!! ABOUT !!

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

Way back when, EQ information, on the Internet, was sparse, incomplete, erroneous and / or even non-existent. Players were 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.

Because of this, to be successful in EQ, you had to do a lot of out-of-game time-consuming research, in-game figuring out and pencil & paper note making. Since I was doing a lot of that anyway, I decided to simply compile my in-game experience / notes / research... web-page style... and share them 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 expanded on them ever since.

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

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; in Server and Server Wide Channels; look it up on on the Internet ("Google It"), this site and / or other EQ sites.


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 strategies by sheer force.

Be warned, however, that some game 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 or bug out, otherwise.

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 required in said bag.

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.

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

There are also a number of pages that are incomplete / unfinished. This site is a work in progress and I update / work on them as I find the time. Sometimes, pages I start get set to the side in favor of other pages, but hopefully, I will get them all done at some point.

I welcome all feedback to make these pages as 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 and suggestions for things you might like to see me add.

  • I prefer you can contact me by posting to a Forum on my Discord server.
  • You can also send 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 distract from game play. Plus, any concerns you note are not in a written form 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 channel is NOT monetized (ad driven)! The You Tube Channel is primarily there to support this web site & Facebook, but feel free to subscribe if you want to see any new EQ-related Videos that are posted.

I pay for (and maintain) my interconnected web presence (this Site, Facebook, Discord, You Tube). It is offered 100% free to everyone... with no adds, registration, logging in, fees or anything like that.

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 appreciation / support, there are some in-game things that I would not be adverse to accepting.  So long as there are no expectations on me (i.e. come help) or I am otherwise involved (grouping, raiding...), such things include:

  • Tradeable 'Rot Loot' to actually use; for my "wall collection;" Rares; or to help maintain my Tribute pool (Parcel them to me).
  • Tradable items on my "want" list, such as Click Items; Needed Gear; LoN / Heritage Crate Items such as Illusions, Mounts, Familiars; Click items; Hero's Forge Ornaments and / or other things I am still missing (just Parcel them to me).
  • 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, old and new).
  • No Trade 'Rot Loot' that I may need; is on my want list (i.e. Click items, etc.); and / or to add to my 'wall collection' (if I am able to come get them).

Other than that, feedback on errors / typos / concerns and such, that you may come across on this site, is appreciated (how to contact me is noted above).


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!
