EverQuest II Articles
Custom UIs will be disabled in Everquest 2 for an upcoming test, according to a forum update by Daybreak.
Tis the season (of Halloween events), and EverQuest II is joining in the fun again this year. Starting today, October 8th, and running through Friday, November 1st, players can join ghosts, ghouls and goblins in the "Nights of the Dead 2019" event.
EverQuest II's unannounced, yet upcoming expansion is getting a prelude event, one that will have players taking part in new quests and adventures in the historic MMO.
The summer edition of the EverQuest Producer's Letter is now live on the game's official site to provide a peek into what players can expect to come for the balance of summer 2019. This includes the summer arrival of Expert versions of Chaos Descending heroic dungeons, "best-in-slot items in Chaos Descending public quests starting June 18th, Nagafen PvP Server Season 1 ending on June 18th & Season 2 starting July 16th, game store Pride items, the Scorched Sky celebration & more.
Nagafen is the new EverQuest 2 PvP server that went live on March 16th. This is a "seasonal PvP server" where players may only have a single character and that will start with "classic" EQ2 with new content unlocking every month. There's no time to lollygag either as the server season only lasts for three months. Players will be able to check out and compete for a spot on the leaderboards and will be able to earn rewards based on placement at the end of the server run.
If you're looking to recapture the glory days of EverQuest II, you may want to check in on the Kaladim Time Locked Expansion Server. Kaladim launched yesterday starting with "vanilla" EQ2 and with expansions unlocking automatically every sixteen weeks. Players can collect some new achievements and Heritage Quests "on this server will not only provide the quest rewards, but an additional reward on EVERY server you play on".
As promised in last week's producer's letter, the EverQuest II team has laid out the first details about Nagafen, the seasonal PvP server. The server will be opening for beta testing soon with the lofty goal to "relive as much of the glory days of EverQuest II PvP as possible, and bring back the rakish spirit of the Nagafen community".
The EverQuest II team is ready to celebrate its elder sibling's 20th anniversary with some pretty sweet new things for its community too. Players will be able to take part in the Plane of Mischief event in March and a new "event server" called Nagafen will be introducing content sure to please old-school PvPers.
Daybreak Game Company has announced that pre-orders for the next EverQuest II expansion have opened ahead of the November 13th launch date. Those who purchase Chaos Descending will be granted immediate beta access.
From now through November 1st, ghosties and ghoulies and things that go bump in the night will be inhabiting EverQuest II thanks to the arrival of the Nights of the Dead event. There are lots of ways to get involved, whether crafting or grabbing a new recipe book or ghost hunting.
The EverQuest II team has announced the fifteenth expansion to the game, Chaos Descending. In it, players will be invited to "delve deeper into the Elemental Planes" where they'll encounter "some familiar and some not-so-familiar faces" as they work through " the Earthen Badlands, the Kingdom of Wind, through the Unresting Waters, the Burning Lands and the Great Library". Chaos Descending is anticipated to arrive in November.
The EverQuest 2 site has been updated with a new post to let players know they can receive a free level 100 Heroic Character between today and June 7th. "All existing accounts will be able to create a single level 100 heroic character" the post reads. The new character will be ready to roll and be gifted several items to assist along the way. Once created, players will also receive temporary access to the Planes of Prophecy expansion and the ability to level to 105.
The EverQuest 2 site has been updated with a pair of news items. First on normal live servers, Brewday has returned and will run through March 19th. Secondly, the Fallen Gate progression server will be updated today with the Echoes of Faydwer expansion that unlocks Alternate Advancement class trees and the Alternate Advancement cap has been raised to 100.
Everquest II players might have noticed that romance is in the air yet again as Erollisi Day has made its return to Norrath. From today through February 20th, players can take part in a number of "whimsical" events to earn a new achievement, new recipe scrolls and other new items.
