On Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014 at 2:00 PM PDT, EQ2′s new community manager Margaret “Luperza” Krohn (aka PurrfectStorm), hosted the first EverQuest II Insider livecast on Twitch. This 1 hour broadcast included EQ brand manager Adam Key, Holly “Windstalker” Longdale, Akil “Lyndro” Hooper, Chris GarlickGary Daugherty, and Nathan “Kaitheel” McCall.

Alas, a recording of the livecast was not preserved either by SOE or Twitch (due to a settings glitch), so this episode joins Doctor Who and other vital shows as missing presumed wiped.

That said, a few resourceful players who watched the Livecast were good enough to take notes and so we can paraphrase them below:

  • Holly and Akil talked about current topics including Bristlebane Day, as well as previewing some Player Studio items that will be coming soon, including a very nice looking yacht or fishing boat with oars and other gear. Luperza mentioned that Player Studio topics will be covered in their own livesteam.
  • We got to hear the ‘April Fool’s intro music’ (archived for posterity on Zam) and the new meatbeast vid was also shown (if you haven’t seen it then look here).
  • Holly talked a little about All-Access (subscription, Krono, or Prepaid cards)
    • All Access players will get access to new zones / heritage quests 1-2 weeks earlier than other players.
    • Those with new All Access account will have double xp weekends.
    • More All-Access exclusive items on the loyalty merchants.
  • The schedule for updates will be more public so that we can see how Smokejumper’s weekly/monthly update idea is working.
  • EverQuest II Roadmap/Blueprint — Upcoming plans for EQ2 with feedback from players.
  • Contested HighKeep Previewed
    • new skeleton models like crawling, one legged and some even use their head as weapon [IMG]
    • quests: drop quests, quests from items, daily missions for etyma (2 mission givers: 1 at entrance, 2nd at the entrance to picklaw part)
    • plunderable loot which you can place in your house
    • some items might be marked with our name (there is special achievement for marking all of them: Vandal title)
    • achievement for killing all nameds in the zone
    • hidden rare trophies in the trash – if you gather all you get Body Snatcher (?) title
    • new armor appearances
  • New High Keep Guild Hall
  • Player Studio will open up (later this year) to submissions from Germany, UK, France for players with an SOE Station account.
  • Developer picks for Housing Leaderboards – returning soon.
  • New Raid zone (ToV Wing 3) — Next Month
  • 10 More AA points (requires level 95)– next week.

Thanks to Sambril, Kinya of Babagra Polish EQ2 fansite, and Errrorr for their note-taking!

Keep your eye out for interesting Patchcraft mobs all over Norrath and earn your Patchcraft Slayer achievements! All your favorites from last year return, some with new rewards.

On April 1st things really get hopping! New this year… bunnies. Everywhere, bunnies. You may have been stumbling over them around the world, and on April 1st you can collect them for three new achievements. Returning are the Jester’s superior gardensin Enchanted Lands, giving harvestables from all holidays. Frostfell crafting stations will also pop up in Enchanted Lands on the Highest of Silly Days.

EQ2 News from LandmarkLive Episode #7

Written by Feldon on . Posted in EQ2, Live Events

webcast-landmarklive7

Community Managers for EverQuest (Ry “Roshen” Schuller), EverQuest II (Margaret “Luperza” Krohn), and EverQuest Next & EQN Landmark (Colette “Dexella” Murphy) held a webcast on Twitch today to talk about the Year of EverQuest, including updates about the franchise, and with specific news about each game.

Wikia Launches EverQuest Portal

First up, Simon Cox, Director of Programming at Wikia was on the phone to announce a new feature from Wikia that ties all the EverQuest games together.  Developed in partnership with SOE, the new site called EverQuest Portal is a cross-game metasite for the entire franchise. To promote this new feature, Wikia is holding a sweepstakes to give away 10 product keys to the EverQuest II: Tears of Veeshan expansion as well as Trailblazer (alpha/beta) keys to EQNext Landmark.

After the jump, read more notes from this livecast including EverQuest swag (not just at the SOE Live store!), EQ2 Livestreams, and a bullet-point News update…

Update Notes: Thursday, March 20, 2014 — 2 new HQs, Chronoportals

Written by Feldon on . Posted in EQ2, Game Updates & Maintenance, Grouping, Itemization, Live Events, Raiding

From the EQ2 Forums:

All EverQuest 2 Servers will come down on March 20th, 2014 at 7:00 AM PDT for an update. The expected downtime is approximately two hours.

WEEKLY FEATURE
Two new Heritage Quests are now available for players to pursue:

  • Speak to Loremaster Dorondal in icy Thurgadin. He has many treasures to offer, and among the most valuable lies Zlandicar’s Heart. If you can find what he’s looking for, the Heart will be yours!
  • High among the cliffs of Steamfont, a gnome sits, wondering at his fate. Unable to descend the sheer rock wall, he puts pen to paper to ensure his story is told before the elements – or worse – take him from this world. To follow in his footsteps is to put oneself in grave danger, but the pull of the Hero Bracers cannot be denied!

Note: Portions of these quests will require the Tears of Veeshan expansion to complete.

Editor’s Note: These quests can be completed through grouping, although raiding may provide a chance at a better version of the reward.

Brewday Returns to Norrath — Runs March 6th to March 17th

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Art, Appearance, Housing, EQ2, Live Events, Tradeskill

From the EQ2 Forums:

 brewday

It’s Brewday once again in Norrath, and there’s nothing like the Dwarven celebration of Brell and beer to bring your spirits up! Adventurers across Norrath are invited to sample exotic brews, complete festive quests, and visit the mysterious Bar of Brell.

New for 2014:
Beer Tokens: Better than real money (because beer!), this special currency is a new quest reward option and can be used to purchase event-exclusive items.

Brewday Recipes: Take a break from drinking to craft some brand new Brewday items! Balin Copperfoot in the Bar of Brell has copies of “Brewday Accouterments to Craft V,” as well as previous editions.

New Quests: There’s some strange noises coming from below the Bar of Brell, and it’s not the band, the brawlers, or the boasting patrons. Speak with the bartender to learn more!

Brewday Bounty: Visit merchant Balin Copperfoot in the Bar of Brell for seven new Brewday items.

The festivities of Brewday returned to Norrath today and will run through March 17th.

As posted on the EQ2 Forums by Calthine of ZAM:

Brewday kicks off on March 6th and your faithful ZAM staff has been working hard to bring you all the help you need. While drunkenly stumbling through the Bar of Brell we helped Mraugl Stonecrusher investigate the strange noises under the bar andserved a lot of drinks! In the Butcherblock Mountains the pesky goblins trying to ruin the local Brewday festivities can once again be gleefully knocked over by clover carpets. The event also features a new crafting scroll, Brewday Accoutrements to Craft V, and a new Beer Token currency good for wares from Balin Copperfoot!

Back by popular demand we also offer you our updated Brewday Quest Tracker! Happy drinking!

As posted on the EQ2 Forums by Niami of EQ2Traders:

Brewday launches in a couple hours, and I am finally finished the story that goes along with my Brewday 2014 Preview. Yep, I am cutting it close to the wire, but I had a really good excuse. Truly! :p

Enjoy the festivities, and remember that the event ends at the end of the day on March 17th (St. Patrick’s Day). Get ready to go forth and earn yourself some Beer Tokens, and remember to send out your improved pack pony for holiday harvestables, if you have upgraded him!

Since EQ2 is going to have weekly updates going forward, we might as well get an acronym going for it. So… This Week In Norrath, we can expect:

 

Erollisi Day 2014 Goes Live!

Written by Feldon on . Posted in EQ2, Live Events

Erollisi Day went live this morning, and ZAM and EQ2Traders have already posted their guides with the new event information.

From the EQ2 ZAM announcement:

Erollisi Day is an annual Live Event which coincides with the Valentine’s Day holiday. It is held in honor and celebration of Erollisi Marr, the Goddess of Marksmanship and Love and sister of Mithaniel Marr, the Truthbringer. The Sisterhood of the Erollisi, along with Aaronolis Swornlove, are active participants in the act of spreading her word of love.

Should you need a hand looking for roses to give away, sorting out the Chronomages, or making a new topiary, we’ve got it for you at ZAM!

Erollisi Day Guide at EQII ZAM!

And if you’re completely crazy about your alts (really, who isn’t?) you might enjoy our:

Erollisi Day Quest Tracker!

From the EQ2Traders announcement:

What does the racket of a barrel full of goblins have to do with Erollisi Day in any way, shape or form? My Muse seems to think they go together in Curtain Call, the short story to go along with the E-Day preview. Erollisi Day officially kicks off at midnight Pacific tonight (well, one minute after midnight, but close enough!), so get ready for love notes, hard candies, roses galore, and … curtains!

What if someone could take a screenshot of every item that could be placed in a House, Guild Hall, or Dungeon, and then provide information about where that item is acquired, either from a Merchant, Recipe, or Quest.

Well you don’t need to wish any longer because such a site exists. Lera’s EQ2Furniture.com is a comprehensive catalogue of every house item in EQ2, with screenshots from multiple angles, as well as data on how to acquire each item. The vast majority of this information was hand-entered, so this has surely been a monumental undertaking.

EQ2 ZAM: Frostfell Returns to Norrath!

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Art, Appearance, Housing, EQ2, Live Events, Tradeskill

From EQ2 ZAM:

frostfellzam

The season of giving and cheer has arrived! Frostfell will begin following the downtime on Thursday, December 12, and this year brings about a festive season of change.

This year Frostfell introduces one new quest, A Deepice Mystery, which explores the altered Frostfell Wonderland Village and must be completed before several older quests may be obtained. Many new craftables are available to tradeskillers this year, resulting in items such as Gingerbread Plushies and a Glacier building block set. Several returning quests have new reward choices or tokens added to them.

Players with extra “gifties” from the Gigglegibber Gifty Storehouse can exchange them for Frozen Tokens of E’ci on the Enchanted Lands dock. Santa Glug can be found with his bag of goodies inside the Frostfell Wonderland Village for players to receive their daily presents. Crafters can finally rejoice as they obtain the first ever Permanent Frostfell Crafting Stations!

ZAM is pleased to offer alt-a-holics an updated Frostfell Quest Tracker. Print it out and chart up to 15 of your characters’ progress. We also have an image gallery of the new zone which you can see by clicking on the image below. Happy Frostfell!

It has been many years since the moon Luclin mysteriously exploded, sending debris crashing to Norrath. The catastrophic damage split the surface of the planet into the divided islands now known as the “Shattered Lands.” Despite the near-destruction of their homelands, the survivors of the Shattering and their descendants went on to accomplish great deeds, and all Norrathians celebrate their triumph at the annual Heroes’ Festival.

The Chronoportals Have Returned: March 21-28, 2013

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Live Events

From the EQ2 Forums:

From 12:01 a.m. Thursday, March 21st, through 11:59 p.m. Thursday, March 28th, log in to EQII and take part in a look back at Norrathian days of yore.

The EQII Team has created this fun event as an homage to EverQuest in honor of the anniversary of the EverQuest franchise, and although the lore doesn’t exactly fit the current story of EQII, they decided to make it extra enjoyable for those who were around for the first iteration of Norrath. Adventurers who take part in this journey through time will find some silly nods to EQ and moments of nostalgia as we reminisce about our heritage.

This year’s event sees new rewards including equipment (the old stuff was great when the event started, but has been getting a bit long in the tooth), as well as some great EQ paintings. Zam is on the ball and has completely updated their Chronoportals section with all the new info, quests, and rewards from this event for 2013.

UPDATE: It looks like our report of new equipment was erroneous.

Moonlight Enchantments (Grottoes) New Items

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Live Events

On the 20th day of every month, the grottoes of Norrath open for a short time providing players an opportunity to acquire unique house items. Although it was always intended that they would be expanded, the Moonlight Enchantments have experienced few changes since their inception — until now. This month’s event sees additional house plants and sundry items including the oft-requested “Water Tile”, all told 19 new items.

Tip of the hat to Kinya of the Polish EQ2 fan site Babagra for sending me the first screenshots of these items. Niami Denmother has also updated EQ2Traders with a writeup of the revised event. And EQ2 Zam has the new information as well under each vendor. Thus far, other sites we checked out are still showing outdated information.

By the way, not everyone is enamored with the fog and other effects on the Water Tile. The EQ2 team are working to eliminate these effects so the effect is more realistic when these tiles are used in larger quantities to simulate a water feature, moat, etc.
