Fourteenth anniversary[edit]

15th anniversary banner on the good side of the Plane of Knowledge


Huckle Thornleaf is the last remaining member of a covert task force whose sole focus was to gather intelligence on Xorbb's army. Alone in the woods, Huckle is bound by honor to remain at his post, but worries for the safety of his comrades who he believes were captured by Xorbb's minions. Luckily, Huckle has a plan, and it involves you using the guise of an evil eye to infiltrate Xorbb's stronghold and rescue the remaining task force members.
This is an easy to do solo mission needed to request or zone into Big Gnomes, Big Problems.
Giant skeletons have started attacking the gates of Ak'anon, and threaten to crush the small gnome army defending it. Join the resistance and help them not only stop the giant skeleton invasion, but uncover who's behind it all. Gnomish inventors will aid you in your mission, granting you boons like super-size, a flamethrower, and a top-secret bunny disguise. Best of all, the mission is level-agnostic, allowing characters of any level play through it together without the use of shrouds.
Piestro was enjoying a day off wandering about the Great Divide, when the designers contacted him and gave him some alarming news: Bristlebane is making a huge stink about how the developers haven't paid him any attention lately, so he kidnapped one of them and stashed them away in the Plane of Mischief.
The design team has asked Piestro to find some brave adventurers to rescue the captured developer. You will have to play by Bristlebane's rules in his realm, however, and become one of his wacky minions. What tricks does Bristlebane have in store for you and your fellow adventurers? There is only one way to find out; enter the Plane of Mischief and try to keep your wits about you!
A necromancer by the name of Xmiticzin has obtained a larger piece of a Cazic's shard, and gained control over the artifact vault in Chapterhouse of the Fist. The Harbingers want his shard as part of their mission to revive Cazic Thule. Unfortunately, he has barricaded himself inside the vault and forces anyone trying to reach him to play demented games. In order to reach him, you'll have to get through his games alive.
Choose to either work with the minions of the First Creation in Convorteum to discover which of his creations has become a traitor, or to overthrow his tyrannical rule! (you can do both, but they share a 6 hour lockout timer)

Rewards

Each fourteenth anniversary mission (except for Ogres at the Gates) has a reward chest. The items in the chests, according to EQ Resource, are Tier 2 Rain of Fear equivalent gear, as well as an augmentation. Experience is a choice of around 2-3% Regular each or 4-5 AA each.

The augmentations are:

You can only have one Stone of Power (Lore Group: Stones of Power).

Fifteenth anniversary[edit]

15th anniversary banner in the Plane of Knowledge

Each fifteenth anniversary quest rewards you with five Commemorative Coin upon completion (repeatable). Commemorative coins can purchase items from a jubilant merchant (Special Celebratory Goods).

The Plane of War[edit]

The Plane of War 15th anniversary group mission is called War Games. You obtain it by speaking to Commander Gorok in the Plane of Tranquility. It is designed for players level 65 and up. It will scale in difficultly and reward based on the level of those in the mission.

The loot chest should contain one of the following items. These items are all Lore Group: Lesser Remnants of War, which means you can only have one of the five.


There is also an illusion item with AC. This item is intended to be in the chest every time.

  • Bloodmetal Inlaid Gnollish Totem - It changes the user into a Gnoll and casts a buff that offers some AC. The buff adds Item: Gnoll Reaver Fortitude to your Special AAs.

If you turn the Totem in to Yaldu Bwor (the Gnoll shroud NPC in Plane of Knowledge), this will unlock five Gnoll Shrouds to use, as you level these shrouds the AC buff on the Totem Clicky will gain in power, at max rank it is 173 ac at level 100. This AC buff stacks with all other AC buffs.


Should you complete the mission with a "high score" you will be granted a bonus title "Dog of War".

Eighteenth anniversary[edit]

The eighteenth anniversary adds three tasks:

  • Fippy's Further Revenge (Allakhazam, EQ Resource) - Given by a sloshed gnoll (18th Anniversary Mission) in the Plane of Knowledge. This is a group quest (minimum 1, maximum 6). Upon completion, each character gets experience, 800 platinum pieces, and 10 Commemorative Coins.
  • Tsaph's Day Off (Allakhazam, EQ Resource) - Given by High Magister Zueria (18th Anniversary Quest) in the Plane of Knowledge. This is a group quest (minimum 1, maximum 6). Upon completion, each character gets a small amount of experience and 1 Commemorative Coin. Each character completing the task also receives Zueria Slide: Skyfire, which may be clicked to cycle the item through different six items. Each one is exactly the same, except the port location changes. The list of locations is Skyfire, Stonebrunt, Great Divide, North Ro, Nektulos, Dreadlands. If you have an augmentation in any of the slots, it tells you, "You must remove any augments in this item before attempting to convert it."

In addition, there are 'hidden' bonus items from two of the tasks:

Nineteenth anniversary[edit]

Lost Wayfarer's Tent - Bonus reward for 19th anniversary task Lost but Not Forgotten.

Solo

Completing each of the solo tasks earns you 5 Commemorative Coins.

  • Pieces is Pieces (Allakhazam, EQ Resource) - Given by Fabikren in the Plane of Knowledge.
    • Bonus achievement and item Deep Caverns Collector's Case. Note that before you can get this item, you must finish Fish Eyes in the Dark (below) or it will state that you do not have the knowledge for such a combine.
  • Fish Eyes in the Dark (Allakhazam, EQ Resource) - Given by Cedfer the Fishmonger in the Plane of Knowledge.
    • Bonus achievement and item The Bone Rod. Warning: The Bone Rod can break if used for fishing.

Group

Completing each of the group tasks earns each character 10 Commemorative Coins.


There *IS* a way to know the correct room [for the bonus item in A Formal Dinner Party]. If you know the murderer and took good notes along the way of things that "don't belong", and make a careful observation of the murderer before you state the room, then information *IS* available. (that's as much of a hint, and it's a fairly telling hint IMO, as I'm giving, at this time)

One shortcut, if feasible around mobs, is that killing the hallway NPC's is not necessary, nor the "entry hall" Only the rooms that Melion asks about can have the clues.

Ngreth, EQ Developer

Bugs[edit]

  • Pieces is Pieces and Fish Eyes in the Dark share an 18 hour lockout. They also share it with the Tenth anniversary task Fishing for Blessings - Prexus's Favor.

They are sharing a lockout timer with each other and with Fishing for Blessings - Prexus' Favor. Will look into fixing this for a future update.

Prathun, EQ Developer

It is reported that a work-around is to get both Pieces is Pieces and Fish Eyes in the Dark at the same time.
  • A Formal Dinner Party - Upon killing NPCs you get: "Your faction standing with Beta KOS could not get any worse."

Technically, yes, it is a bug. Though a harmless bug.

Ngreth, EQ Developer

Raids[edit]

See also: Dragons, Dragons, Dragons!

Eleventh anniversary

  • Steel Behemoths - The reward is your choice of several items. The raid can be repeated (69 hour lockout) to gain more of the items.

Thirteenth anniversary

Fifteenth anniversary

Main article: The Plane of War > Raid

On May 12, 2014, SOE announced this raid will be permanently added to the game.

Seventeenth anniversary

Hate's Fury: Seventeen Pieces of Silver

Hate's Fury Sails Again

For our 17th Anniversary, we've added a hybrid event to Norrath called “Hate’s Fury: Seventeen Pieces of Silver.” Krasnok's ship, Hate's Fury: The Scorned Maiden, has set sail once again, and this time he's got friends. Sixteen of them, in fact. Each of them will give a reward of Commemorative Coins, and if you defeat all of the crew members, you can unlock the door to Krasnok's cabin and face the Captain (#17!) himself for raid-quality rewards.

March 2016 Patch Preview


Krasnok’s 16 new officers will offer a challenge for groups of level 105 adventurers. Each carries a Commemorative Coin as a reward for defeating them. If you can overpower all of them you will be able to unlock the door to Krasnok's cabin and face the Captain himself! To battle him, however, you will need a raid of level 105 characters. Defeating Captain Krasnok will result in raid-quality rewards.

Community News - March 2016: Don't Miss These NEW Anniversary Events!

Dragons, Dragons, Dragons![edit]

Dragons, Dragons, Dragons! is both a group quest and a raid. If you form a raid, you get the raid version. It can appear at various times of the year. It first appeared during the 10th Anniversary.

The reward is two augments. One is Gold Plated Contact Spring Model ____, which fits most slots and the other is Gold Plated Spiked Gear Model ____, which fits in the Charm slot. The model of the Charm aug that you receive depends on the credited time on your account, unlike the other model augs that are based on how far you advance in the quest.

The rewards listed as "Model ____" are rewards where the better you do on the quest, the greater the reward and the higher the model number. For example, Model XX (twenty) is better then Model XIX (nineteen). You can not have two of the same name but of different models. You can destroy them and at any time just request new ones from Distribution Facilitator XCV in the Plane of Knowledge, who will always give you the highest models you are entitled to.

Items[edit]

Here are some useful items that may be obtained only during the anniversaries.

Fabled mob drops


Quest items

Celebratory goods[edit]
