Nights of the Dead
Nights of the Dead is creeping into Norrath and this year the merchants are stocked up with new goodies (which Niami has pictures of over on EQ2 Traders). Previous quest content and achievements make their return, and crafters now have a new recipe book to spook their house guests with. There is one new collection this year, but no new quests or achievements.

Stormhold (TLE) will enjoy its first full live event! Nights of the Dead will be activated on the server, with the exception of the Headless Horseman.

The event runs from 12:01am PT on Thursday, October 6, 2016 (3:01am ET) and concludes at 11:59pm PT on Wednesday, November 2, 2016 (2:59am ET on Nov 3rd). The event was extended one day (originally scheduled to end Nov 1) after starting late.

UPDATE: There were some cobwebs in the way, but as of 1:30pm ET, NotD is live!

Frostfell Returns: A Guide to New Quests

Written by Cyliena on . Posted in EQ2, Guide, Live Events

Frostfell 2015‘Tis the season once again for Santa Glug gifties, ice dragons, crafting binges, and more. Frostfell kicks off following an update on Thursday, December 10th (eta 8am PT/11am ET) and runs through 7am PT/10am ET on Thursday, January 7, 2016. Last year’s content makes a return appearance, and due to my insane finals week I’m going to just point you here for those older guides (the 2014 quest tracker is here).

Frostfell won’t be on the TLE servers, but look for Frostfell trees in Freeport and Qeynos, where merchants will be selling seasonal items! Read more here.

This year Frostfell has a hoard of new items—gifts, crafted, purchased, and craft rewards—which you can check out on Niami’s EQ2 Traders Frostfell write-up. There are five new quests, but only if you own the Terrors of Thalumbra expansion, as they require access to the city of Maldura. You begin the new series by speaking to Jarith Icewing at 334, -24, -1512 in the Frostfell Wonderland Village. Continue reading below for the  walkthroughs.
