|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|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.
NOTE: To request the Level 90 version of this task, ALL members of your group must be Level 90. To request a lower level version (with lesser quality rewards and maybe lesser mob strength), the requester should be the lowest level member of your group.
NOTE: While the aug rewards are different item IDs, they are of the same lore group. This means you can't loot both the Level 85 and Level 90 versions of an aug. You can only have one or the other.
You can request this task at any level. For versions below Level 85, however, the only reward you get is a single chest loot item: "Silver Steamwork Gear" of varying quality.
During the course of this task, you'll have the option of completing a side task, "The Short Circuit". This is given by Assistant Gerta, who spawns after you've cleared a certain number of mobs.
This is a group task that made its debut with EverQuest's 12th anniversary. It is expected to only remain available during the anniversary/fabled period.
The task is given by Gearbie Gogglenoggin in the Plane of Knowledge (near the Plane of Tranquility stone).
You say, 'Hail, Gearbie Gogglenoggin'
Gearbie Gogglenoggin says 'Could it be? Am I talking to the infamous, ______? Yes, it is you! Am I happy to see you! I have a [mission] of the utmost importance and I believe you would be perfect for it!'
You say, 'What mission?'
Gearbie Gogglenoggin says 'You are going to infiltrate the [Mechamatic Guardian] from the inside. It won't be easy, but I have full confidence in your abilities.'
You say, 'What Mechamatic Guardian?'
Gearbie Gogglenoggin says 'You know of the Mechamatic Guardian, don't you? It is humongous clockwork that roams the Dragonscale Hills. It just so happens that an associate I have worked with in the past has just installed a new CPU inside the head of the Guardian. If you can obtain his access codes, I believe you can disable the CPU and destroy it. Doing so would effectively cripple the Guardian. Why do I want to do this? Because it will be [fun]!'
You say, 'Why fun?'
Gearbie Gogglenoggin says 'This will be a dangerous mission, but I know you can handle it. What do you say? Are you [in]?'
You say, 'I am in.'
Gearbie Gogglenoggin says 'I knew you would help me. When you are [ready], I can teleport you inside of the Guardian. I will meet you inside for a short briefing. Oh, and hold on to this bleach. You are going to need it during your mission.'
You say, 'I am ready.'
You zone in.
Trash mobs in the zone (for the Level 90 task) hit for a max ~7,000.
Speak with Gearbie again once you are inside The Mechamatic Guardian 0/1 (The Mechamatic Guardian)
He is at the zone-in.
Defeat some of the Mechano Steam Sentinels 0/4 (The Mechamatic Guardian)
Defeat some of the Mechano Steam Sentries 0/2 (The Mechamatic Guardian)
Defeat some of the Mechano Steam Warders 0/4 (The Mechamatic Guardian)
Pour the bleach into the oil reserves bay 0/1 (The Mechamatic Guardian)
This is the first main room with named mobs (from the original instance) with the conveyor belt in back, and a pool of water in the front.
There are four see invis mobs here (goos). You need to click bottle in the water.
Return to Gearbie near the entrance of the Guardian and speak with him 0/1 (The Mechamatic Guardian)
Defeat the CPU's creator, Sork Hibbleton 0/1 (The Mechamatic Guardian)
Kill Sork Hibbleton on the top floor.
Speak with the CPU and enter the correct code to lower its defenses 0/1 (The Mechamatic Guardian)
In the book, you'll find five numbers. Say the right set to the CPU to make it killable (123456). If you speak the wrong code, four adds spawn.
Destroy the CPU 0/1 (The Mechamatic Guardian)
The CPU sees invis and spawns four adds every 20%. If you get into trouble, you can fade/memblur the CPU and kill the adds one by one. The CPU will regen to 100%, but won't spawn that set of adds again.
Both the CPU and its adds are mezzable. The adds can be pacified for easier pulling.
Speak with Gearbie 0/1 (The Mechamatic Guardian)
Loot the ornate chest 0/1 (The Mechamatic Guardian)
The chest spawns at the top of the guardian.

Same name, different stats. The rewards for the lower level version are Required Level 85 / Recommended Level 80.
The auto-rewards are the same.

There are no additional rewards for the lower level versions of the task.
