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 Garin Thavlish in the Plane of Tranquility, next to a bookcase near the Plane of Knowledge book.

Upon entering the zone...

Garin Thavlish says 'Welcome _____! I was hoping you could help me gather a few things from the planes. Come see me near the Plane of Knowledge book and I'll tell you more.'

You say, 'Hail, Garin Thavlish'

Garin Thavlish says 'Ah, thank you for coming _____. I'm doing research into some of the inhabitants and creatures of the planes and need a few more samples. Would you be willing to [help] me collect them?'

You say, 'I will help'

Garin Thavlish says 'Excellent, here's the list of items I'm looking for and a bag to hold them in. Make sure to seal the bag once you've found them all and then return it to me.'

Receive a Planar Collection Bag, a 10-slot container, and a Planar Clue Book which reads:

1. Terror tooth.
2. A sickly orb of eight.
3. In-dependent of courage.
4. You'll have to plan carefully to avoid getting cut by this.
5. Does this hide the just punishment?
6. These have the whirlwind licked.
7. Does this hide the suffering?
8. This drives original thinking.
9. Ei no what you need.
10. Not something you fillet.

1. A Collector's Hobgoblin Tusk, dropped by hobgoblins in the cave in the Plane of Nightmare
2. A Collector's Spider Eye, dropped by spiders in the cave in the Plane of Disease. If you get no drops there, kill in the area north of the cave.
3. A Collector's Pendant of Marr, dropped by guards in the Plane of Valor
4. A Collector's Diaku Blade, dropped by diaku in Drunder, Fortress of Zek, a.k.a. Plane of Tactics
5. A Collector's Cloak of Justice, dropped by guards near the portal to the trial area in the Plane of Justice
6. A Collector's Frog Tongue, dropped by frogs near the tornado in the Plane of Storms
7. A Collector's Tormentor Hide, dropped by boruk and kaniz in Saryrn's tower in the Plane of Torment. These also drop in the SE corner of the zone.
8. A Collector's Innovative Gear, dropped by robots in the Plane of Innovation
9. A Collector's Note, obtained by hailing Aid Eino in the library tower in the Plane of Knowledge:

You say, 'Hail, Aid Eino'

Aid Eino says 'You made it. Garin told me to expect you at some point. Here are the notes he was asking for.'

10. A Collector's Soul, obtained by hailing Soulbinder Derith in the Plane of Tranquility:

You say, 'Hail, Soulbinder Derith'

Soulbinder Derith says 'Welcome ______. I suppose Garin is still too lazy to come see me himself. Here is what he was asking for. It's best not to ask where it came from.'

Combine the 10 Planes of Power collector's items inside the container to produce a Sealed Planar Collection Bag. Give this to Garin Thavlish to receive:

Brick of Knowledge
Slot: AMMO
Charges: Unlimited
Recommended level of 75.
Effect: Knowledge Gate (Any Slot/Can Equip, Casting Time: 10.0)
Recast Delay: 72000 seconds, Recast Type: -1

2. A Collector's Spider Eye, dropped by spiders in the cave in the Plane of Disease

These dropped north of the cave. 2 loops in the cave with no drops, but dropped almost every kill in the area north of the cave, so kill north of the cave not in the cave.

A Collector's Tormentor Hide, dropped by boruk and kaniz in Saryrn's tower in the Plane of Torment

These dropped in the SE corner. Tower was locked to me, left it going east, went around going east, second area I came to dropped plenty.

Naming convention
# Apr 02 2022 at 8:29 AM Rating: Good
277 posts
Any chance you can change this to xth (ex: 9th) instead of spelling it out (ex: Ninth) 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: 9th).

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.

I was in PoStorms, and after collecting 12 of the 18 needed, they stopped dropping altogether. we killed for more than 1.5 hours and had zero drops. People tried to log, people zoned, people dropped raid, dropped groups didn't matter they just stopped.

Going to leave do another and come back.

Totally sucks

Just an Update to this

After another hour I left, I did two more zones, again broke my my raid, started just the 6 players in a group. i had tried this before (minus doing two other zones), but I had zones out, logged etc. Anyway once I came back they dropped quickly.

And now all 18 are done

The Plane of Torment Drop, Collector's Tormentors Hide, does drop outside Saryrn's Tower.

Was a bit annoyed when I got there and couldn't zone in. Logged in to start the key quest and got jumped, got drop.

It was in the room west of the Avatar of Suffering spawn point on map.

took about 2 an a half hours to solo this quest today using my lvl 80 ranger... longest part was getting the tormentors hide from the plane of torment... that part took about an hour by itself...

I got the cloak off one of the roaming sentries downstairs from the entrance. So it doesn't just drop off the justices near the trials.

you can't get into zek at 55-- only at 60-- it sucks to do all this on my level 55 only to find she can't even get in the zone

collector's pendant of Marr

Well, stood for 11 hours going up and down ramp in castle fighting only the guards [only 4, with a repop time of 15 minutes] so I reread the posting in alla and decided after all this time might as well try something else inbetween, targeted one of the squad leaders and up he comes with 5 of his men, bingo! got it in 5 minutes.

# Mar 30 2012 at 3:57 PM Rating: Decent
11 hours for Collector's pendant is just brutal. Even holy water for Berserker's epic didn't take that long. For me, it would normally take between 3rd-20 kills at tents for Collector's pendant to drop. I have done this quest about 20 times for my toons and others. I understand some times they are just brutally unlucky. Just get your main to to wipe the tents. It should not take more than 2 clears for most. then again it may never drop at tents for you..

Stats were removed from the "Brick of Knowledge" because they are ignored in the Ammo slot (ie. you do not get the benefit). Still a nice once-a-day PoK port clicky (20 hour refresh).

The Tents are the wrong place to farm the Pendant. I farmed the tents for about 5 or 6 hours based off of erroneous information provided citing the tents as the location. When i moved to the castle (finally) I dropped no less than FOUR pendants.

location inside the big castle at or around : -26,-91, 56

Just tried this quest with my level 55 monk who has zero PoP flags. Cannot get into Drunder...Plane of Tactics at 55 (but you can get into all the other zones required).

Like all the other anniversary scavenger hunts, this quest will be available every anniversary (around March-April).

Here are things I have confirmed:

1. Drops off hobgoblins in the middle cave of the three uppermost caves in the north part of the zone. There are about a dozen hobgoblins in here and almost every single one dropped a tusk. Drop rate is greater than 75%.

2. Drops off any of the arachnids/arachlings in the southern area of the zone. Drop rate is around 50%.

3. Named and non-named guards both drop it very commonly. The best place to hunt is in the tents east-northeast of zone in spot. Drop rate is greater than 75%.

4. Supposedly any Diaku can drop this, but for me it seemed to only drop from anything that conned green at 85, namely Diaku Elites. Drop rate is around 50%.

5. I didn't see them on any of the roaming sentries, but did find them easily on the High Guardians and sentries near the Trials zone in. They may also drop off any stationary sentry, but this last part is unconfirmed. Drop rate is unconfirmed; seems to be around 50% or less.

6. The tornado has nothing to do with this one; in fact, I didn't even bother testing those mobs as you don't have to go any further than the zone in for this drop. The frogs near the zone in will do. Drop rate is greater than 75%.

7. It drops off any wolf/boar looking creature. It does *not* have to be in Saryn's tower. I got it off the mobs near the Avatar of Agony (from construct breeder). Drop rate is greater than 75%.

8. Contrary to previous posts, it drops off of "a corroded model" and "a rusted model," and it doesn't matter if they are located - on the paths or in the side rooms, drop rate is the same. Drop rate is greater than 75%.

9. Hail Aid Eino in Plane of Knowledge (go to the library and take the elevator next to Wanderer Thermon up to the top).

10. Hail the Soulbinder in Plane of Tranquility (north building, same room as bankers).

Useful information but this part is wrong:

"3. Named and non-named guards both drop it very commonly. The best place to hunt is in the tents east-northeast of zone in spot. Drop rate is greater than 75%. "

The Tents are the wrong place to farm the Pendant. I farmed the tents for about 5 or 6 hours based off of erroneous information provided citing the tents as the location. When i moved to the castle (finally) I dropped no less than FOUR pendants.
