Anniversary events tend to run from mid-March to mid-April (sometimes to mid-May) each year. They are not available during the "off season".

For an overview and list of EverQuest Anniversary events, see this quest entry.



This is an anniversary quest available only during anniversary season (a few weeks during March and April). It was introduced in 2009 as part of EverQuest's 10th anniversary.

This is one of 16 deity quests. For an overview of how rewards work and how these quests are linked with one another, see this writeup.

Below here are the details for this particular quest.



This task begins with Avatar of Karana in South Karana (-3692.78, -1810.55 towards middle of zone - east of Splitpaw; northwest of hermit).

You say, 'Hail, Avatar of Karana'

Avatar of Karana says 'Behold, mortal, I am Karana, Bringer of Storms. I find it appropriate to re-enter the mortal realm and gather new worshippers to my creed. To prosper among the other gods, I must extend my influence across the worlds, across the planes. You might hold the [key] to my success, and thus become the recipient of my favor.'

You say, 'The key?'

Avatar of Karana says 'I have set much work before my followers. For my power to grow, I require greater and greater amounts of worship from the mortal flock. For that to happen, they must be inspired by displays of my power. Thus, it is not an easy thing for me to display my powers in places where I have no worshippers, in places where it never rains. I have a [plan] to overcome that dilemma.'

You say, 'What plan?'

Avatar of Karana says 'I have given items and boons to my prominent followers among the mortals. If you will [accept] your fate as my loyal worshipper, I will tell you who you must follow.'

You say, 'I accept!'

Avatar of Karana says 'Very well, I am pleased with your piety. I shall look to be equally pleased by your service to me. Seek out Tober Grandim, in Blightfire Moors. He will give you the artifact that will conjure my power.'

You have been assigned the task 'Tears of a God - Karana's Favor'.

Karana needs you to give the people of certain parts of Norrath and the Planes reason to fear him, and start worshipping him, by making it rain in these places.



Hail Tober Grandim in Blightfire Moors

Speak with Tober Grandim in Blightfire Moors (by the Old Tower in the NW corner of the zone, /loc +879, +3094, is KOS to certain people but you can hail from a distance or while invis).

You say, 'Hail, Tober Grandim'

Your task 'Tears of a God - Karana's Favor' has been updated.

Tober Grandim says 'Ah, so Great Karana sends another willing acolyte! Perfect! I have a simple task for you, friend - as Karana has no doubt told you, he needs us to extend his power into places which never feel his power. That means it's up to us to make it rain in places that never receive a single raindrop, ever. The list of places this includes is quite a long one - but if you can make it rain in Everfrost Peaks, the Abysmal Sea, the Gulf of Gunthak, Corathus Creep, the Scarlet Desert, and the Plane of Knowledge, you will make our master very happy indeed.'

Receive True Karanite Rod of Rainfall (used to make it rain).

The following steps must be done in order:

Make it rain in Everfrost Peaks 0/1

Make it rain in Abysmal Sea 0/1

Make it rain in Gulf of Gunthak 0/1

Make it rain in Corathus Creep 0/1

Make it rain in Scarlet Desert 0/1

Make it rain in Plane of Knowledge 0/1

Hail Tober Grandim 0/1

You say, 'Hail, Tober Grandim'

Your task 'Tears of a God - Karana's Favor' has been updated.

Tober Grandim says 'Perfect, the rain has come to the driest of places! Karana be praised!'

Hail Avatar of Karana 0/1

You say, 'Hail, Avatar of Karana'

Your task 'Tears of a God - Karana's Favor' has been updated.

You have successfully earned the favor of the Stormbringer God, Karana!

Avatar of Karana says 'Your deeds have renewed my power in this world, already I can feel the mana from new worshippers adding into my spirit. I thank you, mortal, and give you this as a token of my appreciation.'

Celebratory Firework Caster (if this is your first diety task)

For the record, these clicks can all be done from anywhere in the zone.

Also, almost all of the Diety quests are re-doable, with the reward being just money, experience, and the distilate (if you have already received the fireworks focus and experience potion for a particular quest)

For anyone interested in the dialogue of this escapade:

Upon finding Karana:

You say, "Hail, Avatar of Karana."

Avatar of Karana says "Behold, mortal, I am Karana, Bringer of Storms, I find it appropriate to re-enter the moral realm and gather new worshippers to my creed. To prosper among the other gods, I must extend my influence across the worlds, across the lanes. You might hold the [key] to my success, and thus become the recipient of my favor"

You say, "The key?"

Avatar of Karana says "I have set much work before my followers. For my power to grow, I require greater and greater amounts of worship from the mortal flock. For that to happen, they must be inspired by displays of my power. Thus, it is not an easy thing for me to display my powers in places where I have no worshippers, in places where it never rains. I have a [plan] to overcome that dilemma.

You say, "What plan?"

Avatar of Karana says "I have given items and boons to my prominent followers among the mortals. If you will [accept] your fate as my loyal worshipper, I will tell you who you must follow.

You say "I accept."

Avatar of karana says "Very well, I am pleased with your piety. I shall look to be equally pleased by your service to me. Seek out Tober Grandim, in Blightfire Moors. He will give you the artifact that will conjure my power.


At Tober Grandim for the first time

You say, Hail, Tober Grandim

Tober Grandim says, "Ah, so Great Karana sends another willing acolyte! Perfect! I have a simple task for you, friend - as Karana has no doubt told you, he needs us to extend his power into places which never feel his power. That means it's up to us to make it rain in places that never receive a single raindrop, ever. The list of places this includes is quite a long one - but if you can make it rain in Everfrost Peaks, the Abysmal Sea, the Gulf of Gunthak, Corathus Creep, the Scarlet Desert, and the Plane of Knowledge, you will make our master very happy indeed.

(got artifact)

Run challenges.


Oops. Missed the final dialogue with Tober Grandim, but after it the artifact was gone, don't know if that was intended or not, as it had 10 charges on it for "making friends with animals" But as a level 2 character ranger with Karana as the diety, perhaps it was not meant to be.


Final encounter with Avatar of Karana

You say, Hail, Avatar of Karana

Avatar of Karana says "Your deeds have renewed my power in this world, already I can feel the mana from new worshippers adding into my spirit. I thank you, mortal, and give you this as a token of my appreciation."

(choice of distillate was given, and gifts receieved).

When last I did this quest, Grandim could be hailed while invisible. Failing that, just do a fast drive-by hail on the run. :)
