From Laylaih on the EQ2 Forums:

The moment we’ve been talking about for months has finally arrived: it’s the launch day for GU100! Are you ready to voyage to the Scourge Wastes and take on terrifying new adversaries? Will you be scouting for shinies to complete over forty new collections? Is your heart ready to connect itself to its true mate? All this and more awaits you with the launch of GU100!

Access to special zones is one of the perks of having an All Access membership. In GU100 we’ve added Zek, the Scourge Wastes and Scourge Keep. Also, Fabled versions of Ruins of Varsoon, Temple of Cazic-Thule, Chamber of Immortality, and Sanctum of Fear that have been updated for level 100 players. You’ll need an active membership to adventure in these zones.

Before you head off to the Island of Zek, take a few moments to revisit the earlier previews:

And there’s more! Also coming with GU100 are the following new additions to Norrath that are available to all players, regardless of membership:

Heartbound and The Shard of Love

Are you ready to bind yourself to your one and only in game? Seek out the Heartstone and you can become Heartbound to another player! To continue this joyous occasion of love and merriment, the Shard of Love is now available as an Agnostic zone for levels 20-100. It is also be available on Stormhold, the time-locked expansion server!

New Equipment Stat: Resolve

Strengthening your character’s resolve will allow you to take on stronger and stronger opponents. All Terrors of Thalumbra items have gained the resolve stat to help get you started!

New In the Marketplace

There are many great additions coming to the Marketplace when GU100 launches! Ever wish you could bottle up your hard-earned experience and share it with your friend or guildmate? Wait no longer, you can learn more about the new Experience Vial Systemhere.

Owl Mounts and Owl Pets are also available today! There will be one variation of the Owl Mount that can only be earned in GU100 content; the other can be purchased from the Marketplace! The “Night Owl Egg,” also available in the Marketplace, grants one random owl pet upon opening.

    Some infomation people might find useful on this new xpac

    -You need to speak Druzaic (Words of Pure Magic)
    -You need to do all of Tusk’s quests including the repeatable at least once.
    -The sneaky refered to is Grassblade (Only appears after doing all Tusk’s quests and repeatable)
    -There are many lacerator quality procs on gear but swap WDB for crit/pot.
    -All the new jewellery is procless but front loads the stats including huge amounts of potency and ability mod among other huge stat boosts. Right now it seems a sort of healthy place where procs help the group more and solo boosts help you more and if you play a support you want to find your middle ground.
    -The Branch comes from a quest from the trent near spires (requires Druzaic and a previous quest)
    -The Acorn is currently missing.
    -The Crown comes from the advanced solo based on clues. (The riddle talks about 21 to unlock it and a crown with 21 indentations to unlock it is found in the advanced solo. I belive sigils are needed)
    -The advanced solo requires you to clear all the trash outside to spawn mob that lets you into the castle.

    The Acorn is missing? I got my Acorn update in the cave, I’m now stuck on how to progress in Scourge Keep. I’m not actually sure if I’ve finished the zone, but I have a quest telling me to kill a couple of names I can’t find.

    I am hopeful. I feel things have gone down hill sense the confusion of Rum Cellar. 13 is my lucky number… Don’t mess this up for me!
    P.s. ESO still has my subscription.

    Do all the quests at the dock. One of them sends you to the cave off the field where the logging place is near three toes lake. There is a clickable jar in the cave which updates the Acorn.
