The first Hardcore Heritage zones (Blackburrow and Cazic Thule) went live on May 13, 2015. No word yet about how long zones will be available and when others will kick in.

This armor quest is always available, however the item components required in it only drop from special revamped versions of the given zones. These zones are only available during special events (for instance, EverQuest's 10th anniversary, the Living Legacy events, or more recently, the Hardcore Heritage events).

Level 80 Zones:
Blackburrow: Reinforced Blackburrow
Cazic-Thule: Lost Temple of Cazic-Thule
Estate of Unrest: Greater Unrest
Lower Guk: Darkened Ruins of Old Guk

Level 90 Zones:
Crushbone (Level 90 Revamp)
Permafrost Keep (Level 90 Revamp)

Find Thach Jerden, a gnome in the Plane of Knowledge at location -340, +520, -124.25 (outside the smith building in the southeast of the main section of the zone).

You say, 'Hail, Thach Jerden'

Thach Jerden says 'Greetings, adventurer. Have you perhaps heard of these strange [changes] that have been happening to familiar areas?'

You say, 'What changes?'

Thach Jerden says 'They're very odd. For a brief period suddenly areas that we thought we knew will be transformed. The monsters that used to inhabit them will suddenly gain in strength and abilities, and their [equipment] will be changed as well.'

You say, 'Equipment?'

Thach Jerden says 'Some of them have come into possession of some wonderful [glowing] armors that I find endlessly fascinating, but I have not been able to obtain them on my own.'

You say, 'Glowing?'

Thach Jerden says 'Have you found some? May I have them? I'll offer you a piece of [armor] from my own collection in trade. They're... very, very nice.'

You say, 'What armor?'

Thach Jerden says 'I will match whatever type of armor you bring me. An arm for an arm, you might say. I have several different types of bracers or wristbands, though, so if I give you one that you don't want, hand it back to me and I will exchange it for another that you can use.'

Statless Glowing Othni armor pieces drop from various mobs in the revamped versions of Cazic-Thule and Unrest.

Statless Glowing Athlai armor pieces drop from various mobs in the revamped versions of Blackburrow and Lower Guk.

Statless Glowing Reis armor pieces drop from various mobs in the revamped versions of Crushbone and Permafrost.

You can turn in these items to Thach to receive an armor piece:

Thach Jerden says 'Ahahaha! It glows! This is wonderful, _____. Thank you so much. Here is a matching piece of armor, as promised.

GLOWING ATHLAI (Blackburrow / Lower Guk)

Chain - Gnollish Chain Armor
Leather - Gnollish Leather Armor
Plate - (Darkened) Enameled Black Armor
Silk - (Darkened) Shiny Metallic Armor

GLOWING OTHNI (Cazic Thule / Unrest)

Leather - Restless-Hide Armor
Plate - Lost Rubicite Armor

Happily camping nameds in Perma while zone is in re-vamp mode. Mobs average level 92, nameds about 94.

Armor produced from Reis armor is directly comparable to T3 HoT armor. Comparing the Reis leather chest piece to the T3 HoT ...

AC exactly the same (153), hp's and mana a little bit higher for Reis-produced (20-40 of each), Heroic stats total of 40 for Reis, 43 for T3 HoT, not sure which has the better distribution of heroic stat boots. The T3 HoT does have the clicky on the chest piece, none on Reis. So in all, close enough either way.

Both are another step below T1 (Rustic) VoA gear, as you might expect, which are higher all around and tradeable.

It's weird that there are 4 level 80 zones and 2 level 90. Athlai (Lvl 71, 350ish) and Othni (Lvl 71, 390ish) and Reis (Lvl 85, 1300ish). I wish they would make 3 types of armor Athlai (Level 71, 350ish hp) Othni (Level 80, 750ish hp) and Reis (Level 85, 1300ish hp) and split the zones up accordingly. Leave LGuk and CT at level 80, Make Blackburrow and Unrest level 85, and leave CB and Perma at 90.
Also, to be fair to the little folk, and epic seekers, as well as help out the higher end folk, I think it would be cool to have a Timeshear Portal deep in each of these zones that you could go to any time. Use the same storyline as Oceangreen Hills and such to explain the portals, saying that "timeshear" is causing anomalies in the space-time continuum throughout Norrath. This would open up the option of revamping other zones in the future.
If you want to keep the novelty of the zones changing during certain times, then have the mobs in the higher level zone "break through" the portal and "take over" the future version of their homes for a period of time before the expanded portal collapses to normal and sends them back. You could even key the normal portal with a drop or quest in the high level version(s). Or, if you just want the zones available for a limited time per year, you could add a level restricted timeshear portal just outside the zones that would take you to the high level zones and appear only for a short time.

Just thinkin...

What's the deal with only being able to turn in one wrist piece? Neither item is LORE. I tried turning in 2nd wrist pc. and he says he cannot give me another one since I already have one? wtf? this a /bug? or should it be LORE after u trade glowing in for armor? No clue why you shouldn't be able to have 2 of same wrist, if they're not listed as LORE....?
Forget the past, look towards the future and live for the NOW!

When you turn in the Glowing Reis Wristband you will get only 1 wrist item by default and it is lore. For example, when turning it in for a warrior, you will get Blood-Etched Wristguard, and you have to give it back to him in exchange for Blood-Etched Wristband, hence the "Band" instead of "Guard", you can now proceed to turn in your other Glowing Ries Wristband.

This is listed in the DB - but not on this page in the listed items:

It has Effect: Chromatic Damage 40 L85 aliased as 'Mindshear's Thunder II


Icon Lost Rubicite Plate Bracer
Purity: 50
AC: 63
STR: +19+2 DEX: +17 STA: +19+1 CHA: +17 WIS: +18+1 INT: +17 AGI: +22+3 HP: +396 MANA: +385 ENDUR: +385
Combat Effects: +2 Spell Shield: +1% Avoidance: +3 Accuracy: +2 Strikethrough: +1% DoT Shielding: +1% Attack: +10 HP Regen +2 Mana Regeneration: +3 Clairvoyance: +2 Spell Damage: +2 Heal Amount: +1
Recommended level of 76. Required level of 71.

I had to trade back the bracer 2 times to get to this one with the improved Chromatic damage.

I hope this helps.

I turned in 4 pieces of Glowing Athlai armor (from Reinforced BlackBurrow) using my level 71 rogue. For each piece, Thach Jerden gave the following response after the "give" was completed:

[Mon Jun 01 03:44:40 2009] Targeted (NPC): Thach Jerden
[Mon Jun 01 03:44:40 2009] Right click on the NPC to consider him.
[Mon Jun 01 03:44:42 2009] Thach Jerden says 'Ahahaha! It glows! This is wonderful, __playername__. Thank you so much. Here is a matching piece of armor, as promised.'

Note that the appropriate Gnollish Chain armor piece I obtained appeared directly inside an inventory bag, not on my cursor.

If I ever obtain and turn in a Glowing Othni armor piece (from temporary-revamp Cazic-Thule or Unrest) then I will post the response here, if it has not been done by then.

wristband turn in
# Apr 29 2009 at 11:09 AM Rating: Decent
i turned in 2 wristbands and got the same type both times(othni) so i guess it is random on which ones you get. shame would have liked to get 2 different ones for pois/disease for my necro, and now it no trade, hope they fix that so u can choose or u can at least get different ones on turn in.

If you hand the bracers back into Thach, he'll give you another bracer (different focus). You can keep trading them to him till you get the focus you want.

the glowing Othni armor that drops in CT seems to yield better armor (40-50hp/mana better) than the glowing Athlai that drops in BB. makes sense seeing as the difficulty of CT is a bit higher than BB. the AC on the armor also gets a small bump, however the mod2's look to be exactly the same.
Othni > Athlai

Glowing Othni armor results in Lost Rubicite armor when turned in by a cleric (and i assume also if a WAR PAL SHD or BRD does the hand in).

I turned in a Glowing Athli Wristband and he gave me back a Gnollish Chain Bracer that is identical to the one that dropped in revamped BB last year. I think it would be safe to assume that if a plate class does the turn-in they will receive an Enameled Plate XXXX exactly like what dropped in revamped LGuk last year.

Slot 1 Type 7:
Slot 2 Type 13:

Foci Effect: Severilious` Toxin II
