Desert of Flames Unlocks on Stormhold and Deathtoll on Oct 8

Written by Feldon on . Posted in EQ2, Game Updates & Maintenance, TLE/Prestige Servers

From Roshen on the EQ2 Forums:

Are you ready to explore the first expansion, Desert of Flames, on the Time-Locked Expansion Servers? Players on both servers have voted to unlock this expansion, and this content will unlock on Stormhold and Deathtoll on Thursday, October 8, 2015!

DOF PCSLP m07.ai

Both Stormhold and Deathtoll will have a short downtime starting at 7AM PDT on Thursday, October 8. We anticipate that this downtime will be less than one hour.

Once this downtime is complete, the following will be available on these servers:

  • Adventure, Crafting and Guild Levels will go to 60
  • Ability mod will become available on items and buffs.
  • Guild Banks will now be available.
  • Macro Voice Over’s will now be available.

The Time-Locked Expansion (TLE) servers offer a unique EverQuest 2 experience different from our traditional servers. Are you unfamiliar with special servers like Stormhold and Deathtoll? You can get more information about what these servers are in the post here!

    Still find it curious that a mass wave of casuals managed to swing from very-much-no-DoF to yes-DoF in one month.

    But I guess we’ll never know, since the numbers never get posted…will we?

      I also think that it was rigged (read: they ignored the results to some degree). It might be that a majority (50.1%+) was for unlocking but no way on earth did an 80% NO change into a 66% YES.

      Anyway, I enjoyed my time on the TLE server, but now will play the remaining Krono-time on Live and see where it will lead me.
      TLE was a nice experiment but it failed for me 🙁

        What may have happened is the ones that did not want it may not be logging in as much, and the ones the did want have been. Much like when Cities/States in the US run elections in April/May because they know the only ones that will come out for the election is the ones that want it to pass

          I don’t know. If something is important to me, I vote for or against it. Especially, if it’s from in front of your screen 😉

          Some raw numbers would be nice (for both votes). We’ll never see them but hey, one can wish 🙄

    It shouldn’t be unlocked. It is way too soon.

      It was not too soon. Lasted for 4 months. That’s ample time. Hell, the original game was around 10 months before DoF came out and was cleared months before its release in Sep 05 even with all the artificial grind, gating, lack of guides, and oodles of other features. This was long enough, time to move on or else the server will become dead by people who are bored.

        Sorry to burst your bubble, but you’re wrong. It was 2 (!) months. And that is not “ample time” for many

          I agree with you Kallinia. I play on Stormhold and I see as much if not more grouping going on in pre-DOF zones than I do in DOF.
