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 12th anniversary (and expected to be available only during anniversary season)

It begins with Seeker Nerattan, a high elf who roams around the vendor building in the Sunrise Hills.

You say, 'Hail, Seeker Nerattan'

Seeker Nerattan sighs, obviously displeased with something, 'Have you seen them? ... No, I suppose you wouldn't, or couldn't have. Dastardly constructs of that cursed Maiden, if only the Burning Prince could exact swift revenge on them... Perhaps you could [assist] me in my endeavors here today?'

You say, 'I will assist you.'

Seeker Nerattan nods, his mood slightly elevated by your willingness to speak with him, 'The miserable [mortal enemies] of the temple set upon me as I was transporting a number of relics back from various planes on Norrath. Now I face the prospect of returning to Tazgar empty handed...'

You say, 'Mortal enemies?'

Seeker Nerattan nods. His face becomes contorted with an expression of bitter hatred, 'Blasted shadowed men, everywhere and nowhere at once! It is not as if exacting my revenge on them takes precedence over returning the relics to our temple though. If you are [willing] to assist me in retrieving the relics, I would be most grateful.'

You say, 'I am willing.'

Seeker Nerattan says 'Very well, I expect most of the artifacts to be strewn about somewhere in the neighborhood. There may be more than one of each type, but as long as I return to Tazgar with at least one complete set I should be okay.'

You have been assigned the task 'Hunt of the Shards'.

The items you need to collect are ground spawns around the Sunrise Hills zone. At least some of them are known to share spawn tables, so you may have to go to some locations multiple times to get all the items you need.



Known spawn locations (copy into your "neighborhood.txt" mapfile):

Flavor Text

If you hail him again after having completed the task:

You say, 'Hail, Seeker Nerattan'

Seeker Nerattan says 'Greetings again _____. May the fires of the Burning Prince light your path and keep you from all ills of the darkness. I cannot wholly express the depths of my gratitude for your service in recollecting our prized artifacts. Tazgar will be most pleased.'

If he's been recently helped, he has alternate hail text for someone else requesting the task. In this case, his response to the hail is happier, and he mentions the name of the person who helped when the new person offers to [assist]:

You say, 'Hail, Seeker Nerattan'

Seeker Nerattan smiles and bows, the flames around him burning brightly, 'Greetings to you adventurer. I hope all is well for you today. Perhaps you could [assist] me with a small favor? If you're not too busy that is.'

You say, 'I will assist you.'

Seeker Nerattan says 'Very good then, _____ just recently helped me retrieve most of my artifacts, but there are a number still missing. You see, I was set upon by the [minions of shadow] while transporting a number of relics exhumed from various locations on Norrath. The blasted creatures took it upon themselves to not only steal away all of the relics in my possession, but to scatter them about randomly here in the hills.'
