|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|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 an anniversary group mission introduced with EverQuest's 14th anniversary. It begins with "a bellikos inquirer" in the Convorteum. To spawn this mob, head into the pyramid and find "a failed creation" roaming on the ramps in between floors. Loot "Roughly Printed Note" from its corpse, at which point the bellikos spawns.
a bellikos inquirer says 'Ah, you have killed the creature. In a way you have done me a favor. But you have also destroyed a tool that I have need of. Perhaps I can induce you to make up for this by [helping] me continue my investigation.'
You say, 'Helping?'
a bellikos inquirer says 'This pathetic creature was part of some sort of plot, and I have taken it upon myself to discover what that plot is. I can keep my eyes on things, but I can't interact with any of those that are complicit for fear of alerting them to my presence. Well, proving to them that I am aware of their activities. I need you to [seek] out this cohort of treachery and discover their plans. Or will you foolishly attempt to [interfere] with my work.'
Note: Saying "interfere" leads to this task. Saying "seek" leads to a different task.
You say, 'I am here to interfere!'
a bellikos inquirer says 'Foolish, really.'
You have been assigned the task 'To Thine Own Creator Be False'.
The note implies that there is some sort of conflict in the Convorteum. Perhaps you can learn something by getting involved.
Kill 1 Bellikos Inquirer 0/1 (The Convorteum)
Task Window Says: You will need to kill the witness to what you have done.
She hits for a max ~5,000 and flurries.
You have slain a bellikos inquirer!
a bellikos inquirer's corpse seems to glare with defiance as it falls.
Find the failed creation's contact among the failed creations 0/1 (The Convorteum)
Task Window Says: Talk to the failed creation that the messenger was meant to talk to. You may learn something useful.
Find a non-KOS "a failed creation" at location 60, 770, -75 (near the zone-in, off the side of the ramp - little ways southeast of Bergolos). Note: It does not respond to hails.
You say, 'Tell me about your position'
a failed creation says 'What is position you mean? Why you talk to me?'
You say, 'I have been sent'
a failed creation says 'Oh, that one said you talk to me? We be in position, he not worry. Big boss tell me to send that one to him when me see. You here, me [send] you instead.'
You say, 'Send me'
a failed creation crushes a small purple crystal and throws the dust on you, while your eyes are furiously blinking the stinging dust from your eyes, you feel your position shift.
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered The Convorteum.
You enter an instanced version of the zone.
Speak with The Gatekeeper 0/1 (The Convorteum)
Task Window Says: Speak with whoever the failed creation calls The Boss. If you can convince whoever it is that you are willing to help, perhaps you can cause some harm to the social structure in the Convorteum.
The Gatekeeper is found a little ways southeast from the zone-in (location -85, 665, -78).
You say, 'Hail, The Gatekeeper'
The Gatekeeper says 'You are not who I was expecting. But I know your kind have been battling the First Creation since you arrived here. And I have little choice now that my allies have sent you here. You know enough to cause my plans to be ruined. I am in need of assistance from someone that won't be associated with me, so perhaps this can work to our [advantage].'
You say, 'Our advantage?'
The Gatekeeper says 'I need someone to cause a distraction and then transport a teleportation device into the base of the pyramid and protect it until I can activate it. I'm a bit too large to use the normal passageways. It's not my fault, I'm just built this way. Once you've distracted them with the greken, take the crystal to the eastern-most side room above the temple. You may find a few of my other servants there, though I don't think they will be of any help to you.'
You receive 3x "Crushed Fear Shard" and 1x "Teleportation Crystal".
Deliver 2 Crushed Fear Shard to Greken 0/2 (The Convorteum)
Task Window Says: To distract the First Creation's defenses, you have been asked to feed some of the fear crystals to the young greken. This should cause them to do something unusual, at the very least.
Find the grekens in the southern-most part of the zone (marked on compass). Give the fear shard to the two hatchlings at -1860, 500.
Get to the eastern-most chamber in the base of the pyramid and guard the crystal you were given 0/1 (The Convorteum)
Task Window Says: Get the fear shard and the teleportation trigger into the main room of the pyramid while the usual minions have been tricked out of the room. Once you do, use the trigger and bring the enormous Gatekeeper into the room.
As the pyramid is inverted, you'll need to head all the way to the top to get to its base. There, head into the east room (location -1245, 655, 1050).
You'll see six mobs lying on the ground:
Wyora The Troublemaker
Upon approaching them, this step updates and you'll have a few waves of mobs to contend with.
Survive until the Gatekeeper can teleport into the room 0/1 (The Convorteum)
Task Window Says: It looks as though the few minions that remain near the First are not interested in fighting against the huge Gatekeeper, so they have decided to kill you.
Waves appear in timed intervals (generally enough time to kill the previous):
- 1x "an apexus guardian"
- 2x "a crystalline worker
- 1x "a bellikos reviler" + 2x "a lava brute"
- 2x "a telmiran worker"
In melee abilities, these mobs are typical Convorteum trash mobs. Some of them have special abilities: Apexus guardians cast "Stone Punch" (knockback + nuke for 20,000). Lava brutes buff themselves with "Lava Flow" (200-pt damage shield + spell reflect). Telmiran workers cast "Curse of Water" (DOT for 11,700 per tick, fully mitigated).
Note: If you take too long to kill the mobs, the task fails:
The First Creation shouts 'Well done. You have kept the intruders occupied while I was busy. I do not care why you are here, upworlders. I banish you from my realm.'
You have failed the task by not clearing out the defenders before the First Creation arrived.
Your shared task, 'To Thine Own Creator Be False', has ended.
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
If instead you kill them in time, wait a bit, then The First Creation ports up.
The First Creation shouts 'Let us see who is behind this foolishness. I shall allow your device to function.' The teleportation device glows for a moment, then goes dark. The Gatekeeper appears near the First Creation in the center of the room.
The First Creation shouts ‘Hah! It really is that simple! The First Creation swings one of its misshapen arms, striking the crystal club in the Gatekeeper’s hand. The crystal shatters, falling to the ground with musical notes.
The Gatekeeper shouts ‘What? Master? I done something bad?' The great golem hangs its head like a beaten puppy.
The task updates.
Flee before the First Creation decides to notice that you are still alive. 0/1 (The Convorteum)
Run back out of the room and back down towards the entrance of the temple. After you get a couple turns down the hallway, the task updates.
Deliver 1 Teleportation Crystal to the telmira rootcaller 0/1 (The Convorteum)
Run back down through the temple. Drop down to the statue in the lava and proceed to the Northwest edge of the lava pool (-224, 1473, -70). Hand the Teleportation Crystal to ‘a telmira rootcaller’.
The task updates.
