EQ2 Icon Purple Shinies

There is a new collection in game! Trinkets: Excavation Trinkets Collection.

The purple shinies which give the excavation trinkets are not visible to the naked eye. In order to see the shinies you must be wearing an Excavation Helmet with the effect of Excavator’s Dedication. It is this which makes the question marks visible to you.

Note: This collection can not be completed at this time (directly after the launch of Game Update 49). Only the worn and broken trinkets are in game; stained and silvered trinkets are not yet available to be collected.

Jimbo McDaniel, the D.I.R.T.Y. Merchant at -1379,-168,-739 in Sinking Sands, has Excavation Helmets for sale but he will not deal with you until you have helped him deal with the curious monkeys. He has a series of four quests which scale to your level. Once completed, he will be happy to show you his wares for purchase.

The Excavation Helmet is available at a cost of 10 [D.I.R.T.Y. Money]. You gain [D.I.R.T.Y. Money] by doing the quests in the Encampment and Excavation sites.

The Live Event is split into two parts and only half of the collection items are currently available. The stained and silvered trinkets can not be harvested until the second half of the event.

Locations are the two excavation sites in Sinking Sands. There are three to four ?s scattered around each area with a respawn time of about four minutes.

The D.I.R.T.Y. Encampment is visible from the Sinking Sands dock, up on the ridge.

The D.I.R.T.Y. Excavation Site can be quickly reached from the Encampment by taking the purple carpet at -1386,-168,-740, next to Jimbo McDaniel.

There are 12 trinkets in total to collect. Only worn and broken trinkets are available during the first part of Live Update 49 (marked in bold). All of the trinkets will be available after the first half of the event.

  • small worn trinket
  • small broken trinket
  • small stained trinket
  • small silvered trinket
  • medium worn trinket
  • medium broken trinket
  • medium stained trinket
  • medium silvered trinket
  • large worn trinket
  • large broken trinket
  • large stained trinket
  • large silvered trinket

Update: The collection – all 12 trinkets – will remain available for harvesting after the event has finished. However, it will no longer be possible to get the helmet required to see them so only existing owners will be able to see and collect these shinies.
