What’s New About Fallen Gate?

This will be a time-locked expansion server where expansions unlock automatically. In addition, Fallen Gate will have a new twist on Heritage Quests. Completing a Heritage Quest on this server will not only provide the quest reward – but an additional reward on EVERY server you play on.

All Races. All Classes.

Ever wanted to play a Beastlord or Channeler in classic EverQuest II? You can on Fallen Gate! All classes and races will be available when it launches!

Special Note: Players will still need the class/race features to play premium race and classes. Channeler and Beastlord Epics and certain class specific quests will only be available when the corresponding expansion content has unlocked on Fallen Gate.

Heritage Quest Focus

Completing Heritage Quests will award Achievements and unlock new claimable items.

For example, after you completed the Journeyman’s Boots Heritage Quest on Fallen Gate you’ll have a reward waiting for you for every character on your account on EVERY server.  You’ll be able to obtain a level 100 version of J-Boots on your regular play server, a level 90 version on Stormhold, and even a level 50 version for your Fallen Gate characters. Once you complete the Heritage Quest on Fallen Gate, these items can be purchased for free from a Heritage vendor located in Freeport and Qeynos.

Content Unlocks Every 12 Weeks

Players won’t vote to unlock content on Fallen Gate. Instead, every 12 weeks, expansion content will automatically unlock. Content that was released in between expansions will release 6 weeks after its corresponding expansion has released.

That means 12 weeks of classic EverQuest II, 12 weeks of Desert of Flames, 12 weeks of Kingdom of Sky, and so on. This also means GU and Adventure Pack content will release in between expansions. For example, 6 weeks after Echoes of Faydwer is released, you’ll have access to Fallen Dynasty.

All Access Membership Required

Like other progression and special ruleset servers, you’ll need an All Access Membership to access Fallen Gate. All Access also includes additional includes additional great benefits, like 10% off most Marketplace purchases, and a claimable 500DBC grant each month! For more details and to sign up for membership, visit www.daybreakgames.com/allaccess.

We’re excited to have you join us for the new Fallen Gate Time-Locked Expansion Server, starting on Tuesday, June 27, 2017!

    I might pop in and check it out since I’m subbed anyway. I enjoy TLE servers for the most part.

    Another stupid idea how to devide already low playerbase. MMORPG is not Diablo, you can’t make seasons/events here and expect them being popular, or even becoming the core gameplay. Instead of trying to make our hands full of another boring grind for a tiny/side upgrade, you’d better add something interesting on life servers, or for a change tried to fix the class balance.

      Agreed, but good luck with seeing them do anything reasonable or sensible.

    Given the tie in with live servers, they should have made this new TLE available to F2P. It could have attracted new players to EQ2 that are otherwise put off by the steep learning curve of 1-100 and all the game features added during the last 12 years.

    Then, when they complete heritage quests they might be inclined to try out a normal server once they have enough play time on the TLE server, and may even subscribe.

    A lost opportunity.

    They dont even have enough players to sustain the LIVE servers with a decent amount of activity outside of leveling/raiding.

    Nor does Stormhold survive this. During the FG beta I managed to get ONE group going throughout the week, during all times of the day.

    I dont know what world the people over at DBG works at, but it sure as hell isnt the empty Norrath worlds.

      Exactly! :lol: I mean what in the hell are they thinking over there? The only thing I can think is they are looking through a prism of greed and looking for every opportunity for a quick cash grab. I guess that is the imperative until the whales all run dry and then its time to turn off the lights.

    Fortunately I just picked up a Switch w/ Zelda so I’m going to be busy for the summer. Nothing left in EQ two for me except raiding and that is getting old as well, I miss when we actually got raid content in the spring and summer.
