EverQuest Wiki

There are currently 27 languages in Everquest.  Everyone starts out with Common Tongue at a skill of 100.  There are many race and class specific languages, of which player characters of a specific race/class start with a 100 skill. Other languages are learned by different means, such as Training Points in a specific language at your Guild Master or grouping with someone who speaks the desired langage and "listening" to them speak while speaking the language back to them (the later is NOT required but it does help the training go faster).  The exception to this is the Alaran and Hadal languages which were added with the Veil of Alaris expansion.  These two languages can only be learned through specific tasks and missions.  Hadal is only improved by being a task leader of specific missions in Rubak.

The chart below shows the Language #, name and which race/class can speak it.

(Usage /language # for example typing /language 1 would set that specific chat windows language to Common Tongue)
