April 20, 2018 - Bonus EXP weekend

Sometimes things just don't go as planned - on Wednesday, our live server patch was met with a number of issues that led to a lengthy downtime.
We appreciate you all being patient with us as we worked to bring the servers back up, and wanted to show our appreciation by granting all players some extra experience to make up for the lost game time.

From now through 11:59PM PT on Sunday, April 22, 2018, all players across all servers will receive 25% bonus experience!

*Please note that this won't be listed on the Event Calendar or the Alert Bar in-game, but the bonus will still be active.

Thanks for hanging in there with us!



Check this out and more in our EQ Calendar (Be sure to set it to your time zone [in settings on the Calendar] for your times!).

Update Notes:
April 18, 2018
_____________________
*** Highlights ***
- EverQuest will no longer run on Windows Vista or older operating systems. Please refer to the minimum system requirements on our website.
- Made a number of improvements to hotbars. See the UI section below for details.


*** Items ***
- Upgraded the model on Jeweled Sarnak Focus of the Elemental, Jeweled Hoarded Worker Sledgemallet, and Jeweled Hoarded Blood Orchid Katana to an equivalent model with particles.
- Changed Guardian's Boon to affect all combat skills and not only 1h blunt.
- Ingenious and Savvy Conflagrant Earrings now have the standard recast timer for Geomantra.
- Focused Strike of the Blood Orchid now checks against chromatic resists.
- The Skull of Null and Jeweled Skull of Null are now convertible items. One item is the full charm, the other is for clicking from inventory.
- - The equippable version requires that it is equipped for the click to work (This was true already due to it being a charm, though some caching would allow it to work if it was equipped then unequipped).
- - As a side effect, converting and converting back will fix the charms that are not working for players that had the Skull before the evolving data was attached.
- Corrected the names of Faycite Shards available from Ring of Scale vendors. Shards that change spell duration are now correctly called Durus and shards that change spell recast time are correctly called Tempus.
- Corrected errors in the lore and text for Cliff Stone, Scorpikis Worry Stone, Magma Stone, Enchanted Dragon Scale.
- Added stats, for reference only, to power sources.
- Old style molds for weapon ornaments now have a convert button to change them into a new style ornament augment.

- Fixed the name of the recipe for Tome of Savage Volley Rk. II.
- Fixed all cases where multiple recipes for a tradeskill shared the same recipe name.

- Fixed all cases where multiple recipes for a tradeskill shared the same recipe name.
- Tradeskill-created ornaments are now augments.

- - Bosses are now immune to many crowd control effects.
- - The task now locks on element 6 instead of element 3.
- - Sila will no longer give her medallion to the person that gives her Hilus's Journal, as this method of receiving the medallion doesn't update the task. The task expects the medallion to be looted from the Forceful Presence.
- - This task will now reward a minimum of 5 currency on completion instead of scaling down to 0 at low levels.

March 16, 2018 - Producers Letter

"Twas the 19th year Norrath had become
Nearly two decades of friends and fun
Adventurers surround of many skills and sizes
All questing fiercely for untold epic prizes.


I raise my tankard of JumJum to you all
Adventuring together, we shall never fall
I toast all of EverQuest's heroes and fans
And will look to see you in our lands.
 

TRAIN!"


-Holly "Windstalker" Longdale, Executive Producer, Senior Druid, Aspiring Bard

Hail and well met, Norrathians!

It's a time for merriment as we all celebrate EverQuest's 19th Anniversary!

It's hard to believe another year has come and gone, and this year is already flying by. As always, we like to take this chance to remind you all how appreciative we are to you, our player family, for sticking with us year after year. It is truly because of you that Norrath continues on.

Staying true to form, there are a whole variety of ways to celebrate this anniversary with us and it's hard to know where to even start! The team has put together four new missions for the 19th Anniversary, each with hidden bonus rewards for you to try to complete. In addition, like we do every year, we'll be bringing back previous anniversary content going back through our 5th anniversary. These events will turn on and off at different times, and we're keeping the festivities going well into May.

If you want to get something to commemorate this special occasion there is a new mount available from the jubilant merchant and some limited-time armor sets available on the Marketplace. I hope you're as excited for the Lava Sessiloid mount as I am!

On ALL servers we'll be celebrating anniversary with 50% bonus experience starting today and lasting until the end of the month.  This bonus also applies to our newest Progression Server, Coirnav! We dove into Coirnav ourselves this morning on our 19th Anniversary livestream, where a few of our team members started their EverQuest adventure over with new characters. You can watch the replay here.

The team here was hard at work to make sure EverQuest's 19th Anniversary is a great one, and if you want more details about everything happening then can you can read up more here.

The team has also been hard at work on other content... including this year's expansion! We're not ready to share anything yet, but that time will come soon enough.

Once again, happy 19th Anniversary Norrathians!

 

See you in Norrath!

Lauren "Mooncast" McLemore

Producer, EQ & EQ2

- Bristlebane's been rummaging around in his vault recently and has found some once-lost items! Check the Marketplace for limited time offers during the 19th Anniversary!


*** Items ***
- Adjusted the base modification of Jeweled Skull of Null to make the stats closer to the group version if you have completed no Veeshan's Peak raids.

- Fixed a problem where combine failures were not always returning the tools used.

- End of Empire (Mission and Raid) - Fixed a bug that could cause the Unhammered and No Outbreaks achievements to fail when they should not.

- Balance of Power (Raid) - Fixed an issue that would prevent completion of the Ghosted achievement.
- Fell Foliage (Mission) - Lowered the maximum number of players allowed in this mission to 6.
- Jondin's Fern Flower quest can now be completed.
