  • Game logins
  • Web and forum logins for all Daybreak sites, including account creation

Time Zone Conversions

  • PST: 7:00am ~ 10:00am
  • EST: 10:00am ~ 1:00pm
  • GMT: 15:00 ~ 18:00
  • CET: 16:00 ~ 19:00

and from the EQ2 Forums:


  • Altar of Malice [Heroic] Dungeons now have a chance to spawn an extra encounter once the zone boss has been defeated.
  • Hit points for all Altar of Malice Solo, Heroic, and Contested zones have been slightly reduced.

Ossuary: Cathedral of Bones [Raid]

  • Primordial Ritualist Villandre V’Zher should gain increments of “Malice” at a slower rate when the various adds in the encounter are present.
  • Primordial Ritualist Villandre V’Zher’s “Touch of Malice” spell should now properly apply to all engaged players as well as no longer be blocked by line of sight. Once this update has been applied to all servers she will make her return to the Cathedral.

Ossuary: Choir of T’Vyl [Event Heroic]

  • Ubis the Dagger will now be visible to the entire group if the target of his attack points him out to the group (targets him)
  • Corrected an issue that was causing the encounters within this zone to reset at random
  • Corrected an issue that was causing “Strength of the Legion” and “Spiritual Downfall” to not lower damage when increments lowered

Temple of Ssraeshza: Echoes in Time [Raid]

  • Disciples of Luclin adds in the Ka’Rah Ferun encounter should despawn if the boss is not present or is inactive.

Castle Highhold [Heroic]
Gudre Blackhand’s ability, Diving Pelican, will no longer prevent targets from taunting.


  • [eq2u]Bulwark of Malice[/eq2u], [eq2u]Core of the Fanatic[/eq2u], [eq2u]Bonecaster’s Focus Crystal[/eq2u] have had their bonuses re-distributed throughout their level ranges.

  • Bonecaster’s Focus Crystal has had its ability mod increased.
  • Quested Malice Gemstones are now correctly no-trade.
  • Fixed an issue that allowed Aspect of Granite to stack with Aspect of Granite II.
  • Corrected an issue that allowed some PvP War Runes to work on PvE servers.
  • More powerful cyan adornments are now available from Ossuary of Malevolence [Contested] and Brokenskull Bay: Spoils of Maraud [Contested].
  • A Green Malice Conversion Stone may now be purchased from Khadra the Ferrin Merchant.

    It seems to have gone down at 4AM PST, not the 7AM PST that was reported

      My bad, looks like general maint. was at 4am PST, servers came back up at 5:26AM PST, so the 7AM PST Server maint. is still likely a go.

      I was confused with 2 maint. scheduled for the same day and the fact that the 4AM maint. was not reported on the forums.

        General maintenance is at 7. EQ2 Server maintenance was at 4.


  • Silzin
