EverQuest anniversary events run each year from March to mid-April (sometimes extended to mid-May).

The Mechanical Fortune Teller in the Plane of Knowledge (only spawns while anniversary events are active) will direct you to which NPCs start which quests/missions.

For EverQuest's 15th anniversary, previous years' content will be released weekly. Content from 2004-2008 arrived on live servers on Wednesday, February 26, 2014. While future dates haven't been officially announced, it sounds like we'll see the rest of previous years' content released on March 5 and March 12, with new content coming some time very soon after that (again, this is not official).

Among the rewards for the 15th anniversary group missions are Commemorative Coins. These Coins are a currency used to buy items from "a jubilant merchant" (click for map image), found in the northernmost tent in the neutral district (close to The Nexus portal stone).

Also released for EverQuest's 15th anniversary (and 12 years in the making) was the Plane of War - released on April 2, 2014, as a permanent addition to the Planes of Power expansion. This is a challenging Level 100 zone accessed through the Plane of Tranquility (named mobs in the plane are intended to require 1-2 groups of Level 100 players to take down).

A mission and raid involving the Plane of War are expected to go live on Wednesday, May 7, 2014.

In addition to all of the above, two new race/class combinations made their debut on March 12, 2014, after a series of tournament-structured player votes throughout December 2013 and January 2014. The Wood Elf Beastlord beat out seven other race/class combinations and was announced along with the Froglok Monk as making their debut with EverQuest's 15th anniversary.

Staggered Start/End dates for 15th Anniversary Schedule

7:30 CST on Xegony -- Anniversary missions have ended.

No NPCs in PoK remain.

Speculation abroad on our server that the 3 14th Anniversary missions that were broken are the only missions still active...I cannot confirm this.

At any rate, I could have sworn I read multiple places that *all* anniversary missions would be extended to May 27th.

Oh well.

Anniversary Down... (ahead of schedule??) =(

Yeah, I hear ya...there are a bunch of angry people that were under the same impression on The Rathe/ Prexus server..mostly those who couldn't get their last drop (s) for "Maximum Capacity". Long wait to finish a task indeed. If SOE spent more time focusing on debugging quests/ events before initiating them, and less time worrying about pre-sales for SOE live, maybe more people could have enjoyed the content of this year's anniversary quests instead of SOE doing multiple repatches..just my 2 cp. I always enjoy hunting Fabled Mobs of all levels from Antonica to the Planes. Looking forward to Hardcore Heritage in another month or 2..if they choose to do the revamps again as they usually do.
To Thine Own Creator Be False unique rewards update

Most of these can be killed by a solo level 25 - 30 range with a merc and a good understanding of how to kill mobs.

Hmmmmm

If you only have lower level chars, nothing here other than time wasters.

You might want to look at the 11th Anniversary 'Gifts of Steel' quests more closely.
