September 1, 2015 - Join Devs on Test!

Norrathians! We need your help!

This Thursday, September 3, the Dev team will be on the Test Server and they need YOU to log in and join them! The special test period will take place from 12:00PM - 4:00PM Pacific Time. In addition to helping test some of the core tech work being done, the Devs have some fun events and extra stuff planned.

Choose the Live server character you want to test with, log on that character, and then type /testcopy. Your character will be immediately copied to our Test Server.

NOTE: If you already have a character on the Test Server with the same name, using /testcopy will overwrite that character.

How do I get to the Test Server?

Glad you asked! Here's what you need to do:

    Open the EverQuest Launchpad
    In the lower left hand corner, look for "Version: Live" and click "Live"
    From the drop down menu under "Select Game Version" select "Test"
    Click "Apply" and your file list will begin to update
    Click "Play" and hop on in!

We hope to see you in-game on the Test Server this Thursday, September 3!

Greetings Norrath!

We will be disabling paid character transfers from Ragefire and Lockjaw starting this Wednesday at noon PDT. This is required as part of the preparation for the Ragefire progression server vote results next week particularly if the server votes to proceed with the expansion.

Transfers from Ragefire to other servers will still be available.

August 24, 2015 - Create Fake Links Tool

Making Fake Links in EverQuest has been increasingly popular among the players over the years.  Many people like to use Fake Links to add color to pulling messages, assist messages, or just for fun.

We've created a tool to help players create Fake Item Links.  But that's not all, we are finally revealing how to create Fake Achievment Links, and Fake NPC Dialogue Links!  Our new all in one tool will allow you to create all of these links.

I personally enjoy the Fake NPC Dialogue links.  They create the light blue text that NPC's give when you hail them to begin a quest.  If someone clicks on your Fake NPC Dialogue Link, their character will automatically repeat the linked text in /say.

You can access this new tool in our Articles section, or by Clicking Here.  There's also a great how-to guide, which explains everything you need to know in order to set up these links!

Post your screen shots here of your fun Fake Links, or pop in our Serverwide channel and show them to us!  To join our channel from in game, simply type:
/join serverwide.eqresource:eqresource

August 21, 2015 - Kunark unlock vote soon for RF (few months for LJ)

It's that time for the Ragefire progression server... the voting period to unlock the Ruins of Kunark is almost upon us!

Starting around Midnight Pacific Time on the morning of Monday, August 24, 2015, Ragefire players will be able to vote to unlock Kunark for their server. This vote will last for two weeks. Once the vote starts, any character that is level 30 or higher can go to the Priest of Discord to submit their vote.

After two weeks, if a majority of the server votes to unlock Kunark, that content will unlock at Midnight Pacific Time on the morning of Monday, September 7. If a majority of the server does NOT vote to unlock the Ruins of Kunark on Ragefire, this vote will reoccur every two weeks until the vote passes.

Special note: Once the vote passes, some NPCs, boats, or other game features may require an hour or so to pop up in-game. Paid transfers from Ragefire to Lockjaw will also be closed during this window in preparation for the content unlock, and the last day for transfers is planned for Monday, August 31.

Lockjaw Players: Due to the time that the raid content was cleared on this server, your Kunark vote is scheduled to start on Tuesday, December 1, 2015.

How will you vote, when the time to unlock the Ruins of Kunark comes to YOUR progression server?

August 20, 2015 - EQResource's 4th Anniversary + Housing Contest

Four years ago today we first launched, and we had no idea what to expect.  Prior to launch, we spent a month preparing what little content we started out with.  Just the House of Thule expansion, which had already been released for nearly a year.  Our aim was to create an EverQuest information resource for the players, maintained by dedicated active players of the game, without any personal bias or guild influence.

Over our 4 year journey our little website has become more popular than we ever expected.  It's motivated us to build on our way of sharing information and data - each and every new expansion that we've covered we have added new features and updated our page layouts to be easier to use and more informative.  You may have already noticed we have been undergoing the long and tedious process of updating our old content to use our new page display styles, and displayed data.  We will continue to work on this until all of our content has a standard layout and format to it.

We have a few new features we will be releasing over the next couple weeks.  We hope our users take advantage of them and find them useful.  Be on the lookout for more information and announcements as they are ready to be released!

We've also set up another Housing Contest!  Help us celebrate our 4 year Anniversary by decorating your Player Yard and Player house!  We will take entries for this contest through September 20th, and announce 4 winners on September 23rd.  Don't miss your chance to have fun decorating, and win some Daybreak Cash in doing so!  You can find all the details for that contest on our 4th Anniversary Housing Contest thread.

We would like to thank all of our EQResource users for supporting us and making us a popular EQ information website over the years.  And a special thanks to our Premium Members who help fund our server, hosting, and domain bills.  We wouldn't be able to keep the site online and updated without each of you!

 - Riou and Rorce
