Birdpipes, also known as shalm, were a type of pan pipes. Sacred to Lliira and the satyrs, birdpipes were quite popular among the wood elves and wild elves.[3][1]


Burdpipes were somewhat related to the common longhorn. Their rich sound came from a series of vertical tubes of different lengths, and was said to be able to charm ferocious animals. They could also be purchased through Aurora's Whole Realms Catalogue.[2]
