    We have been killing since reboot at giants fort in GD and havent seen a Memorandum of Dwarf slaying yet. Was it that rare or are they not in by any chance? The events are not mentioned in the release notes. Just asking, and thanks for all the work!

    It sure was nerfed. I turned in 16 weapons, and got 3 x Vial of swirling smoke, 4 HQ pelts, 1 medium pelt, 3 HP/mana necks, some LOre messages and rubicite boots. Pretty frustrating.

    The anniversary events usually run for one full reset, so I'd expect this one to end with the next patch. That'll be around 10 AM EST on Wednesday, 1/9.

    I know XP bonuses will never get the green light again, but would you be open to simply lowering the rarity a tad on rare spawns and/or rare drops for these two weeks next year? I'm not talking anything big, just simply if it was set at 5%, increase to 10% type of thing, 1% to 2%, etc. Obviously cut off with 10% being the max that can be doubled, so nothing would increase to over 20%. I think it may help people finish older quests or camps they've been meaning to.

    yeah I may add more items along with the guise and increase that chance since the Token chances added more to the rarity of it for next year. I'll see about removing the pelts also.

    Ok, there seem to be many questions about the anniversary quests. It is hard to get hard facts, so here it goes. All stuff is quoted from this board, so all praise goes to the original posters.

    1st year Anniversary

    The Servitor of Gala's coins

    Talk to the Servitor of Gala between the soulbinder and the Nexus stone in PoK, and he'll ask you to retrieve his coins. They're scattered all over Norrath -- on Phinny, in the Planes of Fear/Hate/Sky, on solb/lguk nameds, and so on (check the AllaClone list I linked). Turn in a Coin of Gala and you'll get a reward -- including, perhaps, this big ol' bag. (like a Tinkering bag):


    Coin of Gala




    2nd year Anniversary
    https://www.takproject.net/forums/i...kdown-of-takp-2-year-anniversary-events.7849/

    Talk to this halfling near the PoK main bank, and he'll give you a list of weapons he wants you to collect. Turn in a weapon and you'll get some number of Action Tokens in denominations A, B or C. Turn in the tokens to Sheriff Roglio in the PoK dark bank for a random quest reward (potions, items, or perhaps a custom title?).
    • Coral Trident - Barnacle Bones in Dagnor
    • Polished Granite Tomahawk - Grenix Mucktail in East Karana or Highpass Hold
    • Langseax or Langseax of the Wolves - Langseax quest in Halas
    • Runed Oak Bow - Coloth Meadowgreen or Kroldir Thunderhoof in South Karana
    • Bone Bladed Claymore - a shadowknight in Befallen
    • Cold Iron Morning Star - a goblin preacher in Permafrost
    • Mystical Claws of Jojo - Jo Jo in Kerra Isle
    • Glowing Iron Pike - Garton Viswin in Mistmoore
    • Polished Steel Dirk - a spectre in the Qeynos Aqueducts
    • Fighting Baton - lumpy goo in the Crypt of Dalnir
    • Fleshripper - Solusek kobold king in Nagafen's Lair
    • Kicsh Der Pavz - Tesch Val Deval'Nmak in Splitpaw
    • Lamentation Blade - Estrella of gloomwater in Kedge Keep
    • Slime Crystal Staff - King Xorbb in his Gorge
    • Axe of the Slayers - Grazhak the Berzerker in Rathe Mountains
    • Runed Falchion - a froglok crusader in lguk
    • Blackened Alloy Longsword - various pickclaw in Runnyeye
    • Blood Fork - spectral knight/protector in Karnor's Castle
    • Messenger of the Queen - Queen Dracnia in Crystal Caverns
    • Spirit Reaver - Jelquar the Soulslayer in Stonebrunt Mountains
    • Pugius - tormented dead and lesser blade fiend in Unrest
    • Bargyn's Torch - Bargynn in Kurn's Tower
    • Glowing Wooden Crook - Lockjaw in Oasis of Marr
    • Axe of the Iron Back - mountain/forest giants in Frontier Mountains, Burning Woods, Dreadlands
    • Bow of the Underfoot - rock golems in the Hole
    It seems devs have nerfed the rewards, I got many pelts and bricks for 16 turn-ins. Some people talked about getting an instant gate potion - I did not see it. Rob stated that the really good stuff drops off the tier 3 type weapons, but I dont know what that means exactly.

    3rd year Anniversary
    TAKP clone:
    https://www.takproject.net/allaclone/item.php?id=32591
    A memo about dwarf slaying has to be found and turned into a dwarf near GD stone. The best reward is:
    https://www.takproject.net/allaclone/item.php?id=32592
    Priceless for most non porting or binding classes, worth all the hassle.
    Also great for any non porting, binding class, like necro, mage, BL, cleric to bind e.g. Sebilis, and port to Thurg once done.
    One of the best items ever.
    Other prices are 10 dose thorn potions, 10 x Gate potions to Swamp and minor or major gems.
    My experience after this year's event: I turned in about 80 memos, got no brick, many 10 x swamp gate potions, endless gems. Sigh.




    4th year Anniversary
    TAKP forum link:
    https://www.takproject.net/forums/i...4th-year-anniversary-events.13214/#post-74408

    It seems like there is a big, fat Orge next to Main Bank and if you give him 4 large Acrylia Bricks, he will buff you with POTG, Aego, KEI etc.
    The problem is, these sell for about 30pp each (?), so that is 120pp for a random buff. Doesn't sound that great.

    These two aren't part of the event anymore. I blame Nukem, and maybe Swiftbow :p

    I turned in close to ~250 tokens last year and didn't see a guise for what it's worth.
