The ability to cast ‘spellsongs’, bard mastery, is achieved by performing one of three quests given by Sir Berran the Song Wielder, Sir Hareus the Battle Rouser or Sir Falean the Spirit Soother. They are found in the Conservatory of Music in Britain (both facets). Caution, only one ‘mastery’ can be held at any time. Mastering a second ‘song’ negates the first mastery. To regain a mastery you must repeat the quest to unlock it. Spellsongs do not affect normal use of barding skills, however you must have ‘master’ level in both the specific skill and musicianship to undertake the quest. Each completion of the quest is rewarded with a full Book of Bardic Masteries.
Sir Berran the Song Weilder
Wielding the Sonic Blade
To unlock the discordance mastery abilities for bards you must discord 5 goats and thereby gain the mastery of song wielding.
Sir Falean the Spirit Soother
The Beacon of Harmony

Sir Hareus the Battle Rouser
Indoctrination of a Battle Rouser

Once mastered, the spellsongs are ‘cast’ in the same way as casting a magic spell. Having mastered the art of your choice, proceed to the Bard Mastery page for details of the songs.
