Did they place the old anniversary scavenger hunts in as well this time? I wouldn't mind getting the XP potion for a few newly levelled alts...

I still have an extra combined bag from the sixth anniversary, I was hoping that when the seventh came around, the quest giver would come abck and I could get a second elixir. But when the seventh happened that did not work out.

1. Loo careflly a what you see. Find what yu are missin and use it to you advantge.

2. All the better to hear you with!

3. This is an unhappy little hallux.

4. You seek something basic.

A hallux is a big toe. :)

I found the following items:

Good call bbot - Collectors Crude Stone Idol (I got from a Shak Dratha Guardsman) in Shadeweavers (#1)
Confirmed - A Collector's Sonic Wolf Ear in Tenebrous (#2)
Collector's Grimling Toe (Grimlings in Grimling Forest, #3)
Collector's Tribal Belt (Tribals in DSP, which one is this?)
Collector's Polished Stone (stonegrabbers in Mons Letalis, #5)
Collector's Sun Revenant Veil (Sun Revenants on plateau in Scarlet Desert, #6)
Collector's Lightcrawler Shell (Lightcrawler in Dawnshroud, maybe #7)
Confirmed - Collector's Fungal Fiend Flesh from Patog Fiends in Paludal (#8)
Collector's Netherbian Claw (Netherbians in Netherbian Lair, maybe #9)
Collector's Rockhopper Hide (rockhopper in Maurus Seru - which #?)

That's all of them, I believe. :)

Looks like it's bugged at the moment. When hailed with my character who did all the other anniversary quests, she says:

Thank you again for your help, Arvarien. I don't know how I would have finished my collection without you.

She won't do anything else. When hailed with my warrior, however, she did give the collection bag and note (as I typed in above). Strange.

I /bugged it.

Take care all.

Thank you very much, Hicks!

What level is your warrior? There may be different quests for different levels...

Edit: Everybody who's doing the scanveger hunt, please run the item collector so that we get the drops on Lucy!

Bleh.

SOE may have just recycled the Staff of Endless Adventure as the reward for this collection quest - which is why my main (71 RNG) can't get the backpack or note from the NPC (and why she says thanks for helping, even though he hadn't collected any Luclin items yet - she thinks that he's done it already). It's the only thing I can think of.

If SOE just recycled the reward for the collection quest, I'm going to be a little miffed - I actually look forward to these as they're fun to do - but to recycle something like this just seems like someone at SOE was just lazy and didn't want to be bothered to make one interesting item. Or anything.

/sighs

Hopefully they'll respond to questions on the EQ Live boards on this and say they'll fix it. I won't hold my breath though.

Greyhopper in MS drops the skin.

However someone had all 10 and the bag won't combine so there are 3 possibilities:

1: like last year there are more than 1 quest giver. I have not heard of any other though so it's not likely

2: someone had problem getting the quest so the quest may be bugged so it cant be finished yet

3: 1 or more collector items are decoy and won't do anything but annoy us.

I would, but when I run it and zone to update it, this is what happens:

Connection close detected, resetting.
Setting up session: Client port 3021, Server port 1364. SKey is 0x360c9889.

WinPcap is installed and working too, so I don't know what's wrong with this.

Thanks.

I still think that there are more than 10 collector's items and that there is more than one quest, depending on your level (as SOE said the scavenger hunt will be for everyone). Only one quest giver was announced in the patch message.

Anyone tried to get the quest with a low level character?

I got a different hunt given to me by Nilvara Rishal in Firiona Vie as I was on my way to Karnor's Castle.

I am a lvl 57 Cleric and here are my clues:

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.

Researching for answers at mo :)

Really?
Well at least I can get the answers quicker :)

Yup - got that quest this morning at 09:56GMT

Just checked my logfile again - gotta love YALP.exe - Nilvara is offering me a potion for completing the hunt, so maybe the 6th hunt has crept back in by mistake?

Opinion on the reward: Anyone who can complete this can get an EB item or potion. It's not insta-click (junk buff) and it's a warder (that blocks the other 'shroom warder that gives +5 regen and 15 to poison and disease resists). So, I think the reward is crap.

Better idea: Faerune on the warder. Or some insta-click buff that stacks with raid buffs. Then it would be worth the effort.

Truth: I just love scavenger hunts. I was mashing the "combine" button, though, for half an hour, about to petition, until a friend linked an 11th "collector's" item. Then I figured out that there were some distracting items out there. ;)
