Inattentiveness, laziness and bad strategy do not equate to a glitch, a bug or the need to 'fix' things. You simply need to be a more attentive student of the game, while developing and adjusting your strategies and approach. This challenge... this pursuit... is what creates the adventure! And adventure is where the fun resides! -- Bonzz

While this page was originally created from a Paladin perspective, for the most part, the contents are universal (all classes)!

This site works on the basis that you are able to find your own way from one zone to another; and that you can read the 'story.' 'lore' and / or 'spam' on your own (I do not normally include the storylines or lore); and that you generally understand the EQ Basics.

Some pages also have game related sounds, that play once and stop. If you don't want to hear the sound play out, you can pause it from the top right of some browsers, such as Google Chrome (see image below).

Click the music note and then click the pause icon to stop sound from playing on a given page.

!! ABOUT !!

Be aware that I am not -- and have never have been -- a GM, a Guide, a Dev, a CSR or a EG7 / Darkpaw / Daybreak / Sony / Verant) employee.

Bonzz (pronounced 'Bones' not 'Bahnz') was the first character I ever created and is still my main character. The name 'Bonzz' was based on the fact that Paladins like to kill undead (as in skeletons that are made of bones). I originally intended to name him 'Bones' (with a slight nod to Star Trek and Dr. McCoy). However, the game would not let me take that name, so a few variant spelling attempts later, 'Bonzz' was accepted.

I do not make any claim to be the know-all-be-all about all things EverQuest, which is why every one of my pages asks for feedback on errors and so forth.

I created this site, long ago. The pages I have created are ones that I felt, at the time, could use a good walk-through, more in-depth explanation, better details and the like... where everything is generally all in one place with little to no web page & site hopping.

Way back when, EQ information on the Internet was sparse, incomplete, erroneous and / or even non-existent. Players tended to be tight lipped about their "secrets." Quests did not have a Task Window to tell you what to do next. There were no Achievements to follow or use as a check list. What you could find on the Internet meant a lot of back-and-forth between pages and / or various web sites, if you found it at all.

Because of this, to be successful in EQ, you had to do a lot of out-of-game time-consuming research, in-game figuring things out and pencil & paper note making. Since I was doing a lot of that anyway, I decided to simply compile it web-page style... and then share it freely with everyone else. Why not? After a while, I actually came to find a level of enjoyment in making these pages and have modified, maintained, updated and / or expanded on them ever since.

As a note, these pages are written with a modicum of expectation that you, the Player, have a level of EQ Savvy, such as getting from one zone to another, talking to NPC's and so forth.

While I do appreciate the in-game tells, please understand that I do not have a photographic memory of every single step of every single quest. Please don't expect me to actively help you in-game or walk / talk you through something!

Instead, ask for help from your Guild; from your Fellowship; from Players in Server & Server Wide Channels; look it up on on the Internet ("Google It"); utilize this site and / or other EQ sites; and so on.


Please be aware that many of these pages were originally written long ago from the perspective of the original player levels, strategies and so forth. This does not mean they are no longer accurate. It simply means the old references, strategies and game functions may be moot issues with current game levels, gear, spells, DPS, game changes and so forth.

In short, it is possible a single player can easily defeat a target that once took an entire raid force to beat... or you may sometimes be able to overpower the old event mechanics by sheer force.

Be warned, however, that some event mechanics are set in stone and you can't avoid them! For instance, if mechanics require that Target #1 must be killed before Target #2, then you must abide by that... or the event can fail and / or bug out.

By the same token, some old game mechanics might not apply any more. For instance, I may warn you to have a 'bag slot open,' because... in the past... bags could not be placed in bags (not even empty ones). Now they can. However, a free bag slot is still required if a combine is involved.

Additionally, some old content may actually be even harder to defeat these days! For instance, if the event requires the balancing multiple MOB's within 1% to 5% of each other... current DPS levels may make this extremely difficult to do.

To recap, old strategies may no longer be of great relevance, allowing you to "power" through much of the older content with ease, less players and / or even molo or solo. However, game mechanics are still in place and in many cases, must still be abided by.

This site also has a number of pages that are incomplete / unfinished, as this site is a work in constant progress! I update / work on these pages as I find the time. Sometimes, pages I start often get set to the side in favor of other pages, but hopefully, I will get them finished at some point.

These pages relate to standard Live Server rules (as opposed to TLP Servers & other Special Servers). However, that does not mean they cannot still be useful to TLP Players.

Additionally, this site is not, and is not intended to be, an all-inclusive EQ Web Site. However, I do have pages, data and information you will not find anywhere else!

Sir Bonzz of Bertoxxulous is a group on Facebook that has regular posts about EQ Secrets, items, trivia, videos, name that zone, EQ Polls, name that creature, Patch Day Movies and all sorts of other EQ related fun and informative stuff!

Join Bonzz's Discord Server, which include topical Forums where everyone can help each other with questions about EverQuest (Web Site Feedback, Quest / Raid help, Bonzz's Updates to You Tube / Web Site; EQ / Daybreak Notices; Event Calendar, Overseer, in-game 'storyline' quest guides (Alt N), GINA Triggers and more)!

There is also the ability talk (voice chat) to each other, if you wish.

Other Discord Servers you may find useful:


I welcome all feedback to make the pages on this site as correct as possible (spelling, details, clarity, misinformation, etc.).

I do look into all concerns expressed to me and make any corrections / modifications that may be needed. I also welcome any suggestions for things you might like to see me add.

  • I prefer that you contact me by posting to the appropriate Forum on my Discord server.
  • You can also send an in-game EQ Mail to Bonzz on the Bertoxxulous server (Bertox.Bonzz).
  • I prefer that in-game tells NOT be used to contact me, as they can distract from my game play. Plus, any concerns you note are not in a written form that I can easily find and reference later (like I can with an EQ Mail or a Discord post).

Look for Bonzz on You Tube!

This You Tube channel is NOT monetized (aka ad-driven)!

The You Tube Channel is primarily there as video support for this web site & Facebook. Feel free to subscribe to see any new EQ-related Videos that are posted. As of this typing, there are over 3,300 original EQ related videos, and counting, all of which are also categorized into topical play lists.


I pay for and / or maintain the interconnected web presence that makes up the 'Bonzz Network,' if you will: this site (; Sir Bonzz Facebook GroupBonzz's Discord Server; & Bonzz's You Tube Channel).

All of which are offered 100% free to everyone... with no registration, no log in needed, no fees or anything like that (other than may be required by Facebook, Discord and You Tube, that is)!

I do have people ask me how they can show support and appreciation by sending me real money. I even have people, in game, offer me Platinum (I am not hurting for Platinum at the moment)... or randomly send me Parcels like stat drink / food (I keep myself supplied with the best stat drinks & foods).

While I appreciate the recognition, if you really want to show your support, there are some in-game things that I would not be adverse to accepting. So long as there are no expectations on my part (i.e. come help, etc.), or I am not otherwise involved (grouping, raiding...).

Such things include:

  • FEEDBACK! I 100% welcome, want and appreciate all feedback on errors / typos / concerns and such, that you may come across on this site (how to contact me is noted below). My own errors, typos and such annoy even me! Help me fix them, so that future readers see the better info!
  • VANIKI SERVER: Raid Invites for Achievement Raids (let me know in advance via an in-game e-mail or vis Discord as to when to log in)!
  • HERO"S FORGE ORNAMENTS (BERTOX SERVER): I am currently in need of: Ancient Ssraeshzian Cloth Helm & Sinister Ornaments (Plate: Head, Legs; Chain: Head, Chest, Legs, Hands; Cloth: Head, Chest, Robe; Leather: Head, Arms, Legs, Wrist).
  • CHASE LOOT (BERTOX SERVER): 'Rare' items to add to my collection habit (Parcel them to me).
  • TASK ADDS (BERTOX SERVER): Task Adds (Group) and / or DZ Adds (Raid) for the Specialty Coin and / or Achievements that I may not yet have (particularly Conquest and Raid achievements).
  • MARKETPLACE TRADABLES (BERTOX SERVER): Marketplace and Click Items you don't want (Parcel them to me), such as LoN / Heritage Crate Items; Illusions; Mounts; Familiars; Hero's Forge Ornaments; and / or other things. Even if I may all ready have it, I can still use them to barter for what I do need!


I made a serverwide in-game Chat Channel just in case anyone wants to join. Use it for the purpose of seeking info & help from each other and myself (if I am on), or to help me out by posting item links that I can use to grab images and / or videos from (for this site, You Tube, Discord and / or Facebook)!

Join today, or even better, add it to your Auto Joined Channels!

Yes -- I am aware Serverwide channels have been problematic (I often can't get in my own channel, which is why I made a new one as noted below)!

/join serverwide.sirbonzz:bonzz

-- or --

/autojoin serverwide.sirbonzz:bonzz


Other useful in-game channels include:

  • EQ Traders channel (/join serverwide.eqtraders:eqtraders);
  • Allakhazam (aka ZAM aka fanbyte) channel (/join serverwide.allakhazam.allkhazam);
  • EQ Resource channel (/join serverwide.eqresource:eqresource);
  • General server channel (/join General);
  • Class Channels, named for the class, such as the Paladin server channels (/join Paladin).

Bonzz's Verified Magelo Profile

In case you question my footing... here is the proof in the pudding! - Bonzz

Recognizing the 'Real' Bonzz

More than once I have been confused with other Players of similar name spellings or from other servers.

There are characters named Bonzz on more than one server, that are not necessarily me.

Any postings from 'Bonzz' on other sites are not me, but could be Players that use the name on other servers.

The real Bonzz is a Half Elf Paladin on the Bertox & Vaniki servers. On Test I am Bonzze. I do have Bonzz characters on other servers, but they were created just to secure the name on those servers and sometimes for research (i.e. Bazaar searches for items and such).


Any others that you find useful? Let me know!

Download and unzip this file to the 'storyline' folder of your EverQuest directory to have access to most of the above links, in-game, via your Story window (Alt N)!


If you note any errors, misspellings, item name errors, misinformation or anything that needs addressing on this page -- PLEASE let me know via an in-game EQ Message (Bonzz on the Bertoxxulous server), or post on Bonzz's Discord Server!
