Greetings citizens of Norrath!
Fall is on the doorstep! What does that mean? Expansion news, of course!
We have some epic adventures in store this year as we delve into undiscovered areas of a familiar continent in our thirteenth expansion, EverQuest II: Kunark Ascending! Quite a bit of time has passed since we have explored Kunark’s secrets and there are some great stories to be told and adventures to be had. Danger awaits you in the Crypt of Dalnir, Kaesora, Warslik’s Wood and more!
Here’s a small peek of one of the new NPCs that will be in this expansion!
The launch of EverQuest II: Kunark Ascending is scheduled for November. We’ll have a lot more to share with you regarding EverQuest II: Kunark Ascending in October when we start talking about expansion features, open up pre-orders, and make beta available.
In addition to working on the expansion all year, launching Game Updates 100 and 101, Progression Servers, and event server updates, the team has also put together a beta for some new PvP Battlegrounds content that you’ll see in early September. More news coming next week on Battlegrounds!
And, to take the leap into the leaves of fall, we are running a series of promotions from September through to the expansion launch:
- This weekend, members get 40% off in-store purchases from September 1st 12PM PDT through September 6th 12PM PDT. At the same time we’ll be serving up Double XP for EVERYONE!
- EverQuest II: Terrors of Thalumbra will also be on sale at 50% off from September 1st 12PM PDT through October 5th 12PM PDT. Note that the option to purchase the Collector’s or Premium Edition of EverQuest II: Terrors of Thalumbra that comes with unique bonus items won’t be available after pre-orders forEverQuest II: Kunark Ascending begins in October.
- To help you get your characters prepared for our next expansion, we are going to run another weeks-long “Gear Up, Level Up” event this year. There will be bonuses each week in October through to expansion launch, like adventure, AA, tradeskill XP bonuses, status boosts, and more!
There is a lot to come in the coming weeks, so stay tuned! We are grateful to each and every one of our players and thank you for your support!

Updates about Kunark Ascending from Kander:
It is new level 100 content, new quests, new overland zone, new dungeons, new features. There is no re-use.
One Overland zone larger than Thalumbra. We are going to be making close to the usual amount of heroic and raid content, maybe a bit more, but this expansion we will be making more Solo and Advanced Solo dungeons as well. So expect 8 to 12 solo dungeons, all in the 4 or 5 themes we are using.
We’ll be doing Gear Up, Level Up Starting in October, with double XP, double this, double that, every week up until the expansion launch! Plus… well… More later.
There will be some new character progression. But no, no “level” cap increase. It’s not AAs. It’s something different.
Domino is working on TS content.
The rumors have been swirling for months that we will see a return to Epic Weapons in this expansion. More details in October apparently!
