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 the Primate of Prexus in Erud's Crossing (loc -1842, +712 - next to the dock when you zone in).

You say, 'Hail, Primate of Prexus'

Primate of Prexus says 'Hello Monkey! May the Ocean be calm and your catch nourishing. Is the ocean not [grand]?'

You say, 'Grand?'

Primate of Prexus says 'Yes. The way it caresses the skin and warms the blood. It is a [Blessing] to have the Ocean.'

You say, 'A blessing...'

Primate of Prexus says 'Prexus has spread his blessing over the Oceans. He gives travelers safe passage over its water, and makes sure the bounty of the ocean continues. He even blesses [Fishing] of the Oceans.'

You say, 'Fishing?'

Primate of Prexus says 'Yes. He blesses fishing. Fishing is just like hunting, part of the cycle of life. As long as you respect that the life of the oceans must continue, he does not begrudge any being the bounty of the oceans. Prexus has recently given an extra blessing to some of the fish of the Oceans. If you wish you can go fish some of these as an [offering] to Prexus.'

You say, 'I'll make an offering'

Primate of Prexus says 'May Prexus further bless your travels while you complete this offering.'

Nope, can't prefish - the versions you catch are special "blessed" versions, and you need to catch to get the update on the quest.
Still possible?

I'm either unlucky, very bad at fishing, or this is not possible anymore. I've been fishing for the first fish for about an hour, and I've leveled fishing to 74 from 10 so far and still nothing.

Hail before doing turn-in
# Apr 10 2009 at 11:37 AM Rating: Decent
Be sure to hail him before you hand him the fish. I did the turn in without hailing him first and lost all my fish and had to do the quest over. Spent a whole afternoon trying to get back into Ocean of Tears. I'm still stuck in the water. Keeps crashing when I swim for a distance. Very disappointed that a quest would include such an unstable zone.

Yes, you can. :)
Handy thing!

Do the small quest for the Fisherman's companion and bring Catch-A-Lot bait. You will not regret it when trying to get these little buggers on your hook :)

Actually the fishing companion would be the most useful of the two, as the bonuses from each do not stack. The fishing pole is +3% fishing, the bait is +2% fishing; the pole wins.

You have given a blessed offering to Prexus.


I'd also like to note that you *can* eat the blessed fish, so ensure you have other food at the top of your inventory first.

You can still catch regular Barren Flounder which will not update the quest. It must be a Blessed Barren Flounder. I caught one yesterday and did receive the update.

At first I caught the normal version and was all happy, then confused I did not get an update until I realized I did not catch a blessed fish. Maybe this happened to you?

Good luck and happy fishing.
