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".

This task became available on live servers on Wednesday, April 23, 2014, but was then taken offline. It returned on Tuesday, April 29, 2014, and will remain available through to Wednesday, June 11, 2014.

This is an anniversary timed solo task (24-hour timer) introduced with EverQuest's 15th anniversary. It begins with Jimothy the Delicious (click for map image) in the Plane of Knowledge at /location 270, 300 (a little ways southeast of the main bank).

NOTE: This task requires some running around and killing in static (non-instanced) zones. You'll want to leave yourself ample time to finish it before starting it.

- No tasks
- Level 65

NOTE: It is strongly recommended you read up on (and acquire) tradeskill components (listed in a section below) before requesting this task, as some of the components are rare or out-of-the-way to acquire.

Triggering the Task

You say, 'Hail, Maghee Thunderwood'

Maghee Thunderwood sobs, barely able to speak, 'I... love him... but he... doesn't even... NOTICE meeeeeee.'

You say, 'Hail, Jimothy the Delicious'

Jimothy the Delicious says 'Poor Maghee. It crumbles my gingerbread heart to see her in such an unsettled state. She hasn't moved from this spot for hours, perhaps even days. I worry for her well-being. Just look at her, _____! Have you ever seen someone so broken up over a case of [unrequited love]?'

You say, 'Unrequited love?'

Jimothy the Delicious says 'The man she has eyes on has not returned her affections.' Jimothy pauses, dramatically wiping a bead of frosting out of his eye. 'You know, we have to do something. A romantic picnic will bring the poor, deluded dolt around for sure. And sure as I'm standing here, Surefall Glade is clearly the perfect place. So that leaves the task of cooking up a basket of delightful delicacies. Seeing as how this is a serious matter, not any delicacy will do. I've heard of a [certain recipe book]...'

You say, 'A certain recipe book?'

Jimothy the Delicious says 'Yes! 101 Delicious Recipes. The esteemed Maelin, head librarian of Knowledge, will know where to find it. I must stay here to comfort Maghee. If you're [half as sweet] as I am, you'll [lend a matchmaking hand].'

You say, 'Half as sweet?'

Jimothy the Delicious shrugs, flecks of sugar shedding from his shoulders, 'I can't help but be sweet. It's in my nature.'

You say, 'I'll lend a matchmaking hand...'

Jimothy the Delicious says 'Splendelicious! See to Maelin at once and ask him to retrieve 101 Delicious Recipes from the stacks. Meanwhile, I'll [stay here and comfort] Maghee.'

You have been assigned the task 'Magically Delicious'.

Maghee Thunderwood needs to catch the attention of the man she adores! A strange gingerbread gentleman with a sweet disposition who goes by Jimothy the Delicious has enlisted your help.

You say, 'You stay here and comfort her...'

Jimothy the Delicious shrugs, flecks of sugar shedding from his shoulders, 'I can't help but be sweet. It's in my nature.'



Speak to Grand Librarian Maelin 0/1 (Plane of Knowledge)

Task Window Says: Speak to Grand Librarian Maelin in the pinnacle of the Plane of Knowledge library about a book titled 101 Delicious Recipes.

You say, 'Hail, Grand Librarian Maelin'

Grand Librarian Maelin says 'I do know where the recipe book is and you're welcome to it. Well, you're welcome to what's left. Many of the pages have been [borrowed].'

You say, 'Borrowed?'

Grand Librarian Maelin says 'Unfortunately for you, many pages of the recipe book you seek have been borrowed. Over time, subsequently, they were scattered about to different realities and locales across Norrath. But fortunately for you, I know where to find them: [Dreadspire Keep], the [House of Thule Library], and [Erudin Burning]. The animated tomes in these places will have the missing pages of 101 Delicious Recipes, and they won't [give them back willingly]. I can teleport you to each of these locations; just say the word.'



Defeat tomes to recover Recipe Pages (Bloodstained) 0/5 (Dreadspire Keep)

Defeat tomes to recover Recipe Pages (Smudged) 0/5 (The Library)

Defeat tomes to recover Recipe Pages (Singed) 0/5 (Erudin Burning)

Task Window Says: Grand Librarian Maelin gave you 101 Delicious Recipes, but many pages were missing. Animated tomes in several out-of-the-way libraries have the pages and they won't give them up without a fight.

Grand Librarian Maelin will port you to the mentioned zones if you ask him to.

You say, 'Send me to Dreadspire Keep'

Grand Librarian Maelin says 'Say hello to Mayong's underlings for me, and don't forget: the tomes in the library have the missing recipe pages you'll need!'

You port into Dreadspire Keep in front of a large door. Click on it to port over to the Keep, then head north until you come to the ballroom. The library is located east of the ballroom. Kill tomes in the library of Dreadspire until you get all five updates.

You say, 'Send me to the House of Thule Library'

Grand Librarian Maelin says 'There isn't a whole lot to see or do in the Thule library, so you shouldn't be distracted from your task. Don't forget: the tomes have the missing recipe pages you'll need!'

In The Library are several tome mobs. Kill animated books (scattered throughout the entire zone) until you've gotten five updates.

You say, 'Send me to Erudin Burning'

Grand Librarian Maelin says 'Watch out for agitated erudites, and flames, and paper cuts. Mark my words, paper cuts are the worst. Don't forget: the tomes in the library have the missing recipe pages you'll need!'

In Erudin Burning, kill tomes (found in and around the library in the far southern part of the zone) until you've gotten your five updates.



Speak to Jimothy the Delicious 0/1 (Plane of Knowledge)

Task Window Says: Jimothy the Delicious will want to see the completed 101 Delicious Recipes.

You say, 'Hail, Jimothy the Delicious'

Jimothy the Delicious gasps, 'You recovered the missing pages of 101 Delicious Recipes! Now let me have a look.' He rips the recipe book from your pack and flips through it excitedly. You can't help but notice how his clumsy gingerbread hands deposit crumbs between the pages. 'Yes, yes, YES. Here are two surefire candidates: cookies and a tasty tonic guaranteed to satisfy even the sweetest teeth. They will make for memorable picnic fare. I've jotted down the recipes in your journal. They won't require much skill on your part, but you will need to locate the appropriate ingredients.'

it is important to note that you do not lose the items, she hands them back to you when Jimothy spawns. I molo'd him down, was dark blue to a 105 pally.
He does have quite a bit of HP, it took 5 min to kill him with a 105 maxed wizzy merc on full burn.

Thanks, updated the quest text accordingly.
Bonus item: don't give up.
# Mar 30 2017 at 3:15 PM Rating: Good
How I did it:
When I spawned Jimothy for the bonus item, he killed me.
After running back and rebuffing I was unable to spawn him again so I just finished the quest.
Then I noticed Jimothy was still standing nearby (and still had my corpse targeted), so I went ahead and fought him again. This time I won and looted Jimothy Junior.

I completed the quest on my level 101 Mage. For the fight with Jimothy, I had my merc and four level 105 friends. Jimothy was yellow to me, so he isn't capped at 100.

he hits up to 16,791 on me ( ac 15000) and has a tremendous amount of hp. was a 20 minute fight with me and my merc and I forgot to turn logs on. was a wizzie merc on burn. ( wizzie died early and I ended up reviving him). I was able to fade and respawn merc because jimmy ran off and stayed damaged long enough for me to re-engage ( luckily). clerics just don't have very good dps

# May 09 2014 at 12:15 PM Rating: Decent
I can confirm, the Bonus step is a ONE-SHOT only. So if you fail because Jimothy killed you instead of vice versa, you messed it up (maybe) forever.
No idea if there's some sort of reverse quest, dialogue or something else to clean it up for another try if you don't have the bonus item.

I could only make Jimothy spawn once "on the first quest attempt"! the second time
there was a yellow text saying Jimothy would not fall for it again, or simular
.

Yellow message: Only the person that spawned Jimothy the Delicious can loot Jimothy Junior

I was planning on doing it again for the drop, for my alt. But couldn't, which means
there is a flag after making Jimothy spawn. Completing it without the kill turn-in worked fine.

Tried the combine on (100)-Wiz at (25)-TS in Brew and Baking and got the message
that he was not able to combine at the skill level, or something like that.

I don't know how you can check to see if you can do the quest combines
but I suggest gathering extra ingredients for at least one attempt of the recipes
beforehand, to be sure you can complete it. Otherwise you'll waste your time like
I did. the Exp was good though, during the kill phase.

this is a solo task, but everyone in the group gets updated on a kill.
merge groups whenever possible.

unfortunately the zones are crowded and it is hard to get a tome to kill so having a time limit on it is not the best idea.

The updates for the Pages from Dreadspire, House of Thule Library and Erudin Burning are random, no need to actually loot any pages. You will see a yellow emote and the task will update. In Dreadspire the respawn time was approx. 15mins. In Erudin Burning, the tomes on the first and second floors of the Library seemed to give the fastest updates. Updates on the roof were rare, although the spawn time was faster.

Once you arrive in Surefall, if you want to get the familiar, first hand all three items at the same time, the Cookie, the Sweetwater, and the Bouquet, to Maghee Thunderwood (The Forlorn Druid). She is standing next to Bemienn Grinrain. She will hand all three items back to you, and Jimothy the Delicious will spawn immediately a short way away and run toward the NPC's. You loot the familiar from his corpse. You then hand in the three items, one at a time to Bemienn Grinrain to finish the quest and receive the commemorative coins.

As has been mentioned, if doing this task for more than one person at the same time, only one person at a time should do the above sequence of hand-ins and complete the quest before a second person does their hand ins to avoid dealing with multiple homicidal, yellow-con cookies. ;)

I also spent nearly an hour on the top floor of burning erudin without a single update when I moved down to the 2 lower floors I got all 8 in 30 mins, I just handed in all 3 items at once lol :p didn't run into any problems, soloed jimothy with a 100 mage and cleric merc no problems, he just tanks nothing else, alot of hp merc was down to 50% mana at end, took about 3-4 mins using all my mana, as stated trick is to just plan ahead make sure you have everything you need before you start, actually enjoyed doing this and nice original familiar to have

Do NOT fail the fight with Jimothy in Surefall for the bonus reward. If you do, you can not rehand in the items to the druid for him to respawn. Even if you redo the quest from scratch, she still will not accept them.
Jimothy Remains Up if You Die

Jimothy does not despawn right away if you die. You can call in re-reinforcements if necessary to kill him.

Check to make sure that someone didn't leave one from a previous attempt before doing your hand-in or you'll end up with two of them as previously mentioned. You won't be able to loot anything from that one, it'll give you the message: You can't loot it, you didn't spawn it.

I failed on the fight, but when reinforcements showed up he was still there. We just had to rebuff and aggro him for the win. You loot the familiar off the corpse.

When you give the items to Bemienn Grinrain you have to do one at a time, otherwise he gives them back and only responds to the first one you handed him, which he keeps.

I also found that the pages only showed up on the tomes on the lower floors of the library and not the roof.

Just finished this.. couple of things..make sure you gather all the items first as sometimes foraging can be the hardest part. When you hand in the 3 items to Bemienn Grinrain, hand them in one at a time. He gives them back so you can re-hand in. To get the blood flowers, you need Kael faction to buy from Bjorak Stonefist. Got 6AA's at lvl 95 for doing this. I handed into the female druid all at once. Mob that spawns is not snareable. One other note. Jimothy Junior familiar you need to be lvl 100 to use.

Couple of quick tips.

A few quick notes to make it slightly easier.

If Grand Librarian Maelin ports you to the zones you are ported directly near the areas where you can kill the books. You can avoid the long runs and scary tunnel with mixed mobs nearby.

If you are on the turn-in part in Surefall Glade look around to check if Jimothy is on track. If you are in a group and you want the familiar you need to make sure do each hand in separately and kill him each time. Two or more spawned homicidal yellow con cookies are not fun. I don't know if they are mezzable/snareable. While this is a solo task, going for the familiar does require you to have a group. He is one tough cookie!

The books in Erudin Burning on the rooftop of the library do spawn faster but as far as I could tell they give the updates much less infrequently or not at all. It was kind of hard to tell because we were pulling to the middle floor but we probably killed up there for over 45 minutes without one single update. It wasn't until we moved back downstairs that we started to get the updates again.

And yes, as a person who has the Gumdrop Illusion with a couple of cookie mercenaries, I look forward to a herd of cookies running around=)

Before you give the 3 items to Bemienn Grinrain give them to the druid next to him first. She gets all excited and Jimothy comes at you from behind. I didn't parse the fight, but I had full burn going on bard, ranger, and zerker. Fight took probably 3 mins. I'd guess 8m-10m hp. Had no special abilities easy tank and spank.

Familiar is a mini gingerbread man. Gumdrop Button owners with a gingerbread merc will go nuts :).
