Tonight is the last night of Frostfell until later this year, while tomorrow sees the unlocking of Kingdom of Sky on the Time-Locked Expansion servers. Meanwhile on live servers, in addition to a number of content fixes, we will also see a potentially significant change to AAs. Abilities that used to grant Crit Bonus will now grant Potency instead.
Finally we must say goodbye to a feature that has worked inconsistently at best for many years but must have proven too difficult to fix. With tomorrow’s update, the PvP Arena feature will be disabled in EverQuest II, with the rewards from that content, including unique house pets, being moved to the Loyalty merchant.
From the EQ2 Forums:
TIME-LOCKED EXPANSION SERVERS
- All encounters received a global balance update that can be adjusted dynamically by development.
- Level 20+ encounters now mitigate damage based on level and tier.
- All blue stats have been unlocked with the exception of crit bonus.
