This is an Anniversary solo quest, only available during EverQuest's Anniversary Celebration. It was first introduced during the 12th Anniversary.

Your Location is -2730.25, 2326.86, 4.69
You say, 'Hail, Seeker Nerattan'
Seeker Nerattan sighs, obviously displeased with something, 'Have you seen them? ... No, I suppose you wouldn't, or couldn't have. Dastardly constructs of that cursed Maiden, if only the Burning Prince could exact swift revenge on them... Perhaps you could [assist] me in my endeavors here today?'
You say, 'I can assist'
Seeker Nerattan nods, his mood slightly elevated by your willingness to speak with him, 'The miserable [mortal enemies] of the temple set upon me as I was transporting a number of relics back from various planes on Norrath. Now I face the prospect of returning to Tazgar empty handed...'
Your Location is -2321.65, 2424.61, 4.69
You say, 'Mortal enemies?'
Seeker Nerattan nods. His face becomes contorted with an expression of bitter hatred, 'Blasted shadowed men, everywhere and nowhere at once! It is not as if exacting my revenge on them takes precedence over returning the relics to our temple though. If you are [willing] to assist me in retrieving the relics, I would be most grateful.'
You say, 'I am willing'
Seeker Nerattan says 'Very well, I expect most of the artifacts to be strewn about somewhere in the neighborhood. There may be more than one of each type, but as long as I return to Tazgar with at least one complete set I should be okay.'
You have been assigned the task 'Hunt of the Shards'.
