Elona Wiki

Instruments are items used in the Performer skill. To play an instrument, go to the tool menu, and select your instrument. There is a small chance that general goods stores and the two furniture stores at The Embassy, will have instruments in stock. Party Time! locations will always have instruments to steal and a chance of having additional instruments tossed at you for performing well enough. Also in Elona+, all generic instruments, except the harp, are on display and stealable in a room in Ol-dran.

The Pianist class begins the game with a grand piano.

Note that your pets won't carry instruments for you, since they're furniture, which can increase the rank of your home.

List of instruments[]

A higher quality instrument will generally perform better, though the exact effects aren't known.

If a player is overweight, the performance can be interrupted by the crushing damage. An alternative is to drop your instrument and press return, allowing you to use anything at your feet.

Be careful if you leave your instrument on the ground outside of your house for a few days or if a Party Time! quest ends with your instrument on the ground, it will disappear.
