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.



Find Sarvil Amberstone in the Dreadlands, located near the wizard and druid portals, or Nilvara Rishal in Firiona Vie at 787.87, -1974.70, 143.10, just outside the elven faction outpost.

You say, 'Hail, Sarvil Amberstone'

Sarvil Amberstone says, 'Hail, _____! I'm glad you finally found me. I thought you looked like someone who might help me out. Are you [prepared] to risk life and limb to assist me?'

You say, 'I am prepared'

Sarvil Amberstone says, 'I thought as much. In return for your help I'd be happy to give you this potion here. It's got some wonderful benefits to it that I'm sure you'll enjoy. All you need to do is collect a few things for me from around the continent. It's mostly easy and only a little dangerous, I swear. Are you still [interested]?'

You say, 'I am still interested'

Sarvil Amberstone says, 'Perfect! As I said I thought you were someone who could help me. I'm sure you'll have fun along the way with this. Here is a bag to combine the items in and a cheat-sheet to help you along in your search. Don't go asking me for any more hints, I won't give them. Return to me once you've gathered all the items and we'll see how you did. Good luck!'

Receive Collector's Cheat Sheet, with text:

1) These conflicted strands are a badge of honor
2) This pouch is crafted from finer things than leather
3) Weigh your options before seeking these
4) A crumbling intellect can be a burden
5) It towers above, but these help it grow below
6) The rhyme of the mountains
7) Cursing can be heard whenever this is used
8) Their bark is the least of your worries
9) Fans the swarming flame
10) Grown from the seeds of failure

What is really asked for:

1) A Collector's Sarnak War Braid (Sarnaks in The Overthere)
2) A Collector's Drachnid Web Sack (Drachnids in the Dreadlands)
3) A Collector's Bloodgill Scale (Bloodgills in Lake of Ill Omen)
4) A Collector's Brittle Iksar Skull (Skeleton in Field of Bone)
5) A Collector's Excavator Claws (Burynai Excavator in Kurn's Tower)
6) A Collector's Tump Stump (Mountain Giants in Frontier Mountains)
7) A Collector's Iksar Witch Doll (Goblins in Warsliks Woods)
8) A Collector's Canine (Drolvargs in Firiona Vie)
9) A Collector's Fire Hornet Wing (Hornets in Burning Wood)
10) A Collector's Nohope Moss (Froglok's in Swamp of No Hope)

Combine these 10 items in your collector's bag and return the result to Sarvil for your reward, Ceremonial Elixir of Scholarship.

Naming convention

Any chance you can change this to xth (ex: 6th) instead of spelling it out (ex: Sixth) in the Alla's database to better match the way it is referenced in-game?
That will also keep the naming convention consistent for all the anniversary stuff. So when searching for the quests and/or achievements it would show up, altogether when searching a single term (ex: 6th).

I kept search for 6th trying to find the actual 6th Anniversary task but it's listed as "EQ Sixth Anniversary Scavenger Hunt". In-game and on Allah's, the achievement is called "Achievement: 6th Anniversary Task". But on Allah's the task is called "EQ Sixth Anniversary Scavenger Hunt". However in-game, the achievement itself refers to it as 6th: Complete 6th Anniversary Scavenger Hunt

Just trying to keep things smooth and consistent.

its not really an official "quest", you don't get prompted for anything to accept.

you hail, say interested and you get the bag and cheat sheet.

Even in a full raid (confirmed)

For some of these I did it easily, but simply having all my toons in a group(ed) up position. Then had any of my toons (as these mobs are super easy), kill one and then I handed it via Master looting to the toon.
However, in some zones, here is what I did.
--Took my mage and my druid, let everyone else behind. Tracked, killed, summoned the player to loot.. then left that player there as it would have take the entire zone to even hit me let alone kill me.

) The Overthere - A Collector's Sarnak War Braid (Sarnaks)
--Can't remember but was easy

2) Warsliks Woods - A Collector's Iksar Witch Doll (Goblins, goblin fort in the north)
---I did really well in the fort, and I get the fabled clicky. I parked all my toons in the multi-tent area, right in the center of it and ran around killing everything. Was fast and I got loads of the named spawning and as mentioned the fabled.

3) Field of Bone - A Collector's Brittle Iksar Skull
--I used druid to track and mage to summon marginally annoying and slower

4) Kurn's Tower - A Collector's Excavator Claws (Burynai Excavator in the south western basement)
--This was pretty easy once in the basement, ran around killing everything and even with 18 guys it was fast.

5) Swamp of No Hope - A Collector's Nohope Moss (Frogloks in the city)
--This one was super fast, I had everyone on auto follow

6) Firiona Vie - A Collector's Canine (Drolvargs)
--Super easy, by going to the map (brels maps) areas fo drovs.. just grouped up killed handed loot over. Fast

7) Lake of Ill Omen - A Collector's Bloodgill Scale (Bloodgill Goblins at the lake bottom)
--super easy, although some mobs were further away and I didn't want to use auto follow so I had to swim over to it, loot and then my mage summoned them back

8) Frontier Mountains - A Collector's Tump Stump (Mountain Giants, giant fort northwest from entrance)
--Easiest of them all with respawn. all grouped up, had mage cast at every giant... hand loot

9) The Dreadlands - A Collector's Drachnid Web Sack (Drachnids, drachnid camp in the north east)
--this one and Field of Bone, I swear were bugged. I would hand people the right one, it would even make them answer (do you want this no trade item), but later.. i noticed I had the droppable version.. Don't ask me how, but i had 6 people with the wrong item. So had to back track which sucked.

10) Burning Woods - A Collector's Fire Hornet Wing (Hornets)
--This one... while not my favorite required my druid and mage together. What I found however, was that going UP vertical to the south/west, netted me lots of them either on the sides of the mountains or the plateau.
Either way I tracked/could see/then summoned my toon and left then standing there, mobs would beat on them and do zero damge so no biggie

11) The Dreadlands - Nexus Spire, talk to Sarvil Amberstone

For all 18 toons since i had auto follow issues bla bla and had to eat, sleep you know how it is.. took me 2 days, probably 10 hours both days.
No raiders in sight

I have completed this quest multiple times, for different toons.
The reward is called "Ceremonial Elixir of Scholarship," there is no "Dusty" in it. It is 10 charges just the same.

6th Anniversary Quest - Kunark Starts in Overthere, Friona Vie, Dreadlands

(Pre Looted)

POK== >
1. The Overthere == > Velnas T’lav just around the wall from PoK book.
Target before approaching there is an Iksar along the wall that will aggro.
A Collector's Sarnak War Braid - Sarnaks,
Sarnak Huts, tried roamers but finally kill a couple around the ruins in Northeast corner.

2. Warslike Woods == >
A Collector's Iksar Witch Doll - Goblins
Tried the Fort with no luck (1 hr) left fort and got 2 drops from camps ( < 30 min) half between OT zone line and Fort. There is a couple of camps west of the fort.

3. Lake of Ill Omen == >
A Collector's Bloodgill Scale - Bloodgills
Middle of lake or right around 0/0
If you completed the 8th anniversary task you have EB item

4. Frontier Mountains == >
A Collector's Tump Stump - Mountain Giants
Giant Fort middle east side of zone, South side of fort 3 huts in a row

5. Burning Wood == >
A Collector's Fire Hornet Wing – Hornets, off Ash Hornet
South side of zone, Running from FM – DL. There is a camp in SouthWest corner.

6. The Dreadlands == >
A Collector's Drachnid Web Sack – Drachnids
3 camps in zone 1 Northeast, 2 SouthCentral - SouthEast.
Bug is fixed 4/17

7. Friona Vie == >
A Collector's Canine - Drolvargs
DL caves run East and North (crescent) to SoHN (NorthEast) 2 camps in the middle of the crescent

8. Swamp of No Hope == >
A Collector's Nohope Moss - Froglok Raider
Froglok City North of SouthEast FV zone line.

9. Field of Bones == >
A Collector's Brittle Iksar Skull - Skeleton
Started in the pit area (>30 min) and move out to the NorthWest area between pit and trees

10. Kurn’s Tower == >
A Collector's Excavator Claws - Burynai Excavator
Ran around basement area until we got into the burynai’s
We had levitate on to avoid falling down in the traps (couldn’t remember how to get out of the lowest level so stayed away from it. Hunted years ago I don't need no stinking maps know it like the back of my hand = lost)

Now if you completed the Pub Crawl and have your stein - port to POK run to Overthere stone.

other wise
Field of Bones == > PoK == > The Overthere combine and turn in destroy book. Enjoy 30 minutes of mad EXP at a time. Hopefully you are the lowest level in group. Maybe a little PLing.

Not knowing that these could be pre-looted this is the way I went about it. Knowing now they can be pre-looted I would perform in reverse order just because I end up at task mob.
Never thought to bind at Velnas T'lav, not sure you can.

The maps I use are from EQ Atlas even the revamped zones you can get an idea. Levels being laid out side by side are a big help. They have Location bars for those of us who need all the help we can get in this area. eqatlas.ca

When I am trying to locate a mob or a LOC from Zam I use EQ Magelo. Pull the zone map, if mob search the list of mobs, for item mouse pointer over the map gives location or LOC
6) A Collector's Tump Stump

Seventh Hammer Server seems to be having issues with the Collector's Drachnid Web Sac dropping in the Dreadlands. Camped for over 8 hours myself with no drops. on the 13th started around noon until internet drop around midnight, where I took over from another player who had been there for hours before me. Resumed killing on the 14th with no drops stayed for about 2 hours or so . Jumping back in now and again to wipe the zone with no luck. Not a tracker but tried killing whole zone.

Been at it myself for around 4 hours on Lockjaw and I have a tracker, a bard, killed at least 200 of them without getting any drops. Just now seeing your post so i am moving on to one of the other items. Hopefully they fix this

i have found after farming these for 14 of my toons that if you go to the zone the item drops in, find /loc 0, 0 and kill near there you'll have the best luck on drops, kill every mob in that area for any mob is a PHer for the mob that drops the item try to stay somewhat close to this /loc i found the more you venture away from it the worse the drop rate becomes.

This is very similar to my route:

Firiona Vie
Swamp of No Hope
Field of Bone
Kurn's Tower
Warsliks Wood
The Overthere
Frontier Mountains
Lake of Ill Omen
Dreadlands
Burning Woods
Dreadlands

The first six are exactly reversed from yours, requiring Frontier Mtns and Lake of Ill Omen to need to be swapped as well.

Although I prefer mine (likely because I've done the path so many times), they are essentially the same.

Of course picking up the quest, and turning in the collection is easier with a porter, but either sequence works for running the least.

Don't waste your time hunting goblins in and around the fort, you won't get the Iksar Witch Doll. Instead, explore the whole zone and track (if it's possible) the goblin casters. I spent a whole hour in the goblin fort and I got nothing, I wandered in the zone using track, and I got my item after killing one goblin.

Sarnak War braid
# Mar 20 2012 at 5:35 AM Rating: Decent
Took ABOUT 30 minutes, killed every sarnak I could find as an 85 ranger with track. Finally I came across one with the ' Messenger ' name in it as a sarnak, and dropped on first kill!
Also don't make the dumb mistake I did and get half Collector's and half regulars and try to combine after 'thinking' you're finished. ALL have to be Collector's :D

For those trying to do this quest with the least time effort I can only recommend this post!
Just one minor thing: In WW you need to head north to the goblin fort from where you zone in.

You can't do this quest again because you have already done it once. Sony made it so you can only do this quest once per toon. This is not a repeatable quest. Have tried each year since it came out and the results are always the same, can't do it again :(
