    [IMG]Come join in the celebration and receive some much-deserved gifts.

    Twenty-four years. Let that sink in. That’s an incredible number of quests completed, achievements earned, baddies destroyed, zones traveled, items and commodities crafted, and everything else under the Norrathian sun. Even Lendiniara the Keeper, featured in this year’s Anniversary key-art, smiles indulgently at your progress and success.

    And we continue to do this because of you!

    Every single one of you inspires us to keep developing new content, items, and just good old fashioned gaming fun. We cannot thank you enough for being part of the EverQuest family! We've even updated our Anniversary page with the fun details just for you. It’s with all this in mind that we offer some amazing gifts.

    All players will receive the following:
    • 50% bonus to experience gains! (Bonus ends on April 1, 2023, at 1:00 a.m. PDT.)
    • Dashing Feathered Cap for all your characters. (Available until April 20, 2023, at 11:00 p.m. PDT.)*

    All-Access Members will also receive the following:
    • Celebratory Opal Stein Ornament, a weapon ornament for all your characters. (Available until April 20, 2023, at 11:00 p.m. PDT.)*
    • Goblet of Adventure III (one per account; available until April 20, 2023, at 11:00 p.m. PDT)**
    • A new title for all your characters, “the Commemorator”. (Available until April 20, 2023, at 11:00 p.m. PDT.)*

    What’s new for this year:
    • Mission: Reetuk the Inexorable
      • Historian Graya is interested in the history of the Spine ogres and is looking for adventurers to help. Based on information she read in the Lineage of the Nokk Ogres, and with your help, Graya will guide you through exploring Blightfire Moors and encountering Reetuk the Inexorable.
    • Quests:
      • Footloose and Fancy Free – Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. But do you know from what all heroes can benefit? Music! Seek Erol Xybella in the Plane of Tranquility to get started.
      • Stones of the Unknown – The disheveled erudite, Talesiyn the Driven, seeks to learn more about the standing stones in the Feerrott region. Could the rumors of a long-dead race be true?
      • Misgnomer – They call him the Pirate Captain Nalot, but he's hoping you can help him prove his true identity. You can find him in Steamfont Mountains.

    Returning events:
    • All the quests, the mission, and the raid that were added last year.
    • Looking for adventures that are over level 100? Some of the earlier top hits included Sailor Twift with her Riveting Tales. Don’t have time to help spread Unity among the Gnolls? Head to the Plane of Knowledge and speak with Maitreya the Maitre D`. He needs some help making a Fancy Feast.
    • Not quite up to the level 100+ quests? Don't worry, there are a bunch of lower-level quests. If you are not ready to head out for summer, stop by Geia Korrel and head back to school with School Supplies. Or if helping a lovesick Iksar is more to your liking, speak with an Emissary of Erollisi in the Plane of Knowledge.
    • No party is complete without eating some delicious Platinum Anniversary Cake in scenic locations. While you're out in the world adventuring, take the time to explore over nineteen years of anniversary content.
    Lastly, we are also unvaulting the Past Heritage Crates. You can find the Tier`Dal (Dark Elf), Ayr`Dal (Half Elf), Iksar, Northman (Barbarian), Gnome, Trollish, Human, Dwarf, Halfling, Fier`Dal (Wood Elf), Ogre, and Erudite heritage crates on the marketplace from now until April 1, 2023, 1:00 a.m. PDT.
    There’s no better way to celebrate two-dozen years of existence than with you. And we’d have it no other way. Cheers, Norrathians, and here’s to all the memories—past, present, and future!

    Way to go flagging stupid vanity items no no drop and no destroy! How are you supposed to get them out of your inventory if you don't want them?

    Shouldn't the 6th anniversary quest be avail on Mischief or is there something I am missing?

    The art on those steins is ridiculously impressive. Who's responsible for that one?

    Would be great if the Celebratory Opal Stein Ornament was flagged as "weapon" instead of 1h/h2h so us 2h users could use as well :) Glad to finally have an ornament to go with my Brew Day greens!

    Since you've added the golden HF armor from RAF to the market (special occasions) could you consider adding Resilient Adventurer's Crystal as well? WTB more trophies with AC....
  15. Loup Garou De loop de loop

    They added Golden HF now in the marketplace? Or just in the past. Not clear but English is not my language

    Everquest on Facebook is saying today is the last day for these? One of you has the date wrong, now is a month early.

    I don't know what you're talking about.

  18. CatsPaws Boy, that one flew over your head

    It was misread. They put up a post that said something on the line of "get it today" as a reminder. There was nothing about it stopping today.

    or it was fixed after the post was made. You make the call:p
  19. Wyre Wintermute I'm just a butterly dreaming I'm a man

    They will and have put it up for a limited time purchase, same with the blue-gold gnomework armor.
