- Many new achievements have been added for quests belonging to each of the original starting cities on Norrath!
- - You can find these achievements under The Hero's Journey >> Quests.

- Replay timers will now apply their full duration upon completion of their associated task/quest.

- - Once a player is above level 40, their secondary specialization skill cap (from Secondary Forte) will be set to 50 skill points below the primary cap, while tertiary specializations are 100 points below the primary skill cap. This should smooth the difference in skill values from level 40 to 120.
- - Characters over level 90 who had high third, fourth, and fifth specialization skills have had those skills updated to be below the tertiary cap. You will have to intentionally improve your specialization skill again. See Ostorm in the Temple of Solusek Ro to reorder your skills.

- - - Special damage targets - Greater Akheva, Draz Nurakk, and Zek.

April 7, 2022 - Producers Letter + new TLP

It's been 23 years since this grand journey called EverQuest was launched, and I'd like to take a moment to pause and reflect on all the things we've accomplished together. We've defeated powerful foes and we've brought balance; we've traversed, explored, and collected experiences during 28 expansions in which we traveled to the moon, assaulted the gods across their planes, met with beings of alternate realities, and defended against the chaos of Discord. We've also had our fair share of tribulations through the friends we've lost and the heartache we've borne. Through it all, you showed up and met the call. Ultimately, and possibly most importantly, we've found family. So, thank you for being an integral part of us and a part of Clan Darkpaw.

Earlier this year, we experimentally released the 2022 roadmap. Thank you for your warm reception to the idea and for your thoughtful comments. If you missed that, the original article is at EQ Roadmap 2022. Since then, we've delivered on it plus a plethora of smaller fixes and improvements. You can read more about each one in the links below.

2022 Roadmap Update:

    Completed:
        January:
            Community Resource Council Application Relaunch - We re-launched and no we haven't forgotten about it. We're still in the vetting process due to the overwhelming interest in the program.
            Monthly Game Update Notes
        February:
            Erollisi Day
            64-Bit Servers and Clients Release to Live Servers
            Monthly Game Update Notes
        March:
            23rd Anniversary
            Brew Day
            Stomples Day
            Bristlebane Day
            Monthly Game Update Notes
    Coming up soon:
        April:
            Anniversary Part 2 - Two new missions on April 20, 2022 and a return of the 5th to 13th-anniversary events from April 12, 2022 through the end of the anniversary events May 10, 2022, at 11:00 p.m. PDT.
            New Classic Achievements - Adding achievements for many original quests in EverQuest's starting cities.
        May:
            Mercenary Rank Simplification - Simplify mercenaries down to the two ranks primarily in use and remove the quest line requirements for obtaining them.
            New Tempest Festival Event
            New Progression Servers
        June
            Server Merge - Merging the Phinigel and Miragul servers to Vox.

You might be wondering what the rulesets for the new Time-Locked Progression Servers will be. Well, wait no further. We're proud to announce that the new names and rulesets will be: Vaniki, a Level Locked Progression server, and Yelinak, a more traditional progression server similar to the rules for Mangler. We're planning on unlocking those servers on May 25, 2022, at 12:00 p.m. PDT.*

Vaniki will open with Gates of Discord available and a level cap of 40. Then, over time, we will unlock new level caps along with the new expansions. In general, expansions will open when the level cap is 10 levels below the original level cap of the expansions. In many cases, this will cause multiple expansions to unlock on the same day. Once level 60 is reached, the next level change is eight weeks later if more than one expansion opens, and four weeks if only one expansion opens.

The currently planned (subject to change) unlock schedule for Vaniki is:

    Open at level 40 with expansions up to Gates of Discord unlocked
    Four weeks later: level 50 unlocks
    Two weeks later: level 55 unlocks
    Four weeks later: level 60 unlocks along with expansions up to Prophecy of Ro
    Eight weeks later: level 65 unlocks along with expansions up to The Buried Sea
    Eight weeks later: level 70 unlocks along with Secrets of Faydwer
    Four weeks later: level 75 unlocks along with expansions up to Underfoot
    Eight weeks later: level 80 unlocks along with House of Thule
    Four weeks later: level 85 unlocks along with Veil of Alaris
    Four weeks later: level 90 unlocks along with expansions up to Call of the Forsaken
    Eight weeks later: level 95 unlocks along with expansions up to Empires of Kunark
    Eight weeks later: level 100 unlocks along with expansions up to The Burning Lands
    Eight weeks later: level 105 unlocks along with expansions up to Claws of Veeshan
    Eight weeks later: level 110 unlocks along with Terror of Luclin
    Eight weeks later: level 115 unlocks
    Eight weeks later: level 120 unlocks

Note: When expansions unlock on the same day, the first unlocks at approximately 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time, and each additional expansion approximately one hour after the previous. Future expansions will unlock as appropriate to the schedule above.

Challenge achievements will also be available. If you participate in a chosen event and defeat it when you are at a certain level, you will gain a reward that you can use on any character on the same account. For example, defeat Cazic Thule at level 40, Meldrath at level 70, or Griklor at level 105.
To make these goals more attainable, many level restrictions will be relaxed on this server, allowing players to use items they normally could not and land spells on NPCs far above your level. Zone level restrictions will also be relaxed, but not removed.

Yelinak is a traditional progression server using the new unlock schedule generally requested by progression server players. Yelinak opens at the original EverQuest then unlocks with the following schedule:

    Four weeks later: Ruins of Kunark
    Eight weeks later: Scars of Velious
    Eight weeks later: Shadows of Luclin
    Eight weeks later: Planes for Power and Legacy of Ykesha
    Twelve weeks later: Lost Dungeons of Norrath
    Four weeks later: Gates of Discord
    At this point the schedule becomes consistent. Enjoy expansions for twelve weeks when a new level cap is unlocked, and eight weeks in expansions where the level cap stays the same.

In case you missed it, we are seeking new talent and need your help to continue delivering and strengthening our paths to the future. If you have ever wanted to be a part of creating the EQ experiences you love, check out the list of positions that we're hiring for at Darkpaw on this page. We love having applicants who love our game!

March 21, 2022 - Stomples Day + Bonuses

Hop into the fun as you explore Norrath for bunny-born eggs and something new!

Spring is in the air and it's that time of year to celebrate Stomples Day! Grundle Cogwelder continues to be befuddled by the stories of bunnies coming from eggs and would like you to investigate this ever-so-strange phenomenon. You can find him in the Plane of Knowledge where you can offer your help and maybe even earn a reward. Oh, and there is something new for this year, too!

Mei Gacierbane and Seymour Saxifragus Novitiate of Stomples can be found in the Eastern Wastes. Mei has been hard at work getting the camp in order—she takes her spring cleaning very seriously. While Seymour enjoys basking in the clean crisp air and keeping Mei company. Regretfully he has noticed that the snow dervishes have been stirred up and is seeking adventurers to get to the bottom of this dusty situation.

On top of that debacle, the mystery egg dropper has now scattered jellybeans throughout the Eastern and Western Wastes. Make sure you collect them all!

Stomples Day celebrations started this morning and will end on April 18, 2022 at 11:00 p.m. PDT. And just like last year, on April 15, 2022 we're crankin' up bonuses for faction gains, XP gains, and how often rares will spawn by 50%! Those bonuses end when the event ends on April 18. Enjoy!

March 16, 2022 - EQ Anniversary + Bonuses

EverQuest is turning 23 years old today! (Yes, 23 years of questing, raiding, tradeskilling and adventuring—can you believe it?!) In celebration of our anniversary, we've prepared a new mission, some new quests, a new raid, and achievements you can earn from now and until May 10, 2022, 11:00 p.m. PDT. Oh, and until April 20, 2022, 11:00 p.m. PDT, we have a little surprise gift for you, too, just for logging in* and celebrating with us. Plus, XP gain has been set to 150% until March 31, 2022, 11:59 p.m. PDT. On top of all that, we're also running a sweepstakes until Friday, March 25, 2022, 11:00 p.m. PDT which you can find and enter through our official Anniversary landing page.


New for this year:

Quest - The Known Laws of Aviation
 Giraga the troll has come to the sphinxes for information. Giraga asked a warrior in her town to train her to be as strong as him. He laughed and told her, 'mebbe when fish fly.' Giraga has never seen a flying fish, so she has gone to the sphinxes for help. They gave her a book full of riddles and, presumably, solving them will lead her to flying fish.

Quest - Paintings Playing Poker
 Big Slick Jones loves his poker, and one of his early poker memories is the stories that would be told about the crows playing poker at his hometown tavern, getting him interested in the craft. He'd love to hear more about the other paintings around Norrath and if they're still up.

Quest - Death Finds a Way
 Krastoraab, Acolyte of the Cycle, has a story that he wishes to tell any who is willing to hear it. A story about the cycle of life, death, and everything in between. He needs the help of several spirits who have since passed, and he is waiting for their cycle to begin anew.

Mission - Beyond Espoir
 You'll pick up a quest from Krastoraab who will send you out to meet several disciples of the cycle. It'll then be up to you to fight each of the disciples in order to understand the importance of the cycle. There are lots of steps to tackle, but the rewards will be worth it.

Raid - Mad Emperor
 Rumors have been spreading about activity in Karnor's Castle. Eerie green lights, screams . . . stuff like that. Not that these things never happen in the castle, but never this frequently!

Returning events:

 Looking for adventures that are over level 100? Some of the previous top hits included Sailor Twift with her Riveting Tales. Don’t have time to help spread the Unity among the Gnolls? Head to the Plane of Knowledge and speak with Maitreya the Maitre D`. He needs some help making a Fancy Feast.
 Not quite up to the level 100+ quests? Don't worry, there are a bunch of lower-level quests. If you are not ready to head out for summer, stop by Geia Korrel and head back to school with School Supplies. Or if helping a lovesick Iksar is more to your liking, speak with an Emissary of Erollisi in the Plane of Knowledge.
 No party is complete without eating some delicious Platinum Anniversary Cake in scenic locations. While you're out in the world adventuring, take the time to explore over seventeen years of anniversary content.


It's a great time to explore Norrath like never before and celebrate our birthday! Speak with the Mechanical Fortune Teller in Plane of Knowledge for details on these past and current celebrations. Hop in, strap on your armor and weapons, and have fun!

Follow us on social media: Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

*Surprise gift only available to active All Access members.

- Augments awarded by Terror of Luclin achievements will now require a Class XXI solvent to remove them.
- Shadow Broadsword Ornament no longer looks like a katar when applied to a hand-to-hand weapon.
- Snowstorm weapon ornamentations now only have 1-hand, 2-hand, bow and shield requirements.
- Many weapon ornaments will now fit in more items. Restrictions have been relaxed.

- Corrected an issue where the quest "Organ Trail" would be impossible for a high level character to complete.
- Doomshade - Put in a speculative fix for possible instance of Boom Shade being cast twice. Note that Shade's Doom is cast on two targets at a time, and so the spell can be doomed twice at the same time from different targets.
- Rabbits found in The Eastern Wastes of modern Velious and the Basilica of Adumbration on modern Luclin now correctly count towards the Slayer achievement, Pesticide.
- City zones - Fixed an issue with Santug Claugg spawning during the Frostfell celebration event.

- Beastlord - Increased the mana cost and damage dealt by Frozen Blight.
- Berserker - The description for Axe of Xin Diabo now refers to the correct item name.
- Druid - Slightly altered the AC of Opaline Blessing so it overwrites and blocks Opaline Skin. Adjusted the blockers so it will block Righteousness, Stormwall Keeper, and Hand of the Stormwall Keeper.
- Druid - Players who have already claimed ranks 2 or 3 of Sootheseance will have the appropriate rank of Moonwhisper Crystals added to their spellbook. Players who have already claimed ranks 2 or 3 of Cinch of Ro will have the appropriate rank of Howling Hail added to their spellbook.

 
*** NPCs ***
- Ka Vethan raid basepop will no longer respawn.
- Netherbians in the raid instance of Umbral Plains can now see invisible and not invisibility to undead, as befits the undead they are.

- The faction for Faeries in the Greater and Lesser Faydarks now has the updated spelling.


*** Progression Servers ***
- Removed the player cap for Muramite Proving Grounds.
- Players on Agnarr can now transfer to Mangler, Rizlona, and Aradune.


*** Miscellaneous ***
- Made the following improvements to the logic used when entering a zone with multiple instances:
- - Players in a raid will be put into the base instance of a zone unless their reason for zoning requires otherwise, such as being resurrected or teleporting to a campfire.
- - Players will enter the same zone as their group, even if no group member is in the destination zone. There is still a very small chance the group is split if a new instance spawns while the group is zoning.
- - Teleportation spells such as Tranquility Portal will always send you to the base zone. Visions of Argan (cast by Baraguj Szuul in Plane of Torment) and Evacuation spells will send you to the same zone.

- Corrected the position of the elevator in the Castle of Mistmoore.
- Heroic characters can no longer be sacrificed for Essence Emeralds until they reach level 86.


*** UI ***
- The links generated from clicking Link All in the Loot Window are now complete and less broken.
- Added additional loading screen tips to describe Membership Perks.
- Updated the text of the help page for the server select screen's chat window.
- Updated the Options window to consistently show the Target Extended Target keybinds.

January 19, 2022 - EQ Road Map 2022

As an experiment, we're trying something different this year. We're posting our development roadmap for 2022. As far as we know, this is the first time we’ve publicly laid out our major plans like this. Before we get to that, however, we'd like to highlight some of the things that we accomplished in 2021.

2021 was a whirlwind of a year. We celebrated our 22nd Anniversary with a special sweepstakes for a one-of-a-kind Firiona Vie statue, in addition to in-game bonuses and a new fez party hat. Later in May, we embarked on our experimental Random Loot Servers: Mischief and Thornblade. We also released the Item Compare system to allow you to more quickly compare your currently equipped items with other items. May was a busy month and we also launched new hunter achievements for our older expansions. In July, Overseer got a large update with new quests and agents. In October, we released the Membership Perks program. In November, we released the EverQuest Original Soundtrack on Black Vinyl. December saw the ship of the 28th expansion: Terror of Luclin! For those of you that participated in the expansion beta, you also got to see a pre-release candidate for our servers and clients 64-bit port.

We're excited to share our plans with you. Please remember that these are our high-level goals and expected delivery dates and do not list everything we will be doing. We will be working on other updates to the game, fixing issues, and making "quality of life" improvements (such as UI tweaks, etc.). We hope giving you a general snapshot of the roadmap that we are striving to complete this year is something you'd like to see from us moving forward; otherwise, please let us know if it's something you never want to see us do. Without further ado, here are our big plans for EverQuest 2022 and beyond!
