Today, a new EverQuest II server is opening called Isle of Refuge. Similar in almost every way to existing live servers such as Antonia Bayle, Maj’Dul, Halls of Fate, Skyfire, and Splitpaw, this new server does have one unique difference. All non-Marketplace items which are flagged HEIRLOOM can be freely traded between players as well as bought and sold on the broker. This harkens back to the days of Kingdom of Sky when almost all loot was tradeable.
The Isle of Refuge server is now open as of 12:30pm PDT.
In response to some questions about whether the new Isle of Refuge server shares anything in common with Stormhold, the Time-Locked Expansion server, we got some answers from RadarX:
Will there be an EU Free Trade server?
There will not be an EU Free Trade server at this time.
Can I buy a Krono / Heroic Character / House / Mount on the Marketplace?
The Isle of Refuge does not have a limited marketplace. Anything that you can purchase on a normal server can also be purchased on Isle of Refuge with the sole exception of a character transfer token as these could not be used.
Is Isle of Refuge a Progression server?
No, The Isle of Refuge has access to all expansion content.
