Dec 26 2000 at 12:33 AM Rating: Default
    Ok, to clear some misconceptions ive seen in recent posts... Im a lvl49 bard in Bertoxxulous, and i have top and bottom or page 24, just need page 25. You get top of page 24 easily with the relay race as you all know. Now for the bottom part... When you kill Maligar's Dopplganger, you loot his head. You give his head to Baenar in SK, he gives you Mahlin's mystical bongos. You han the bongos to the bard in WK and she gives you the bottom part of the page. Page 25 is the tough one.

    this is a spoiler site.... here the deails
    turn in the horn to the female halfelf in the house at the butcherblock pier, she will give you a note for the excentric gnome instrument maker in steamfont, which the quest starter mentions also.
    turning in that note will mention a mystical instrument.

    You say, 'what mystical instrument ?'

    Forpar Fizfla says 'I have made many mystical instruments in the past. Each one seemed to be better then the last. I have always had a dream of building the world's best lute, but I have yet to find someone brave enough to gather the components needed to make the instrument.


    You say, 'i will gather components'

    Forpar Fizfla says 'To make a mystical lute I will first need to make several pieces. If you bring me the backbone of an ancient fishman, a strong tentacle from one of the long lost amalgyms, and a petrified skull of a lycanthrope I may be able to create the head and neck of the instrument. If you go out and gather these things, make sure to bring me the note I gave you or I might forget who you are. I am getting quite old, you know.


    thats all so far, no clue atm, maybe phinny, amyknight and something else is involved, maybe we are wrong.

    I want to thank the other bards from BB that helped me to gather a nit information ;)

    OK, what we seem to have here is:

    Spawn in Ruins in Dreadlands wants two pages of music and a new lute. The two pages are on a MOB in WK, and people have figured out the trigger for one page, but can't figure out the other. (and I have tried). There are at least two NPC's that are new in SK dealing with this? I have seen one in the northern section right near the fountain (something swiftsong). There is a MOB in Akanon that makes musical intruments of wonderful quality.. but won't give anyone the time of day. We also have Quag Maelstrom suddenly dropping a musical instrument that looks very much like a quest item (and this is a new drop on live server.. at least he didn't drop it the 4x I killed him last week). Anyone else have anything to add??

    After doing the lambent quests and everything, I remember the male bard guy saying something about "asking him later about a bard weapon." This has been in the game for at least a month or 2. I tried a million and one phrases, but no response. I figured it to be part of our particle weapon, but since it wasn't implimented yet, I was not really surprised.

    I don't remember if he will say the same phrase again without lambent stuff, I just remember him saying it in part of the conversation (since I do the whole Hail to make sure I have the right components).

    I will be checking again today... I'll let ya know if anything is different.

    Ok all:)
    if you go to the bard npc in dreadlands ini the old abonded city and talk to him he will tell u of a npc named Forpar Fizfla in Ak'anon who is a great flute maker.Heres teh kicker i think that part is broken and needs fixing because when i hailed him he said he woudl not talk to a half-elf then i had an elf hail same thing. Then i thought hey hes agnome so i had a gnome hail him and he too would not talk to the gnome som im guessin that part needs fixing. The npc itself coned warmly to me. It coudl be u jus had over the parts and he makes u a flute with no talking.

    Has anyone tried to kill her and loot the second half of the sheet off the greedy and unthankful NPC who only gave you half for all your work? Maybe she is the Sir Lucan, for the SF sword of the quest, you need to kill her for that rest of the sheet? Just a suggestion?

    Yeah, thats how Bards work... if it dont cough up the goods, BASH IT!

    What the hell were you thinking?

    I dont have any actualy info.. But I do have to agree with the Idea of travel.. Seems to me, that MAYBE, you may have to deliver some mail.. too many bards in the game as NPC's, talkin about mail for it not to be involved. And when you think about it, Delivering mail gives you loads of faction, if done enough. And you ALWAYS need faction with somebody to have a quest go right. And the Pally has to have BUTTLOADS of faction to pull of the FA quest. Just imagine.. you go from town to town, delivering mail, and running the relay torches, spreading information, and music as you go.

    Oh, and that gnome guy... My thought on that, is a new faction. (DUH)

    This is the part where I suggest somebody kill him, because if there IS a new faction, yours will get worse when you slay him.

    some possibilities to try:
    "what signature"
    "who was the great Mahlin"

    Keep in mind that Jusean (bard outside guild in Qeynos, gives watch report quest) learned to make instruments from his father (never sited in the game) and that he made a flute for one of the bards inside the guild. He is no longer in the flute making business however. Could Mahlin be Jusean's father?

    1,635 posts
    This was sent in to me by Lenyen:

    There is a new npc located at the Skeletal pyramids near the combine druid ring and wizard spires. His name is Baldric Slezaf and when hailed he replies with:

    "Baldric Slezaf says 'Hello Lenyen . Don't you think this would be a wonderful place to perform a symphony?"

    Upon further questioning with the keyword symphony included he replys with:

    "It has been my dream for years to perform a symphony that would be remembered for ages to come. I have run into a few minor snags, however."

    Then a question is asked about what snags he ran into, he replys with:

    "Several years ago I bought sheets of the most beautiful sounding music from a traveling merchant. He did not know the author of the work as it was simply signed 'the Maestro'.
    The melody I played from them was wondrous and invoked feelings in me I have never felt before. However, as I reached the middle of the music, I discovered it was missing two pages!"

    Questioning him on the whereabouts of the two pages brings this about:

    "The pages that were missing were pages 24 and 25. I have been searching the world for a spot to hold my symphony and I have finally found it. Without the music and a new lute crafted by the famous instrument maker Forpar Fizfla, I do not think I can pull it off."

    The final step I can get to is questioning him about Forpar Fizfla:

    "Forpar Fizfla is an eccentric instrument maker from Ak'Anon. He makes enchanted instruments that enhance the sound of the music. If I am to perform the concert of all concerts, I must have one of his instruments. I went to Ak'Anon, seeking to purchase an instrument from him but he wouldn't even speak to me."

    This is as far as I got in the quest. One must assume this is the FA quest for bards and that it will involve kill the Maestro at least once.

    I went to Forpar Fizfla in Steamfont. He is in the middle windmill across from Strumharp.

Illusions don't change anything but what he calls you. He was red to me at 36, so I couldn't try to charm him.

    One can get the top portion of Maestro's Symphony page 24 by doing the relay quest which starts with an NPC named Konia Swiftfoot in the guard tower of West Karana closest to Qeynos Hills. The relay involves taking a torch that Konia gives you to Misty Thicket. Near the wall you find a wood elf named Fajio Knego. Give him the torch and he gives you another to run to Southern Ro. The torch goes to Andrad Filla near the zone to Innothole Swamp. He then gives you a torch to run to Misty Teckcihta, who is near the Arena in Lake Rathe. She gives you a ring called "Proof of Speed". You return that to Konia to get the top half of page 24.

    Hope this helps :)

    After turning in the Proof of Speed ring and receiving the top half of page 24, Konia mentions that she still has the bottom half of the page with Mahlin's (the Maestro) signature and is keeping it for its value. Didn't have any luck with trigger phrase attempts about it, though.

    She says she would trade the page for one oh mahlin's instruments...so Im betting you need to either give her one from the plane of hate...or perhaps this Forpar fellow whom we cant get to talk yet will give you an instrument

    If we consider that the FA quest involved not only getting soulfire and ghoulbane, but also dragon slaying and PoS travels, I think it's far more likely that mahlin's instrument comes from the plane of air... or a high lvl kunark zone.

    On the other hand, why is Nostrolo's tambourine no drop?

    If the name "Maestro" is in the Quest, then it just might be the Maestro from Hate. So far I've gotten 2 weapons from him, but no instruments. *sigh*

    Kelin's 7 stringed lute? I don't think so because those Lute has stats on it

    Dont Discount turning in a Bard uber-weapon from Hate, Pallys have to turn in Soulfire for FA,
    Also, since it seems the Warriors have a two sword quest, anyone looking for perhaps a pierce, blunt, and slash for bards? PoS has three to choose from for Bards. More to chew on.

    You're being way too hypothetical. There's no basis for your suggestion whatsoever.

    Verant said the quests would be of the same caliber, not identical!! *smack* Stick to the facts and suggestions that could turn up more information.

    What I am really worried about, is that the lute you need to hand in, might very well be the Lute from VP. I hope its just Kelins Lute tho heh, that won't be a problem. Maybe if you have to turn in an uber lute for the quest, the sword is a weapon and instument combo? Just something to think about

    There are spoiler pics out of all the uber weapons. Whether they are fake or not, I have no idea. The bard weapon has musical notes floating about it. A little disappointing, actualy... I think we would be better served w/ an uber instrument than an uber weapon.

    But what if it's a weapon and an instrument? ;)
