  • As of the 1st of June, 2016, update, this instrument has consistent tempo and is now no longer locked into a specific one.
  • Can be played while walking.
  • At the top of the falls in Auric Basin (~5500 units above Fahautl Grounds) there is a hylek NPC named Nelisqua that wants you to try playing a duet with them using their spare lute. As long as you stay in range, you can continue to play the lute as long as you desire, making the instrument free so long as you stay in the area.
