Prelude 2020: Haven Bound

With a HUGE thank you to Whilhelmina of the French-language EQ2 Artisans site for researching and coding this while Mum has been very slowly recovering from major surgery!

The 2020 prelude event to prepare for the next expansion will go live on Sept. 22, 2019. It contains one adventure quest for all level adventurers, 5 repeatable tradeskill quests and 5 new overseer quests. All quests will end when the expansion is released.

You will be busy defending the spires and helping the G.L.E.E.S.H. (Guild of Luclin Enthusiasts and Experts Supplying Help) in their quest to help rebuild Fordel Midst!

Where To Go

All quests are available from NPC's around the Wizard's Spires in Teren's Grasp (Kylong Plains).

You can do the quests at any level. You'll have to run the adventure prelude or the TS prelude to unlock the overseer quests.

The new currency, G.L.E.E.S.H. Mark, is doubled for members.

Adventure quest: The Not So Nice Yet Accurate Prophecies of Beckah Stormsong

Quest is given by Lusiri A'Fahmi (1991.24, 480.01, -859.20 ). It seems that spirits are attacking the spires and your help is needed to thwart them.

Your first mission will be to patrol one of the spires (it depends on your level and/or is random) then the Nektulos Spires. You'll get attacked by thrashing spirits (at-level mobs) then will have to investigate what Justan Cafferen, standing nearby, has to say (-295.07, -0.11, -679.31) who will talk to you about visions of his long lost ancestor... Head back to Lusiri to update her on the prophecy. You'll get the book as well as 5 marks for your troubles.

Completing the adventuring quest unlocks event mobs in various zones that you'll be able to farm for marks. You'll be able to find the mobs around the spires in Antonica, Commonlands, Feerrott, Sundered Frontier and Bonemire. Each mob spawns at-level and has roughly a 50% chance of dropping a chest with 1 mark in it (2 for members).

Repeatable Tradeskill quests

There are 5 tradeskill quests available at all levels. All five NPC are busy working around the Teren's Grasp Spire, waiting for you. Their goal withing the G.L.E.E.S.H. is to produce materials to send to Luclin to reconstruct Fordel Midst.

Each quest will ask you to check the box nearby to know what to create. Main component is a "solidified ethereal filament" gathered 3 at a time in Teren's Grasp (same item as last year's prelude). You'll need 1 harvest per quest to make the 6 items (3 combines) asked for. Other components are raws from any tier and T2 fuel. Each quest rewards two marks.
You'll find a fuel merchant in the Crafter's Hall at the back: Gabin Baerea (2194, 483, -730 ).

Completing 25 tradeskill quests unlocks the achievement "G.L.E.E.S.H. Supporter" which awards the suffix title "G.L.E.E.S.H. Supporter".

Here is the list of quest NPC:

  • Edrin Tarbeck (woodworker; 1958.08, 480.01, -829.71): Offers the quest "Woodworkers Cutting the Workload"
  • Gerry Stumbletoe (provisioner; 1947.24, 480.01, -841.50): Offers the quest "Provisioners Fuel the Forces"
  • Calla Bronzeleaf (tailor; 1948.81, 480.01, -872.52): Offers the quest "Tailors on the Task"
  • Velatha Zofriel (sage; 1955.99, 480.01, -861.81): Offers the quest "Sage Knowledge Applied"
  • Udella Kegmail (smithy; 1963.65, 480.55, -844.41): Offers the quest "Smithing the Hours away"

Warning: Be super-careful! Put what you want to craft with in your inventory or it'll pull the smallest stack first (usually rares) and if you're crafting from a depot, it'll use all your rares first from the depot!

Overseer Quests

Note: The ability to run the overseer quests unlocks after you complete either the adventuring quest, or the 5 tradeskill quests.

There are 5 new overseer quests available. You can get them from Grigissa Khuskisth in Teren's Grasp (1985.25, 480.01, -788.79)
