For an overview, schedule, and list of EverQuest Anniversary events, see this quest entry.
This is an anniversary solo task (with a 24-hour timer) introduced with EverQuest's 16th anniversary. It begins with a half-elf named "Zantog, the Greatest" (click for map image) in the Plane of Knowledge (located southeast of the main bank).
Pre-Requisites for Requesting:
- Level ?? (maximum mob levels encountered will be Level 100)
- No other requirements
Say "vanity and glory" to request the task and "transport" to get a teleport to the non-instanced Morell's Castle zone (will teleport you at any time in the task).
You say, 'Hail, Zantog, the Greatest'
Zantog, the Greatest muses, thoughtfully, 'A good man helps himself. A great man helps everyone else. A grater man transforms a block of cheese into smaller pieces of cheese. A [greater] man strives to make Norrath a better place.'
You say, 'What greater man?'
Zantog, the Greatest says 'Morell's Ball will be upon us soon. The most vain and glorious inhabitants of Morell's Plane must reach even greater heights of [vanity and glory].'
You say, 'I'd like to get in on that vanity and glory...'
Zantog, the Greatest says 'That's great! Would you like me to [transport] you to Morell's Castle now?'
You have been assigned the task 'Belle of the Ball'.
A pair of puppets preparing for Morell's Ball are each searching for accessories to ensure that they will be the most fabulous one in attendance.
You say, 'Transport me, please...'
Zantog, the Greatest begins to cast a spell. <Rift of Dreams>
Zantog, the Greatest says 'Off you go. Dream of greatness, _____.'
MESSAGE OF THE DAY:
You have entered Morell's Castle.
Speak to Vainglorious Gloria 0/1 (Morell's Castle)
You say, 'Hail, Vainglorious Gloria'
Vainglorious Gloria turns toward you, dramatically, 'It's about time you showed up, _____! This is a situation most dire. The ball will soon be upon us, and I can't let that jabbering jester [steal the show] again.'
You say, 'Steal the show?'
Vainglorious Gloria brings one arm up to her forehead to strike an exaggerated and unmistakable woe-is-me pose, 'Without a [Plumed Masquerade Ball Masque] to complement my attire, I can't dare show my face at the ball. Ironically, the masque will cover my face so I won't actually be showing it in any case, but you understand what I'm getting at.'
You say, 'What about this Plumed Masquerade Ball Masque?'
Vainglorious Gloria speaks slowly and deliberately, her wooden jaw emitting a solid *clack* with each enunciated syllable, 'The recipe is in your book and the details of where you'll find the components are in your journal. Waste no time.'
You have learned the recipe Plumed Masquerade Ball Mask!
Create a Plumed Masquerade Ball Mask 0/1 (ALL)

Combine the above 10 items in a 10-slot sewing kit or loom (no-fail combine, but requires a minimum tailoring skill of 30) to produce 1x "Plumed Masquerade Ball Mask".
Deliver the masque to Vainglorious Gloria 0/1 (Morell's Castle)
Vainglorious Gloria snatches the mask from you, greedily. 'Aha! I truly will be the Belle of the Ball!'
Speak to Cruel Danille 0/1 (Morell's Castle)
You say, 'Hail, Cruel Danille'
Cruel Danille flops to one side and exclaims, 'I can't show up to the ball wearing these old threads. This look is done to death. It was old news last year. No, I need to be unique, special, furry, and Morell willing, patterned with brightly-colored dots. Yes, yes yes. Some [rabbit hunting] is in order.'
You say, 'Rabbit hunting?'
Cruel Danille straightens up momentarily, then flops again as though the effort to hold himself upright is an impossible task, 'You can't damage the pelts, understand, so a [special snare] is in order. Your job is to make the snare and then use it to capture a heaping helping of hapless hares.'
You say, 'A special snare?'
Cruel Danille flops from one side to the other excitedly, 'The recipe is in your book and the details of where you'll find the components are in your journal.'
You have learned the recipe Sticky Marshmallow Goo!
Create a Sticky Marshmallow Goo 0/1 (ALL)
Task Window Says: Using a mixing bowl with at least 10 slots, create Sticky Marshmallow Goo by following the pattern in your recipe book. Components can be acquired from bixies in Bixie Warfront, gingerbread men in Morell's Castle, and gelatinous cubes in Dead Hills.
- bixies in the non-instanced version of Bixie Warfront (the garden area through the tunnel)

Combine the above nine items in a Mixing Bowl (no-fail combine, but requires a minimum baking skill of 30) to produce 1x "Sticky Marshmallow Hoo".
Capture Zhuzhu with the Marshmallow Goo 0/1 (Morell's Castle)
Capture Kadath with the Marshmallow Goo 0/1 (Morell's Castle)
Capture Manda-Beth with the Marshmallow Goo 0/1 (Morell's Castle)
The above three mobs are rabbits in Morell's Castle (one in the southern part of the forest; the other two in candyland). DPS them to under 20% health, and then click the Goo on them to update. (These mobs are of average difficulty for the zone; hit for a max ~10,000 and immune to mez/stun/root/snare.)
Give the Sticky Marshmallow Goo to Cruel Danille 0/1 (Morell's Castle)
Note: If you want the bonus item for this task, go to Crescent Reach and capture rabbits there before handing in the Goo.
Cruel Danille smiles so broadly that you hear a few stitches in his mouth pop loose. 'Hee hee! Now I will be the Belle of the Ball!'
You delivered a hand-crafted masquerade ball mask to Vainglorious Gloria, and you also delivered three spotted bunnies you captured to Cruel Danille. Both are certain that these fashionable accessories will make them the Belle of the Ball.
