From Dexella on the EQ2 Forums:
The launch of GU 100 is just around the corner! So far, we’ve unveiled The Island of Zek Scourge Wastes, the new Fabled Zones, and the raids in Scourge Keep. Today, to get you ready for the anticipated Thursday, April 28th launch, we’re going to introduce you to the new Experience Vial system!
While the content for GU 100 will be released only to All Access Members, this new Experience Vial system is accessible in the Marketplace and usable by all players! Who will you share your experience with first?
Want to get your hands on everything GU 100? Then become a member! Find out more at www.everquest2.com/membership.
UPDATE: An EQ2 player Aivet has put together an XP Vial Spreadsheet with these estimates based on 200,000 XP vials:
- 1 vial will get you from level 1 to level 31
- 9 vials to get from level 99 to level 100
- 88 vials to get from level 1 to level 100
UPDATE from Dexella:
We’ve clarified with Dev. These will not be available on Stormhold.
From Robert “Caith” Fouts on the EQ2 Forums:
Ever wish you could bottle up your hard-earned experience and share it with your friend or guildmate? Wait no longer, and allow me to introduce the new Experience Vial system!
Experience Vials will allow players to purchase empty vials off of the EverQuest 2 Marketplace for Daybreak Cash; these vials can be used to “bottle” experience points as you earn them. Once you fill up an empty vial, you will be able to claim a full vial which you can give to a friend or alt, sell on the broker, or even save for yourself for later.
Here is how the system works:
