EVERQUEST 6TH ANNIVERSARY EVENTS
Where to find them and how to do them!
If you have a notion, you can get the Potion! - Bonzz
The 5th Anniversary of EverQuest saw the introduction of temporary, special Anniversary event.
After that, it became an annual inclusion in EverQuest, with new events 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 now so many Anniversary Events that they are implemented in two parts... "Modern" events (14th Anniversary and forward) and "Legacy" events (5th to 13th Anniversary).
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 near mid-April.
The "Modern" events generally do 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, stuff ain't cheap!). These events start right away.
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), because now, there are a lot of them. Just hail her and follow along.

The prize for this task is a Ceremonial Elixir of Scholarship (10 charges of 100% Experience boost -- and it's cool looking placeable, too)! Use it wisely (like when new Levels are added or a new Expansion comes out)!

Otherwise, go head out to start your hunt for the (10) items you need (you go to the zones in any order you wish, see #2 to #11, below). All zones are the old / original zones.
NOTE: While you can certainly do this quest more than once, you only get the reward item once (see #13, below)
