Tipsy Teena says, 'Greetings, Gnome! It looks like you're here for the naked newbie gnome race to celebrate EverQuest's anniversary. Keep an eye out for broadcasts indicating when the race will begin. When we get close to starting, stay close to me inside Ak'Anon near the exit to the Steamfont Mountains and wait for the signal.'

This is an anniversary event that runs for 6 weeks, and the race is held 4 times per day. Race times are as follows, and are always based on Pacific timezone...
Sunday: 3 AM, 9 AM, 3 PM, 9 PM
Monday: 3 AM, 9 AM, 3 PM, 9 PM
Tuesday: 12 AM, 6 AM, 12 PM, 6 PM
Wednesday: 3 AM, 9 AM, 3 PM, 9 PM
Thursday: 12 AM, 6 AM, 12 PM, 6 PM
Friday: 3 AM, 9 AM, 3 PM, 9 PM
Saturday: 12 AM, 6 AM, 12 PM, 6 PM

To participate in the race, your character must be a level 1 gnome. You find Tipsy Teena in Ak'Anon, near the Steamfont Mountains zoneline. Hail her after the race has begun to become a participant. Hailing Teena causes your character to become flagged for PvP so that you cannot be buffed by other players, will also make you drunk, removes any movement speed enhancing buffs you may have, and binds your soul to the area. You will race across several zones to find where Tipsy Teena is located in each one. When you find and hail Teena, she will fling you towards the next zone where you will need to find her. Tipsy Teena is available in the Find list of any zone she is in.

The zones where the race is held always follows a specific order, but the location where you need to find Teena will change with each version of the race. If you die during the race, you will respawn at the most recent Tipsy Teena you hailed. The final hail to finish the race is done at Dibster `Dibs` Biroboddle.

Tipsy Teena says, 'Stumble towards Dagnor's Cauldron. When you get there, head to the adventurer's camp northwest of the cauldron. You will find me consorting with the adventurers.

Tipsy Teena says, 'Stumble towards Dagnor's Cauldron. When you get there, head to the aqua goblin camp southwest of the cauldron. You will find me warming myself at the aqua goblin camp.

Tipsy Teena says, 'This is your final task. Make it to the basement of the Estate of Unrest, and speak to Dibs 'Dibster' Biroboddle before the undead horrors take you, if you can!'

Dibster `Dibs` Biroboddle says, 'Well done, my tipsy little friend! You are one of the first of my brethren to reach me, so allow me to offer you your choice of any one piece of Tipsy Gnomework Hero's Forge. Congratulations! In addition, everyone who completes the race gets a commemorative one-size-fits-all cloth shirt. Wear it with pride, as just having one on is quite an achievement. Hope to see you in the race again next time!'


The first 10 participants to hail Dibster get their pick of 1 Tipsy Gnomework ornamentation of their choosing. All participants that complete the race get a Tipsy Gnome Gnome Race Cloth Shirt, which will grant you the 17th Anniversary Event achievement upon equipping. You have one hour to complete the race from start time to finish.
SYSTEMWIDE_MESSAGE:The tipsy gnome race is over. If you missed this one, we hope you'll join us next time!

You can only participate once per character per race. Attempting to run the same race again with the same character results in:
Tipsy Teena says, 'Well, well, well! It looks like you've already completed this particular race. Or... something has gone terribly wrong with my steam-activated version tracker. In either case, please wait until the next race or begin again in Ak'Anon by re-entering with a fresh contestant!'

Attempts to skip directly to the end of the race at Dibster or hailing the wrong version of Teena results in a banishment to the last completed checkpoint or the starting line of the race:
Looks like you've skipped ahead. Tsk tsk. Back you go!

Isn't the Clockwork Plate from Marketplace, and not this quest? Anyone verify?

Correct. Clockwork ornament sets are only available from the Marketplace. I've removed them as rewards (and also updated the quest).
Getting back to Ak`Anon

So, after you complete this quest once to get your first piece of Clockwork gear, it seems like you have to walk aaaall the way back to Ak`Anon to start it all over. Or am I missing something? I've tried dying, but once you start the Estate of Unrest portion, you get bound in Unrest. The best solution I can find is to log out for X minutes and then click the "Return Home" button.

Does anyone know a better solution?

I just stay by the last hail - Dibster - till a mob repops and kills me which sends me back to Teena at the entrance to Unrest and when hailing her she sends me back to Ak'Anon. I camp there. When its announced again I log in and hail and am on my way. If I claim any of the reward armor it seems to break it and she just repeats I have already done it and won't allow me to do it again. So at that point I just make a new gnome.

It looks like the pieces are tradeable so perhaps you can put them in the shared bank and create a new gnome?

If you are making a gnome to enter the race, you can skip the tutorial by making sure the Tutorial button is not selected before clicking on enter world.
Rules for creating your gnome for the race?

1. Are there any time restrictions on when your gnome is created? ie: can any level 1 gnome be used or does it have to be created the day of the race?
2. I made a gnome and put Ak'Anon as my start point but still got pushed into the tutorial. Is this avoidable or do I have to start the tutorial and get out and over to Ak'Anon before I level?
3. Are the competitors restricted to only having the items they start with as new made gnomes: @ the start of the race?; during the race?; @ the end of the race?
4. If the gnome is allowed to be made ahead of time, is skill training permitted as long as level 1 is not exceeded?

I'm sure there are more questions to ask, but I'm decaffeinated at the moment.

Thanks, Ewor.

1. No time restrictions that I found. I created one the day of the race when the announcement was made (very stressful trying to get out of tutorial in time ) and then made a second one ahead of time but then found they are reusable. Noticed a lot of the same gnomes camping in and out over the days it is running. So once your out of tutorial you may want to consider that option.

2. To get out of tutorial fast just go to Arias and say "ready to leave" or "I am ready to leave" - I forget which - and that will port you to pok.

3. No restrictions on buff or armor or weapons.

4. have not used my gnome for anything but the race but I don't see why not.

Consider this: your little gnome will be drunk, stinking drunk and it slowly wears off as the further you get in the race. There is no way to get your alcohol tolerance high enough as the drunken buff is cast on you at each check in point and is not affected by skill ups in drinking. You cannot remove this buff either. Just makes you walk funny really.

The gnome races ran from March 16th to May 10th this year so the race won't be available until next anniversary.
