The Musician's Handbook is a Hardmode Bard accessory that can be purchased from the Merchant. When equipped, it causes Symphonic weapons to deal no damage, but also makes them require no inspiration to use, prevents big instruments from being mistimed, and increases the playing speed based on the position of the accessory in the player's accessory slot; each slot down increases the playing speed by 25% each. This accessory is designed to allow players to play instruments for music instead of combat.


  • Although the weapons themselves are unable to deal damage directly, they are still capable of inflicting debuffs on hit.


  • Symphonic playing speed bonus now dependent on the accessory slot (0-100%).
  • Introduced.
