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 a task introduced with EverQuest's 11th anniversary (and expected to be available only during anniversary season). There are versions of this task for players of every level.

The tasks are all set up in the same manner:

Deliver 10 (item a) to (npc) 0/10 (Zone)
Deliver 1 (item b) to (npc) 0/1 (Zone)
Speak with (npc) 0/1 (Zone)

In addition to the aug rewards listed below, you also receive experience and a positive faction hit with any of the (useful) factions from the Dragons of Norrath expansion and onward.

You must be at least the required level of the aug in order to request the corresponding task.

I COULD request it at level 94.

I wonder if there is a new guy out there somewhere in one of the HoT or VoA zones for the level 95 version of this quest, or if it was overlooked (more likely).

I was able to request this at 95.

However I was grouped with a level 85 so perhaps that was it. I did not try getting it solo

You now have a choice of rewards for the Level 5 quest.

Fenworth Iceflinger tells you, 'It's about time you returned. I think my feet are permanently frozen now. I suppose I can forgive you for being so late since you fetched those items for me. Hopefully Karl will like these.

You can improve your faction with the Blacksail Smugglers, Combine Empire Merchants, Cirtain - Bayle's Herald, Silla Herald, Tynoc - Herald of Scale, Mitius - Herald of Change, Herald Argoth, Herald of Druzzil Ro, Bertoxxulous's Chosen, Camp Valor, Ladies of the Light, Crusaders of Veeshan, Brownie Rebels, Ak'Anon Strike Force V, Fang Breakers, Norrath's Keepers, the Dark Reign, Crusade of the Scale, Scholars of Solusek, Infiltrators and Traitors of Ashengate, the Wraithguard, or the Wraithguard Leadership.

Norten, in Brells rest, will not give the text telling you what the trigger word for the quest is if you are level 90 already (he simply says to ask his associates for something harder). However, saying "I am willing" will give you the quest and does accept the turn in(s) and give a reward.

You must be at least the req level for the aug in order to get the above tasks, i.e. you can get the task level 75 quest at 70 (the maximum Shroud lvl btw) the req lvl for the Shard of Ruby and can be up to lvl 79, but anything lower bumps you down to the lvl 65 quest and Lvl 80 or higher bumps you up to the 85 quest.

You can use the Shroud ability to get as many of the quests as you like, however after completing any one of the quests there's an 18 hour lockout before you can request another. So you can request all the quests by shrouding to the appropriate lvl and getting them all at once before working on completing them, thus getting all the augs one after the other as you complete the quests you received, but if you were to request one quest and complete that one quest before getting any of the others you are unable to request any of the other quests for 18 hours.

All of these quests are of a similar format;

Step 1- Deliver 10 of "-------" (These always come from the zone the quest giver is located in, except in the case of the 85 aug)
Step 2- Deliver 1 of "------"
Step 3- Hail the quest giver and receive reward

The reward is the Aug, Experience, and an faction hit with several actually useful factions across Norrath associated with various expansions (listed at the bottom)

This is for the lower level version which rewards the Eleventh Shard of Ruby.

Given out by Myrton Lightningflinger who stands just slightly north of the portal in from the Void in Oceangreen Hills. I got this quest shrouded down to level 70.

Items should be prelootable as the task only calls for them to be turned in.
Wants 10 Conjurer Stones dropped from a girplan conjurer (seemed to be 100% drop rate) in the basement of Riftseekers & 1 Anvil of Evil dropped by an evil blacksmith in Bertox's Temple (killed 2 to get it).
