EVERQUEST 15TH ANNIVERSARY EVENTS

Where to find them and how to do them!

It's the big one-five, and we still survive! - Bonzz

ANNIVERSARY LORE

The 5th Anniversary of EverQuest saw the introduction of temporary, special Anniversary event(s).

After that, it became an annual inclusion in EverQuest, with new event(s) being added each year, as well as the old ones being reactivated right along beside them.

Anniversary Events generally start around March 16th (EverQuest was launched March 16, 1999), and continue to about mid-May.

There are so many Anniversary Events now, that they are implemented in two parts... "Modern" events (14th Anniversary and forward) and "Legacy" events (5th to 13th Anniversary). The Mechanical Fortune Teller (near the Crescent Reach stone) was added to the Plane of Knowledge, to help direct you to the events (by year). Just hail her and follow along.

As a note, there were no Anniversary Events before the 5th Year of EverQuest.

The "Legacy" events do not award Commemorative Coins, but do include Fabled MOB's. These events do not start until about mid-April.

The "Modern" generally award Commemorative Coin, which is a specialty coin that can used to buy special items with "a jubilant merchant" in the Plane of Knowledge (near the Nexus stone, and the stuff ain't cheap). These events start right away (mid-March).

15TH ANNIVERSARY

The 15th Anniversary was in 2014, which are the second year of 'Modern' Anniversary events.

Commemorative Coins (Anniversary-only alternative currency) were introduced with the 15th Anniversary events (see above).

The Plane of War was added during the 15th Anniversary, BUT it is not actually an Anniversary event... it was added as a permanent zone, but it does have Anniversary events tied to it.

Magically Delicious (Solo)

1) PLANE OF KNOWLEDGE:: Before you actually start this quest, you need do acquire a number of items.

NOTE: While this Quest requires a level of preparation, don't let that discourage you. If you can acquire a plentiful stock of the items noted in Steps 1 to 11, this Quest becomes easy to repeat and is worth the effort. Particularly if you are looking to earn enough Commemorative Coins to buy any of the unique items sold by a jubilant merchant (in the Plane of Knowledge). This Quest awards twenty (20) Commemorative Coins, which more than all most any other anniversary quest (from any year). So, if you stock up on supplies, you can basically skip these first eleven (11) steps!

Head to Chef Denrun, who is in a building near the 'small' bank (/waypoint -300, 760).

Buy from him at least (if you want to 'stock up,' but incremental amounts of these items):

A quick way to get here is with the Islander Hammock, if you have one.

NOTE: After the Quest has ended, these recipes will be 'forgotten' (disappear from your recipe lists in those same devices). If you plan to do this quest again, before you do the combines, add it them to you  'favorite' recipe listings. This way, they should show back up on your 'favorite' list the next time you do this Quest and help expedite the combine process.

.

19) PLANE OF KNOWLEDGE: Head back to Jimothy the Delicious.

Next, say 'Ready' to zone into the instance.

.

2) PLANE OF TRANQUILITY: DEFENDING KNOWLEDGE: You are here to defend MoB's from the Plane of Disease from getting to the Plane of Knowledge portal (Book portal).

First up, there is the optional step (not required) to chose a 'Blessing' from one (1) of the eight (8) NPC's you will see up the hill, outside the building where the Plane of Knowledge Portal is located.

You can chose only one 'Blessing,' which will  apply to your entire group (different Players can not make different choices). Talk to any of the NPC's and follow along to get whichever 'Blessing' you want.

The 'Blessings' are:

BONUS ITEM: There is a second 'optional' step (prevent all, 100%, of the MoB's from getting to the Plane of Knowledge Portal. If you do, the chest at the end will contain one (1) Miniature Horn of Unity, which is a 30-second group clicky buff (+200 Mana, Endurance and Hit Point Regen, +2K Spell Damage Shield, +600 Damage Shield).

.

3) PLANE OF TRANQUILITY: Next, you will also see a large cornucopia type horn (the 'Horn of Unity') in the same area.

Go up and click on it to start the event, and initiate the first wave.

MoB's can include a random mix of a oozes, (stomachs), undead rats, mind worms, war wraiths, nightmare horses, boar beasts, underbulks, lava golems, puslings, (doomfire), mosquitoes, flies, ogres, ravens, mephits. fire elementals and the like.

Each wave will get a little tougher than the previous wave (hit harder). Mez, Stun and Root work on all of them.

MoB's will emanate from the zone they apply to. Each 'wave' will come in two (2) separate spawns (they don't all spawn and attack at the same time), so be ready for that. 

You will now need to do the following...

There is another optional step, after the waves are defeated, to go back and hail the NPC you obtained a 'Blessing' from (if you did that). NOTE: I am unclear on if this relates to or does anything special. Anyone know?

Now hail Bjerg Sen the Tranquil, to finish up.

Don't forget to open / loot the (?chest name?).

Or, you can chose the more expedient option and say 'enemies' to Spinner, kill him, and then loot the Crystal Harvester Mold.

Use the forge, make a Crystal Harvester (Click Effect: Till Soil), using Burled Wood x6, Tin Ore x2, Faceted Crystal & Crystal Harvester Mold (Smithing 15).

The Immaculate Animal Pelt can drop from bears, lions and / or wolves, that you can find roaming to the south, in mid-zone.

Once you have a Immaculate Animal Pelt, take it back to Chief Goonda and give it to him.

You may have to do more than one (1) mission to get them both.

REWARD: Five (5) Commemorative Coin. It has a lock out timer of six (6) hours, before you can do it again, if you wish to do so.

.

Well, head back over to Reebo Leafsway & Shakey Scarecrow.

You may notice that Shakey Scarecrow looks a bit dilapidated, and the Quest is called 'Sprucing Up Shakey,' after all.

So, use the Shimmering Hay to spruce up Shakey Scarecrow (give the Shimmering Hay to Shakey Scarecrow), and make him look brand new (see below video)!
