March 16, 2023 - EQ Anniversary + Bonuses

Twenty-four years. Let that sink in. That's an incredible number of quests completed, achievements earned, baddies destroyed, zones traveled, items and commodities crafted, and everything else under the Norrathian sun. Even Lendiniara the Keeper, featured in this year's Anniversary key-art, smiles indulgently at your progress and success.

And we continue to do this because of you!

Every single one of you inspires us to keep developing new content, items, and just good old fashioned gaming fun. We cannot thank you enough for being part of the EverQuest family! We've even updated our Anniversary page with the fun details just for you. It's with all this in mind that we offer some amazing gifts.

All players will receive the following:

    50% bonus to experience gains! (Bonus ends on April 1, 2023, at 1:00 a.m. PDT.)
    Dashing Feathered Cap for all your characters. (Available until April 20, 2023, at 11:00 p.m. PDT.)*

All-Access Members will also receive the following:

    Celebratory Opal Stein Ornament, a weapon ornament for all your characters. (Available until April 20, 2023, at 11:00 p.m. PDT.)*
    Goblet of Adventure III (one per account; available until April 20, 2023, at 11:00 p.m. PDT)**
    A new title for all your characters, "the Commemorator". (Available until April 20, 2023, at 11:00 p.m. PDT.)*

What's new for this year:

    Mission: Reetuk the Inexorable
        Historian Graya is interested in the history of the Spine ogres and is looking for adventurers to help. Based on information she read in the Lineage of the Nokk Ogres, and with your help, Graya will guide you through exploring Blightfire Moors and encountering Reetuk the Inexorable.
        Footloose and Fancy Free - Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. But do you know from what all heroes can benefit? Music! Seek Erol Xybella in the Plane of Tranquility to get started.
        Stones of the Unknown - The disheveled erudite, Talesiyn the Driven, seeks to learn more about the standing stones in the Feerrott region. Could the rumors of a long-dead race be true?
        Misgnomer - They call him the Pirate Captain Nalot, but he's hoping you can help him prove his true identity. You can find him in Steamfont Mountains.

Returning events:

    All the quests, the mission, and the raid that were added last year.
    Looking for adventures that are over level 100? Some of the earlier top hits included Sailor Twift with her Riveting Tales. Don't have time to help spread 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 nineteen years of anniversary content.

Lastly, we are also unvaulting the Past Heritage Crates. You can find the Tier`Dal (Dark Elf), Ayr`Dal (Half Elf), Iksar, Northman (Barbarian), Gnome, Trollish, Human, Dwarf, Halfling, Fier`Dal (Wood Elf), Ogre, and Erudite heritage crates on the marketplace from now until April 1, 2023, 1:00 a.m. PDT.

There's no better way to celebrate two-dozen years of existence than with you. And we'd have it no other way. Cheers, Norrathians, and here's to all the memories—past, present, and future!

*You must log onto each character during this time period to receive the item and title. The items will appear on your cursor, and the title will be available in the title window.
**You must log onto each account during this time period to receive the claim. You may access the potion in the claim window.

March 15, 2023 - Brew Day

Get those biceps ready because you’ve got some lifting to do!

What a time to hoist a frosty pint in celebration of Brell Serilis during Brew Day in EverQuest as all new adventures have been added to this storied, annual event! Grab your friends and guildmates, and head out into Norrath to down a few ales and accomplish these new feats. Here’s what’s new for this year:

Best Ships are Friendships

    Orr the Brave in Crescent Reach is celebrating all things brewing. He has a few quests that will have you gathering materials, hunting some pesky treants, creating brewing supplies, and finally, sharing delicious brew with friends. You’ll be handsomely rewarded for your efforts and for spreading Brew Day cheer.
    Questline is only accessible if your server has unlocked Seeds of Destruction.


    Just jump into the questline and you’ll receive all the achievements as you complete the quests!


    A mischievous Bixie Prankster has absconded with some vintage toy boats and stashed them all throughout Stone Hive. It’s up to you to find the boats and get ‘em back!

Cheers, friends! *Clink!* We hope Brew Day brings you much joy and many fun adventures. Brew Day started today, March 15, 2023, and ends on March 28, 2023 at 11:00 p.m. PDT so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for boats!

January 11, 2023 - EQ Roadmap 2023

Yup, the roadmap is back! Given all the positive reactions from the "experiment" we started last year we've decided to bring this back again for this year. Although before we dive into our plans for 2023, let's look at some of the things we accomplished in 2022...

In 2022, we delivered on every point in the roadmap (eventually). Our extended family that is EverQuest got to see the Community Resource Council come to fruition, 64-bit upgrades to servers and clients, our 23rd Anniversary celebration, many updated holiday in-game events, new progression servers, new classic achievements, the much-anticipated Heroic Characters update, an unbelievable and very humbling Extra Life response, and last but certainly not the least, the launch of Night of Shadows. We got a lot accomplished and now we're gearing up for another milestone-making year!

December 6, 2022 - Night of Shadows Launch

The Night of Shadows Launches!

Getting There
To get there you can go through the Cave in Terror of Luclin's Umbral Plains, this will lead you to the starting zone Firefall Pass. The Guild Hall portal takes you to Shar Vahl, Divided where you can buy your Spells and Teleports. The Teleports take you to Shadeweaver's Tangle. The Premium item port is to Ruins of Shadow Haven.

There is a Map Pack up, including the new Cave in Umbral Plains to get to Night of Shadows Zones

Tradeskill Depot
The big Feature of the expansion is the Tradeskill Depot.
-Inside of it you can place stackable tradeable tradeskill items, these can be stacked up to 99,999 per item.
-You have to be at a Bank to add or remove items from this
-You can use items from this at Tradeskill Containers for combines
-Like Overseer all characters on a Server can make use of the items in this
-This mostly only works with Known Recipes and not Experiment Recipes, those still need to be done manually
-There is a Guild Version, but Night of Shadows won't launch with this
-The Guild Version is supposed to be a purchase for to unlock when it launches in the future.
-The Personal Version is 250-490 slots depending on which Expansion Tier you have purchased. It is supposed to cost 499 DBC to add 20 slots to it, to a Max of 5000 Slots.

The Zones Deepshade and Darklight Caverns are locked behind When One Door Closes. This mission is needed to open the Door to get into Deepshade to continue on. Someone on the Server must have also done the Deepshade Partisans and talk to the Spirit next to the Darklight Caverns Zone Line to clear the Rocks to Click the Door to Zone In.
-Otherwise the rest of the Expansion is standard stuff that the previous few have done
-There was an 8th zone created for Night of Shadows, Hollowshade Moor, however it was not able to be completed in time, maybe a future release?

-There is a new Evolving Back piece item this year, Lucent Cloak of the Selenelion, that drops from the Ruins of Shadow Haven Mission, When One Door Closes.
-To go with the new Evolver, there are 4 new Stat Type 19 Augs as well that are tradeskill made from a piece that drops randomly off Raid Trash.
-The Ore system for Tradeskill Armor has changed this Expansion as well, now instead of a General Ore that can do everything, it is slot based items Apparitional pieces for Raid and Otherworldly pieces for Group
-The Darklight Caverns Mercenary Quests offer Faction to earn that can be pre-farmed for turn ins, these give some nice items if you are willing to run any combination of them 45 total times.
--21 Times = Great Tiger Spirit Familiar, a Pet Metamorph, you can flip between the 3 NPC models on the item itself
--31 Times = Spirit Drinker's Coating, an upgrade to the CotF Blood Drinker's Coating
--45 Times = Valia's Unyielding Bravery, an 8 Counter 100% Melee/DD/DoT absorb
