This is the 22nd Anniversary quest that was leaked out early.

It starts with Sailor Twift in Butcherblock at the docks, on the middle dock on the far west side of the zone. She is obviously a big Taylor Swift fan.

You say, 'Hail, Sailor Twift'

Sailor Twift says, 'Ahoy there! I'm glad you came by when you did Dark Elf, I can really use some help with someone as world travelled as you! I know you can keep a secret too, which is important for what I need your help with. What would you do if I told you there is a lost city filled with riches that we just have to find? What if I told you that it was lost to the ocean long ago? And what if I told you that I have an [ondine] friend who can help us get to it?'

You say, 'An ondine friend?'

Sailor Twift says, 'Aye! You see, I discovered through my time at sea that there is a city made of copper that was washed away by a calamity that happened long ago. I don't suspect to be able to salvage any of the copper, but that doesn't mean that what the denizens had, is no longer there, if you are catching my drift. I know that these ruins have been lost because I have yet to find it in any [history] book.'

You say, 'What history book?'

Sailor Twift beams a wicked smile across her face, 'See, that is where I need your help. There is a library in the Plane of Knowledge...' they pause for a moment and let out a sigh, 'I know, I know, there are several libraries, but this one can be found at the top of the tower where the bookworms study. I need you to go there and look for a specific [book].'

You say, 'What specific book?'

Sailor Twift says, 'Indeed, now, you may ask yourself, 'Why doesn't she just get the book herself?'. Well I'll ask you to mind your own business! Just because I drank too much once night and happened to punch out someone who was giving me the 'ol stink eye. And that someone just so happened to be the Grand Librarian, is none of your business! None of this is going to get either of us rich! However, I need you to get that book, it is titled "Riveting Tales of Rivits". You see, this isn't a history book, it's a [folklore] book.'

You say, 'I will retrieve the folklore book.'

You have been assigned the task 'A Riveting Tale!'.

Sailor Twift says, 'Exactly, that is why most people wrote it off as lost and just a story, but I know it is real! Get that book and bring it to me. Oh and, please do avoid the Grand Librarian, he's probably still a bit sore.'




  1. Locate the book about the City of Rivils in the Plane of Knowledge 0/1 The Plane of Knowledge

    Quest Text: Sailor Twift believes that they have discovered a lost city of copper and needs your help to try and find it. Sailor Twift wants you to locate a specific book in the tallest library in the Plane of Knowledge. Search the bookshelves to find the book.


    Approach the bookshelf next to Grand Librarian Maelin on his right side. This will update there and put the item 'Riveting Tales of Rivits' on your cursor.

    The book, Riveting tales of Rivits, was found between a book about adopting more primitive lifestyle, and one about essential oils from Halas.

    Your task 'A Riveting Tale' has been updated.



  2. Return to Sailor Twift and give her the book 0/1 Butcherblock Mountains

    Quest Text: That was close but you got the book, return it to Sailor Twift.


    Hand over the book to Sailer Twift back in the Butcherblock Mountains.

    Your task 'A Riveting Tale' has been updated.

    Sailor Twift is elated to see you approach, 'Wonderful!' she exclaims as she flips the pages in the book to a specific section, and tears out a few pages, 'Don't want nobody else finding out about this. You can't be too careful, Dark Elf' She points at her head as if to remind you that she is clever. She takes a moment to actually read what she tore out, 'Anyway, so according to this, there is a key that we need to find in order to even gain entry. This is where I must defer you to my [colleague].

    You say, 'Who is your colleague?'

    Sailor Twift says, 'Her name is Raptured Daffodil and she can be found within the Ocean of Tears. You can get on the next ferry that comes around and ride it to the ocean of tears. There is an island to the northwest, that is where I last saw her. Speak with her and let her know that Sailor Twift sent you.'



  3. Sail to the Ocean of Tears and speak with Raptured Daffodil 0/1 The Ocean of Tears

    Quest Text: Twift's friend, Raptured Daffodil, is waiting for you in the Ocean of Tears. Remember to tell her that Sailor Twift sent you.

    Zone into OOT from the docks in BB, she is below the docks in OOT.

    You say, 'Hail, Raptured Daffodil'

    Raptured Daffodil says, 'Nice to meet you, have you ever been to Loruella? It's absolutely beautiful city! Our seahorse racetrack is a sight to behold!'

    You say, 'Tailor Swift sent me'

    No response...

    You say, 'Sailor Twift sent me'

    Your task 'A Riveting Tale' has been updated.

    Raptured Daffodil gives you a knowing look as you say that name, 'Oh, Twift found someone to help her with her exploration?' She lets out a happy giggle, 'This will be fun! Let us see where this goes! So...' She pauses for a moment to choose her words carefully, 'I have found the key that is needed to enter the riveting city, but I had lost the copper sextant that I found that magically points to where the city is, deep within the ocean. I need it back. I last had it when I was exploring the coast of Erillion, the City of Bronze. I have a theory that these cities are tied together somehow, so I was searching for clues in that area. I bet you one of the braxi picked it up. Maybe cut open a few and see what kind of treasures you find inside.



  4. Find the Copper Sextant outside of Erillion, City of Bronze 0/1 Erillion, City of Bronze

    Quest Text: Raptured Daffodil regrets to inform you that she has lost her copper sextant that was used to locate the city to begin with. She lost it on the shore of Erillion City of Bronze, check the braxi as they may have taken it.


    Kill braxi until a Copper-Lined Sextant drops for each member of your party.

    Your task 'A Riveting Tale' has been updated.



  5. Deliver the Sextant to Raptured Daffodil 0/1 The Ocean of Tears

    Upon turn in of Copper-Lined Sextant:

    Raptured Daffodil looks in shock as you return, 'How did you..." they take a moment to collect themselves before continuing. "You're an adventurer, I should have known better than to have asked you how. Well this is certainly a turn that I did not expect to take today. I will continue trying to chart where the city is. Here's the key. Should anything happen to me during this exploration, I will feel better to know that its being kept for safe keeping. Tell Twift to meet us at our usual spot. She knows where that is.'

    You have been given: Rivits' Riveting Key
    Your task 'A Riveting Tale' has been updated.



  6. Bring Sailor Twift the key 0/1 Butcherblock Mountains

    Upon Turnin of Rivits' Riveting Key:

    Sailor Twift is so excited, she can hardly contain herself, 'Yes!' she yells, before realizing that she was being too loud. She speaks quietly afterwards, 'Yes! This is the key! Which means you got to meet Raptured Daffodil, which means she's willing to help us find this place! And you say she is out mapping where to find it? Everything is starting to fall into place! Well, she is going to take a while to find that, so we will need to keep the key safe someplace.' Luckily, while you were gone, I took the time to fashion a fake book to put in this book's place.' They struggle to place the key in the book for a moment before giving up, 'Would you mind?'

    Your task 'A Riveting Tale' has been updated.
    You receive Routed Out Riveting Tales of Rivits
    You receive Rivits' Riveting Key



  7. Hide the key in the hollowed out book 0/1 ALL

    Quest Text: Twift appears to be having issues with trying to fit the key into the book for safe keeping. Hide the key in the book for her.


    Place Rivits' Riveting Key inside the Routed Out Riveting Tales of Rivits and press combine to hide the key in the book.
    You have fashioned the items together to create something new: Risky Routed Out Riveting Tales of Rivits.
    Your task 'A Riveting Tale' has been updated.



  8. Return the book to the library that it was found in 0/1 The Plane of Knowledge

    Quest Text: Bring the book back to the bookshelf where it cones belonged in the Plane of Knowledge. Be discreet as you don't want to raise any awareness to this discovery, yet.


    Go back up to the library by the bookcase, this step will update in the same spot in the first step of this quest next to Grand Librarian Maelin.

    As you place the book back where you found it, Grand Librarian Maelin turns to look at you with an inquisitive look. His right eye is swollen shut as the purple and blue bruise causes you physical discomfort. He goes back to his business as if nothing was amiss.

    Your task 'A Riveting Tale' has been updated.



  9. Return to Sailor Twift and let her know you were successful 0/1 Butcherblock Mountains

    Quest Text: Now that the key and book are hidden, return to Sailor Twift and update her on the situation

    You say, 'Hail, Sailor Twift'

    Your task 'A Riveting Tale' has been updated.

    There is almost no way that this city is going to remain a secret for long.

    You receive alternate currency.

    Sailor Twift says, 'You return, and I see that you did not have an issue with the Grand Librarian. That book will be safe, hidden in plain sight. Once Raptured Daffodil finds what we are looking for, I will be sure to find you and we can share in its discovery! Keep yourself safe until then. Don't go dying on me till we can find this place!'

When I zoned into Erillion City of Bronze, my merc startled me when she (a Jann Healer aka Ondine) started talking. She said, "When the braxi falls dead, a copper colored sextant falls out of its mouth. This seems to be what Raptured Daffodil was looking for!"

Of course, I gave her the hairy eyeball, but then I searched for Raptured Daffodil and found this anniversary task, so... still weird.

Addendum: I use EQWatcher text to speech, so when I say I was startled by her sudden commentary, I mean to say, "I HEARD HER SAY IT!"

I would assume that you would eventually get an achievement credit once they add the 22nd anniversary stuff.

Knowing you did it is always a good reason if it gives you that satisfaction and achievement. But during the anniversary, you can only buy special items with your coins such as:

Ornaments, special foods like an egg salad sandwich which protects you for 20% of DoT damage for up to 23,375 points.
Fearstone Gargoyle Contract, rucksacks and satchels or a new ride; Armored Battle Bear Saddle or Bridle of the Wrulon

See 'A Jubilant Merchant' for all. I thought the exact same thing until I checked out the vendors in PoK and stumbled upon the Jublilant.
Any additional loot for doing this?

IS there any reason to do this other than for self satisfaction?
