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.



This is an anniversary quest available only during anniversary season (a few weeks during March and April). It was introduced in 2009 as part of EverQuest's 10th anniversary.

This is one of 16 deity quests. For an overview of how rewards work and how these quests are linked with one another, see this writeup.

Below here are the details for this particular quest.



Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane`s Image wanders the Plane of Knowledge near the Soulbinder.

You say, 'Hail, Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane`s Image'

Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane`s Image says 'Hello there! You might know me. Then again, you might not. No matter to me, really. I just wanted to invite you to a [party]!'

You say, 'A party?'

Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane`s Image says 'It seems to me that lately you folks here on Norrath have gotten a bit too stressed out. You've been slaying dragons for a decade, it's time to relax! So I've set up some firework shows for you. Of course with any good party plans, you really should expect to go to several places to get the most out of it. So do you want to enjoy a good show? Are you up to the challenge? A party [challenge]!'

You say, 'I'll take the challenge'

Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane`s Image says 'Well then, good luck! Most of all have fun!'

You have been assigned the task 'Bristlebane's Party Favor - Bristlebane's Favor'.

Bristlebane wants you to visit the firework shows all over Norrath. They happen only at one place at a time, so you have to keep moving!

Bristlebane told you that he's having a party and has challenged you to participate. All over Norrath, and likely a few other places, there are firework shows to enjoy. All he has asked is that you find those fireworks and enjoy them. But the fireworks show only happens in one place at a time, so you'll have to keep moving. Bristlebane assured you that nothing bad would happen to you...

These locations aren't all correct and I don't understand the timing. Does the party robot got to each zone sequentially? What does PDT mean? Is that game time?

Yes, the party machine goes to each of the locations in order. But the thing is he does not start with the first one each day. He continues to go thru the list even as no one is playing.

One thing that is confusing is that people post which zone he is in but never post the server they are on. Its different for each server.

That is where the formula comes into play. For example, you log in and want to know where he is. Go to POK and type /up in your chat window and you will get a time - for example:

/up
05:21:30:07 (take the 5 which is days x 24 which is hours in a day) = 120
Add those to the other hours listed (21) + 120
Equals 141

Now 141 divided by 20 (the 20 is how many zones it will go thru) = 7.05

Drop the whole number (7) and just use the fraction .05 which
you will multiply by 20 (.05 x 20) = 1

***note there can be, but not always a minus 4 or minus 7 from that end number. So you would use the main list and count accordingly.

So he would be in zone 1 which is Butcher Block. Use the zone list in the main write up. And the first zone listed, Steamfront counts as 0 Zero.

So he will be in that zone - which ever it is for you) for 1 hour then he will move to the next zone on the list. No need to do the formula again unless you have logged out and need the new location. Or unless there was a patch.

He has been hitting closer to 30 minutes after the hour on Tunare so give him a little time if you don't see him

PST mean pacific standard time.

** more on this note. When it started this year we had to minus 4 from the end formula but after patch it was exactly the last number you come up with. It still is on Tunare.

After patch the formula ends after you time the fraction with no -4 or -7 on Tunare. So do the math, Steamfront counts as 0.

I found it minutes after it started. It follows the path starting at either Oggok or the PoK book but it follows the path even the little turns. I didn't stay to see if it goes off the path and around the druid ring or to the Innothule zoneline and back.

Tunare been gone a while...

It appears to be -4 technically? But it is appearing on the hour, so the math is right if you want to be there in time.

Your math may get you 14, let's say.

It was in Natimbi at 1pm PST, but when he shows in Highpass on the hour at 2 pm PST, the math would say 14 for a minute and then go to 15 a couple of minutes later since /uptime is a minute or off of the hour. So use -4 and then head to the next if you're after the hour-5 min mark, probably the safest bet...if that makes sense, because the /uptime changes like 2 minutes after the hour.

It doesn't appear on track...

Per below:

Zoning in from PoK book, head south following the road, and go around the curve. Right there at that Guard Building, loc will be about +1167, -322, BPM will continue following the road, stopping just in eye shot of the next guard tower where the road goes from being diagonal to straight south, loc where he stops for a few seconds and turns around is +205, -211.

This is correct. The -1607, -327 location shown as confirmed is NOT correct.

On Tunare this year the formula is -4

Also noticed over the last few years that the Party Machine does not enter the zone at the top of the hour. He enters at 15 after, like 8:15, 1:15, 4:15 and so on. So don't be discouraged if you don't see him right away.

Hi.

On AB this year the formula is:

type "/up in pok" then:
day*24 + hour then divide by 20.
Take remainder (decimal value) * 20 - 9

That number is the zone number he is in. And Steamfont counts as "zone 0" so make sure to take that into account.

For this year the equation on Tunare stops at the fraction x 20. No need to -3 or - 9 after that


/up
05:21:30:07 (take the 5 which is days x 24 which is hours in a day) = 120
Add those to the other hours listed (21) + 21
Equals 141

Now 141 divided by 20 (the 20 is how many zones it will go thru) = 7.05

Drop the whole number (7) and just use the fraction .05 which
you will multiply by 20 (.05 x 20) = 1

He would be in zone # 1 or Butcherblock.

Type /up in pok.

Day times 24, plus hour, divide by 20. Take decimal times 20, minus 9. Remainder corresponds to the zone the BBPM is in.

Example:
/up
12:23:00:00 (d/h/m/s)
12x24=288
288+23=311
311/20=15.55
.55x20=11
11-9=2

2 Is the second zone in the quest entry.
