McQuibble Farm

Known Bug: Having two versions of this quest series in your completed journal will make them not repeatable once per year. You will have to go into your Antonica completed quests category in the quest journal and highlight the old version of the duplicate quests. This will remove them for you automatically.

Petrified Pumpkin Pies

  1. Talk to Ponchy Shorttoe at /loc -1891, -38, -557 in Windstalker Village in Antonica to begin the quest
  2. Head south from Ponchy and go the McQuibble Farm
  3. Enter the farmhouse and your quest will update around /loc -1857,-21,-210
  4. Investigate the southwest fields: click on a clump of soil around /loc -1689, -16, -77
  5. Investigate the northeast fields: click on a clump of soil around /loc -2004,-13,-276
  6. Speak to the McQuibbles and others in Windstalker Village:

    • Speak to Old Man McQuibble at /loc -1899, -36, -609
    • Speak to Merle Trevine at /loc -1934, -36, -602
  7. Return to Ponchy
  8. Speak with Professor Heribert; he will now offer the McQuibble’s Mystery quest

McQuibble’s Mystery

    2. Once it’s nighttime (at least 8pm game time), head over to McQuibble’s Farm and approach the farmhouse around /loc -1859, -22, -216
    3. Some animated and burning scarecrows will appear and begin speaking; this will update your quest
    4. Return to Professor Heribert at Windstalker Village
    5. Find and speak to Shanty Gaggleshorn at /loc -2068, 26, -124, on a rocky hill southeast of the McQuibble Fields
    6. Wait until daytime (at least 7am game time) and return to McQuibble’s farmhouse
    7. Walk into the farmhouse around /loc -1862,-22,-213 and automatically receive a gleaming medallion
    8. Take the dirt path northwest of the farmhouse
    9. You will see a corpse and three bales of hay in the road ahead, then four crazed scarecrows will spawn around /loc -1748,-26,-294
    10. Return to Professor Heribert; he will now offer the Scary Scarecrows quest

      11:40 am Pacific – Down. After about an hour of play on one character I logged to another and got dropped back to LOGIN. Okay. Attempt to Log in.. and LaunchPad shows an invalid login or password. Upon attempting to log to Support: “The system has encountered an error. Please come back and try again later.” The preceding is a statement of fact. The following is an opinion: Perhaps a warning of about a week..PLAINLY posted in several locations… followed by a week long FULL SHUT DOWN while the chaos ensues..instead of pretending everything is going fine, launching new expansions, asking for pre-order commitments from players, engaging in holiday events and moving offices all at the same time.. It is no wander (and this is a metaphor) that I cringe when you offer to change a light bulb: The house is falling down!

      Cyliena, please would you consider putting up a table with this info? The Quest Tracker from Zam was an essential part of every EQ2 holiday for me :smile:

        Oh yes, knew I was missing something. I’ll see if there’s a way we can get a printable of those event trackers over here. Since there were no new quests this year, last year’s NotD tracker on ZAM will still work for now. :)

      A Nightmarish Illness is bugged. The “a grime covered hand holding a key” did not drop from the mobs in the 2nd graveyard, making this quest uncompletable for me.

        I thought that happened to me once, and it turned out I missed “waking up” one of the zombies. Another time I accidentally let the key rot on the corpse. If anything, leaving and re-entering the zone should usually fix it.
