Double Guild XP Weekend (July 18-20) and EQ2 Caption Contest for July

Written by Feldon on . Posted in EQ2, Live Events


As announced on this week’s EQ2 Insider webcast, this is a Double Guild XP Weekend! The event will run through 11:59pm Sunday night Pacific Daylight time.

EQ2 characters who complete writs, tradeskill work orders, completing certain quests, kill certain NPCs, or turn in status items receive Personal Status on their Character. 10% of that amount is also given to the character’s guild. For this Double Guild XP weekend, that amount doubles to 20%! Note that there is a rare Legends of Norrath-looted item which increases your normal amount to 11%. It’s unknown if that stacks this weekend.

From the EQ2 Forums:


It’s time to band together with your fellow guildmates or find a guild and venture into the world! This weekend starting Friday, July 18th, 2014 at 12:00 PM PDT until Sunday, July 20th, 2014 at 11:59 PM PDT, the EverQuest II Development Team is providing you ALL with DOUBLE guild experience!

Also, if you didn’t tune into the latest EverQuest II Insider, we’ve announced our July Contest! Submit your photo to the sweepstakes for your chance to win 2500 Station Cash! This contest starts at 12:00 AM PDT Friday, July 18th, 2014 and ends at 11:59 PM PDT on Thursday, July 31st, 2014!

    The LoN item does have an effect…a 1000 status item contributes 309 to the guild with the event going on…

    Keep in mind that the LON item isn’t 11% more, or 10% like the description of the item says, it’s just 1% more. I spent a year trying to get that blasted thing thinking it gave 10% more… but it’s 10% of your contribution, which is 10% of 10%, which is 1% added. :\ I was a sad panda the day I finally got that thing. 😥
    /grumbles about the lying @#^!# that put the description on there like that.

      Just to be clear, I as grumbling about the person who wrote the description on the LON loot card itself. =P Not grumbling about the article above. =P
      I’m sure Feldon knows we all very much appreciate having EQ2wire here, particularly during recent events of difficulties/impossibilities many of us had trying to get to anything SOE related. lol

    Maybe I haven’t been paying attention in the past, but does the bonus seem higher this time around? It looks to be triple the normal amount.

    300 guild xp for every 1000 Status earned. And then it says there is a 200% server bonus. Isn’t it usually only 100% (double)?

    Looks like members are getting 200% and everyone else gets 100%. Good stuff.
