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 shared task (1-6 players) introduced with EverQuest's 13th anniversary. It's expected to only be available during anniversary season (mid-March through mid-April).

It begins with Sam Napth, a Halfling in the Plane of Knowledge at about -215, -90, -155 (next to the Soulbinder).

You say, 'Hail, Sam Napth'

Sam Napth says 'I've been expecting you. I have great need of adventurers to help me deal with an important issue. There are a lot of tasks that need doing, I'd be grateful if you could help me out. You see, I've been trying to prove to some important people that such things are foolishness. So I've arranged some tests to prove it.'

A task window pops up offering several anniversary tasks.

You have been assigned the task 'Breaking Mirrors'.

Sam Napth wants you to find out if breaking mirrors really causes bad luck.



Speak with Sam Napth 0/1 (Plane of Knowledge)

You say, 'Hail, Sam Napth'

Sam Napth says 'Listen to this nonsense; I recently overheard that if you break a mirror, you will have bad luck for several years. You and I are too smart to believe such a thing, but there is only one way to prove this as nothing more than a myth. Are you interested in [proving] some ninnies wrong?'

The task locks here.

You say, 'Proving them wrong?'

Sam Napth says 'I knew you would help out'. Sam takes a small sphere of glass from his pocket and throws it onto the ground. It shatters into hundreds of tiny shards of glass. 'You will be entering one of these shards of glass. Think of it as a mini-dimension. Find some mirrors and collect some shards of broken glass, then return them to me. Are you ready to [go]?'

You say, 'Ready to go!'

Sam Napth teleports you into one of the tiny shards of glass.

LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered Jewel of Atiiki.

Mobs in this instance hit for a max ~7,600. All or most are mezzable and stunnable. Note that the soul gazers (evil eye models) are Enchanters and can cast debuffs that inhibit stats on your tank.

Enter the portal in front of you to begin your search for the mirrors 0/1 (Jewel of Atiiki)

Step into the portal.

Find the first mirror and break it 0/1 (Jewel of Atiiki)

The first mirror is in a large room at -865, 700, -445 (one floor down from the port-in spot). Touch the mirror for the update and be ready for a mob spawn ("a broken glass golem"; mezzable/stunnable)

Loot the broken shards of glass from the broken glass golem's corpse 0/1 (Jewel of Atiiki)

Find the second mirror and break it 0/1 (Jewel of Atiiki)

Step into the portal to port over to the next location. Head in the same direction you're facing after porting through and up one floor (should only be 2-3 mobs in your path between the port-in point and the next mirror).

Loot the broken shards of glass from the broken glass golem's corpse 0/1 (Jewel of Atiiki)

Find the third mirror and break it 0/1 (Jewel of Atiiki)

Port over and find the third mirror in the east-central room of the bottom floor (1055, -325, -475).

Loot the broken shards of glass from the broken glass golem's corpse 0/1 (Jewel of Atiiki)

Find the fourth mirror and break it 0/1 (Jewel of Atiiki)

Port over and find the fourth mirror on the bottom floor of this area (largest room of the bottom floor).

Loot the broken shards of glass from the broken glass golem's corpse 0/1 (Jewel of Atiiki)

Find the fifth mirror and break it 0/1 (Jewel of Atiiki)

Port over and find the fifth mirror on the bottom floor of this area (east-central room).

Loot the broken shards of glass from the broken glass golem's corpse 0/1 (Jewel of Atiiki)

Find the sixth mirror and break it 0/1 (Jewel of Atiiki)

Port over and find the sixth mirror at the bottom of the ramp of this area.

Loot the broken shards of glass from the Essence of Misfortune's corpse 0/1 (Jewel of Atiiki)

Give the broken shards of glass to Sam Napth 0/6 (Plane of Knowledge)

Take the portal to zone out.

Speak to Sam Napth 0/1 (Plane of Knowledge)

You say, 'Hail, Sam Napth'

Sam Napth says 'I can feel the bad luck oozing from these shards of broken glass, and from you for that matter. I guess the myth was true after all. If I were you, I would avoid any high-stakes gambling for a while. Don't worry though; the bad luck should go away after several years.'

Soulgazers in here can cast splintered consciousness, A nasty debuff that with a merc tank is best to wait it out before pulling the next mobs.

Been trying for a week to break the first mirror and assumed it must be bugged, but no one on my server could confirm it.

Same here, after trying everything I could think of. I asked on .genchat and I was told it is bugged.

Be nice if it restricted lower lvls from entering these. Accepted this quest thinking it might be "Fun" on my 83 mage only to find out I stand no chance in **** of doing this... Why let a lvl 83 take this quest if its meant for lvl 90+?

THis task booted me at 3 hours when I hadn't finished, yet (solo paladins not known for their dps) ... but the timer kept going and all the steps reset as if I had finished none of them.

Just an FYI: my Monk was using his Chrono Projection to scout around. He went into the first mirror room and made the mistake of touching the mirror. It broke, and we didn't get quest credit for it. I couldn't figure out any way to get proper credit (touching it once in the room did not work).

Make sure you are in the room when you break the mirror...

You can skip almost every mob with mez blur for a quick win if that floats your boat.

Use invis whenever possible. There are enough see-invis mobs on the ways that have to be killed. All of those can be picked solo.
There are also see-SoS mobs on the way. Rogues cannot bypass all the way.

Overall harder than other anniversary tasks. Doable as a duo with merc healers.

Mirror Shard

Familiar: Shard Golem

I don't see any stat benefits from the familiar, but maybe I'm missing something and it's not just a walking piece of glass
